Twilighty Hexie Art Journal

“Do I dazzle you?”

– Edward Cullen & Bella Swan Twilight, p. 168

I've been puttering around with some little chipboard art journals and my Go! Fabric Cutter and Hexie die. What do you think?

I made this for a fellow Twilight fan whose birthday was last month. Isn't that apple fabric perfect!?! I tried a little McTavishing on the background. It still needs a little work and I think the next one I do {good things come to those who wait, Twi-Quilter friends :wink:} I'll use black thread so it shows up a bit more.

Love this little Twlighty notebook? Want one of your own? I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog and you can enter to win one here!

If you want to make your own, I loosely followed this tutorial for fabric postcards. I made a few alterations; for the front cover I used Pellon Peltex 72F II double-sided fusible stabilizer {I got mine at JoAnn's, but couldn't find it on their web-site} and only used Heat n' Bond Lite to for the appliqué t and to fuse the fabric to the back cover {inside and out}. If you're interested using these cute little On Board 5" x 5" Art Journals {Stampin' Up!® item #108495}, I just happen to know the cutest Stampin' Up!® demonstrator you can order your supplies from. Her name is Jenna and she would be more than happy to help you out. If you live in the US, you can place an order through her web-site {if you live outside the US, visit Stampin' Up!®'s website to find a demonstrator in your own country}.
