Extravaganza Part 2!

The afternoon of last weeks SU day with Stevie produced these 2 projects!

The book base is an SU 5x5 journal which is lovely quality. As part of our day we got a full pack of 6x6 Elegant Soiree papers too. They are lovely quality papers and fab designs, but double sided! It seems such a shame to stick one design down!

The inside and outside of the book are covered using the papers and matching cardstock. The afternoon stamp set was Just Believe (one of which seems to have turned up in the house - would you believe it?).

I never thought I would be tempted with the spiral border punch but now feel the need to make everyone notebooks for presents.

Some co-ordinating ribbons have been tied round the spirals and a little pen loop (apologies I didn't quite get round to putting paper in the pen to match too).

Then as my 3-course lunch was settling and I was getting tired I managed to rustle up a magnetic post-it holder.

This was based on a 6x6 card square, covered with matching cardstock then more of the lovely papers.

A stamped border in the middle was mounted on matching card which was edged using the scallop trim punch.

A little boho blossom punched in the corner with a designer filigree brad added to finish - not forgetting pen loop, magnetic strips on the back and holes to thread a bow through!

Quite a haul for a day I think with lots of ideas and some goodies to play with.


  1. Lovely projects Jill, the Just Believe stamp is set is lovely and is on my wish list.


  2. LOvely journal, and I love the colours, you had a busy day!

  3. Two more great projects - sounds like a really good day. I know what you mean about double sided paper - decisions, decisions and it is always a shame to hide one of the patterns.

  4. These look as good in photos as they did in real life. Absolutely love the colours.
