Wow! look at this, two posts in less than two weeks! Have I got my blogging mojo back????
I don't know about you, but whenever I have lots to do there is always something else I'd like to try. Recently inspiration has been popping up at odd times! Yesterday, my inspiration led me to my recently made Travelers Notebook. I say made, it's actually a bit of a work in progress and I am adapting it as I go along. I will share my notebook with you soon once I have a little more in it. Until then I would love to show you an insert I made.
I created an insert to wrap around one of my books. I wanted extra pockets. I decided to use a lovely pad of paper from First Editions called 'Isabelle' ( an old pad now unfortunately)
The patterns are so beautiful and full of pinks, greens and browns. This particular paper had lots of white so I thought I would use heat embossing to decorate it. You can see the difference here between the areas that I have decorated and those I have left.
This experiment led me to have another go and produce a video tutorial for you all. So I do hope you enjoy it.
I have also created a video on my Facebook page on how to use the same techniques to enhance your lettering! To watch it click here.
I am expecting supplies this week and I will have a couple of kits available to buy so you can try this at home. I can also sell the items individually.
Total kit price is £25 (£30rrp so a fab saving!) postage is £3
