I mentioned Friday that I really needed a sketch book and while cleaning out my desk drawers Saturday I came across this notebook from Staples that I picked up a long time ago. The ARC notebooks are great and they have tons of different styles, sizes and accessories. You can customize this book by adding page dividers, to-do lists, graph paper, and note paper. It’s a notebook lovers dream book 🙂
First I started off with the ARC book from Staples. I’m using the 6-3/8″ x 8-3/4″ book.
I’m not really pink girl but this bright pink pulled me in.
For the pages I had picked up some extra packages of graph paper.
I used the page dividers to separate sections for card and scrapbook sketches. I also made a section of jotting down ideas.
For the card sketches I used a ruler and black pen to make both vertical and horizontal templates on the front and back of each page. The paper is nice and thick and the color didnt’ bleed through.
Here is a look at two of my card sketch pages.
and a scrapbook sketch.
Here is a photo of the completed cover 🙂 I used the Seen and Noted paper pad to decorate my book. Guess we can call this a bonus project for Scrappin’ on a Dime 🙂
I was on a roll with the cover and decided the page dividers needed a little dress up too. I tried not to layer to much so that it didn’t make the book too bulky.
and here is the divider for the scrapbook sketches.
I love how the book came out and I have it sitting right here on my desk for jotting ideas, creating sketches or going back and looking at old one. Have a fun day everyone,
