A Way Of Life Notebook (Frosted Designs)

This week at Frosted Designs our challenge is Embossing.  For my Design Team project today, I chose to use my CuttleBug to emboss.  One of my friends wanted an exercise journal and asked me if I would make her one.  She wanted a mini composition book so the paper would be lined.
I picked up some of these at Target during the Back To School clearance sale this fall.  We picked out some K&Co. paper to cover the front and back covers.  I adhered them with my ATG gun.
I cut out a tag and the words "A Way of Life" using my Gypsy.  Mariana wanted a quote or saying that represented what exercise means to her and this is what she came up with!

The tag is from Lacy Labels cut at 4.09w x 2.49h (I rotated it 90 degrees).

The font is Quarter Note at .84 inches.  I welded the words together and sized the group to fit on the tag.
I used this cuttlebug folder to emboss the tag.
I used Vintage Photo ink and a cosmetic sponge to ink the edges and lightly ink the top layer of embossing so it would stand out.
I cut out the words in metallic brown cardstock and used my Xyron to adhere them to the tag.
