My Other Creations: Matchbook Notebooks using The Stamp Market's Vintage Slides Die

"Frame It" is this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme.  It seemed like the perfect opportunity to whip out a new set of dies I've been excited to try: The Stamp Market's Vintage Slides dies.  I used them on the front covers of these little matchbook notebooks.

I started by cutting out seven matchbooks using Tim Holtz patterned paper and the Tim Holtz Matchbook die.  I also cut out seven "frames" using The Stamp Market's Vintage Slides die.  I cut the frames out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper.

I stamped images onto my slide frames using a bunch of different Inky Antics stamp sets and Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink.

I sewed my slide frames to my matchbook notebooks and smeared on some acrylic paint.

While that paint dried, I cut out several strips of patterned paper and sewed them to a piece of scrap text paper I had.  Then I added some more paint to blend the patterned paper into one giant collage.

I cut up my collage page and attached bits and pieces of it to my books.

I cut pages out of scrap paper and sewed them inside of my notebooks, then I added sentiment words to the front of some of the books.  All of the sentiments came from Inky Antics stamp sets.  I added some Tim Holtz flowers on here and there and bound each notebook closed with rubber bands.

Here's a view from the top when one is open:

I love books and notebooks of all shapes and sizes and had fun making this set!

Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
