This months sampler theme was ‘Masculine’. My class tied in with Father’s Day, however this design is suitable for any male figure – brother, uncle, friend, etc.
We got extra creative and made the mini notebook from printer paper I had previously died with tea. Each page was stamped using images from the Beautiful World stamp set in coordinating ink colours. We then attached the pages to the cover by stitching them with some twine. The cover was embossed using the Subtles 3D embossing folder, and then aged using a sponge dauber and Soft Suede ink. It is then held closed with a length of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and a slide from the Antiqued Corner and Slides pack. To finish off the mini notebook, we adhered die cut elements and covered the spine and two front corners with Early Espresso cardstock.
The sentiment is heat embossed in white onto a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock. We stamped the quill onto a lighter sheet of patterned paper from the World of Good Designer Series Paper pack, and finished off the panel with a corner from the Antiqued Corner and Slides pack.
The globe was die cut using Brass Foil, Misty Moonlight cardstock, and Soft Suede cardstock for the stand. Again, the panel was finished off with a corner from the Antiqued Corner and Slides pack.
The best aspect of this sampler page was that the mini notebook could come off of the page! It was adhered with magnets which meant it could come off to have a photos glued in, or to have some memories jotted in – whatever the owner wanted to do with it really.
Happy crafting x
