Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #167

Good afternoon fellow bloggers! It's been a little over 2 months since my last blog post, I can't believe I've waited so long to post a project on here! With school winding down in just a few days, the last few months have been such a blur. Last minute school projects, school performances, field trips, and awards assemblies have kept my mind on everything except crafting! I can say that I definitely missed it!

I wanted to participate in this weeks Make it Monday challenge for Papertrey Ink because the challenge is a little bit different than usual. The challenge is DIY notebooks with Erin Lincoln. She makes the whole process look so simple, I couldn't wait to try this out and make some little notebook of my own! Since school is ending next week on Tuesday, I've been wanting to put together a little "Thank you" gift for my kids teachers. I though little school notebooks would be a great addition to the gift.

I cut each "sheet" for my notebook at 4¼" x 2¾" using 5 primary colors. I used Kraft cardstock for the outside of my notebook. The stamps sets I chose to use are Papertrey Ink's Clip Tips, Monthly Moments: May, and Back to School. I used Scor-tape the same way Erin does in the tutorial to put everything together. The notebook came together quickly, which is nice to know if I want to make a bunch more of these. What a great idea for a craft fair item also!

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully it won't be too long again before I am able to get crafty and post another project. Hope you all enjoy the beginning of your summer!
