Cupcakes, Carousels, Suite Sentiments and an Embellished Notebook!

Hello and welcome to my blog today! Today’s project follows on from yesterday’s card project where I shared a card that I had made especially for a new team member. And today’s project is an embellished notebook that I made as part of her welcome pack. These are fun and easy to do and I just love making them. And they’re useful as well. I mean, who doesn’t love a prettily decorated notebook?!



Don’t you just love the theme? The patterns, the colours, the font – ahh, they all bring back childhood memories of the wonder and excitement of the travelling circus. So I thought it was a fitting suite to use as a new demonstrator gift – I remember the excitement when I first joined!

I couldn’t decide on just one delicious colour for the sentiment, so I used three – YUM! I used markers in So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral.


Tip: After colouring images with markers, huff on the stamp. Your breath reactivates the ink so you get a clear image.


The large intricate font in this sentiment is perfect for this technique. Here’s a close-up:


This sentiment comes from the Suite Sentiments Stamp Set, which was a gift for attending OnStage last November. It coordinates with other stamp sets in the Occasions Catalogue and the wording of this particular sentiment was just perfect for this project.
