My husband got this notebook to give to his niece, Lara, who is 13 or 14 y/o. She loves pink and really wanted one of those Dell notebooks with a decorative cover, but the price just wasn't right. So . . . I used my handy dandy Big Shot to cut the vinyl elements that I applied to this notebook! SU products used, other than the Big Shot, were Serif Essentials alphabet dies, the bird from the Birds & Blooms Sizzlits dies, and the Swirly decorative strip die. The flowers were cut with the Sizzix Paper Sculpting Daisy die, and I used a Spellbinders die to cut the butterflies. I used SU's white gel pen to dot the center of the flowers. I hope Lara loves her decorated notebook!
