Ghost Willow.....

Hey everyone, Emma here...

Well today I have another Christmas gift I have been working on.....a fancy notebook. I am addicted to making these at the minute, I already have quite a few made for Christmas and Birthday gifts!!
I LOVE using the 'Bind-it-All' machine to make them and all I use to fill them is some cheapo coloured paper...

....My papers are a bit of a mix: Bo Bunny and K&Co, all the edges have been distressed, glittered and machine stitched.  The gorgeous lace and flowers are from Hobbycraft, seam binding is from the market and that beautiful pink ribbon is from Fred Aldous which we are lucky to have here in Manchester... pearls and buttons are from stash...

....I have used the very GORGEOUS 'Ghost Willow' from the 'Lil Haunts' collection designed by Christina Dee and available from Tickled Pink Stamps, which are now also available in rubber.  I have watercoloured her with Distress Inks in sepia tones which I am loving just as much as colouring in black and white which you all know I am addicted to hehehe!!!!...

...The ticket I made from a Tim Holtz stamp set, which I totally LOVE!!!

Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments you all leave me....
