I know its been a few days since I posted and I do apologise for that but I have been working on these gorgeous little pocket books!
A friend (thanks Vicki) shared what she had made with her Scor-pal and being that I got one recently I thought I just had to try her tutorial – and all it takes is one sheet of 12×12 and a dash of inspiration.
So I grabbed an old sheet of 12×12 and realised how easy these little books are I had to make some with our lovely new Designer Series papers!
This one uses the lovely Fall Flowers Papers and I’ve made it into a Mother’s Day Card which I will add some tags for myself and my girls to write on for mum and also pop in a few recent photo’s of us all.
Stamps: Wonderful Favourites, Baroque Motifs
Papers: Fall Flowers, Old Olive Cardstock, Soft Sky Cardstock
Inks: Old Olive, Versamark
Accessories: Stampamajig, Pretties Kit, Stitched In Colour Ribbons, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Ribbon Originals – Theatre, Bind it All & wires.
This one is done with the Spring Flowers Papers and would make a great gift for a friend. You could use it as an encouragement booklet with uplifting sayings or quotes and a little note to tell them why you appreciate them and their friendship – or just as an encouragement if they are going through a rough time or for no reason at all!

Now this one just has to be my favourite – its using the Berry Bliss papers and how could you go wrong with Pink & Brown??
Papers: Berry Bliss Designer Series Papers, Pretty In Pink Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Priceless, Simply Said, Beautiful Life, God’s Blessings, Be Happy, Garden Whimsy, Polka Dot & Paisley and Simply Said – it sound like alot of sets but most were for different sayings.

Accessories: Very Vanilla & Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin Pastels, Stampin Write Markers, Brads, Grosgrain Ribbon, Ribbon Originals – Theatre, Stampin Dimensionals, Sponge Daubers, Circle Punches
I just love this one – I’ve used the Berry Bliss with a combination of stamp sets and techniques. These books have 8 pockets so I’ve made 4 tags to pop inside so you will have one tag and one photo per double page opening.
I would just love to show you how to make these in a class and I know your mums or friends would just love them too!
So ring me today to arrange a date – quick Mother’s Day is only 8 days away!!
Dont have time for a class before Mother’s day? then contact me for details for a kit or a pre-made one.
