Take Note journal using Daily Stories collection with Cheri Piles

Hey There, I wanted to share another booth sample I created for the show - CHA. I almost forgot to share this one with you all!! This is a fun one because I used the reverse binding technique on the spine. I also used the modeling paste with the stencil that has the days of the week! Modeling Paste is so much fun! Once the modeling paste dried, I applied ink over the top - you could use a pen, or paint. You can even tint the paste before you apply it. My daughter just LOVES this book and is using it, which means I will have to make another one for me!

On each of the pages I outlined them in black ink just using a fine tip pen. I also painted all of the edges in white. I really like all of the texture in this book! The first page are two tags from the "remember" paper, and I tied white ribbon onto them. 

I created all of the pages in this book just using basic templates I had on hand. The white paper is Bazzill card stock and it has a Pearl sheen on it. I loved using the washi tapes and stamps on these pages.

On the upper left is one of my favorite stamps from the collection - Remember Always, I love the fonts and how crisp and fresh it looks!

Here are two more journal cards, I just cut them down to fit in the book. I love having different page sizes and flaps in my books!

I wanted to have a spot to put items so I used the new Basically Essentials envelopes and manila tags. I wanted them to have more texture so I ran them through the TC Ebosser using the clocks embossing folder then I adhered ribbon to the back before adhering it to the page. Now it will stay closed when the ribbon is tied and I think it looks pretty!

I am all about circles lately so a lot of my books have half circle pages! I just think they are fun and add interest to the book when you see it all closed up seeing all of the fun shaped pages!

I love these stripes on the back of the butterfly paper! This is another tag from the new "tags" package - There are so many to choose from and I am loving playing with them!!

Aren't the journal cards fun?!? I love how bright they are!

Oh, this is a fun little envelope page that fold out, it's from the mini file folder package. It is so SWEET!!!

More tags! Yes, I LOVE them!!

Here is another bag from the new basically essentials envelopes and tags package. I put it through the TC Ebosser just like the other one to add more texture to my book. I'm always so impressed how deep the embossing is and how pretty it is!!

Clearly I also love this stamp set!! I have used the heck out of it that is for sure!!

This is my daughters FAVORITE paper - when she saw the pretty scallops with the bright fun colors she actually asked me to buy packages of just that pattern, she wanted to decorate a wall in her room with it!! 

I punched a lot of the circles out of the "circles" paper - this is a great technique to use by punching them out and putting them on pop dots you are creating extra embellishments you may not have. I always look for extra ways I can use paper like that!

I hope you are inspired and enjoyed this fun little book!
If you are looking for how I binded it, here is the tutorial: Reverse Binding. For today's book, I used chipboard on my cover and scored it then covered it with my papers.
