Blog Candy!

THIS POST WILL STAY AT THE TOP UNTIL MONDAY 19TH APRIL. 
SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS.

Recently I bought a couple of spare notebooks that I have decorated and am offering them as Blog Candy.

So if you would like the chance to win a pink notebook, you need to be a follower of my blog, leave me a comment and I will enter you into the draw. 

I will draw a winner on Monday 19th April, so you dont have long!

Up close for the finer details of the velvet flower with a gorgeous silver flower centre, from The Hobby House.



I also got these gorgeous flower charms from The Hobby House which I have tied on with ribbon.

Good Luck!

Pretty. Love how you've decorated the note book. Have to admit I've not decorated a Note Book yet. Must buy one and give it ago! I could draw my favourite sketches in it lol.

Thanks for some inspiration!

love this - really inspirational. I make lots of books with my Bind-it-all but never thought to cover a shop bought one. I may even make one myself as I have some of those papers.

Thanks for the chance to win it!

cathinka said...

Thanks for yet more inspiration, Julie- what a great way to create a personalised gift, and in these financially broke times, making these will really help my present/Thank you gift list!
Really appreciate the way you post so much- as I can't get out to the craft shows, you keep me in touch with what's 'on-trend', so I look at your blog daily. You put so much thought and effort into creating and communicating on your blog, and this 'project' sums it all up in a kind gift!- thanks for the chance to win it-

Linda said...

Hi Julie - what a lovely idea! I have a basketful of notebooks (used & undecorated) so I ought to take a leaf out of your book (pun! pun!) I wouldn't be without my notebooks as everything goes in them from my shopping lists, things to do, reminders, good books I need to make a note of, etc, etc. They're invaluable and I don't even throw them away - so you can imagine I even know what pressy I bought a friend 3 years ago! (Is that sad or organised?!?) Thanks for your (always) inspirational ideas! I can feel a notebook stamping moment comiing on!!!
Luv Linda

Hi Julie

Another gorgeous notebook. I love all the detail and the ribbons across the top. I am still a novice at all this so can I ask what you use to do your stitching. Is it a special craft sewing machine? Is it fiddly to do or is it quite simple? I must say the results are superb! Thanks alot!

Chris said...
