The Best Things In Life Notebook


I just love the dreamy pale colors on this notebook. I wanted to create an extra sturdy notebook with lot’s of lined pages and an extra special cover.

This lovely hydrangea image comes from Graphic’s Fairy and was the inspiration for my creamy color scheme. The cover is hard book board. It would be a snap to put in a new set of pages when you need more room to write : )

I layered quite a few patterns here from Pink Pailsee and embellished with  chipboard elements that I covered in my new favorite Picket Fence Distress Stain. To the bits on the top I also did a bit of stamping with chocolate brown. I choose to anchor the light colors be inking the edges in Walnut ink.

There’s a few pieces here from S.E.I. I finished it off with a simple length of lace and a few vintage buttons.

I wrapped the paper around so there’s no unfinished edges.  A sweet little bird for the inside cover.

I love lined pages!

Pretty French paper from Pink Pasilee’s London Market line for the back cover : )

I’ve added this notebook to my Etsy Shop. Click on the link to check out the details.

  1. Hi there!! My nice and relaxing week didn’t turn out so relaxing 😦 The hubby is struggling with his injuries, we got back from another specialist today who put him on more meds and complete rest, said he’s overdoing it and needs to stop smoking! (That part is good cuz now he’s gonna try and cut back!) I have not forgotten to stop in, just never seems to be a good time where I don’t have 1000 things to do and work on top of that. Hate it! We have a community rummage sale tomorrow and Sunday that we’re hauling EVERYTHING outside for LOL, and I have to work 3-11p, but I will try to slip away!! This book is so beautifully shabby chic, just gorgeous!!! Can’t wait to see it in person!

  2. This is a fantastic notebook! I love the cream color scheme, and the little bits of lace, buttons, flowers, birds, etc. It all works so well together! and I love how you distressed all the edges with the walnut stain. It really does anchor the pieces. What a fabulous job! and I love how you have both lines and plain paper. LOVE IT!
