It's Mrs Furry Tale's birthday later on this week and Mr Furry Tale was so kind in giving me my birthday present early so I can play with it over the Easter holidays... it's already living up to its name...
...binding everything in sight! Here are a couple of notebooks made with the beautiful Tea for Two papers. There isn't a single design I'm not keen on in this pack and it's quite difficult choosing which side of the paper to use. One of the papers is really handy for making pinwheels like I've done above. The paper has a dotted faux embroidery pattern that you can just cut along and fold in the necessary triangles. I've secured the centres with a Calypso Coral brad that I got free in a SU offer last year.
The 'notes' letters were die cut with my well-loved Timeless Type alphabet set, first in Crumb Cake and then again in Early Espresso to give them the shadow (a tip I picked up on Pinterest).
My bind-it-all is already proving vital in my battle against the scrap mountain so I'm taking these little notebooks across to play in Di's Crafty Playground.
Card: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, SU packaging -- recycled into notebook covers!
Paper: Tea for Two, snippets for pages
Other: cocktail stick, bind-it-all, antique brass 1 1/4" binding rings, Big Shot, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies (retired), Calypso Coral brads (retired)
Here's a couple more little notebooks I've made with smaller bindings:
The sun is shining up here in north Lancashire and I can see the snow-covered summit of Ingleborough Fell as I type. Spring does feel like it's on the way, but saying this will probably cause another late snow flurry! I'll risk this picture though... they're hares anyway so maybe the snow will be 'hare today, gone tomorrow'...
Right, I'm off to see what else I can bind...... Thanks for visiting,
