Altered Composition Book

Hello friends!
Here is the composition book that I showed a couple weeks ago while it was still in progress.
It's now complete!

This book is for the hostess with the mostest!


It was so fun to make this retro style book.
 I added 3 vintage pink buttons and hand dyed seam binding.

The inside cover has this super sweet pink recipe patterned paper.

This book would work great for writing down your favorite recipes or writing down memories of time spent with your family in the kitchen.


Composition books are easy to alter and you can get easily addicted to making them!
I hope you try one!

The back inside cover has a similar pattern to continue the vintage pink style!

This book is now in our etsy shop!

Don't forget to leave a comment on my Distress Ink tutorial post

Have a great day, Lindsey

Hi Ladies,

Hey Lindsey how did you switch the item the lady was holding? I thought you didn't have a graphics program to do that with, or did you find that graphic like that? I switched the squishy margarine bag she originally had to a glass container of milk in one of my labels once, using Photoshop. I love playing with graphics...of course you and your mom know that. Once things settle down here, we need to seriously do some swapping. Your composition book is gorgeous, thank you for sharing all your lovely projects with us.

Lot's of love,
