As a prolific note maker and chronic doodler I have an appreciation for all things stationery. I decided to experiment with designing then embossing some really nice plain PU covered notebooks the other week.
It took me ages to find the right notebooks to do this with - I am quite fussy on the quality - but these were pretty perfect as they have matching coloured covers, place ribbon and elastic closures. Also the paper quality is great for doodling, note taking or journal entries.
Using kettle copper and white embossing powder, my aim was to keep the designs simple, cheerful and classy.
Ive started to sell these glitzy notebooks on my eBay shop and the feedback has been really positive from some happy customers -
'I just wanted to let you know that I'm so happy with this book. I've been looking for one for ages, but most seemed childish and wouldn't fit it purpose. When I saw this I knew straight away it was the right one. Simple, yet pretty and nothing like anything i'd seen previously. It looks amazing and it's very "me" haha.'
I'm on the look out for some more things to glitz up, emboss, design and decorate ... any ideas give me a shout!
