Soft Pencil Thursday!

Hello. Happy Thursday to everyone!!!! This week, we were asked to make anything but a card with our Soft Pencil image. I was going to make a scrapbook page, but later in the month we will be doing that with another image, so I decided to decorate a composition notebook. I think that I am going to add some tabs to the pages later and make an address book out of it. Not totally sure yet, it is for my daughter, and she has not decided yet.

Anyways, I was going to add some Designer paper to it, when I decided to create my own with my Ratiny image from the "animals collection" images. I inserted one into Microsoft Word, clicked on the image, then reduced it in size quite a bit, then I copied the image over and over until I had the entire page filled. Then, I took out a piece of 8-1/2" X 11" Bashful Blue Stampin Up card stock, put it into my printer and printed it out. Voila, cute little Ratiny's in blue all over the place! Ratiny and Michu are my favorite characters from Soft Pencil, so I loved working with this image. I colored the image with some Stampin Up Ink Refills and Blender pens, and added some little punched circles to follow along with the dot pattern on Ratiny's house roof. the scallop border was created with my Stampin Up Scallop border punch. The card stock colors used were Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery. Terrifically Tacky Tape was used to hold everything onto the composition book. The image was cut out and mounted with Spellbinders Rectangle Nestibilities. I think that says it all, if you have any questions, send me an email.

Oh my Gosh, I forgot to add a few things! First I want to welcome new Soft Pencil Design Team member, Fink, see her blog link on my sidebar. Second, I want to apol.ogize to all of the other Soft Pencil DT ladies for not visiting their blog and leaving some love on last week's image until just a day or two ago. I am having a bit of trouble adjusting to summer break having my daughter home. I think I am getting caught up though. Thanks for understanding. Third, stop on over to the Soft Pencil Blog, rumor has it that Elizabeth has some new goodies for us to see. I am going there next myself.

Until Next time...................Blessings, Lisa

Love, love, love your little notebook! Making your own DP with Ratiny is genius! Your daughter will be thrilled! I haven't been as good lately about commenting either. Sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging. Hugs
