One a Bella Two a Bella Three a Bella and I'm done!


Last night my friend Kim (www.sewstampscrapbook.blogspot.com) came over the hang out and make cards. I wanted to make her a little gift before she came over so I used some paper I bought from Hobby Lobby that morning and went to work. I made one for me first so I could see if I liked the color combo's together before creating hers. By the time I was done with mine she had gotten here. I hid mine and asked my wonderful husband if he could go get me some more of the paper b/c I only bought one sheet of it and it was only enough to cover one book. I wanted to replicate my sample for her with the same paper. When she got here I showed her the book and she loved it! So I went to work coloring her Bella for the front with blond hair. Every time I attempted to finish I would color something the wrong color and have to start over. After three Bella's with paper pieced dresses I was done.


I love the way this notebook turned out. I used the notebook from Target (6x6) and then covered it with some paper from Hobby Lobby. I used the regal rose ribbon from Stampin up and then the Bella (www.stampingbella.com). I paper pieced her dress using the paper from last years spring mini and then made some dividers with my punch. I stamped the top of the tabs with my fancy flexible set. There are some flourishes on the sides of a couple of the words so I just used those. Hope you like it! I have got to find some more of those books...


I am going to breakfast and then on the hunt for a few things. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
