A recipe book

Hello ladies I hope you are all well. I have been busy today making a little recipe bok for my new E-Shop on facebook, I wanted to try and get some bits up for mothers day and thought this would be perfect. I used the sketch on Friday sketchers for this one I hope you like it. I bound this myself using my bind it all and the image is of course a magnolia image which I couloured using my copic markers.

This is the front of the book the papers are by K&Co I have had them for so long i can't remember which pack they are from so if you know please can you let me know so I can buy some more :) 

This is the first of the inside pages they all look very similar just with different papers this is the cover for the starter section. 

This is the view from the side I made it strong enough to be able to stand on it's own that way when you have the recipe you want to use you can have it open on that page. 

I am entering this in to the following challenges;

Creative inspirations - no square cards allowed
Simon says stamp - Mothers day/girlie

A notebook for a friend

Hello, I thought i would show you a notebook I made for my friend Laura for her birthday. I got her a cup that said office goddess on so I thought I would take a picture to match. I have followed the sketch on Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge blog and have also used one of her images, I love these images they are great fun to work with;

I made this note book from scratch using some thick card board which i covered on both sides to make the front and back covers and then I cut some line paper up to make the insides. I bound this all together using my bind it all. The image was coloured using copics and I used distress inks around the edge to make it not so white and in your face. I am really pleased with how this turned out. Just need to make one for me now :)
