Altered book set

Hello! This blog post by Ingrid Danvers inspired me to make an altered book. When I saw her post, I thought, perfect, I have a "notes" stamp set :) This would make a lovely gift. Since I have 2 books at hand, I might as well altered both of them... he he. When I finished the project, I made matching cards with left over scraps.

Here are the whole set... I used SU! Parisian Breeze Specialty DP which turned out lovely because they are patterned and textured card stocks. Thick enough to make the books sturdy. I covered both front and back of book. And because it is textured, it has a lovely feel to it.

Here it is one by one...

Each flower was die cut twice and layered from SU! Blossoms Party die.

I layered Top Note die, Chocolate Chip ribbon, flower and "notes" stacked on it.
Recipe: (all by SU!)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Parisian Breeze Special DP.
Stamp set: Note to Self, Fresh Cuts
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Everything else: Scallop Edge punch, 1" circle, 1 3/8" circle punches, Chocolate Chip ribbon, Kraft corduroy buttons, Top Note die, Blossoms Party die, Big Shot machine, Stampin' Dimensionals
