I thought I would share photos from another workshop that I attended back in May, it was an Indigo ink Tie Dye and book binding workshop held at the Granton Hub in Edinburgh.
It was a fabulous workshop where you learned to Tie Dye fabric with Indigo ink then use your fabric to make a book… the tutors were fabulous Elizabeth and Cassandra .. they can be found here and here if you are looking to do something like this in the future
Here are my photographs from the day…
Thanks for popping round
It is my turn over on the Colourcraft blog today with a fun project using fabric paints, brusho and a great curliecue stencil from Stencilgirl
Hop on over to the design team blog for a step by step tutorial

I made another book yesterday with the book binding skills learned from the workshop I attended on Wednesday on button hole book binding..
For this one I used a 12 x12 chalk board effect paper stack that I bought from the range for £3 and some black and white washi tape I bought from Ikea a while back.
I am really enjoying making books just now, although I have a few projects in the pipeline that I am working on which I will share in the coming weeks..
As always, thank you for popping round
I have a couple of cute little handmade books to share with you…. I attended a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh this afternoon on button hole book binding with Cass Barron and it was such a fab workshop, if you ever get a chance to take a class with Cass jump at the chance as you will not be disappointed here is a link to her Facebook Page 😊
And here is a view inside at the signatures
We finished our first books with some spare time left over so we got to start making another book, which I completed once I got home
I plan to make another couple tomorrow … they are so much fun to make..
i will leave a link to the stampers grove workshop list here as Cass has a few more workshops planned throughout the summer, they are not to be missed 🙂
thank you for popping in, as always 😊
I bought a 3 pack of nice notepads at my local supermarket (asda) this morning because I wanted to make a travel journal… I had bought a leather bundle off Amazon about a month ago with this project in mind and also for making a few other upcoming projects too 🙂
I love how it turned out.. the leather was a scrap but was big enough to cover the 3 books which were held in place with elastic hair bands and have enough to have a flap to fold over the front, which i didn’t trim and left it in the shape it was..
I have to say I do love it, but want to make another, this time actually stitching it onto the leather cover rather than with the elastic as I think I would prefer it to be more secure..
I think I will make up my own signatures for the next book too.. that should be fun and I have just the right paper in mind for it too 🙂
I was going to keep this blog post for tomorrow, but I was that excited about making it that I just had to share it with you tonight!
Thanks for popping in
Good Morning Everyone!
Just sharing a wee video montage of the crafty things I have been making in the first half of 2017..and there are not nearly enough of them lol.. will aim to make more Jul-Dec 😉
I altered three wee notebooks today..
I bought these a while back at Stampers Grove, they are great to alter and I also got to use that new kraft and black paper pad that I had bought from the Range last month.
I kept them very simple, they are a great size for sticking in your handbag/purse so didn’t want to embelish them too much
I cut the paper to size which was 2.5″ x 4″
then inked all round the edges of the books and the patterned paper in black archival ink
I applied scortape all round the reverse side of the patterned paper and stuck to the front and back pages of the books
Then I finished them off with some Tim Holtz small talk stickers
A nice quick and easy project for a sunday morning 🙂
As always thank you for popping round
