Hey! Happy Thursday!
I like having videos for you guys for these things, but I haven’t quite gotten everything up to editing and posted yet, so I’m sharing this little Sketch Book I made!
Well, I found this little notebook laying around the house. It was just a plain Kraft cardboard Notebook with a button closer. Inside are just plain white sheets – no lines nothing fancy, just a plain notebook. And I thought, ooo, this is such a GOOD size to throw in my purse and use it as an actually inspiration/idea sketch book!
I don’t always sketch out the layouts and cards that I make for tutorials and such, but ONCE in awhile an idea hits me (I had one the other day and didn’t sketch it and now I CAN’T remember it darn it!) and I like to jot it down to create it later. This is also a great tip because planning can help you save money and time when you DO get moments to sit down and create!
So I made this cute little cover for it!
I used the BE YOU Paper Kit from Fancy Pants Designs – this is CURRENTLY my FAVORITE collection out there and you can get the entire “kit” right here. Now don’t go buying them all, because I need to get more of this paper! 🙂 The “Be You” on the front of the notebook is actually the packaging from the bottom 1/4″ strip on the Scrapbook Papers in the Collection (USE THE PACKAGING!)
I also used a piece of Black, swiss dot Washi Tape that was in my drawer (Don’t ask the company/brand I don’t know!)
And Viva Decor Pearl Pen to give a little dimension and also “cover up” the mistake around the button already on the Sketch book. If you look closely, I just glued down paper all over the front, and the flap already had a button on it. I thought oh I’ll just cut out a hole in the paper and it will be great…well, it wasn’t as “clean” as I wanted it to look so I encircled it with Viva and Viola! It looks great!
Enjoy the Moments my friends! Hope you enjoying sketching projects out! Please, feel free to post pics on facebook and tag me or links in the comments here so that I can see what you sketch and what you create! You never know what could happen when you do 😉
PS – The Above Rubies Studio store is back up and running! 🙂 YAY! SO you can get your Mystery Boxes again! Can’t WAIT for Cropped!
