See the blog for entry details and rules.
This week we’re inspired by all things French! I decided to use my French General goodies (which I have, love, and have a teeny tendency to hoard!) and then I thought “why not translate my Christmas notes” into French and make a little notebook to keep in my purse with my present lists and such!
My how-to is pretty simple! I used the tag packaging, stitched it on, then stamped with my french script collage stamp, and decorated!
I love how it turned out! I sealed everything with some Perfect Paper Adhesive in matte finish so that things won’t fall off when I go out shopping to get the season kicked off!
I hope you join in the challenge too!
Before I go, I want to also encourage you to check out the Simon Says Stamp blog today! I am doing a special four part series on Holiday crafting fun over there. Today, I’ve got several projects featuring Hero Arts stamps! My favorites are these:
Of course – you really can’t go wrong! I love soooo many Hero Christmas and holiday stamps – you’ll see lots of “holiday hero” posts coming here soon!! In the meantime… I wish you a happy Monday.

Tres chic! I love this shabby little French notebook….
Lovely little notebook May, great idea and that basket is stunning. Great colours too, the gold embellishments work so well here. Tracy x
Love your little Christmas notebook, May. The stitching looks fantastic on the cover. I love Tim’s Papillion script stamp in the background! The little embellishments and the “mes notes noel” give such great dimension and finish to your cover! <3 Candy
Fabulous notebook May and a great idea! Love the embellishments you used and the pretty colours.
Gorgeous! What do you use for your stitching? Just a traditional sewing machine?
I love the look of it, but don’t have a sewing machine handy. I’ve seen the little ones, but don’t know if I want to invest in one. Such dilemmas! LOL!
What a delightful little book to organize your holiday!
Yummy soft blended background! Beautiful notebook!
Stunning notebook! Love soft colors and beautiful embellies! Fabulous! Hugs, Sandra
Tres gorgeous, May! 😉 I love the pretty embellishments you chose!
