More Notebooks

So what I figure is that I really need to figure out how to cover up the front without making it seem weird by leaving out the narrow strip where the binding is. Should I maybe spray paint the cover first with a colour that will blend into the cover sheet? But I don’t have that many spray paint colours. Oh well, I’ll figure something out.





Thank You Cards

Started using my new stash on the same day I got it. This has never happened before! It usually takes me around a week or so (or even more) to start using things because first I have to get out of the ‘Oh my god, it’s so pretty!’ phase. But I had to make thank you cards for the people who helped get my things to Pakistan, and I wanted to use pretty things. Hence the absent ‘pretty’ phase!¬†



Unboxing Stash

New goodies to play with! I get a crafty high from looking at stash pictures so these two might be my favourites ever. I got lots of 6×6 paper pads since I make so many mini albums, a Daily Grind alpha sheet which had lots of alphabet choices and cute phrases, some tiny wooden pegs (squee!) and my very first washi tape and very first wood veneer (Studio Calico cameras). Also a few Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine products, doilies and Printshop adhesive badges.






As the end of the year approaches, people in their last year of school get notebooks and get them filled by their friends as a way of remembering them after school. So many people this year gave me their notebooks to decorate and make special. Here are a few I’ve done.



The last book was inspired by a layout I saw on twopeas where envelopes were layered and little journalling cards were slipped into the pockets created.
