Altered Composition Notebook Using Lindy Stamp Gang and Tattered Angels

So my little cousin called me to see if I could alter a composition notebook for her friend.  I never altered a notebook before so I was excited to try it.  I checked out a few videos on You Tube...didn't look too difficult so I figured I would have it done in a matter of minutes.  Well it took me a little longer than 45 minutes but it was relatively simple.  I wanted to share so enjoy.  I think I will be making more of these.

Paper came from Die Cuts With A View Mango Frost (probably my favorite collection).  My cousin wanted her friends' name on the notebook so it was cut out using my cricut cartridge "Tie The Knot" and welded together using my Gypsy.  The spine and name was cream color paper before and sprayed with Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Spray Poinsettia Red Gold.  The ribbon between the paper and spine was an iridescent white before and sprayed with Tattered Angels Tuscan Sun glimmer mist.  I had seen the flower done on You Tube and I'm hooked on making them, they are just too cute.  The boarder on the flower was a boarder punch from EK and sprayed with Tattered Angels Gumdrop glimmer mist and the circle was sprayed with Tuscan Sun.

I'm so loving the Lindy Stamp Gang order that came in yesterday that I wanted to post their information.  I ordered on a Sunday and it came in yesterday (Friday) and that's with no mail on Thursday because of the holiday.  The website is http://www.lindystampgang.com/ and I highly recommend checking them out.
