back in my craft room

hello all,

Well this is my first creation since I came back from hols....yes using some of the paper from my new paper stacks!!!!......unfortunately the skin looks a little orange on the photo, it doesn't in real life!

My notebook is almost done....I used to love going shopping for a new of the most important purchases of the year for me, that along with a I love it more because I get to make myself one.

The Black paper is from "momenta - occasions&celebrations".....It is really meant for wedding or anniversary pages, as all the sentiments have a love theme..but I liked it as it was black, with white script and that seamed perfect for a notepad....the flowers have been made using "spellbinders - flowers creation 3".........and I have used my current favorite stamp a gorgeous Leanne Ellis design!

This is my entry for:

Quirky crafts - Girly Girl
Crafty Creations - use your Favorite stamp ( that's a difficult many gorgeous stamps to choose from..this is definitely my current fav, as you can see from my blog it has been used rather a lot....)

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls

  2. Morning Jules,

    Have to confess to still not getting this stamp, it's been on my wish list for weeks....

    Great colouring and shading here and I love the sparkle and those flowers....Gorgeous!!!!

    I really love the colour choice too.

    I brought a zutter the other day, hope to make my own note books in the future as soon as I figure out how to use

    Thanks for your lovely comments, its been a bit nerve wracking making samples for Wendy's new stamps though, I am not too confident when it comes to my own creations and hope I don't let her down....
