Anything Goes

It's time for another Anything Goes challenge at One Stitch at a Time. You can enter any kind of project, there are no restrictions at all. You don't even have to use a Stitchy Bear product (though of course we'd love it if you did). ;)
For my creation I've used Floppy Latte Designs' pretty Oh Dahlia digi stamp and coloured it with my Promarkers:
I decided to do something a little different for my project and created a little decorated notebook. I saw this idea demonstrated at a Stampin' Up! training day and it is so quick and easy to do and really effective. :)
I took a cheap basic notepad and scored a strip of cardstock to form the cover. I decorated it with a panel of embossed cardstock (loving this woodgrain embossing folder from Stampin' Up!) and cut around my coloured image and attached it:

I added some gemstones and some baker's twine to fasten the booklet closed and added some Glossy Accents to give some sheen to the centre of the flowers:

Isn't it cute? Here's the little notepad inside:

These really are so quick to make. I think I might make some for end of year gifts for my DD1's nursery teachers. :)
The challenge at OSAAT runs for one week. As ever, entries using a Stitchy Bear product will be eligible to win our main prize and entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will have a chance to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Di's Digi Designs - Summer Fun
Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle
Crafty Catz - Say It With Flowers
Digi Haven - Flowers
Jellypark Challenges - Celebrate Summer

Like the floral creation, paper piecing of the flower and the way it goes over the edge of the notepad.
