My Creative Time: Made In Minutes

Hi, it's Made in Minutes over on the My Creative Time blog.
So for today, I have revamped a little notebook.

I got this little memo book from Wal-mart for .27 cents in the school supplies area. I thought it would make a great project for made in minutes that could be easily recreated. Plus, who doesn't like a project that is cheap and uses those scraps that just lay around the scrap room?

So I first want to show you in pictures what I did.

I first started out by cutting the red rectangle from MCT: Love To Learn Dies + Stamps Set. I then matted it with black card stock. 

Next, I cut out the "you" and "are" from MCT:  Speech Bubble Sentiments Stamp Set. Then below it I stamp on the sentiment "Write On!" from MCT: Write On Stamp Set.

I then added a MCT: Stitched Tab to the top that I shortened up a bit to make it fit better.

I also used the MCT: Love to Learn Dies + Stamps to create the pencil. I added the cute Peachy Keen Bombshell Face, chalked the cheeks, and added white gel pen accents. I used MCT: You are Fabulous Stamp set for the pencil line. 

To finish the project, I added a small little star from MCT: 3 Star Stitched Dies.

Well that's my project!! Thank you so much for stopping by!! Please head on over to the My Creative Time Blog to see the rest of the design team's amazing creations!!
