Creative Chemistry 102 Notebook & Give-away!

I quickly wanted to share my notebook that I started with Creative Chemistry 101 and now have altered slightly for 102 and CC courses in the future.

Here's a look at my 101 notebook when I first put it together back in 2012. See link for more photos and details.

Since adding 102 to the coursework, I moved this front insert photo to the inside of my notebook. This page was created in PhotoShop Elements.

I created a similar page for the 102 section. Each one is inside a page protector which makes a great divider for the sections.

Then I created a new cover so that any future Creative Chemistry courses can be added.

Same with the spine. Same one from last time, only I changed the 101 to Online Classes.

As for the tags themselves, I am going to create mini books using Tim's Worn Covers/Composition Book like he showed in the 102 follow-up video. What a fantastic idea! I'll be sure to share those books when I finish them.

Meanwhile, I can't thank you all enough for the lovely comments all last week. I enjoyed the creative process so much and hope you did too. As my special thank you, I did a randomized drawing of a name from those who commented all last week and the winner of a special Tim Holtz inspired give-away is...

#18 - Shirley!
