Hey there! It’s Sabrina with a how-to video tutorial for you today. This month’s kits have some really gorgeous patterned papers, don’t you agree?! In previous times, I may have set those papers aside to admire and never used them at all. Such a shame! These simple to make jotter notebooks allow me to use up the papers in the kits while admiring them up close a while longer.

I used a variety of products and tried to keep the embellishing to a minimum. The stamps in this month’s kits are just beckoning you to get started on a new project – I had to use them on the cover of one notebook as a little reminder.

The binding is saddle stitched by hand, but it would be even easier to use your sewing machine or simply pierce a couple of staples down the center seam.

Add solid copy paper, square grid paper or lined paper inside – whatever will be most useful to you. And if you need a great way to keep these jotter notebooks altogether, I’ll be sharing more about the Midori-style planner I made with the kits (ç recent #planneraddict convert here) during the monthly inspiration hop on the 15th.

 

Here is a quick video on how to put these notebooks together.

 

 

Supplies: March Main Kit, Main Add-On, Life Pages, Bits & Pieces

Thank to all of you that played along. It was a pleasure reading all about your favorite February memory. My son was sweet enough to randomly pick a number between 1 and 168 and he picked 21! So, without further ado, the winner of Gossamer Blue’s February Life Pages kit goes to…

My favorite time was spent with my granddaughter feeding the ducks at a nearby pond. She would throw out one.nugget.at.a.time and it took forever… It was so darn cute though, I was smiling all day.

CONGRATULATIONS Gina M! Please contact email your mailing address to fujiwife4@gmail.com to receive your prize winnings!
Cheers and happy weekend everyone!

Hi Gossamer Blue fans. Today I’d share a cute grid layout using small photos and chipboard stickers mainly from February kits.

First I arranged small photos on the left side of background paper.

Then I added small patterns from February life pages cards.

Next I attached chipboard stickers and white stiches for details but kept some white space.
