Think and Wonder Notebook

Here's a little notebook that I made with Artistic Outpost stamps!

The kids with alphabet background and "think and wonder" are from the set Think and Wonder.  This stamp is my favorite from that set!  I stamped it here with Cranberry ink. 
The faint stamped ledger page in the background is from Ephemeral Backgrounds. That set has some great images to complement all the Artistic Outpost stamps!

I used lightweight kraft paper from a paper bag to cover chipboard for the notebook cover.  After I stamped the images, I added shading around the edges with Distress inks.
"Think and Wonder" was stamped on white card stock with Cranberry ink and clear heat embossed.  I cut them out and glued them to the cover.

I even stamped the pages inside! I used the ledger stamp on the pages, too. I stamped them lightly so notes can easily be written over it.

Once I had all the pages stamped and the covers finished, I used my Bind-It-All to cut holes and add the coil binding.  It's so easy to make coil bound books with it!

Feel free to email me if you'd like more details! 

 Thanks for visiting!!!
