Top Dog Die – DIY Notebook

Hello everyone!!!  It’s Top Dog Dies Wednesday!!

Today I’m working with the Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals #3 Die Set!! I love this set!  You can use it on just about anything you create.  This die set is my go to set for dies!

Take a look at my project:Notebook 3 (TDD)

I created this notebook for my daughters teacher!!  My daughter and I are having a rough time this year because of the common core.  The way they teach math is unbelievable hard.  It makes no sense to me and teaching my daughter the way I learned it may not going to help her on test day.  So its been a struggle for both of us.

I talk to her teacher almost everyday so that I can stay on top of what she is learning and I wonder if she is tired of me, LOL!

I decided to create this notebook to show her that I truly appreciate her time, patience and her helpfulness as it pertains to my daughter.  I’ve said it before teachers really need all of our support because they have a tough job.

Creating this notebook was super easy!  I used my We R Memory Keepers Cinch and We R Memory Keepers Journal Kit!!

Notebook 5 (TDD)

Notebook 6 (TDD)

I decided that I loved how the chipboard looked just as it was.  I simply stamped my sentiment from Stampin’ Up! For Being You Stamp set (it was a sale-a-bration item) with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

Then I used my Faber-Castell Polychromous Colored Pencils #140 and #125 to color my image in. The coloring is so beautiful to me.

Then I die cut my petals attached them to the front of the book, drew in a stem that attached to the sentiment.

Notebook 2 (TDD)

I added wink of stella to the letter and rhinestones to the petals.  I added the tabs to the pages to finish it off.

I love how this notebook turned out.

Notebook 4 (TDD)

What do you think?  Will my daughter’s teacher love this book?

I’m also entering this project into Jennifer McGuire Share Handmade Kindness Challenge.  We are on Week 2: Community

  1. Fabulous notebook! Who wouldn’t love it 😉 My heart goes out to you…we homeschool, but I have read about the tremendous frustration parents/children are facing and I even spoke to a teacher with a math degree that was having trouble understanding the CC learning concept. You are a great mom to have such a loving heart for your daughter & her teacher 💜
