Bought a very reasonably priced notebook (approx 10cmx15cm) for about $2.95 and proceeded to cover with fabric canvas, lace and a beautiful image (printed on to sticky-back white canvas). Sewed the lace to some damask cream fabric and then layered cream lace over the top. I then added the printed image. Stamped the word 'notes' to the right hand side of the image using Vintage Photo distress stain - actually like the uneven inking.
Added some beautiful dark pink and green rayon crinkly ribbon and . . . done!!
What a beautiful way to record my day to day reminders!
