It’s CASEing the Catty blog hop time again! This week we’re showcasing some projects CASEd from the Mother’s Day section of the Occasions Catalogue. I found this week a little challenging as there are only 3 projects to choose from! I haven’t bought any of the related stamp sets either but that always makes things just a little more interesting.
I try not to buy gifts for Mother’s Day and I prefer my little ones to make me something. I think it’s all about investing your efforts into creating something that shows you appreciate and love someone, whether that is craft, baking, gardening etc. Frankly one of the best presents I can get is when I don’t have to cook dinner! So I went about decorating a notebook. I used the design from the card below and changed up just about everything except the sketch.
I started with my favourite piece of DSP from the All Abloom paper stack and used those colours to dictate the rest. I used a strip of Pistachio Pudding washi tape down the spine side of the notebook and then added a Mossy Meadow ribbon. I wanted to personalise the notebook and used the Sophisticated Serifs monogram letter J with the hostess set Hello There decorative circle frame stamp.
A simple but useful gift that I created myself.
Now pop on over to see what the lovely Nikki Sadler has created!
Happy Mother’s Day!
