Thank you for joining me today. This is a busy time of year for crafters, we are making projects that we can give as Christmas presents and many of us are making them for craft fairs too.
Notebooks are really popular but the pretty covered notebooks they sell in the shops are so expensive. I always have a notebook close by, they are all around the house and there’s always one in my handbag.
Making you own covered notebooks is quick and easy and very inexpensive. I buy lots of Shopping List style notebooks and cover them in the recipients favourite colour. These are perfect to give as gifts or to use as a stocking filler.
I like to give notebooks that everyone can use all year round so I tend to stay away from a Christmas theme. I also do this because if I have any left over I can use them as gifts throughout the year.
I was using the Many Mittens Framelits Dies for another project when I came up with the idea of using oven gloves/mitts to decorate some of the shopping list notebooks.
I hadn’t used any of my Whole Lot of Lovely DSP yet and I found this beautiful floral image to die-cut the oven gloves/mitts. I adhered the Pool Party cardstock cover and the oven gloves with Tear Tape. If you have Fast Fuse you could use this instead, I have never tried Fast Fuse but Stampin’ Up! have an amazing offer on it at the moment so I have ordered some to give it a try.
If you buy the Fast Fuse Adhesive Runner you get 2 Fast Fuse Adhesive refills for FREE that’s a saving of £14 – Offer available until 10th October. For details click here
I used the Brushwork Alphabet stamp set to stamp ‘Mums Lists’ onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Pool Party ink. I cut a matting layer out of a scrap of Pool Party cardstock and used a dauber to ink around the edges with Pool Party ink.
I hope you like my Oven Gloves Notebook. If you would like to receive my posts by email add your email address to the ‘Subscribe to Blog via Email’ link at the top of the right hand column.
Have yourself some crafting fun.
The products used to make todays project are listed below.
*When designing a project or when I CASE a project I always use my cheap cardstock to make a prototype before making it with my Stampin’ Up! cardstock. I do check the measurements I add to my blog posts but when typing lots of measurements mistakes can be made. When making any project I recommend making it first with cheap cardstock before using your best cardstock.*
