Altered Composition Book Blog Hop

If you have arrived here from Melissa's Blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by to visit, Welcome and please consider going to Joy's Blog and start this fabulous hop from the beginning!

I created three fun Altered Composition Books for you. These are so much fun! I created a Teacher version, a girl version and a boy version. The first one is the teacher version...
I used papers from my stash, the Apple guy is a My Scrap Chick file "Big Red" and the stamp is from one of Joy's new sets "Holiday Occasions", I created the Welcome in SCAL3 and I used "SF Toontime" font. I added a color coordinated clip and I just love this cute comp book.
My second altered composition book is for a girl and I just love it...
I used a paper from Echo Park's "Sidewalk Chalk" paper set for the binding and Chalkboard vinyl!!!! (Isn't that so super cool! I am in love with this chalkboard vinyl) I cut some shapes from Lettering Delights "Quirky Doodles" and used some chalk to say "School is Cool" and tomorrow I can say something different!
Last but certainly not least is my "Boy" version. I live on the Outer banks of NC and we are known here as the "Billfish Capital of the World" I have a White Marlin hanging on my living room wall that I caught on my 10th birthday. (I come from a very long line of Boat Builders and Fishermen) all of the boys around here are really into fishing and this fits the bill for them!
The papers are from Echo park's "Splash" paper collection, I created the svg for the blue marlin myself and the "Wishin I was Fishin", I created using "Oh {Photo} Shoot" font . I just love the way these turned out and I will be making more of these!!
The next stop on our Blog Hop is Theresa and here is a list of the entire hop just in case you get lost or (like happens to me, side tracked! LOL)

Joy said...

Tammy,
Your altered composition books are GREAT! I have to say that the way you used the Joy's Life stamps around the edges of that notebook was INSPIRING!! I've never thought of doing that! SUCH A GOOD IDEA! Your notebooks are so fun and creative. I LOVE your use of chalkboard vinyl too. That stuff is so much fun to work with, but again...I never thought of putting it on a notebook. GREAT IDEA! I loved learning about you and the white marlin you caught. I didn't know you're from a family of fishermen and boat builders. One of my very favorite shows is Deadliest Catch, but I was a fan of fisherman before that show. I respect the work it takes to bring everyone something that most take for granted. Boat builders? Sooo cool! I took a trip to the Mystic Seaport in Connecticut and marveled at those ships and the smell of the wood. Anyway...back to the hop...Thank you so much for being part of the Altered Composition Book Blog Hop!
Super Hugs,
~Joy~
