Whimsy is Essential!

Hi Everyone!
If you've noticed on my last couple posts- I have not made any cards since Sunday!
I'm trying something new- and having fun doing it!!
Today I altered a notebook.

It started out like this:

And ended up like this:

I used the DCWV Lemon Flower stack for all the paper (I love this stack!).
I was not really a fan of Yellow until I bought this stack, and actually bought it for all the Black and Silver- now, I can't seem to get enough Yellow- go figure!

I stamped the owl image and cut it out with a 1" Marvy punch.  I adhered it with some Glossy Accents and flooded the image to make it pop.  If you saw my last post- it's the exact same thing, except I didn't put it in a bottle cap!
The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs "Positive Thoughts" stamp set.
I love this set!!  After having all 6 sets of Kristal's stamps- I've got to say- that this is by far my favorite!  I haven't seen these phrases anywhere else before- and they are perfect!  Buy them HERE!
$1.00 from each set of these stamps goes to Storefront Shelter (Homeless shelter for children and youth).

Thanks for stopping by!

Made it Myself- Bottlecap Magnets

Hi Everyone!
My new favorite thing to make is bottlecap necklaces and magnets.  These are fun because they are incredibly easy to do and my daughters love to make them too!
These are stamped images that we colored in with Gelly Roll gel pens.  Each image was cut out with a 1" Marvy Punch and adhered to the bottle cap with Glossy Accents.  We added a little bling to each one and flooded it with Glossy Accents.  Allow them to dry overnight and then add a magnet to the back or a chain through the hole.  So cute and so fun to make!!

I'm linking this up to You Had Me at Craft's Made it Myself Monday link up.
 Go make something and link it up too!
