Hello Oopsey Daisy readers!

I am very excited to be here on Alison's blog.  She is so talented and has so many fun ideas!  I have been a reader of her blog for some time now.  I am Karen, and my little OL' blog is Pocket Full of Pink.  At my blog you will find tutorials, paper crafts, wood crafts and so much more!  I would love you to stop by anytime.

Now on to the craft!
Today I am going to show you how to make a cute notebook with monogram and matching pen.  I love making personalized gifts for people and this is one of my favorites!  I decided to make one for Alison.  This is her own little notebook with a matching pen for when she gets those awesome crafty ideas that she wants to remember!
Here's what you need:
Blank note book (I got a pack of 2 or 3 at Dollar Tree)
Pen that has a top that screws off on the top (Dollar Tree)
scrapbook paper
glue stick
foam stamp
paint
flowers, stickers, buttons (whatever you want to embellish with!)
First, you measure a piece of Scrapbook paper the same size of the notebook with a little extra for the top of the notebook.
Then, you glue the paper down.  I used a glue stick or you can use a tape runner.
This is probably the hardest step, but it is really easy!  Cut a small piece of paper that matches the size of your notebook.  Make sure you measure it the right length of the pen well.  Roll it in a tube shape small enough to fit into the pen well.  Stick the paper tube in the well.  Screw the bottom of the pen back on.
Next, I used a foam stamp and acrylic paint and stamped the letter onto a piece of coordinating scrapbook paper.  Once the letter is dry, cut out the paper to fit on the paper pad.
I also added a coordinating sticker on the bottom of the note pad.
Last step, I added a cute silk flower in the upper corner with a button on top!
What a fun personalized gift to give a friend, sister, etc, right?
Thanks so much for having me Alison!  I had a blast!!
