Thumbs up WT46 Noteable Creations - Play along!

This week's challenge is a little different. Usually I try to pick SU products out of the catalogue to find "ways to use". This week the challenge is to find ways to use and alter or personalize purchased journals, notepads, composition books. If you don't have any sitting around, check out the dollar store or Michael's, My 6x6 square journal is from Michael's and cost $1.50 CDN. I did find it a little tricky doing this project as I've never done anything like this before so let's all share our tips adn instructions to help each other out. I LOVED the great thread we had going last week. Thanks so much everyone for all your participation.

Sorry this post is a little later than usual. It is DD's 13th birthday today and was a little bit busier this morning. She wanted her presents before school today...imagine that!

Here is the link to the prayer journal I made yesterday for this challenge...

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=9338

Please remember to put WT46 in your keywords section and post a link back here...I can't wait to see what you come up with! Good thing VSN is next weekend as this challenge will take a little longer than usual...next week I'll pick something a little simpler.

Happy stamping,

Hi Julia,
I just checked out your link and it is so BEAUTIFUL!!! One question: How do you put the designer paper on the cover so nicely especially with the coils. I have taken off the coils on a booklet and had the darnest time putting them back on nicely. I think I used the ribbon to cover up where they were all bent out of shape! Any hints???

Here's a link to my first one I ever did (I cheated on this challenge because I already did this one about 3 months ago)

No, unfortunately I don't have any hints which is partly why I'm posting the challenge. I cheated and just put the paper up to where the brown ribbon covers the edge and made sure to buy a journal that had a very neutral left side that I could coordinate the rest of the design with. If anyone has taken the coil off....PLEASE! we want to hear from you.

Thanks,

I really struggle with journals too because they are so BIG compared to a card. I will be watching the talent

This is perfect! I have been keeping a pregnancy/baby journal in a composition notebook that I keep meaning to cover. I will have to get working on this when I get home from the store!

My current prayer journal has a plastic soft-bound cover. Anyone have suggestions for covering that? Behind the cover (it's like the cloudy clear look) is pressed flower paper.

I need to play in this one. If you don't want to do a big one, Walmart sells these little bitty ones (about 3" or 4" square) for $.94 each. (They are usually in the craft section on the end of a shelving unit.) Beate has a bunch of them in her gallery... (thanks, Beate) here's one:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=176427&cat=500&ppuser=458

I picked up a bunch of these, but haven't done even one. I guess I'm just a little intimidated by those coils & how to work around them. Looks like Beate just stamps up to the coils & then adds lots of ribbons.

They are really simple! I have been making them for a few weeks now for my hostesses. I also made one for my Mom's Group Leader at church. She put all the mom's names and phone numbers in her book (because they are so small, you can easily put them in a purse)....when we had a snowstorm, she was easily able to call everyone and reschedule the event.

These are my 3x3 books

BUMMER! I live in Germany, and they don't have Wal-marts or Targets or Michaels, so I asked my friend in the states to send some little journals to me...she did, but they got lost in the mail. Salt in my wound

Have fun ladies Can't wait to move back to the states!

I have this on my list to do this week too! I found some great address books on clearance for $0.25 at W-mart earlier this week. I do have 3 of the mini-notebooks in my gallery. I hope to have time to post my address books later.

Beate's cute little Wal-mart scrapbook/notebooks are fab. Does anyone know if Wal-mart sells them in Canada too?

Default Coils are EASY!

easy peasy girls! cut your covers the size of your notebook, tear out a page of the paper and mark the holes or use it as a guide and punch each one....then snip the edge to the hole and fit your piece on pushing the little slits into place between each coil! voila!!!
here's one I did back in October http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=19913

Pending approval. Here is one that my 11 year old DD did recently all by herself. I will work on one later. Thanks for this great challenge.

I have never been able to find those notebooks at my Walmart - I think Beate cleaned out all the Walmarts in Texas

I just made one, but I can't post it...it is for my SS.

I opened it up and lined up the ends as best I could, around the coil, over the paper I was going to use to cover it....then used a pencil and marked each of the holes. Then I used my 1/8" punch to make the holes and used my craft knife to cut a slit to the outside of each one, then I slipped them onto the coil and used a touch of glue to keep the tabs stuck down...Clear as Mud??

Here is one I made awhile ago, it has a different coil that you can just open and not the long one piece coil.

Great designs everyone! I'll have to make individual posts later. We are on our way out for the day.

Here's my small notebooks that I did earlier this week for DD's preschool teachers. Planning more similar ones to follow.

Question Question about the spirals

I love doing these books, but.... a few years ago my husband made one for me that we've filled with cards and memorabilia of our life together. The problem is that the stuff we've put inside is filling the book so that the book won't close properly and about half the pages haven't been used!

Is there anyway I can remove spirals and put on new ones that are bigger so I can continue to use the book?!?

This was the perfect challenge for me! I bought 2 composition notebooks at Target on clearance after school started but I hadn't done anything to decorate them yet. I decided to do my sons first and I really like how it turned out. It's sweet, but not frilly. I think he will like it when he get older.

Here it is (pending as of 11:50am CT):

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...14562&cat=5640

Great challenge Julia! I loved it!!

Wow, you have no idea how perfect this challenge is for me today! My daughter's school is having a basket raffle, and her 3rd grade class chose the theme "Smithie (our mascot) Pride" for their basket. Yesterday, the room mother sent home a paper saying nothing had yet been donated for the basket! Well, I've had these Michigan State papers, that also work for us here in our school district, and was intending to make some stuff for the basket but never got around to it. Luckily I'm at home today, and when I saw this challenge, I immediately ran and got the little notebook that I hadn't used yet, and made this up. Now I just need a few more ideas! Here's my notepad...

GO SMITHIES!

I've done the kind where you remove the coil totally and the kind where you can just bend each coil up and remove the cover. Both are really easy to do. After I remove the coil, I line up the cover with whatever I want to put on top and use my anywhere punch and punch the holes.

To remove the one-piece spirals, just unhook the top and bottom so the wire is straight, then just twist until it's all removed. I use a binder clip to keep the paper together so it doesn't fall everywhere when I'm removing the coil. Then when you're done, just line up the cover with the paper and twist the other way to put the spiral back in.

HTH,

As usual, I'm at work right now, but here is one from my gallery that I did last year (I think):

It was a book from the Dollar Tree... this is good inspiration because the "box of stuff to stamp on" is getting very very full! Thanks! We'll see what I can do this weekend!

Here are the prayer journals already in my gallery given as gifts to the gals in my prayer group

I never got mine made because I ran out of the designer paper I was using. I just bought some patterned CS last week that I want to use, so hopefully now I can get mine made. Thanks for the push Julia.

OK, that is the ONLY downside to DSS! Otherwise, I love being in the DSS!!! I have such a fear that mine is going to figure out who I am way too easily - guess it makes you stretch and work outside your box!

I haven't done this yet. This would make a good graduation gift. Better get practicing.

Is there anyway I can remove spirals and put on new ones that are bigger so I can continue to use the book?!?
You can probably take it to a Kinko's or Staples or Office Max and have them re-bind it for you.

Here are mine, I did 3 target notebooks. If I have tiem I will do a covered composition notebook too. The scrapping kits make quick work of it!!
