Just a Vintage Note

I whipped out my Bind it All to make up these quick note pads.  I began with a piece of vanilla card stock and stamped it with Stazon ink to make this paper.  All of the stamps were from Scrolls Work Stamps.  The flower was made using the SU! round scallop punch and some pages from a used college English Literature book. A little home made glimmer mist here and a little there with some cutting and twisting of petals becomes this grungy flower. A small flower punch from Paper Shapers and a pearl complete the flower center. Add a bit of sponging and that is about it.

I made this pad as a small address book and added some tabs to some of the pages using the SU! round tab punch. I then added some crackle accent on the pen to give a bit of sparkle to both of the books.  This book was also coated in Mod Podge before decorating the front for added durability.
The inside is just a stack of index cards that were punched and bound.

Hi Paula. I'm catching up today on viewing art on some of my favorite blogs. Your Mothers Day card is just gorgeous.

I also like this project and the fact that you share so many techniques on your blog. Very well done.
