Bright Ideas Notebook by Marjie Kemper

Today I'm sharing a little notebook I made with the Inspiration Lightbulb stamps.  I stamped the blank bulb twice on manila cardstock and then 'filled' one bulb with mini gears from Borders A6 and another with the Notebook background stamp.  I stamped the bases of the bulbs onto Ranger's metal foil tape and popped the bulbs up on cardboard.  
The main tag is inked with distress inks and covered with the mini gears again.  Can you tell what I used for the frame around the tag? They're the rooftops and doors from Kat's Creations Our House plate.  I couldn't stop playing with them after making my first AS piece back at the beginning of the month.   The inside is filled with a combination of blank tags and notebook tags. 
I've used heavy black cardstock to reinforce my covers and Dylusions ink sprays, distress inks, black archival ink, and distress markers for my coloring.  
I'd love it if you'd visit my blog (and please let me know you came by so I can come see yours, too.)

Hope you have a wonderful day, and find some time for creative play!

Marjie
