Happy 4th of July! Sorry I don't have a patriotic post ready for you! But at least the pic is taken outside, right!? It's a LITTLE festive, right!? Okay, maybe not... This is my sketchbook that I altered with some Prima paper and my Lizzie Anne sets, Far East and Chloe alphabet. I used the scratching technique that I described in this post on this project, as well. I actually used it here first. I wanted the main image to look older, like the paper, so I removed little lines of ink with the tips of my scissors before stamping to the paper. I think my favorite part, though, is the lantern hanging from the top of the "h". :)

Lots to do today, so I'm off and running! Catch ya later!



  1. That is supah cute! I've had a comp notebook that I wanted to alter and give to my daughter for her summer journal (yeah, summer started a month ago!) I just can't seem to get a jump start on it. I think this is an inspiration! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. How pretty is this?! I love altering notebooks. Unfortunately I have about 20 of them now so I either have to start giving them away (nooo! i neeeeeeed them!) or just not altering more for the next 20 years until I use these up. LOL

  3. Your sketch book is beautiful, Kirsten!!

  4. Love this! I so need to make myself one of these...! You are inspiring me to actually do it!

  5. (or I should see if Jennifer Love will give me one... LOL!)

  6. Great notebook! I love that little lantern too...what a great addition!!


So what do you think?
