Altered Book

I love how you can take a simple notebook and turn it into something beautiful.

I took this type of book and made this project:

I just love how this turned out.

Close up of the butterflies and button. I also stamped the A to Z stamp on the Rose Red card stock and stamped Details over top.

I stamped the pages as well using the butterfly from the stamp set Thanks for Caring

Tool Tip: After cutting an image with the big shot, alter the image by cutting part of it off. I did this with the Early Espresso Top Note by cutting 1/4" of it off and adhering it to my cover. This gives the top note a different look!!

I hope you have a great day!!
