Friday Freebie and a mini tutorial

 Hello friends,

Today I have a little project to share with you and a freebie as the title of this post would suggest.

The project is a little notebook, (roughly passport size) created with help of my latest collection on Etsy. This little notebook will become part of a larger journal I am working on. More on that at some later stage. To be honest, the freebie was created, because I wanted some more embellishments to go with the collection, so now you can enjoy them, whether you decide to get the collection or not 😄

The notebook cover was made with a little file folder that is part of the collection. I cut it out, sewed around the edges, folded it in half and then made some inside pages with the help of a mix of papers from the collection and some coffee dyed paper. I sewed them in with a simple 3 hole pamphlet stitch.
A double page with some of the elements that come with the collection and a pocket, which is the height of the pages, created with coffee dyed thicker (160gms) paper.
Another double page. Since putting this booklet together, I have toned down the music behind the roses, as I found it too harsh, so this paper in the collection is now slightly different...
Another pocket created with coffee dyed paper and decorated with some lace and one of the embellishments that comes with the collection.
And here a final page with another pocket made in a similar way, and one of the tags that fits inside.
And here finally is the freebie, like usual, if you want the high resolution version, please email me.
Sorry for this extra step, but the high res version is too large a file to upload here directly.
Well, that's it for now. Next week I will be back with some pages from the larger journal and a very different freebie. Meanwhile:.....
Happy crafting and stay safe

Absolut fabulous work as always from you Astrid. I love the soft tones to all the pages here and the roses makes it soooo romantic and roses and music has always been a great pair together and also here. You really managed to make it work so well together and it looks stunning.
Have a great week-end everyone and take good care outthere.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
