How to Make a Notebook Cover with Fabric by Jennifer Vanderbeek.

Whether you’re decorating a pre-made notebook or putting the finishing touches on a book you’ve made yourself, there’s nothing that puts it over the top like custom endpapers. In this project I used the same stamp for the cover as the end papers for continuity and even added a string closure to keep it snugly closed as the book gets filled up in the coming year.

Let It Snow Handmade Card by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello everyone! If you don’t know I live in Florida and snow for us is only on cards, photos or when we travel during the winter. Today, I used my entire imagination to create a Snow card and you will be surprised when you find out what I used to make my card.


Step 1

I stamped the branch using VersaFine Onyx Black. Then using the Misti, I stamped again the image in VersaMark slightly above of the black image. I combined two different images to create the scenery because I don’t have a single image in all my stuff that offered me that I wanted…can you believe it!


Step 2

I embossed each image with clear embossing powder and after I finished the process, I was able to sponge the sky behind using Memento Teal Zeal and expose the snow-laden branch using a masking technique. When I completed the snow and sky I decided to add a little contrast and at that moment I discovered that I don’t have Angel Pink Memento Ink but…


Step 3

I have imagination and I applied some ink with a Memento marker Angel Pink over an acrylic block and applied the ink with a sponge dauber around the sky to create the perfect contrast. To finalize the card I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Bright All Night using VersaFine Onyx Black and pasted the stamped layer over a Whisper White card base using Tear It Tape.
