Out came the beautiful Year of Cheer DSP, some plain little note books (from Asda) and the lovely Colorful Seasons Bundle.
I do love this Bundle and have not really had the opportunity to have a little play with it yet.
First I cut the DSP into 3" x 12" inch strips and then in half again into 3" x 6" inch strips and covered each little note pad.
As the summer is drawing to a close and autumn is breathing down our necks now, I decided that the pretty little skeleton leaf die would be an appropriate choice and look quite striking in both silver and gold on this project. I stamped and heat embossed the lovely sentiment and die cut it with a Stitched Shapes Circle Die.
I die cut the leaf many times in both silver and gold. The die was easy to work with and cut beautifully and easily. I was really impressed with the detail in the die.
One solitary leaf on each note book looks really stylish and eye-catching and the sentiment is a thought provoking one. Life is a beautiful thing.
So, after a morning of die-cutting many pretty leaves and beautifying some plain little notebooks I was really pleased with the end result.
These little note books will be winging their way through the post today to last week's customers together with a co-ordinating handmade card and a surprise sample product from the new Seasonal Catalogue.
Well that's it from me for now - I would love you to pop tomorrow. I have a really cute dinky project which involves chocolate !!!!
Bye for now,
