The die that I used for the notebook itself is awesomely big: it cuts pages that are 5.5" x 8.5". But be forewarned! This die is just a tad too wide to fit into the Sizzix Big Shot. It will work beautifully, however, with any bigger die-cutting machine like the Sizzix Big Shot Pro or the Sizzix Big Shot Plus. It's a magnetic "movers and shapers" style of die so that you can cut it with or without the square hole (the square is an optional magnetic insert). There's also a tab shape included and a 3-hole-punch bar so you can add holes along the spine if you choose to. I decided to use the Cinch tool on this instead.
The cover is made with Tim Hotz's Trellis die in the background and I added some paperclips to give it that cubicle vibe I was going for. The flowers are from a punch and the letters are Tim Holtz's Label Letters. When you open the cover, this is the page that was peeking through the cover. It's a collage of paint and washi tape.
I've worked some mind-numbing desk jobs in my day, so I think that alibi sentiment stamp from Impression Obsession could not be more fitting.
To all of you cube-dwellers who sit between four gray carpeted walls counting down the minutes until 5:00 pm, just remember that at least you're establishing a sound alibi while you're there.
Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
