SMALL YET PERFECTLY FORMED JOURNALS...

In the middle of tv preparations for Monday, and a very early start.  We will be on our merry way to Peterborough at 5.15am - aaaagh.  The products are up now on the TV Schedule (12 and 4pm) - https://www.hochanda.com/TvSchedule#031218 - exciting, and we are raring to go.  At least we will be by the time I've packed the makes, demo boxes, meals, coffee and suchlike.  Many of the makes are much bigger than usual, and an absolute feast for the eyes!  Please don't miss!

Now my small but perfectly formed images for this evening begin with this teeny tiny little tickets junk journal by Helen Chilton.  All held together by a large paperclip.  Which reminds me you will see another use for a large, very pretty paperclip on Monday too. 
Helen's mini journal cover ......


Followed by the pages inside...








Very cute!

Sandra also made an adorable little shabby chic journal recently.....








.....Filled with CI stamps, images and more.  I also had another beauty of a mini journal to show you by Flo, but that's going in an issue of Creative Stamping soon, which will also have some of our stamps gifted with it too - certainly one to look out for!  Which reminds me we also have projects in the new issue of Craft Stamper as well I believe, although I haven't seen a copy yet.

I also started a new junk journal a few weeks ago, which was the main theme for our weekend of Art, Stamp and Play.  Still lots of pages to fill inside, but here are a sample of the beginnings.....




Keep a lookout because you will also see this journal in it's entirety on Hochanda on Monday too.  All will be revealed soon.  I do so love the latest A4 background papers used in this, I'm even making rather lovely Christmas cards using them as well.

Will you be watching?  Do leave a comment, we love reading your comments!

Back soon,

The two shows were great Jean and I think the fabric pieces seemed to go down really well. Your journal is looking fabulous and I like Helens too. I enjoyed making mine and will try to do more journaling if I can next year. It’s something that’s quite new to me but it is a great way of showcasing lots of different stamps and papers. I’m pleased that the shows went well for you. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
