Book Binding and Botanicals

Hi Everyone!

I attended a workshop on Saturday with a fab tutor Cassandra Barron a.k.a. bookbinding with Cass on Facebook.   The workshop was on botanicals and book binding.. where we drew botanicals from the community gardens and turned them into stamps…

The stamps were then used to create patterned paper, which we then used to cover our book covers and decorating the signatures.

I had a great time and if you fancy booking a class with Cass you can find her on Facebook  here and  book workshops at Eventbrite here

Here are some pictures from the workshop..

Merry Little Christmas Card

  • Raspberry Cardstock (from Ross Papercraft Show)
  • Stampin Up Word Bubble Die
