Ready for more?


The front piece is cut using the Trinket Box Die and painted with Viva Croco Crackling Colour in copper. (It is so luscious!) I left a spot blank in the middle for the oval insert, which I stamped and watercolored with the cute Stampotique bird enjoying his warm beverage (surely a pumpkin latte?)


For the cover, I first sprayed the matboard with Distress Oxide Spray Stains to lay down some color. Then I used Dried Marigold Distress Ink to stencil on a leaf pattern. After throughly drying the ink, I added another layer of stenciled leaves but these I embossed with some of Seth Apter's Baked Velvet embossing powders.


As mentioned in the beginning, the Pocket Notebook die cuts the pages for your notebook as well as the cover pieces. You place a few sheets of folded paper (about 8.5 x 6.5 inches) with the fold lined up at the edge. I added a piece of washi tape to my die to show exactly where the fold should go. (There is no cutting blade there.)


Also as mentioned above, there is a wide range of widths you can create with this Notebook Die! I chose to make it three signatures wide by completely overlapping the spine areas (and that makes for a very sturdy spine!)
