Sending a Smile

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would do something totally different today in the form of a notebook. As the kids are off school this week, I have been getting the “I’m bored” there is nothing to do ! So I decided to break out all my Designer Series papers and see what we could come up with. The girls enjoyed making these in all different patterned papers and it is amazing how different they all look.


These are very simple to make and they don’t use too many supplies but look very pretty and I would be happy to receive one as a gift.

The dimensions used are all in inches.

Affectionately Yours Speciality designer series paper

cut at 9 1/4 x 4 1/2 score at 3 1/2 and 7 1/4

also a piece 3 1/4 x 2 1/2.

I used the notebooks from Wilko’s that are about 20-30p. I have tried making my own before and yes I can do it but I can never get quite the cleanest of edges that I like. Spending the 35p Is worth the hassle not to make my own!!

I have done a little video on how I did the notebook.

So there you have it, very simple but effective I think.
