new books!

I was finally able (and movtivated) to finish these two books I've been working on FOREVER.

I tried something new this time and rounded the corners of my bags. I guess it looks cute, but I don't think I'll do it again. It was an experiment! It wouldn't stay closed so I added red ribbons to the sides. I think it makes it look more Christmas-y, like a little present! I didn't use a traditional cardinal red/hunter green color scheme in this book. My inspiration for the whole thing was this one piece of paper from basic grey's dasher line. I love the olive green, pale blue and pinks-not your regular Christmas stuff! :)

The second book is a girly one-yay! For some reason I was imagining pictures of a girl who is in 2nd or 3rd grade going in it...I don't know any 2nd or 3rd graders so I'm not sure why! It's got three spots for journaling and little bits of sparkle here and there. Not too girly, just enough!


  1. These are so PRETTY!! I love not "tradional" color schemes for Christmas too!
