New Mom Altered Notebook Tutorial with Mom To Be Collection

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Papericious post.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom's Designs and today I am going to share my " Coming Soon" altered notebook.

So here is this very small altered notebook and inside there pages for most of the pregnancy memories to add/ things to do/ etc.

First let me show you a few close- ups and then I will share a full (very long) tutorial.
This is how it looks from the front.

 An now to the tutorial.
This is an original  small notebook with tabs that I altered.

1. Cover the notebook with one of your favorite cardstocks from Mom to Be collection. Hand cut the  label and glue it over the cover. (Actually it's not to be much seen after all).

2. If you have banner dies- die cut the banner pieces with the largest and the second large banner dies.
If you don't own  any similar dies you can hand cut the banner shapes  that fit the notebook size.

3. Cut the weekly labels into strips. My notebook is a way too short for the full  length of the strips, so I shortened them and made some alterations with a few of them.

4.Add some Glossy Accents or another glaze medium over Papericious flower and add blue glitter over it.
This is an embossing glitter here, but I was afraid to destroy my last fabric flower while heating it with a heat gun, so I just used it as a simple glitter and let it dry.

5. Use clear embossing ink and the same blue embossing glitter and cover you chipboard pieces for the notebook cover.This time all chipboards are heat embossed.

6. Cut the cardstock banner and ink it with the ink in similar blue color. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

7.Now begin to arrange all pages, starting with the first one.
Glue your banners, add some hand cut labels and add a weekly strip on the right side of the notebook.
Leave one or two blank pages after each weeks for notes or photos or any other memorable things to add later.

8. Continue with later weeks in the similar , flat and easy way. Add some heat embossed chipboard over some pages as shown.

9. Add some circle pieces over other pages; use dies, punches or just hand cut the cardstock images.

Here you can see the week 24 strip that was altered as it was too long for the notebook size.

Add some cardstock die cuts for the interest, but remember that it should be totally flat after all if you want to close it later.

 10. Embellish the cover with a couple of die cut banners. Ink all edges with the same blue ink we used for the title.

11. Arrange the embellishments and the title over the cover as shown.Glue the lace that was cut into two parts from the both cover sides for the closure.
Add the blue jute cord for the interest.

 Enjoy your small altered project!
You can give is as a very personal present if you add the Mom's name on the cover.
