Bling Altered Notebook by Mandy C


Mini Notebook (I used one from Wilkinsons)
An Old Book Page
Selection of Chalk Inks, Prima  and VersaMagic
Beaded Trimming
Die Cut Tim Holtz Pediment

·       Cover your book with the old book page (with double sided tape). On this particular notebook, there is a black cm at the top which I did not cover. Ideal line for your pediment gluing later on.

·       Stamp your main image (CI264) with Archival ink onto your stamping card. Leave to dry and then colour with watercolour pencils.

·       Adhere to book cover once dry.

·       Edge the image with a selection of watercolours then use the chalk ink to build up darker edges.

·       I stamped one of the ornate stamps from the Tim Holtz set using Prima Chalk Ink Knotted Wood onto the sides of the book cover but away from the main stamped image.

·       The pediment die cut was inked up with a selection of co-ordinating chalk inks, finally edged in VersaMagic Night Sky.

·       I used the same ornate stamp and ink to add some interest to the pediment before I glued it onto the top of the notebook.

·       Using red double sided tape, adhere some beaded trim to your book. The red tape is super strong so your trimming won’t fall off!


  1. A really fab make! Lovethe pediment die too! Must use mine! Hugstrace. X

  2. Great idea to use that pediment - goes really well with the stamp. Certainly doesn't look like Wilkinsons now :-)
