I'm a schmuck

Did you guys know that? I didn't until yesterday. Apparently I was....well, we won't get into that.

Supplies:(Stampin' Up! Unless otherwise noted) Enchante Double Sided Designer Paper, Pale Plum CS, Perfect Plum ink, Versamark, UTEE, and a buncha ribbon that I got from TexasJodyLynn's ribbon share ( I dunno the names of all the colors....).

So I made this for my coworker because I am a schmuck. I took the little $1 notebook apart (just pried the binding apart and yoinked all the suff out), then covered in the Enchante paper and used my Crop A Dial to punch the holes. I lined the covers with Sage Shadow cardstock...and used Mod Podge to adhere it all. So once it was dry I put the whole thing back together and used the Cricut to cut out the initial in Pale Plum.

When I laid the initial on the book, it looked boring. So I sponged the edges with Perfect Plum ink....and it still looked boring. I smooshed the letter in Versamark ink and then covered in UTEE and heated. Smooshed in Versamark again and dumped more UTEE and heated. Did that three times till it was smooth and glassy. IRL....it's really shiney and pretty.

Once I got the ribbons tied on, I realised it wasn't enough, so I made a little micro beaded pen to match. No stamping on either of these projects folks....I just realised that.

Oh....but I did show my friend how unmounted stamps worked last night. She had NO idea. And she was impressed.
