Word Art Wednesday

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments and prayers for my disc surgery one week ago today.
Surgery went well and I even got to go home the same day!
Recovery is slow but steady -- still plenty of pain, some nausea and lots of rest.
Missing all my friends in "blogland" -- but hopefully I'll be back sometime next month!
My fourth Wednesday as a guest designer at
Word Art Wednesday.
I decided to incorporate today's verse into a notebook cover.
I cut the pages out of a regular notebook and trimmed them to size. 
 (Look for them at "back to school" time -- I got mine for 19 cents)
For the back cover I used a plain piece of yellow cardstock

  • Free word art (below)
  • DP - Classics (K & Company)
  • Poppies die (Provo Craft)
  • Yellow Cardstock
  • Green eyelets
  • Green, polka-dot ribbon
    • stems and leaves of flowers
  • Blue ribbbon
  • Black felt tip pen & Sharpie blue marker
    • faux stitching
  •  Green rhinestones 
    • centers of flowers
  • Ornate label #3 (Sizzix)
  • Comb binding machine
 Here are some FREE printables for you using today's verse

What a beautiful notebook. Love the quilt work on the cover. Thanks for the tip about cutting the pages from a regular notebook. I'll have to stock up on these while they're on sale :). I really enjoyed you as a guest designer at Word Art Wednesday. Continuing to pray for your recovery.

I am glad to hear it went well. Take some time to rest and recuperate.. Lovely book! A piece of art starting with a 19 cent book, amazing!

I love your notebook cover and I love how you repurposed a larger notebook for the inside pages. I love lined pages in my custom notebooks, but I never thought to cut down a larger notebook. Thanks for the great idea!
