Altered Inspirational Notebook with The Craft's Meow

Hello friends!!  Today I get to share an altered notebook on The Craft's Meow blog that would be a wonderful gift for someone in your life or something that you may want to keep to write your own thoughts down in.

I found a fat little notebook at a discount store.  I don't like the thin flimsy covers that they had on it, so I cut my own out of chipboard that measure the same sizes as the ones that I took off (this one measures 5 1/2 x 4 inches).  To remove the covers, I carefully unwound the coil on the side and then remove it.

I use a pen and the cover I just removed as a guide for where I need to punch the new holes on the notebook.  I decorate the front of the notebook cover before I punched the holes (from the ones I traced on the back of the newly decorated cover) with a Crop-A-Dile. 

I put the notebook back together and then re-coil the spiral binding.  I added some embellishments on the front like the small chalkboard panel that I created with the Chalkboard Faith stamp set and some ribbon, pins and a wooden button.

I used papers from the Jillibean Soup 6x6 Grandma's Lima Bean Soup paper pad to cover the notebook front.

Here is a look at the wonderful Chalkboard Faith stamp set:

If you like my notebook, I would really love it if you would hop on over to The Craft's Meow blog post to leave a little love there on my project.  I hope you have a blessed day!!
