Howdy Blog Hoppers and welcome to the June Club Scrap National Parks Blog Hop...Club Scrap Blog!
So I don't know about ya'll but here in the Northern Metro Atlanta area it's HOT! I know summers in the South are usually pretty warm but for the time of the year it's been downright HOT for the last couple weeks. Highs in the mid 90's with high humidity. My poor Mom in Phoenix is facing temps of 114 for the next few days!! So I made up a new word for this unbearable sticky hotness. For those times when your undergarments are stuck to your sweaty body and sweat is running into your eyes...that's called being "HAWT".
HAWWWWWWWWWWWWWT. You have to say it in a southern drawn out kind of whiny tone to get the full effect. So you might be wondering what this has to do with the Blog Hop today...Well my craft room is here...
(AJ helped to pick out today project.)
So today we are making a copy cat (ha I just said cat) of the Altered Composition Notebook from Retreat 2013. The full directions can be found at the Club Scrap site here along with a handy video!
I gathered my notebook, 4 pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 paper and a length of ribbon from a grab bag pack and I was ready to go.
I used a piece of the National Parks 8 1/2" by 11" for the front cover and then coordinating grab bag papers for the other three sheets (I mean of course did you expect me to use all my new papers?) All you need is a little bookbinding glue and a craft knife and you can cover your book in a jiff!
After doing this to all four sides (front and back, inside and out) I added a pocket to the inside back cover.
After just about 20 minutes and a little decorating you end up with this!! Adorableness!
(We are headed to an eco-resort on the Georgia Coast at the end of July and I plan to take it along to do a little journaling.)
So this month I'm offering a random prize to someone who replies to my blog. Club Scrap accidentally sent me someone elses GHM order in my box this month and said I could keep it so I'm going to turn around and give it to one of you lucky readers. It includes 1 Irresistible Stencil, 2 Blues Lite Suede Papers, 1 Blues Treble Clef Pins, 1 Double Sided Stamp Scrubber, and 1 pack of ink applicators. Pretty nifty huh? I'll have the cats draw a random number to pick a winner. All replies entered before Sunday June 28th at 8pm will be entered to win.
Finally here is a little farewell from MaryAnne who lays in this position because she's HAAAWWWT! (She's cooling her lady parts)
Stay cool my crafty friends and hop across the pond to Hetty's Blog!
