Customize your notebooks, planners, and albums with this 60-Second Notebook Cover Video Tutorial by Elena Olinevich. This tutorial is so fabulous and a great addition to our #SimplyG45 series. Elena uses our Raining Cats & Dogs – Deluxe Collector’s Edition. This collection is out of stock, however, we currently have NINE others available that would be perfect for this tutorial, along with any of our other paper collections. If there is one thing Graphic 45 excels at it is offering gorgeous paper collections that are great for fussy cutting your own embellishments. Now, the time has come to introduce these stunning notebooks!
“I like doing notebook covers, it’s quite simple and cute gift for any occasion. I like to combine fabric covers with paper embellishments, so I decided to show you how easy it is to recreate it.
I covered the cover with the fabric that I ‘ve made myself – so I cut a thick cardboard and connected 2 pieces of it with a cardstock piece, then added the fleece on top of it and wrapped with fabric.
What I would like to suggest you to try is – adding the stitching to your paper layers. It depends how thick material your sewing machine can deal with, however, you can try on stitching 2 paper pieces together. It’s a good alternative to distressing the edges, as they look even in both cases.
Here is a quick video showing you how to create the paper layering, all you need is an image as a main focus, 2-3 layers to put underneath, and a few fussy cut outs would be a perfect match too.
I worked with Raining Cats & Dogs DCE collection. it’s so great if you are a pet lover.” ~Elena

“I like using flowers for my projects, especially cards. Recently I’ve started creating several cards at once, so it’s quite easy when you have enough flowers nearby. What I like about Graphic 45 papers most of all, is that there are plenty images to fussy cut off from the papers."
