Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!!

Where were these ideas about 2 days ago? We're doing something like this for our church activity tonight. Great idea with fabric, washi tape and having the office supply store cut things in half. OO I'm so excited to go try all of these ideas now! :) Thanks for the great info!

I watch your video every week...we are kindred spirits. I have been making the "cut down" notebooks for a few months now. Love them. I have not considered cutting the composition notebooks. Gotta try that soon. I am going to use this idea for summer camp in a few weeks.

I watch My Craft Channel every day. I do a lot of altering notebooks so have done most of your ideas already. Not the fabric one yet. My favorite is the composition books cut in half. I found a place that cuts them for nothing! Cool!

I love to watch you on the craft channel. You do an amazing job. You are a wonderful teacher. Thank you. These notebooks are awesome. I bought a bunch of these notebooks at Target for 10 cents a piece. Even though I am a retired teacher, I still couldn't pass up this deal. Now, I can play. Thanks again.

I loved the long skinny note books. And of course thinking the upcycled note books from cereal boxes will be a hit with my boys! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration! ;)

I watched your video today and can't wait to try some of these notebooks. I am a teacher and am hoping to make some of these and give them as a gift to my coworkers for the end of the school year. I am especially excited to go and get some notebooks cut at my local office supply store!

I just checked out your Pinterest Board and can't wait to get to work! So many great ideas.

I just watched your notebook episode. I decorate notebooks already but never thought about having comp notebooks cut in half, I'm going to try that! I am also going to decorate and/or have my teens help me decorate their boring comp notebooks for classes this fall. Studying is more fun when you are looking at something interesting! Thanks for the ideas!

I watched your episode today about notebooks. I decorate notebooks already but I never thought of cutting comp notebooks in two, I'm going to try that. Also I am going to decorate and/or have my teens decorate their comp notebooks this fall. Studying is more fun when you are looking at something decorated!

How do you keep the edges of the material from fraying? I had a hard time with that.
