Altered Notebooks

So my newest interest is altering items. I had seen numerous altered notebooks, tins, etc. I wanted to try and see what I could create. And wah laa...

This was my first notebook I did. It was made for my good friend Louise for an Xmas present. It took me quite awhile to get it done but I was very happy with the results. Let me see if I can list some of the items used. I'm not very good at keeping track of these things.

Cat stamps are from Hanko Designs
"Louise" was stamped from CTMH Homestead Alphabet
Ink is CTMH star spangled blue
Liquid Glass was put over all the letters but the "O". I put a window circle from CTMH over it.

I was so thrilled over this that I made a 2nd one for another friend.

I had a difficult time in finding a way to get her name to fit on the notebook. I finally ended up cutting letters out from a Sizzix alphabet. She loves dogs so this was her theme. Stamps are from CTMH Uptown Girls. All other items are from places I can't remember where I got it from.
I plan to do more of these this year. Will probably be trying different type of altering of notebooks journals through out the year.
