Back to School Notebooks and a giveaway !! - Ruby Rock-It

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my last project for Ruby Rock-It. I've decided not to re-apply for the next term even though I've absolutely loved creating for them!! Erin is the best and I'll miss her dearly! And because this is my last Ruby Rock-It project I've decided to do a little giveaway. You'll find the details at the bottom of my post. 

For today's Ruby Rock-It "Back to School" feature I decided to dress-up these fun little notebooks. I don't know about you, but my kids and I always carry around little booklets like these: my kids to school and I, well I bring them everywhere I go. 

When I bought these "bare" notebooks at a local shop they looked like this: 

And because I'm always on the look out for fun projects to alter or dress up I bought them. For today they came in very handy! I used the "Bella! Kinda Krafty Paperz" which were of course perfect for these kraft booklets. 

I loved the journaling cards from the sheet "Journal It" and decided to use those for the front. The words were cut from the sheet "Kinda Krafty, Chatterbox":

For a little more contrast I used a black pen to doodle along the side of the background paper: 

The bookmark is a tag cut from one of the sheets of the "Kinda Krafty" collection ("Tag It") and adhered with two strings of twine, to which I attached a little metal heart. 

Now, as I can't wait to see what you would do with these (bare) notebooks I decided to do a little


I'm giving away a set of 3 bare notebooks to dress up with some Ruby Rock-It products (which I'll also send you). All you have to do is leave me a comment (make sure you'll add your email address, so I can email you!). A winner will be announced a week later. Open to everyone! 

Last but not least the supply list: 

Bella! Kinda Krafty Paperz Tag It
Bella! Kinda Krafty Paperz Journal It

From The Twinery: Charcoal, Peapod, Lilac and Maraschino Solid twine. 

Other supplies: metal hearts, pen from K&Company and a set of Hema kraft notebooks.
