Just something I made the other day, when I looked for a notebook to collect my ideas offline. I treasure the Moleskine notebooks. They are the best. But I didn’t like the color of the cover. So I went through my scrapbook papers and stumbled about these pretty ones, from the collection “Hello again” from Carta Bella. The paper is very thick and heavy and feels like watercolor paper. And that’s how the patterns look too, like painted with watercolors. This is definitely my favorite scrapbook collection, with this color combination and the lovely patterns.

DIY: dot notebook with washi tape by momentstolivefor

This little DIY is pretty simple and fast and oh so pretty, don’t you think? All you need are some cute washi tapes with different colors and patterns, that fit well together. Some wax papers, so the washi tape is easy to peel off. A new notebook with a blank cover and a 1 inch circle punch.

All you have to do is, choose two tapes and adhere them next to each other on the wax paper. Then use the circle punch that way, that both tapes fill half the circle. In this way you get a whole bunch of pretty circles with two different tapes, that you can stick easily onto your notebook cover. Just fold the circle between the both tapes, so you can grab a corner of a half circle. Have fun!
