Something different...

 Now and then I treat myself to a crafting magazine and like most of us I make my mind up by the free gift which comes with it.  Well I fell in love with the free paper pad and stamps that came with Septembers issue 147 of Cardmaking and Papercraft.

As soon as I got home I just had to have a play !!

The papers are by BoBunny called "Isabella",  just love the soft greys and pink. You also get a cute butterfly, crown and sentiment stamp.

As you can see I have stamped the butterfly several times on different papers and then fussy cut them out to decorate the egde of my shaped card. Distressed the edges and added a few gems to finish off.

I wasn't going to waste my bits of paper left over from the card so made this simple little book with them also using the fab stamps to decorate inside !!  

Going to be handy to keep all my sign in names and numbers in !!

Brilliant makes that little book using all your leftovers, so inspiring. What did you use to bind it with? I bought that mag too, was a great buy. Hope you're well & having a good week.

What fabulous makes Diane, I wish inspiration hit me like that - I'm struggling at the moment to get creative. I have this paper pad and thought it funny when you said the magazine was chosen for the freebie on the front - I thought I was the only person who did that, lol. I'm looking at it now with renewed enthusiasm after seeing your gorgeous card and mini book. Thanks for the inspiration.

These are both brilliant projects Diane - I really love the little book! My papers and stamps are still sat in their packaging ... hanging head in shame!
Hope all is well with you.
