Raise your hand if you keep small notebooks in your purse?   If your raised your hands, then I am sure you have a few small notebooks where you add notes, ideas, etc.  I always carry at least 1-2 notebooks (and a TN) with me, but like to customize them so that it is easier to sort them out.  And what better way to make them unique than to use the beautiful Cute & Crafty collection. Let me show you!

My little notebooks are 4.5x6.5", and come with a simple white cover.  I chose to cover them with some of the pattern paper from the Cute and Crafty collection.  I chose simple patterns so that I can  customize each cover with the theme of the notebook...

My Ideas notebook has a piece of Chit Chat ( Handmade with Love) in the cover.   I always keep my covers simple as they sit inside a passport TN, so this reduces the bulk of the notebooks. For my title page, I trimmed a strip of the small stickers and used it to create the "washi" lines.  Then just added a title and a few stickers.

For my Sketch notebook, I chose to mat the sketchbook and pencils inside a round tag (Bits and Pieces pack).  For my title page, I ran a bit of washi tape, then added a few stickers to create the title ( I am not adding much more, as I need a smooth surface when drawing down ideas)

For my Notes notebook, I chose the typewriter Icon, and added a small Chit Chat piece for the cover.  My title page,  has a bit of washi tape, and just a few stickers to complement the theme of the notebook.

I love how these turned out, and how cute they look inside my TN.   I hope these inspire you to customize your notebooks using the beautiful DOODLEBUG Design collections.  XO
