JAI #167: Just Add Fabric!


I'm certainly back into this swing of things with my blogging this week, and how about we round off the week with another Just Add Ink challenge? Perfect!

This week I chose the theme and it's fabric!  Yes, we want you to add some fabric to your projects.  Please note that it must be fabric and not ribbon.  I used the Summer Smooches Fabric on my project.

This piece of fabric is such a cheerful, happy print and I have been hoarding it saving it for a special project. I decided it was time to cut into it.

You can see here I used a narrow strip of the coordinating fabric to make a ruffle for the front.  I also used some of the Canvas Creations sheet to make a label for the front. I love the textured look it gives to the stamped sentiment.

Did you notice that my project wasn't actually a card? It's a little notebook, and it's been something that I've been wanting to try for a couple of months now.  You see, I made the WHOLE thing from scratch!  I cut the papers, bound them using needle and thread and then created the cover to go around them.  I thoroughly enjoyed making it, and I can see myself making lots more in the future.

One final photo of the inside of the note book.  I used some of the matching Summer Smooches DSP for my end pages.  The actual pages are from my stash and are plain white for ease of writing on.
