TLC99 - Composition Notebook
 
Composition Notebooks is something I have meant to try for ages, and I finally had a reason to try one. My mom was going to California and Florida over the holidays for some major sightseeing. I knew it would be an adventure for her, so I created a notebook called "The Adventures of Amma" for her to record her fun times.
Amma's Notebook

Here is a fabulous tutorial created by Trish. It is a .pdf, so right click to save it to your computer and then open it. THANKS, Trish, for such a wonderful tutorial!
Trish's directions

I did mine a bit different...I didn't cover the insides of the journal like Trish does. Mostly because I was in a hurry! :rolleyes: You can read the details in the description in the gallery.

If you have been putting off trying one, don't! They are easy and really fun.
There is a special section of the gallery for Composition Notebooks...It is under "Handmade Journals/Altered Composition Notebooks" Please help us keep the the gallery neat and tidy by uploading your creation there. Thanks.

When you upload, please put TLC99 in the keyword section when you upload, and then post a link to your card here in this thread. If you are new to the challenges, or need help uploading or linking, click here.


As always, I am in search of suggestions for techniques for future TLCs! Please PM with suggestions and a link to the directions and/or a sample if you can

Jeanne S 01-15-2007 05:43 AM

Fun Beth! I have some just sitting waiting to be done :)

wiggydl 01-15-2007 05:44 AM

Vicky Gould 01-15-2007 05:49 AM

Have done these before, but always fun to come up with a new creation. Thanks, Beth!

What is SNAIL? Is that something I can buy at like a Michael's or JoAnn's?

ngowen 01-15-2007 05:54 AM

I've been meaning to do one for all the ideas I glean from magazines...finally the push to get it done! Thanks.

ngowen 01-15-2007 05:55 AM

SNAIL is Simple, Neat, Affordable, and In Line adhesive...any tombo two way tape will work.

SNAIL is the SU! brand of monoadhesive tape. You can get double sided tape in a dispenser at Michael's, Joann's, Target, Walmart, etc.

flaxychick 01-15-2007 05:57 AM

This is gonna be so much fun!! I have a huge stash of notebooks from all my trips to the $1 store and Mike's. I LOVE covering these things... And I have the whole day to play... no work!!

You can do spiral notebooks!

notimetostamp 01-15-2007 06:04 AM

Beth, your book is gorgeous, but nothing comes up when I key in TLC99 -- shouldn't your book show up there?

I could use one of these for a gift -- hope I can find time today do it!! Great challenge!!!!

DawnL 01-15-2007 06:04 AM

oh, this sounds great Beth! thanks!

AWESOME BETH!!

I am so in the mood for a non-card project!!!!!!!!!
(thanks for the reminder about where to put it in the gallery, too--I have Monday brain!!!)

bambi64 01-15-2007 06:21 AM

DD#1 just asked me to check the challenge. I think I have one laying around that she can use if she wants to do the challenge! No school so might as well stamp! ;)

Loree2000 01-15-2007 06:23 AM

I have a comp book, maybe I'll be able to squeeze one in today?!

WAXYO 01-15-2007 06:23 AM

Fun challenge! I just did my first of these a couple of weeks ago...I'll have to try another!

Lisa Loiselle 01-15-2007 06:32 AM

Here's one I made a few weeks ago - hope that's not cheating http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/begging.gif

reneejul1 01-15-2007 06:34 AM

OK - I love doing these! Thanks for the challenge, Beth!

sherristampsalot 01-15-2007 06:43 AM

Of course I have some of these laying around unused!!! Great challenge Beth!!

atomicbutterfly 01-15-2007 07:05 AM

I love this challenge! I love altering comp books! I have friend's b-day today, too that I still don't have a gift for! I will get started!!!!

Julesiana 01-15-2007 07:16 AM

Here is mine:

(BTW--the search feature in the gallery is NOT working for me)

After I get some housework done, I hope to make more!

ashleyprugh 01-15-2007 07:42 AM

I LOVE making composition books.. I haven't done a spiral one yet, though. I'll be trying that for this challenge.

lacyquilter 01-15-2007 07:44 AM

Cool challenge, Beth. Too bad - I don't have any of these. But this is really scary! I was digging around in the basement to see if I had one and I came across a box full of maternity clothes - yikes! Don't know how that one got missed. My baby is 18! Good Will here I come!

Runamok 01-15-2007 07:45 AM

I dont know what kind of notebooks I have--most are already full! I'm going to scrounge around and find SOMETHING, though, because this looks really fun!

Englishrose 01-15-2007 07:46 AM

Oh, I don't have anything that will work, and the roads are so treacherous and icy that I won't be venturing out today. I will try this later in the week, though.

flaxychick 01-15-2007 07:49 AM

Here is my first one.... then I'm off to make a second!

Grandmama BoBo 01-15-2007 07:50 AM

I did 4 of these at christmas time. Meant to take pictures, but forgot. I made them for the men. Our GSIL is a Michigan fan, so I did his in Michigan colors & Put Michigan embellishments. Our one SIL likes Batman so did his with Batman stickers. Our other SIL is a great carpenter so did his with tools. I will see if I can come up with another one today.

jojot 01-15-2007 07:51 AM

a fab challenge, Beth.....not sure when I'll get to it, but I know I will....can't wait to see everyone's creations..........

kerryp 01-15-2007 07:57 AM

Thanks for the challenge Beth! I don't have any composition notebooks, but really need to use my rubicoil more, so thanks for making me get it out!
Here's my first attempt:

denidill 01-15-2007 07:59 AM

I can probably figure out how to do this once I find a notebook! But I cannot open the tutorial file...anyone else having this problem??

bec55rose 01-15-2007 08:14 AM

I didn't have a composition book to cover, but I did have an old address book that desperately needed it! Here it is... TFL

Barbra1224 01-15-2007 08:28 AM

Thanks for the challenge, Beth. These are good to have on hand to give as simple little gifts. Mine is on the simple side (I didn't have a comp book, only a Target notebook), but I think my niece will love it...

Punny Notebook

Did you try the right click and save to your computer?

cjzim 01-15-2007 08:34 AM

This is my first time doing a comp book, too, although I've had some sitting here in my stamp room for months - thanks for this challenge on a Monday morning; it got me moving!
Here's my book
