I decided to make a sparkly little notebook for this month reveal. I used adorable owl from Wilson #746 Digi set. It is printed out and colored with alcohol base markers. Some highlights was added with white Gelly Roll pen. To his belly and around the eyes I used Sakura Glue Pen to adhered the Buff Flocking. 

It was pure fun to make the notebook cover using glittered lacy background technique. I took it one step further with masking. Piece of white cardstock was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". After removing protective sheets I used them to die cut two sprigs with Spellbinders die. The owl was adhered directly to the sticky cover. I placed the sprig shapes on top and then added another strip of the protective layer across the cover. Now it was time for the lace and glitters (see following photo). After the background was done, I removed the strip and covered revealed tape with Cloud Nine glitter. I used Luau Green glitter to fill the last sticky places on the cover. 
Decorated cover was adhered to the black cardstock (just to make it studier) and I punched the holes for binding.

Here is the closer look of the lacy background. I adhered Daisy microfine glitter through the lace and after removing the lace, I added Tiger Orange microfine glitter. 

Both banners are cut from the cardstock which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". I added Luau Green micro fine glitter to one and Cloud Nine to another banner. "Hello" sentiment is from Diamond Medallion #530 stamp set. It's stamped with StazOn Jet Black ink on top of the glitter. I love how sharp the stamping looks on top of the microfine glitter.

Notebook sheets are designed in computer and printed out. On one side is the same adorable owl as on the cover and other side is a sentiment from the Gymnast #675 Digi set. 

The next stop on our blog hop is Marie. Enjoy!
