5 x 7 Mini Album

Hi Everyone!..

I have a mini album to share with you today, i made this for an upcoming workshop at Stampers Grove which takes place next Saturday 25th February..

So if you fancy joining us for a few hours, I will leave the booking details at the bottom of this post.

I have literally just finished making this and I have not had a chance to decorate the front cover yet.. it is hot off the press πŸ˜‰


I think i am going to start making another one tomorrow.. they are time consuming but very rewarding and Β lot of fun if you like methodical crafting


It has a magnetic strip closure, and it works really well considering the volume of content in the mini book


I love this old paper line called Sycamore Street from stampin up…

Would I have done anything different when creating this… yes, I think I will ink the edges next time πŸ˜‰


If you would like to come along and make one you canΒ call James or Emma to book a space on 0131 221 9440 or pop into 92 Grove St, Edinburgh EH3 8AF

As always, thank for popping round.. see you again soon

Blogmas Day #1

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all having a good week… and it is Friday tomorrow YAY!… I do love the weekends πŸ˜€

Remember last week I mentioned I was going to buy more post it notes and make a wee set and record a video tutorial?.. I managed to get it all done and as I write this the video is uploading to youtube πŸ˜€ so you will get two blog posts tonight ..


I made them nice and sparkly with pink and white glitter card, I also used a punch set that I bought in Hobbycraft a month or so ago, you get 4 small punches in a pack.. hearts flowers, circles and stars..


I love how these turned out and I will be sending these to a special wee girl I know who will just love them πŸ˜‰

I nearly forgot to mention, I fancied doing a blog post for every day up until christmas day a bit like vlogmas instead more of a blogmas πŸ™‚

As always, thanks for popping round

See you tomorrow for day #2 of Blogmas

Jotter Pad Tutorial

A great and inexpensive way to turn supermarket basic brand note pads into something really special πŸ™‚

My daughter came up to the workshop to print off her English homework whilst I was making these, she thought they looked great and were a fab idea. Β  She now wants to make some to give to her friends and her gran at christmas.

Here’s the tutorial…

  • Take a supermarket own brand jotter pad 210mm x 73mm ( this one cost 37p)
  • Cut some patterned cardstock / paper to the same size 210mm x 73mm
  • Put a strip of double sided tape along the top edge


  • Cut the top sheet off but leave the top canvass strip attached.


  • Remove the double sided tape from your coloured paper/cardstock and place it under the blue tab that’s left and press down to adhere.


  • I then took a strip of cardstock, punched the edge with a Fiskars punch and fixed to the jotter with double sided tape.


  • The I added a some co-ordinating self adhesive strip from the pack


  • Added the word notes from the self adhesive alpha letters


  • Added a couple of self adhesive hearts and a gem


  • All done…. here’s the finished project


Finally the supplies list :-

  • 1 x cheap jotter pad
  • Basic Grey Nook & Pantry Collection
  • Prima e-line gem
  • double sided tape
  • Green Cardstock
  • Fiskars treading water punch
