Decorated Notebook

Hello friends
Today's project is a decorated notebook.
I think I'm a little obsessed with buying notebooks, I discovered I had 20+
in a drawer, all different sizes and designs so thought it was time I
utilised them!  Simple project, the cover is a piece of scrap patterned paper
and then adorned with a ribbon strip and Sapphire Victorian dies.
This notebook is featured over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
blog here for step by step photos.

Worth mentioning is E-Z Runner Micro -
you can buy this as a dispenser and also purchase refills.
I've found this brilliant for ribbon and lace, it dispenses a fine strip of adhesive.
I do struggle getting the backing off certain 'red' double sided tapes.

I'm actually using this notebook now, it sits on my desk at my city job
and is getting quite a few compliments :)
Take care friends, have a great weekend and look out for
the Charity Kit tomorrow.
