Just Because--Library Card Notebook

Sometimes when you make so many cards and your creative juices really lend themselves to other projects, I just get in the mood to do other projects, so I decided that I would spend a little time this week doing just that.  I saw a plain project in a magazine using a library card to make a little notebook. I thought it was cute just as a plain notebook but I am not a plain kinda a gal so here is what I came up with :)  I had a digi template for a library card.:

I did several things on this project I haven't done for awhile, I grabbed out a SU set, (yep, I actually stamped!!! )  I really loved for a long time and used many times in card making.  The set is, Bloomin Beautiful, which has the definition, the flower and the bee,  I googled Librarian sentiments and thought the Search Engine one was very apropos and added the sentiment to the TH Library clip.

The notebook was created using chipboard, compliments of my Sassy friend, Shirley Swope, to which I added dp, and the library cards which I pretty much covered up.  I used my Zutter binding system to add the spiral binding and added enough paper inside so it could actually be used for a while.  I figured if my sister wanted to she could use some post it note pads in it later if she wanted to keep  using it, the binding rings would work for those pads too.    I added a few ribbons  and my simple notebook is complete.  Since my sister is a Librarian I think she will like it. So my time gazing through magazines was not wasted and I have created a cute project, gotten a couple hours of therapy and had a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by and if you like this project, by all means make one for someone you love, or for yourself.  The possibilities are endless.

Thanks for stopping by  and have a wonderful creative day.

This rocks Cathy. Your sister will get lots of ooohs and aaaaahs when she pulls this out of her purse. I bet you are going to get some requests for ones for her co-workers. Better get started on a supply. LOL.
