Workshop News

Today was my last Tuesday morning workshop of the year and we made notebooks. I make a lot of notebooks - they make great gifts and also they go down very well at my craft fairs. Here's a couple that I made a while ago


This is the one I made today for the workshop


The gorgeous dotty paper is from a DCWV pad and so is the paper used to mount my owl. The owl of course is my SU 2Step Owl punch and she is sitting on a branch punched from the 2 Step Bird punch. A third punch - Boho Blossoms was used to punch the flowers. The initial is gorgeously glittery and is from K&Company. The notebook it's self was made from a cheap A4 pad and there is a full tutorial over on my Craft Club blog. I also used my faithful Bind-it-All machine to give it a professional look. You could also use ring binders or ribbon if you don't have a Bind-it-All.
Thanks for looking - Jacqueline xx

  1. These notebooks are such a good idea and the owl one is brilliant. Those three punches really are made for each other. I must dig out my bind-it-all which has been languishing on the shelf for ages which is such a shame

  2. These are just gorgeous Jacqueline and I really must use my Bind It All which was a birthday present a few weeks back and I have yet to do something with it.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  4. I'm always toying with the idea of getting a bind it all and this is just the sort of project that makes me want one! Love your gorgeous owl Jacqueline! Vx
