Summer altered mini composition book


I watched a tutorial on youtube, she altered a mini composition notebook, I added tabs, tags, and a center 
pocket like she did. It is really cool what she did but its a half hour long, I suggest fast forwarding through some of her thought processes lol. But its a great notebook, I love how it turned out. I cut tabs with a punch then labeled them, friends, laugh, love, cherish, beautiful and imagine. I put tabs about every 20 pages or so. Then I made a pocket for the front and back and made tags to put in them. The center part has a pocket page that has a place for photos or whatever. This is a gift for my niece Sophie who turns 14 tomorrow.

I myself have taken on books as you have done. I love doing that. I am now finishing my third Grandsons book in altering a whole book .One I had on the bookcase. Actually it was a manuel book. Was a big task.Had to really do boysish things and find like tons of ideas to fill it. I need an hours explanation to tell what I got myself into.. I am now finished. Problem with me. I never make anything small. It becomes big, big and so many pages.From 90 pages on book to now a drop to 85pages this book.I followed her instructions but it cause me many more glue pages to gether for starters. I guess that is why I have my title in my blog site.Imagination. I am like the energy bunny. I keep going and going. Like you. I so enjoyed what you posted. Awesome. Anyhow. My Gradkids loved their gifts and my friends. Now I have to spend time for me to make books. Thumbs up crafter, scrapbooker, dream book. Meaning YOU.
You have all the titles and more. Tee,heee.

Have a good day! I enjoy your artsy things. I have you on my list of followers.
