Artful INKables Coaster Note Book and Beaded Pen

Since I got my Bind it All from Clear Dollar Stamps, I'm hooked! It's just too easy to make such cute little books! Last night I put together this darling little note book including 3 page dividers and labels using one of Artful INKable's new releases called Pressed Petals. When I was out of town shopping with my friend the other day, I managed to find all kinds of new goodies to play with, including these 2 coasters from a Red Robin Restaurant! LOL I thought that I could make this cute little book out of them so I brought them home :)

I ended up watercolouring the blossoms using 3 of the upcoming SU in-colours and then embossing over the images with clear embossing powder. I the highlighted some of the areas around the stem and then sponged the kiwi over the entire image and then wiped the blossoms clean with a rag.

The coasters were covered with the new Bella Rose DP from Stampin' Up!s Fall and Winter catalogue. I assembled the coasters and covered the Old Olive with a later of Stickles. After letting that dry, bound the book and made my matching pen.
