A warm thank you plus a big shop and YouTube update

When I reached a 1000 followers on Instagram last weekend I just was a bit lost for words. It means so much to me. This community of paper lovers, journal makers – you are all such wonderful people. Always supporting each other, sending love and positivity.

  • I wrecked my brain to think of a way to celebrate… when it hit me: I have so many things in store! That is a huge celebration so let me quickly share what’s to come:
  • a series of 4 videos with envelope and journal card projects on YouTube
  • 2! new kits are in the shop – one free and one is only $1
  • 4! new journaling kits are all ready and come to the store in the next 8 weeks. Some will be free check my Instagram posts for the details
  • 1 more kit is almost done
  • I’m working on a Christmas special kit. I’m hoping to get that done by the end of the month
  • more freebies are floating in my computer space I just need to catch them so I can surprise you with them

So… does that count as a celebration? Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all your support and kind wonderful messages about my creative undertakings

Here is the post I made on Instagram, so you can see pictures of all the things that are in store. Scroll down for some more on all the upcoming goodies

2 new kits in the shop

The last couple of weeks I have been creating a lot. After the creative dust had settled down I came out with as many as 5 brand new beautiful bundles. Two of them are now in the shop. Let me tell you a little bit more about those two.

1: The Embellishments On The Coin Envelope is a freebie

A small bundle that is so versatile. Lovely words, small phrases and of course butterflies There is also a template with instruction to make a coin envelope. The four gorgeous nature images with all those butterflies is from a vintage book, published on Flickr by th Biodiversity Heritage Library. Just click the image to check out the freebie!

2: The Basic Papers Set volume 1 – gorgeous neutral vintagy papers

While is was crafting myself, decorating pages in my journal, it occurred to me that I could use some pretty papers that are sort of neutral. To serve as a background for collages and things like that. Using several pretty patterns, combined with a neutral, vintage colour scheme, I created a Basic Papers Bundle. And yes, there are more like these to come… that’s why this is Volume 1.

I don’t want you to break the bank to be able to buy this one, so it is only $1… Click the image to get your bundle today!

New 10 minute projects on YouTube

With that template of the coin envelope, combined with one of the sentiments of the freebie – The Embellishments on the Coin Envelope – I created this beauty. I’ve filmed the process, so that is a cute, quick & easy 10 minute project for you to follow along.

And what about this pretty one? An envelope made with one of the beautiful papers from the β€œThere is Music in the Papers” bundle, combined with the two cute girls from my freebie β€œThe Grandparents In The Pictureβ€œ. This one is a little longer, so I think this is a nice one as a weekend project

The last video I would like to share with you is one where I filmed a flip through of a finished journal. This beauty has now arrived at her new home with one of my Instagram followers. Sit back and enjoy the lovely pages! I hope it will bring you some inspriation for your own journals.

So that is all of the good news Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet, warm, kind messages & comments. It really means a lot to me.

Love, Maureen
