Pretty notebooks and handwriting fonts...



What else is there to do on a rainy bank holiday Monday but clear out your craft room.  In the process I  unearthed a pile of digi patterned papers, so rather than hoard them I made some pretty notebooks.


The papers were mainly pastel colours so could easily be used for notebook pages.
For a bit of added interest I die cut a flower in the centre of each cover and added a small tag and a stamped greeting.   I'll pop each one inside a glassine bag and tie with a pretty ribbon and they'll be ready to give as gifts.


I also had a go at designing my own handwriting font, thanks to Helen over at It's All Fiddle Fart.  If you've never visited, it's a blog full of tips, tricks and nifty makes, well worth a visit. Last week Helen shared a link to a website MyScriptfont.com where you can design your own font in a matter of minutes.
