Sneaky Peeks Pollyanna Pickering's

Hi all 

On Monday the wonderful Lynda Chapman will be on our create and craft screens with the fabulous Pollyanna Pickering's new dvd rom called Christmas moments. 
And I can honestly say that this is one dvd rom that you will want to get, here are the samples that I have made from the dvd rom too.
I must admit this boxed card is my absolute favourite one I have made, I put in a battery operated candle which changes colour really brings the image out which I printed out on printable velum.
I made this note book card as I think it's a good idea for making Xmas present ideas.
I just brought a note book and I decorated the front of it.
This is a fridge magnet which I thought was simple to do.
For some reason I love making calendars think a new addiction is forming.

There are brand new stamp sets too so come and watch Lynda on Monday 24th Aug on create & craft.
They re available to buy at 

Happy crafting

Instructions for pocket notebook

Good morning all,

As promised here is the instructions to make the pocket notebook as requested.

First of all take an A4 sheet of card

Cut it to 10 1/4" x 4 1/4" 

Then using a score board score at 8cm, 8.5cm, 17cm and 17.5cm

We have a shop called wilkinsons or Wilko for short and I buy their handy jotters they are only 18p each which are value for money.
And glue the back of the jotter and stick to the card.

And then decorate as you would like it. On this instruction I have used white card, if your printer can print on card then just print on both sides, like I have on my original note pad I made.

I printed on to the A4 card then I cut the size I required. 

Happy crafting everyone xx
