Notebook and Cover

Hi there....


Thanks Linda - you were right - today has been much better ....... 


I have a couple of things to share today... 
One thing that I really love to make are notebooks... well I suppose it should be notebook covers as I always have lots of inexpensive note pads in ... my class love doing them too.



I did this one today... and made a slip cover for it.

Edit note - I forgot to say that this is also for the Play Date Cafe Challenge - well my interpretation of these colours



Not sure if a note book counts though....




For the base I printed antique cream onto white card stock and some Vinnie Pearce digital text, the green script paper is from Papermania's Regency range ... so delicious, the blue 'Paris" paper is digital collage  from Cassi's Creations Etsy shop - (Here) She has some really mouth watering goodies - you should take a look - the cupcakes are just yummy!

Of course I had to add some lace, a flower and a glittered butterfly... ribbons and buttons seem to be compulsory for me too....


It slips neatly into this cover - I printed the card stock using special effects from one of my programs - hence it looks like different shades, but I kind if like it as it looks more 'aged'. I also covered the slip with self adhesive clear wrap to give it protection when I just toss it in my handbag...
What do you think??

Now the other thing I wanted to share with you is my bargain of the day... ooh! you are gonna be so jealous... Take a look at this



How yummy is this? There are no less than 50 yes 50! tags in this box, with ribbon too...


Look at those pretty sewing tags ... so you can give your handmade stuff  with a ready made tag...
And the box is really solid so you can use that too - sorry that the picture is not so good - my camera battery ran out, but you'll get the idea...




And the best bit is that this whole box only cost me £1.29 which is ... about $1.89 to you my friends in the USA. I bought a couple of boxes of course... well I had to.

So I'll leave you drooling whilst I get myself some dinner - my Hubby is on a golfing day so won't be back till late... time to put my feet up and maybe even have a glass of wine (or two?)...

Thank you for stopping by ... you are so kind

Keep safe

Ros
