Katzelkraft - Notebook












Hi everyone! A notebook that I've made to show today for Katzelkraft using stamps KTZ91, KTZ93, KTZ 94 and KTZ96 and which I'm entering into the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge which has a theme of distressed/torn edges this week, hopefully distress means sanding and sponging the edges which I've done on the covers using walnut stain distress ink.

The notebook covers  are chipboard covered with card that I stamped on. The front cover image was coloured with copics and pencils and the title is handwritten. The card for the inside and back covers was inked with distress ink, sprayed with perfect pearls and water, sanded and then  sponged around the edges, then glued to the covers. I've painted the covers with a layer of gloss medium to protect them as I'll be keeping the notebook in my handbag. The book was put together with some printer paper cut to size using my binding machine.

Katzelkraft stamps are available exclusively in the UK at the Craft Barn and from Katzelkraft Stamps in France.

Enjoy your day!
