Dylan's Doodles


Last Christmas, Dylan (my 9 year old grandson) asked for note pads on his Christmas list. When I asked him what kind of note pads he wanted, he said, "Mimi, I just love to doodle and draw. So any kind will work." Needless to say, he received a plethora of note pads for Christmas from me, among other things! LOL!

Since then I've thought of Dylan's doodling, and decided to make him this special notebook using my new JustRite Stamper products!

First, I used my Harmony Rectangular Stamper and the Times Roman Font upper case and Times Roman Font Lowercase to write the word Dylan's. I stamped it on Neenah Classic Natural White using Jumbo Java VersaMagic ink.










I then used my Vertical Stamper (the narrow one) and the Times Roman uppercase and lowercase fonts to write the word Doodles. I stamped on my Acrylic Stamp Positioner . Then I removed the "D" from Doodles, inked the stamp and using the stamp positioner I stamped on the paper under Dylan's. Make sense? Perfect alignment...and so easy!


The notebook is one I found at Michael's for 66 cents! Don't you love a great deal? I covered it using Penny Lane Freebird paper from My Mind's Eye. I used my all time favorite Mono Multi Adhesive to glue all the paper down.

The stamps I used to embellish are from the Our Craft Lounge stamp set called Just Bugz . Aren't they adorable? I added some googly eyes and a little Stardust Stickles to the wings of the bug. I was doing my darndest not to make this girly. Do you think I succeeded? I can't wait to give it to him!!!


Just a reminder that we will have the Dreamy Treats giveaway going on. Be sure to see yesterday's post just below my Spellbinders post. You can win the JustRite product of your dreams if you're the lucky winner!

Ohhhhhh...I see that I just passed 150,000 hits on my blog counter yesterday. We must might have to do something to celebrate that tomorrow! :-)

Please be sure to visit Charmaine's blog to see what an awesome JustRite project she has for you today!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with something new.

What a great notebook, not "girly" at all. I think I am going to make a bunch up for my Grandkids for this Christmas. Won't that be fun. I bet they'll love to have notebooks with thier names on them.

Have a happy stamping day.

I'm sure this will be a big winner in Dylan's eyes! I love a good bargain too, but 66 cents?! JACKPOT!! I love the dsp, but those little bugs on the bottom are fantastic! Gotta love this one!
