A little of this and a little of that - using your stash - Journal book

This is a fun little book! I am actually using it as my mileage log! My mother in law laughs at me because who has such a pretty mileage log?!?  I do, and I love it! But this could be used as a little journal book too!

This is actually a new spiral bound journal book by Prima, the link is below. It is the only "NEW" in this project, everything else is from my stash.

If you click on the link below to see the original spiral book is on the left side - Yes, I cut it off, flipped the cover over and covered up the right side where I cut it with the black metal scallop piece from 7 gypsies. Then I cut the pages to fit cutting off the side with the holes from the original spiral holes. 

All of the inside pages are from the original spiral notebook, then I added note cards and postcards - this makes for a quick mini book because everything is decorated for you and it's a great way to use up your stash in a way that you will really USE!

This is one of the Websters pages post cards, they are a little shorter than the original size but that's ok because the longer pieces that show on the bottom all work together nicely. I love the mix and match of all the pages & note cards.

This is one of the original pages from the spiral notebook.

This is one of the note cards from Prima.

Supplies used that I can remember - because you know - some of it is a little (or really really) old and a little new and if I can find a link it will be provided:
Cover and inside base pages:  Prima - Divine collection - spiral bound art journal
Websters Pages postcards - used sideways as journaling pages
Prima note card collection box - used sideways as journaling pages
Cover dodah's:
Prima Pebbles
Prima say it in pearls - bling - cut apart and pieced on cover
Prima pearl butterfly
Paper cut apart and pieced
7 gypsies - scallop black metal piece (I can't remember the name of it but it is by 7gypsies)

So there you go, it's really a quick and easy way to use up beautiful note cards and post cards. I figured after all this time it was time to use them up! I hope this inspires you to check your stash to make something beautiful and useful!
