Welcome to the July 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month, the challenge was to use office supplies in your project--things like paper clips, binder clips, rubber bands, file folders, staples, binder rings, adhesive labels, post-it notes, and so on--you get the idea. I have to admit, this challenge was exactly that--a challenge! It was fun to see what office supplies were hidden in various places in the house, but a little harder to figure out how to use them! So here is what I came up with:
I revisited several of the design team members' blogs from when they introduced "Take Note," and found that Lauren Meader had created a really cute notebook, and provided dimensions. So I used her template to come up with this little notebook.
|Opening the notebook|
|Back of notebook|
These pictures show some other views of the notebook, specifically the view from the back, and the view as you open up the first flap of the notebook.
Betsy Veldman made this notebook and had such cute stamping inside I decided to try it!
