I Have Embossing Powder Swap

I've signed up for the "I Have Embossing Powders" swap on ccswaps. Decided to make a small notebook. For the outside covers I choose two of the Northern Lights Technique done on black glossy. On the front, stamped a large image with gold ColorBox ink, sprinkled with detail gold ep and heat set. After gluing the inside covers to the backs, inked the edges with gold ColorBox ink and coated with gold detail ep and heat set.
To add some texture to the Northern Light papers, sprinkled on some detail gold ep and heat set. Didn't use any ink as the ep randomly sticks to the glossy paper.
Used blank paper for the fillers and the Zutter Bind-it-All to bind the notebook together. On the front used the Zutter to punch additional holes along the bottom edge and wove in a decorative ribbon and tied on a gold colored bead.
Used the embossed worksheet pieces for the inside covers. Colored the edges of the image and saying with detailed gold ep as was done on the covers. Added a small brad heart to the image, it was dark grey, so I coated it with detail gold ep and heat set.
Added another quote with the edges done with gold ep to the inside back cover.
