Kate Nolan Denham here and this week Core’dinations has paired up with Petaloo to bring you some fantastic back to school projects.  Today I am sharing an altered notebook showcasing Core’dinations Chalk Core and Petaloo Trims and Embossed Daisies.

Notebooks are a must for school, but altered notebooks seem so much more fun! I chose the most school appropriate cardstock, the new Core’dinations Chalk Core Cardstock to create the base of my notebook.

I die-cut a piece of the blue Chalk Core to look like notebook paper, then scored ruled lines using my Scor-Pal and sanded the lines so the blue core was showing. The word “notes” is just the back side of the Chalk Core.  Core Tip: To ensure that your title matches your project, just turn your cardstock over and use the back side!  Then, I added some perfectly matching, layered Petaloo Embossed Daisies.
Don’t you just love how much the white Chalk Core looks just like a school chalkboard!  I used the Outline Technique to make my “I {heart} School.”  Just and over some chipboard and you have a great title. You can find this technique in the Core’dinations Technique Videos.
