  1. Lovely notepad and card, I have just purchased my first lot of seam binding after seeing you use it on your beautiful creations, thank for inspiring me, I hope to catch you on ustream soon 🙂

  2. Sorry I didn’t join you all sooner tonight but it was nice to catch up and might see you again on U-stream some other evening this week. Love these two items, the little hearts at the bottom are a nice touch and the paper is gorgeous. I’ve put a photo of my Dobbies haul up on my blog for you to see the bargains I picked up.
