Nevermore Journal Notebook

Nevermore Journal Notebook

I wanted to share one of my latest Halloween journals that I made recently.  This is an altered HALF composition notebook.  I take the full size notebooks down to my local printer, Minute Print It and I have them chop a stack of composition notebooks in half.  It doesn’t take them very long, just a couple of minutes.  Then I take them home and make them pretty… or in this case, spooky. 🙂  

This is a very easy project.  Just cover the front and back covers inside and out in whatever material you prefer.  I used cardstock on this one.  (I have used fabric.  I will have to post one of those next time.)  Just cut the cardstock down to fit your size of notebook and adhere.  I use one of 2 adhesives… YES paste, which is a book binding glue that is slow to dry so you have time to work with it when placing paper pieces.  Or, Quick Dry Paper Glue which dries quickly and doesn’t wrinkle your paper. 

I always dye the edges of the covers with coordinating Walnut Ink.  It makes them look nice and neat and gives them a “finished” look.  You can then embellish as you like.  I used ribbon on this one and stamped the words “Nevermore” near the crows. 

This process is easy.  Just about anyone can do it.  But is does take a bit of time.  If you’d rather not make one yourself you can always visit my Etsy store to purchase it completed.  Also, if you would like a particular design just email or convo me and I would be happy to make a special one just for you.

Quoth the Raven…

I made several new Halloween Cards and listed them on my Etsy site.  This is one of my favorites.  I used printed and solid colored cardstock from DCWV. I stamped the raven (source unknown) and the tag sentiments (from Papertrey Ink) in black ink.  It just goes to show what you can make with a few layers of cardstock, ink and a couple of stamps. 🙂

Happy Halloween!

Raven Treat Bag

This awesome treat bag is another project from our Angel meeting on August 13th.  It was designed by my good friend, Jennifer Edwards.  She used the stamp set Wicked by Oxford Impressions and The Angel Company stamp set Bone Appetite.  She simply stamped the raven with a black Momento ink pad on the white gift bag and created an adorable tag by adding black craft feathers.  How creative!!!  We all loved it.

Enjoy!
