Mini School Kits: Part1

Hi Everyone,
Like I said yesterday, I've been working on some mini Back-to-School Kits for my nieces (and a friend). I started working on this project over a week ago. My goal was to finish in a couple of days but that wasn't the case. This part of the project was prob the most time consuming. I somehow thought that I could alter these notebooks in less than 30 minutes like other crafters do. Lol!

So onto the project. I was inspired by several sites to alter a composition book. I know I couldn' pop dot any images or get extremely fancy but I did want to add my flair to them. I used the Rock Princess cart for all 4 comp books. I used their favorite colors and images that related to them...

Picture 1: Front covers

Picture 2: Book #1 is for my niece that is a senior in HS. She's hoping to learn how to drive this year so I thought this super cool chick was appropriate. I'm not completely done with this one. I want to ink the bike and add some white to the tires.

Picture 3: Inside of the comp book. Since I have never been a fan of the composition book I decided to cover up the inside of it as well.  All 4 of them are covered in the same manner but with different colors. They all have a pirate cupcake and they are all stamped with "You Are Fabulous", a butterfly and a heart sporadically throughout the pages.

Picture 4: Book #2 is for my 8yr old niece that loves purple and music, like myself. I just need to add her name and then I'm done.

Picture 5: This is the back of the comp book. Like I said, they all look the same except for the colors and placement of the "Girls Rock" image.

Picture 6: Book #3 is for the daughter of one of closest friend. Her DD wanted the Rock Princess cart but it wasn't possible. So I thought I would do a kit for her as well. Audrey loves skulls. She will be turning 12 at the end of this year so she is already at that stage that she wants to dress with dark colors, skinny jeans and skulls. 

Picture 7: Book #4 is for my 10 year old niece that loves to sing and perform. She's slowly being corrupted by Provocraft. Lol. Every time she visits, she wants to use the cricut to make a card or make cuts to take with her.

Picture 8: So I managed to turn this into everything you saw.

Hopefully you are still with me. I do apologize that the post was long. I edited as much as I could. And hopefully I inspired you to alter your own comp book. If I did, please come back and let me know.

I am also entering these comp books in two challenges.
  1. Charisma Cardz Challenge - #33 "Die Cut" Theme, interpreted as I please.
  2. Cricut Cardz Challenge - #39 "Back To School" Theme. I'm not certain if only cards are allowed for the challenge/site. I sure hope not because I love that I found another site that wants us to play with our cricut.
Thanks for stopping by. As always I love to read your comments and feedback.

These came out fantastic! I think I am going to have to get this cart. Great job. I have a bunch of composition books that I have been wanting to alter, but just never get around to it. So now you have inspired me:)
