Ooh a new book….

 

How are you today?  Have the recent snow flurries affected you?  If it has i hope it has given you some crafting time if you are not able to get out.

As part of my new year re-organisation I decided to treat myself to a new diary.  I wanted something that looked crafty, but was functional.  I debated about an Organised Mum diary, had a look on the bay, amazon etc.  And then I found it!  I love it, it’s sooooo Stampin’ Up! and yet it’s not even been made by or for them.

It’s made by Filofax but the design reminded me of the Aviary stamp set in the catalogue.

I can see now that this is a set I am going to now have to add to my stash, I have so many ideas for it!  It’s amazing where you can find inspiration.

I also decided that I also needed a note book.  A while ago hubby brought home some A5 ring bound books.  They have a ton of ruled pages that are just great for making lots of notes in.  But in true crafting style, I needed to pretty it up!

Now I have a fair bit of crafting loveliness in my craft room.  Lots of new exciting stuff to use.  But I decided to reach for some retired papers to cover the book.  You see the one thing that I love with Stampin’ Up!., product is that you can go back to it again and again.  And especially the fact that all the colours match so perfectly, you know that you’ll always have something to match that's current.  So Stampin’ Up!., really doesn’t go out of style!

And I even covered the inside of the cover…

So from plain old boring book to fabulous Everyday Enchantment Notes. These gorgeous Saleabration papers from last year are still looking good today!  Although I am thinking I may just make another in the papers from this years Saleabration set!  Watch this space!

Happy crafting!
