Just a litte notebook - Whimsy Stamps

Do you remember when Stampin Ups spiral punch was new in the catalog? Like most punches I just had to have it. I bought a couple of hard cover journal books at Hobby Lobby and decided to alter them for my girls. Here's Alyssa's (I still need to die cut her name on the front). I measured the journal and cut two sheets of paper (Bermuda Bay cardstock and a pre-made 8 X 8 scrapbook page) slightly larger in height. That way I could line up the spiral part and trim to make it fit. I used my spiral punch and punched along the side so I could slip it in the front of the journal. I decorated the first layer with my new Whimsy Stamp -Summer Day Emma and a Big Shot flower. Of course adding ribbon is a plus. The great thing is that it can be easily removed from this book to another.
