Fun with Paper

I'm trying to quickly write this post tonight before I dash to band rehearsal because I won't be available at all this weekend. I'm working the next three days which is awesome to have some work.

So don't expect any craft unless I manage something on the train.


I did manage something today though. I found an awesome journal tutorial over at A Beautiful Mess. I love their stuff but can't usually be bothered making it because I have to go out and buy a pile of stuff. This time though I had everything that was needed since I seem to collect random scrap book papers because they are so pretty and colourful and will come in handy one day.

 This one is my favourite with all the pretty butterflies that I had to cut out. Awesome colours too. Bits of purple thrown in there for fun :D

 The other reason I had to make these is I'm meant to take a notebook tomorrow so I decided that if I have to take one I may as well take a pretty one.

 You can see here how I made them. They aren't the neatest but I don't mind. They're mine and I love them.

So Happy Crafting everyone I will see you after a crazy weekend.

Wow, this is so cool! I purposely set today aside as a nothing-day, so I'm going to try to make a few of these. I'm not sure they'll be as classy as yours, since I have a lot of fluffy nonsense stickers built up for crafts, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes! Thank you for the link!
