Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today
With November coming to an end, I think it’s time to think of Christmas presents, especially if you intend making them yourselves. And so today I have a girly diary to share.
As the little lady, who will be writing her secrets in this notebook, likes purples, I chose to work with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection with a bit of the Vintage Spring Basics set, which offered both cold and warm shades of purple, paired with browns and greens too. And so I adapted the same palette for the diary. I layered some papers on the front cover:
…added a ribbon bow and a butterfly charm on the wire:
…and decorated the front with a stamped and hand-coloured image:
On the inner cover, I added the girl’s monogram in a decorative heart on the background of the butterfly and plaid patterns:
There’s also a bonus stamped image at the back of the diary:
…and a little envelope to put in special secrets
I hope the girl would like her secret diary
And here’s what I used to make it:
Papers: Ska Vi Ta En Fika?: Nybakat, Chaite, Mandelkaka, Lejas café; Vintage Spring Basics: 11th of April BS, 9th of April BS. Other: stamps: Magnolia, Basic Grey; ribbon, twine: Rayher, charm, plate: my stash.
Have you started making your Christmas gifts yet?
