Masculine Monday and clearance items uses
I was using up some of my retired paper this past week and covered some mini (4.5”x3.5”) composition books that I picked up at the store in a pack of three for $1.00. Most of them turned out more for us ladies but I made sure I covered one to show here for my Masculine Monday. With the new list of clearance items I thought, “This makes a great connection.” I used some of last year’s Elegant Soiree DSP – which is no longer available - but I did see Travel Journal DSP from our summer mini in the clearance rack. That would be a wonderful choice to use to cover one of these little note books for the man in your life.
I covered them with a 6x6 sheet of DSP. That would be four books covered with one 12x12 sheet of DSP! I used coordinating card stock, in this case Baja Breeze, to cover the spine and inside covers. I added a little embellishment with a section of the large stamp from Lovely as a Tree stamped with Soft Suede and a touch of Garden Green on Very Vanilla. I placed this on top of a square of Night of Navy. All of the colors coordinate with the colors of the Designer Serious Paper I used. That is what is so great about Stampin’ Up! products, everything coordinates so easily ;)
Hope your week goes well!!
