Rita Barakat +Finders Keepers + Scrapbook Adhesives Hop

It may come as no surprise that I created with Sing. I know, all I can say is I tried not to, but she's my favorite. I created a book journal for my Fall reading. I stamped Sing on canvas fabric using Plaid Fabric Creations Paint. I also stamped a few of the header banners from Finders Keepers Jots & Dots: This Week stamp set.

I allowed the fabric paint to dry and then heat set it before sewing the journal cover.

 I sorted through the Libris paper crafting kit and the Jots & Dots: Dot Grid Notebook.

I made the Sing canvas cover a B6 size and the Jots & Dots Notebook was bigger, but no worries. Grabbed my handy dandy seam ripper and carefully ripped through the binding. I trimmed the notebook to fit the B6 journal cover and sewed it right up.

First I decorated the notebook cover with the stickers included in the Libris kit. I also Scrapbook Adhesives Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets to add some fun foil accents throughout the pages.

I added a pocket to store the library card cut outs from the kit. Added some fun quotes, stickers, foil and stamped through out the notebook. 
Here are a few of the pages:

Here is the front and back over of the Sing book journal cover turned out:
