I designed and hand printed the patterns on 110 lb acid free premium card stock with water based printing ink.

I love the birds! The texture you use around the edges on them is great. How did you do that? I spend a ridiculous amount of money every Christmas for gift tags and I'd love to try to make my own this year. Thanks for the inspiration!

(And great books too, I keep giving looks of admiration to my friends who've made their own sketchbooks)

Those little jackets are wonderful!
Also, as far as the books go, did you make them, or did you stamp on ones that you bought?
Nice job!

Hi Brima, Thanks for the lovely comments. The texture around the edge is actually created using a rubber stamp I bought. Pretty neat huh?Cheesy

Thanks! Since 24 pages doesn't make a thick notebook, I just stapled them on the side and trimed off the edge.

I made them! I guess I'd save a lot of time if I print on store bought ones, but that wouldn't be very special:D Plus I covered them with an adhesive vintage vinyl sheet I found!
