For my notebook I've just cut up a cereal box to use for the base of my notebook. My notebook measures 5x5 inches. I applied glue to the cereal box squares and adhered a piece of the #3 paper. To make the piece look tidy I cut some corners so the papers would lie flat on the other side. 
I made two of these pieces , one for the front , one for the back. I adhered the flaps to the card. 
I then adhered a square of the watermelon sensation card to the backs to neaten it all up and make it look pretty. I've used a cinch for my notebook but you can use anything you have in your stash. You could even cut some card and bend it over the top to make a hinge. 
Next I cut a piece of the Whirlpool cardstock to 3½ x 3½ inches. I edged it with the Peacock Feathers oxide ink and set to one side. I then cut out a slightly smaller piece of the #4 paper and also edged that with spun sugar oxide ink. I then adhered it to the whirlpool piece. 
For the "notes" label I laid down the letters onto a piece of the whirlpool card and cut a rectangle around it. Then edged it in Peacock Feathers ink. 
You get some lovely little gems in the kit so I added the rectangle one to the "O" to add a bit of bling.
For an embellishment I took two of the flowers from the kit. I stamped little flowers onto the blue one and edged it in ink. I then placed them together and threaded through the little stamens.
I then stamped some of leaves onto the cover overlapping the cardstock and papers in the Peacock Feathers ink. I also added the flower embellishment and some little crystals.
I adhered this piece to the notebook cover and there you go a very blingy notebook!
