Christmas Gifts

Well all the cards are done so that just leaves me to finish off some of the gifts I've been making.

So far, I have made a few notebooks and some diaries.


These are some of the notebooks.

I know I've used retired Designer Series Paper but I just loved the Tea for Two and First Edition DSP so much that I couldn't resist using up some of my stash. I brought the notebooks back from the USA because I couldn't find any here that didn't have a spiral binding on. These are actually what they call college notebooks which means that the line spacing is more like what we are used to here in the UK. If you get the school notebooks the line spacing is much wider.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp sets : Feels Good

Ink : Island Indigo and Early Espresso
Card stock : Island Indigo, Early Espresso, So Saffron and Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper (both retired) : Tea for Two (can be found in the Clearance Rack) and First Edition
Accessories : 2-1/2" Circle and 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punches,  Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Delicate Doilies Lace Tape, Chevron Border Punch, Basic Rhinestones and Stampin' Trimmer

I've also been covering some diaries that I bought from the local discount store. I've made two in each of the colours below.



These are quite large desk diaries. Personally, I've found that this year's desk diary has seen a lot of use. Don't get me wrong, I'm not adverse to keeping my diary on my phone but I have found that the paper one suits me better for when it comes to keeping notes for classes and customer requests. I'm going to be really cheeky and will be keeping one for myself to use next year. The rest are being given as gifts.
