Udderly Amazing

I'm talking trends today on Paper Crafts' Moxie Fab World blog!  Did you know that cows are making their mark in the paper crafting market?  It's true!  Make sure to check out my Moxie post to see some of the great cow-themed products that are available!  (Psst!  There's also a great Lawn Fawn prize up for grabs!)

As many of you have heard, this has been a busy week in the crafting world!  The summer CHA trade show has been going on & I've been hanging out in Chicago this week to join in the festivities!  There are so many cool things to see at the show, and I wanted to bring along a notebook to jot down some of my thoughts.

(Click on photos for a clearer view.)

I found this blank little notebook at Target & dressed it up with some fun paper & a tag by Studio Calico.  (The tag and golden woodgrain paper were from their July kit.)  The Smash pens are the perfect tool to clip onto a notebook!  They have a pen on one end and a glue stick on the other.  That equals brilliance in my book!

Here's a close-up of my journaling tag.  I used one of my favorite fonts (My Underwood) for my text.

So what do you think about this latest trend?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.  :)


  1. Such a fun altered notebook...great colors and that cow is tooooo fun!

  2. Love the cover of your journal. The little saying under the cow is so cute!
    I will have to keep an eye open for all the bovine beauties in my LSS!
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I LOVE your udderly amazing little book! Those colors are so fresth, and the cow is the sweetest. *Now* I get the beauty of Smash pens--thanks for explaining that!

  4. Love this idea & cows R Kool, aren't they? I have a coworker that would do flip flops over this jounal as she's cowtastic as a coworker & has smooth moves when she's helping us! Hope I'm the lucky hoofer!!!!

  5. Are you kidding me?? How cute is that sentiment on your journal! LOOOOOOOVE it! This is why you are GTG! Well--one of the reason! I LOVE how you know what the trends are--and how you use a play on words! FAB papers too--I love love love it:)

  6. YAY! Moo-velous news! I am SO happy to hear that cows are on a comeback!

  7. Your journal is just to cute! My sister in law absolutely just loves cows, her house is almost a walking cow :) I am more into the chickens, barn, hay and horses, but have seen the stamp set and can see how it can easily make everyone happy!

  8. My son absolutely loved cows when he was little. At that time it was soooo hard to find anything cow related. I'm thrilled that there are so many wonderful images now. I guess he was just ahead of his time!

  9. I've just found your blog, coming from Moxie Fab World, & have added it straight to my favourites.
    That journal is great, & I think all the cow images are fun & a breath of country air.

  10. I think it's a really cute trend! I do like how u made your own!
