Blogging has been a bit hit and miss recently. I’m useless at Pinterest too. If I’m short of time, I concentrate on my YouTube channel, with an occasional detour into Facebook. Lately, I’ve found my crafting time being nibbled away by – well, stuff. The great declutter/purge is pretty much done for now and all of my craft supplies are lovely and tidy and I CAN’T FIND ANYTHING!
Anyway, October is well under way and I just realised that there are two more paydays before Christmas, so I’d better get my skates on if I’m going to have any Secret Santa/stocking filler gifts ready! So today, I’ve taken a pre-made tall slim notebook and given it a facelift! Here’s what I did -
I almost didn’t order the Let it Snow paper. When I was going through my long-forgotten craft supplies I found a truly shameful amount of patterned paper and I resolved to be more careful about what I get in future. I’m usually left with quite a few sheets of retired DSP (but now I have a Cunning Plan to bind the leftovers into scrap journals!). I’m glad I had second thoughts, because these papers are beautiful.
Because I started with a ready-made notebook, this was a quick project and if you wanted to make a few of them at a time, can be batch-made (cut all your card/paper at once, then cover all the fronts/cover the backs/glue the lining/add the trim and so on). And of course, with a different pattern of paper, these notebooks could be a cute gift at any time of year.
