Daily Special - Anything But Cards - Altered Notebook Tutorial

Today's Daily Special is "Anything But Cards". I chose to do a tutorial on altering a notebook. It's fun and easy to create. It's a great way to personalize your notebook. . .to make it your own. I love altering notebooks and whatever lies around the house. Altering a notebook is a no-brainer and who doesn't love notebooks especially when it's personalized. There's nothing sold onretail that matches your own unique creation!

Click Here for the tutorial or click on the title of my post!

Is my tutorials helpful? Are they easy to follow? Just wondering. . .I rarely receive any comments on them so I'm not sure if they are helpful to anyone. I'm not fishing for comments. . .I'm just wondering if I'm doing tutorials on projects that are interesting to others. There's one thing that I find them fun to make, it's another thing if others do. . .I know how to create them so these tutorials are purely for my readers!
Let me know what you think and what other tutorials that you would like for me to concentrate my efforts on. . .
Until later. . .

I love your tutorials and admire the wonderful and beautiful work that you do. Your blog has inspired me to love rubber stamping more that I did before. There are a lot of techniques that I've still to try,however, you make it so easy to understand. I consider you my "stamping mentor" and look foward to learning more. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the world! Just know that your time and effort are very much appreciated.
PS: Just for the record, I wanted to add that I've been Scrapbooking for several years. Rubber Stamping is my new passion and addiction!

I just wanted you to know how much I do appreciate your taking the time and effort to do up all these awesome tutorials for these projects. Your blog and tutorials are a real source of inspirations for those of us who are new stampers as well as those who have stamped for years. Being fairly new to the stamping craze (LOL) I really do appreciate your efforts to make these tutorials easy to understand. You definately make me want to go out and buy new things. Now I so need that flower punch you used in this tutorial. But then I NEED it to do the altered notebook. LOL Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring.

I have a "ME" day today (husband and son gone to a car show) and I was looking for a special project to work on today. Your altered notebook is just the project, Maria! Thanks for the tutorial and the inspiration.

Thanks for your really good photos and instructions. I love your notebooks! I was looking for ways to use my beautiful papers, other than scrapbooking. I would love to know what glue do you use for attaching the ribbon and if you use glue in your ribbon bows to prevent them from falling. Love your tutorial. Thanks, Jannette
