JustRite: Grand Damask Notebook

Today I am sharing my project using JustRite® Papercraft March 2013 Release Graceful Monogram and Grand Damask Background Stamp sets to create an elegant notebook. What a great gift for someone who to planning a wedding or even make it into a scrapbook :)

3月の新しいスタンプセット(Graceful Monogram and Grand Damask Background Stamp Sets)の紹介です。スタンプを使って ノートブックを(又はミニアルバムにも) 作りました。 Spellbinders Media Mixage Line (Mixed Media向けの商品) Bezelもつけて、エレガントな感じかな~。

For the notebook cover, I heat embossed the Grand Damask Background Stamp with pink embossing powder. Loved how the pink just pops against that black cardstock :)

Next I played with Spellbinders™ newest collection, the Media Mixáge™ Line. Did you know Graceful Monogram stamp set fits into some of their bezels?! I am using MB2-007 Circles One bezel #2 (the smallest size is #1) to frame the cameo image. I cut/embossed with its matching die templates, MD1-007 Circles One die #3 over the stamped image. Then added glitter to the stamped cameo. To frame the bezel cup, I stamped the floral frame image and fussy cut to fit. See below...

Since I wasn't planning on using a jeweler's resin or sealer, I needed to "lift" the cameo image with 3D Foam Squares to give it the desired depth in my embellishment. Next I added gems and pearls as accents, using my Embellie Gellie tool to pick up all those gems!

Next I cut two pieces of chipboard for notebook covers, painted the edges in black and covered all with patterned papers. I threaded a ¾" black organza ribbon through the bezel loops. I secured the ribbon onto the back of the bezels with Dodz™ (glue rounds) and then use more Dodz to secure the bezel onto the Grand Damask cover.

Here is a close up of the embellished bezel...

This is how I will have my pages set up. I used my Bind-It-All to punch holes and bind the notebook together.

I used the "M" and flourish frame images to create a charm with Shrink Plastic and cut with S4-110 Classic Ovals LG die #4. Don't forget to punch that hole on top :)

Add the charm and trinket pins with the bow on the binding wire - it's ready to give away...not sure I want to give THIS one away! LOL!! Here's another look...
