if not head on back to the Trendy Twine Blog HERE
you will not want to miss any of the gorgeous projects and the chance to win one of the 3 Gift Certificates being offered as blog candy!!

For my project I made a cute altered notebook~ 
Yes my
I started out with a notepad that I picked up at Walmart for $1 and covered it with some pattern paper that I had in my stash.....which was a PERFECT match to the 
Pink Midnight Trendy Twine
I wanted to do something different with the twine so I used my stitched heart die from
My Creative Time. I covered a piece of cardstock with super sticky tape..then ran lines of the twine over the top. After the area was completely covered, I die cut my heart out..Tada...doesn't it look awesome!!!
I added a button and a bow and glued it all the the notebook.
I wanted to make a cute little charm to hang from the pad as well so I used again the stitched heart die,the heart stamp that matches and some shrinky dink paper....
Talk about fun.....I think shrinking the whole thing was the best part..LOL!!
I tied it to the notebook with more Trendy Twine.
So there you have it....I hope you like my notebook!!!
