#TASHToSchool2017: 3 Cute Notebook Designs

More notebooks! Simply had too many that I needed to make another post just devoted to notebooks! I do hope that you guys like the last one. If anything looked different, that’s because I was typing on my tablet, and probably will be for a little longer. Maybe a week. Enough talk. I like to keep my introductions short.

1. Lily Pulitzer inspired Notebook

You will need a computer and a notebook or binder.

The Only Step. Go to happilyhope.WordPress.com and print of one of her binder cover printables. Glue down and rim in duct take for a smooth finish.

2. Song Lyric Notebook

You will need a notebook, some lace or other material that is similar, cardstock paper and some sort of label.

Step One. Cover the notebook with your cardstock paper and use the material chosen above to section it off. Believe it or not, I used a drawer liner, and it worked just fine.

Step Two. Write the song lyrics in the gaps. You can write the lyrics to just one song, songs by one artist or collage a bunch of songs that you like or lyrics that you like.

3. Sunset Quote Notebook
You will need paint inthe colors of through sunset and ocean and a notebook.

Step One. Paintthe notebook in an ombre over the top two thirds. Once that is dry, paint the ‘ocean’ with blue. Wait for it to dry, then paint on the wave crests in white.

Step Two. Once the entire notebook is 100 percent dry, write on some smart aleck quite in black Sharpe and draw some details to enhance. Because I was painting my sketchbook I wrote ‘Art does not have match your sofa’, a Suzy Toronto quote. Seal with anything you have to seal it with to finish.

Thanks for reading my blog. As usual, you can show your support by following my blog and liking my posts. I hope you enjoyed these notebooks, and also my last set, DIY Tumblr Notebooks 2017.  Hopefully next week I’ll have a full BTS post up, and some more summery stuffs well, because the summer aint over yet. Post soon,

Great Songs You’ve Probably NEVER Heard of You Should Listen To This Summer

Who LOVES music? I do. I love little known music. It’s a special, almost exclusive thing. I like punk and rock. Indie and indie rock. Some pop. Billy Talent and Melanie Martinez. Cage the Elephant and AC/DC. Stuff like that. Today, I;m going to share some great songs that you probably have NEVER heard of that  you should try this summer.

 

the crutch1. The Crutch by Billy Talent

This is a song meant to be played LOUD AS POSSIBLE. It’s punk and rock going back to their original Billy Talent vibes. One of the best songs off their new album Afraid Of Heights, for which they were nominated for Rock Album of the Year at the 2017 Junos. I can’t get enough of this song or this album. Ot his band, for that matter. Ben Kowalewicz’s voice is so unique.

Name: The Crutch

Artist: Billy Talent

Album: Afraid Of Heights

Release Year: 2016

dollhouse

2. Dollhouse by Melanie Martinez

A few years after she was axed form The Voice , Melanie Martinez blew everybody away with her Dollhouse EP, closely followed by her full length album, Crybaby, featuring the first two tracks on Dollhouse. Dollhouse is a song baout first impressions and family troubles. And how what seems perfect is usually far from.

Name: Dollhouse

Artist: Melanie Martinez

Album: Dollhouse EP, Crybaby

3. River Below by Billy Talent

Go ahead, call me obsessed. This is one of their older songs, but one of their best. It has a lot of screaming, but in their early days, it was their style. It does a number on Ben’s vocal chords, but it’s their thing.

Name: River Below

Artist: Billy Talent

Album: Billy Talent

Release Year: 2001

Salute

4. Salute by Little Mix

Another brilliant set of X Factor rejects who managed fame despite. Salute is an empowering anthem to women and girls everywhere, urging them to stick up for themselves and show who’s boss. It;s the girls, by the way.

Album: Salute

Release Year: 2015

lies

5. Lies by Marina And The Diamonds

First, I need to thank jessiepaege for introducing me to Marina And The Diamonds in a video similar to this. Also, this isn’t vintage. The cover just looks that way. Great artist. You should listen to her stuff.

Name: Lies

Artist: Marina And The Diamonds

Album: Electra Heart

colors

6. Colors by Halsey

A great song by a great artist. Have you heard any of her new stuff on Hopeless Fountain Kingdom? It is so good. Colors is a song about something taking over someones life, weather it’s drugs or work or such. Great song.

Name: Colors

Artist: Halsey

Album: Badlands

Release Year: 2015

the other side

7. The Other Side by Alessia Cara

Great song by a great Canadian vocalist (Sorry Ben Kowalewicz!) I love Alessia’s music, and even though I don’t watch The Get Down on Netflix, I am in love with this song.

Name: The Other Side

Artist: Alessia Cara

Album: The Get Down Part II

Release Year: 2017

Billy Talent II

8. Perfect World by Billy Talent

I absolutely LOVE this song!!! The talent is definitely visible here. One of the best breakup songs with a great guitar riff from Ian D’Sa, like always. Ben definitely has a lot of vocal strength on this track.

Name: Perfect World

Artist: Billy Talent

Album: Billy Talent II

Release Year: 2006
