Forever Young: A Shabby Chic Notebook Gift

Looking for fun Christmas gifts to make?  Here’s one where your time and love show through, even though the cost is easily affordable.  Step 1: Pick up a composition book on clearance at a big-box store (mine was $0.10).  Step 2: Decorate with the Forever Young stamp set (see it online) and items from the Timeless Portrait Product Suite (pages 78-79 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog  — click here to download or click here to browse the suite online).

forever-young-notebook-backI love the products in this Suite, and I love how easy Stampin’ Up! makes it to pick coordinating items for a fabulous end product.  Here are the ones I used here:

  • Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric
  • Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper
  • Forever Young stamp set
  • Antique Brads
  • Vintage Trinkets
  • Victoria Crochet Trim
  • Champagne Glass Stampin’ Glitter

I have to say that until I sat down and played with them, I didn’t know how much I loved this color scheme!  The colors here are River Rock, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black.  LOVE it!

Or are you a Digital papercrafter?  This is a great project to create digitally — the products in the Timeless Portrait Suite are also available as Digital Downloads for My Digital Studio.  And to make it even easier, you can order them all together as part of the Avant Garde Collection DVD (see it online).

So grab a few notebooks and start creating — this project is a fun vintage-y, collage mix of fabric, paper and trinkets.

Happy Stamping!
