Birthday notebooks!

Hi crafters,
I've been meaning to make these gifts for ages and actually got round to it this week.
These are for my niece's who have their Birthdays on the same day (2 years apart) which is always a bit tricky! So I decided to decorate a notebook each for them.

I've used Saturated Canary images for them both and coloured them with my promarkers.  I struggled a bit with the hair,  need to practice a bit more I think lol. I added lace,  buttons,  flowers and pearls and a bit of glitter to the letters.
I hope they like them and at least they can use them instead of being kept in a drawer as a card would be!

I'd like to enter my creations in this week's Passion for Promarkers challenge which is ' Lots of layers'.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx 


  1. These are fab, Karen! Love all the layers and details and your colouring looks fine to me - though we are always our own worst critics!
    I'm trying to make some Christmas presents this year as it's all getting a bit expensive, especially when everybody has everything they need! I'm thinking of maybe doing a stall at one of the Christmas fairs/markets aswell, so am looking for easy never mind Google, Pinterest is my friend at the moment! Any ideas most welcome! Hugs, Lisa x
    See you tomorrow!

  2. Wonderful notebooks Karen. The SC images are coloured beautifully and I love your pretty embellishments and papers. They will definitely be a well received gift I'm sure. Thanks for joining in with our 'lots of layers' challenge at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x
