Dollar Find Friday and Friday Night Chat

Join us tonight right here in the TSG forum for our Friday Night Chat!
Everyone is welcome and we love to meet new people :)

Hey everyone!! I'm here with this week's Dollar Find Friday post. My dollar find was in the $1 bins at my "not so" local, Joann's. It was this cute little address book, that I decided to make cuter.

I started by removing both the front and back cover. I then covered them with black card stock, then layered that with red and some Rockabilly DP from SU.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Dance set, and layered it with red. My flowers and leaves were stamped separately, then colored with Copics, cut out, and added on. I did add brads to the center of my flowers....for some reason, they just needed them

And there you have it, my altered address book!! Here is a tip for all of you out there....when adding your card stock layer to the front, be sure to use a strong adhesive. JUST DON'T put it where you are going to have to punch holes...what a mess!! Don't ask me how I know....

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you enjoyed!!


  1. Awesome project, Jessie! How do you remove the covers? I have tried before and it always messes up the holes.

  2. I use my paper piercer to gently pull them apart so that they get a little wider. Then it is EASY PEASY!!


Thank you for visiting the TSG Blog, happy stamping!
