Don't Worry, Be Happy!






Hello everyone! Today I am showing a project that I did for a cross promotion between Peachy Keen Stamps and Freckled Fawn
Freckled Fawn is a Shop where you can get some really cool embellishments like washi tape, wood chips, and shaped paper clips, among other things. These are the 3 things that I used to dress up my project!

For my project I did this cute little notebook. I started with a $1 notebook from Michaels and used that as my pattern. I also used the pen and notebook from the set. 
I started by removing the cover from the original notebook and marked out what size I needed to cut my cover and where the score and cut lines were. 
After the cover was made, I stamped and paper pieced the girl from Peachy Keen's Darren and Laura Lee stamp set. I also used the sentiments from this stamp set to create the banner tag. 
I used my heart washi tape on the side of the notebook and I cut out one of the hearts and added it to the pen. I used the heart paper clip to attach the sentiment banner and stamped the rest of the sentiment at the bottom. To finish I added a wooden arrow pointing at the sentiment that I colored with a copic marker. 

I hope you all liked my project and check back at The Peachy Keen  Blog all this week for more fun projects with Freckled Fawn and Peachy Keen Stamps!
