Denim Denim Everywhere!

Our Creative Corner
weekly challenge is DENIM! Take some denim, add in 
3 ribbons or twine, and 3 buttons or brads on a project. 

My 10-yo niece spent a week with us this summer & before she left she picked out some papers to make her a compo notebook with... school starts NEXT WEEK for her so I finally got my hiney in gear to make this!

Printed Paper & Embellishments - Fancy Pants Off To School

3 Red Buttons - misc stash

3 pieces of twine - The Twinery

Blue Jean Pocket - via my worn out former yard mowing jeans

Ribbon - CTMH

I thought this was a good addition to the back of the folder along with that same ribbon wrapped around from the front


  1. I just love this Paula, and I bet your niece will too - very cool! The papers are great with the denim. Nice!

  2. Paula, Im sure your niece will treasure this notebook. I have a granddaughter that crafts with me, and we have the greatest time creating!
    I have to say I really loved your challenges these past two weeks! very clever, and very creative! Sometimes its good to think outside of the box! Thank you!
    I hope your weekend is wonderful! hugs, sharon w.

  3. Hello Paula
    What a great idea to do this on a book, it is unique and original and the Denim pocket looks great. I did have fun with this Challenge.

  4. I love how you incorporated that little pocket!

  5. Paula you are so amazingly creative! Aut is going to love this!! Will you make me one now? Pls, pls....

  6. Hi, Paula, this is such a cute and brilliant design. Just fantastic! ... :)

  7. I just love this card - what a great idea to use an old pocket from a pair of jeans. Absolutely brilliant.

  8. My money is on the fact that when she takes this to school YOU are going to be in business to make MORE! I already want to order one! :)
    Amazing challenges you've brought to the table and I thank you for finally inspiring me to cut up those old jeans I keep swearing to myself I'll fit back into, but never will! LOL...
    Your project is stunning...again. :)
    Have a great week and hugs to you.

  9. Sensational composition book, Paula! That paper is so cute and oh my gosh, is that pocket ever darling on there. What a fab design and all those little hearts are the perfect finishers! I agree with Lisa, all her friends are going to be wanting one too!

    Super challenge this week - I had a ball with it. Thanks so much for hosting.


  10. Too cool, Paula! What a fabulous idea to cover a notebook. I'm sure your niece is going to love this. That paper with the eyeglasses on it is fantastic. Thanks for the great challenge this week! Hugs! :)
