Hello Kitty sticker book

Hi everyone!  It is so humid here that I get all sweaty just washing the dishes!  I hope that counts as some kind of exercise.

I've switched gears back to paper crafting and put my sewing on the side for a bit.  I wanted to make something fun and it was inspired by some sticker shopping.  I bought these cute stickers and instead of just mailing them to my friend's daughter, I thought it'd be cute to make a sticker book too.  Plus I had this idea of using clear contact paper on the pages so the stickers would be removable.  I bought the roll of contact paper for the Pokemon wrappers that I had sewed up.  Such an economical roll of contact paper!  I think I can still make a lot of projects.

Here is the cover of the book.  I used my Sizzix Hello Kitty die for the cover.  I had this one sheet of HK paper for a while too so finally I was able to use it.  I covered this page with contact paper as well just to kind of protect it a bit.

The next pages have little pockets to put stickers in.  I used the same paper scraps to decorate the pockets.

The next pages all look similar to these two except the Hello Kitty stamps in each corner are different.  I got this stamp set a while ago but only now am using it.  I hadn't realized how many were in the box and they are all so cute.  All of these white pages were covered with contact paper after I stamped and colored the images with Copics.

Here's a little close up of one of the stamps.  Adorable! 

This is the back cover which uses the same paper and is also covered with contact paper.  This book is 5.5 x 8.5 inches and I used my Cinch to bind it.  Each page is sturdy too.  The covers are thick chipboard and the inner pages are thinner chipboard covered with white cardstock.  Oh, I think you could probably even draw on the pages with a dry erase pen too.  I'll have to test that out.

Hopefully, she'll like it!  I remember I used to have a huge sticker binder when I was a kid and would even sell them to my friends for like 30 cents or something.  I would label the cost of each sticker!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Goodness, Eva this is so darned CUTE! Better than store bought...it's personalized! Natalie's gonna be so happy. BTW, how do you like your Cinch? Been wanting to get a page binder for a long time, but have heard it isn't as easy to do as it looks. True?
