Fuse It Fun Day- Teacher Gift

Happy Sunday scrappers! So glad you joined me for Fuse It Fun Day! I have been dying to make a Coptic bound book and the end of the school year presented me with the perfect excuse to get creating! I wanted to make my son’s teacher a gift, and a blank journal seemed rather appropriate!

The first thing I did was watch a bunch of youtube videos, if you search “Coptic bound book” there are tons of tutorials, careful, this is a¬†time suck, I got lost on youtube for a few hours!

Once I felt comfortable with the tutorials, I started my notebook. I picked out some paper from my stash. I still had so much of the Pink Paislee Switchboard collection, someone gifted me the paper pack a while back. So I wanted to use that up and it was perfect for this project. I made my signatures with printer paper and patterned paper. Then I wrapped my chipboard covers with more of the patterned papers.

I knew I wanted to add a special touch to this notebook, making it personalized from our family. So I created a shaker dashboard with my son’s school photo. I used the Wedding Bells sequin mix, and it added such a crisp clean pop to this shaker page! I love the white sequins and the silver stars, but the iridescent sequins take it over the top!

When I added the cover, I included the shaker page! It worked beautifully! I also added a few buttons to the spine, not over the top, just a few. I think next time I will add more charms and such, I really like how that looks! I love how this little notebook came out, and I can’t wait to make more of these books!

As always, be sure to save some money in the shop with this code!

Pastel notebook by Anna Sigga

Hi fellow lovers of all things sparkly and cute it’s Anna Sigga here today with a handy lil notebook!


I just adore the look of the Monshine Delight sequins and the stars from the Hearts on Fire set are just the perfect match!


Since I love anything pas telly I just knew these would be perfect with this Bokeh-inspired patterned paper and I immediately thought of a handy notebook.


To make this book as soft and delicate as possible I added the White Paper Doily, a crochet doily ( made by me) and a cute flair as the main focal point of the cover.


I still need to add a tiny bit of splatter and the Creameez in Marshmallow were just the touch I needed. And who can resist a lil pocket for a set of colorful tags? Of course I added the Small Glassine Bags as the finishing touch to the inside cover.


Have a great Friday all!
