Hello, friends.  Today I've made something completely different.  I was inspired by the "12 Days of Christmas" challenges going on at Mark's Finest Papers and have made a covered composition journal.  You can find a tutorial here.   Hoping to give this as a Christmas gift - what do you think?

  • Ink:  Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise, Versafine Onyx Black
  • Patterned paper:  Recess of Carson Dellosa, Stampin' Up

What an extreme transformation! I am stunned at how you turned such a boring notebook into something so whimsical and lovely! I really liked your take on the 12 Days theme, too, and all of the visual references you included made me smile. Well done and I'm so glad you shared your skills with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
