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

A warm welcome to Blogmas Day 18!
I absolutely LOVE today’s wee project, it is a great idea for a last minute gift or stocking stuffer…
All you need is an inexpensive picture frame, give it a wee lick of paint, add a photo and embelish the front and you have a lovely gift to give just in time for christmas..
I have a few of these wooden frames, I got mine at Stampers Grove, I have a couple left over for future projects… and you don’t even need to paint them you could use a varnish or wood stain and keep it natural

Welcome to Blogmas Day 16
Today’s project is a Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms made from a reindeer head I bought in stampers grove and the plaque is cut from a cat food box 🙂
The reindeer looked like this before I started
I took out some mod podge matte and some Papermania decopatch papers
I painted the whole thing with white gesso as a base coat so that the papers would pop when they were glued once they covered the entire reindeer head.
The base of the head was covered in clear glitter, and I stuck some glittery snowballs on the sides pf the plaque, it was finished off with a wooden snowflake dipped in versamark ink and a coat of white encrusted embossing powder applied and when melted I sprinkled some iridescent glitter over top to make it sparkle..
and finally the reindeer was centred and stuck down onto the plaque and it’s done.
As always, thank you for popping round and I will see you all tomorrow for day 17!
