Weekend Wrap Up Party - Notebook Edition

Join us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up party!

I stumbled across the party link while I was browsing for theme days for blogging. Since posts on Thursdays and Fridays may be sparse as I'm working at my non mommy job I figured this would be an awesome way to cap off my week!

This, is my blogging notebook.  I don't have a before picture unfortunately.  I just got tired of the slippery normal cover it came in and decided to make it over!

An up close shot of the brad I used for the front.  Sorry for the blurriness!

This is what the front and the back look like. The insides of the covers are covered in the alternate paper.  The covers are nice and solid being sandwiched in between scrapbook paper and card stock!

Even though you can't see it very well, the book is bound together with fishing line. Heavy duty fishing line!  The loop at the back is a piece of jewellery elastic cut into three equal pieces braided together.

Sorry for the not-so-great quality of the photos! I'm trying to decide which flash I like to use inside my apartment.  Also, taking photos of things on the living room carpet? Probably not the best idea!


  1. Very cute! I love the paper you used.

  2. This is really cute!! Love the paper on the cover. :)


  3. fun pattern. Is this what you jot down blogging post ideas in or do you use it to keep notes on blogs you've been to?

  4. I use it for both jotting down ideas AND keeping notes on blogs I've been to. Especially if it's a crafty blog and I enjoyed a tutorial.
