These are some of the latest journals I have created

This is a stitched journal which had a plain vinyl cover and an elastic closure. I added a page marker ribbon, pockets to the front and back  inside covers and embellished the front cover.

This journal is spiral bound, and had a plain cover. I have covered and embellished the front of the journal and added a pocket to the inside front cover.
There is an elastic attached to the back cover to hold the journal closed.

This is also a spiral bound journal, with elastic from the back to hold it closed.
I have again covered and embellished the front of the journal and added a pocket inside the front, and this time also a scene to the back cover.

Altering a plain journal or notebook in this way makes a lovely small gift.

Till next time, be happy

A Dozen Cupcakes... Stampin' Up - Sprinkles of Life


Cupcakes are so cute, not to mention sooo delicious!  A friend of mine has a Cupcake Stall and when deciding on a gift for her, I spotted this awesome cupcake stamp and punch set created by Stampin' Up... 

Of course, you cannot make just one cupcake, you need to bake a dozen - so I created a dozen little gift cards for her to use as she wishes.

Some have 'cherries' on top and some have 'flowers', each displayed on their own ribbon 'platter' with a delicate doily as well!

Who could resist a pink cupcake giftcard?

Kaszazz Keep Calm and Colour - Boho...


Kaszazz have created these quick and easy sets which include white card, saying and images for you to colour.  This particular set is named "Boho"...

You can colour your images using any form you wish - pencils, paints, watercolour or as I have used - markers. After colouring and choosing the greeting for you card, assemble the card however you wish. Please note - I have added a layer of blue card (not included) to make my colours 'Pop'.  I have also added rhinestones on three of the four cards (also not included).

This set includes the images of the Hamsa Hand, a zentangle, an elephant and a sugar skull.

 (The Hamsa Hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings it's owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. The hamsa hand has a wide variety of different spellings which includes hamesh, hamsa, chamsa, and khamsa). 

Kaszazz have also created other Keep Calm and Colour sets in a selection of themes.

Have a Boho kind of day!

Small Writing Journals


This is the latest selection of small writing journals created






These journals have hard covers which we covered with papers inside and out, and then embellished with washi tapes, gems, chipboards, brads, flowers and die cuts. Ribbons were added to the spiral binding. 
These books are small enough to fit in a handbag and make great small gifts.
