TGF Altered Notebook Contest

Well I'm back and have been a busy bee !!

I decided to enter The Greeting's Farm Altered
Notebook Contest.

As I took so many photo's and I didn't want this post to be too photo heavy I've created a little slide show.

So let's start at the beginning ! :

  • I started off with a plain Kraft Book from Paperchase
  • I used Crate Paper School Spirit to decorate the front cover. Covered Chipboard letter from my stash and tied various ribbons to the wire binding
  • The Grade Card of the front cover is magnetized so that the student can change the Wild Sprout to suit their personality (see Paul & Nahla Pic)
  • I have altered the first part of the book, creating four tabbed pages for lessons, each page has a Sprout on it that has been stamped with Black Memento Ink and coloured using Promarkers of paper pierced (see Jeremy, Miko, Odette and Flirty Edward)
  • The following pages were left untouched with just an outline stamp of each Sprout
  • On the back page I added a Crate Paper School Spirit sticker to cover the Paperchase Logo
I really enjoyed making this, it would be great if I won as it's a fantastic prize but on the other hand I don't want to part with it!!

Thanks for looking!

Hope to be back soon

Wonderful job on your altered notebook! Love all the ribbons and the sprouts are so cute. Love the idea that you can change out the one on the cover!
