Craft Fair Idea: Mini Notebook Cover & Pen Holder

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  I have wanted to make a notebook and pen with this paper ever since I first got it. I love the idea of have pens on the front of a notebook.

Measurements and Materials


  • I used a small note pad that I bought from Wilkinsons in the UK it measures 4" x 3 1/4"
  • I bought the pen in a pack of 5 from Trago Mills but I have seen mini pens in B&M, The Range & Home Bargains at different times. I buy when I see them basically!

    • Score on Long side @ 3 3/8" - 3 3/4" - 4 1/8" - 4 1/2"

    Facebook Live Replay 13th Nov: Very Versailles Shabby Chic Card

    Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


    Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well. Today I am sharing the Facebook Live crafting I did on my birthday last week. I made a Shabby Chic card using the lovely Very Versailles from Stampin' Up! I have loved this set since first seeing the catalogue and bough it for my self as a birthday present! I also bought a brand new phone stand to make my videos and I think there was a smoother transition from face on to face down. I think it is nice to put a face to the voice and hands don't you?

    I am so glad I have sorted how I can see comments while broadcasting live, it was so nice to have suggestions while I was crafting and be able to follow them. Thank you to everyone who joined me live. Hope to see you again on Wednesday. I will be later in the afternoon again as I am going out for Lunch with a friend :-) 


    Nigezza Creates Live with Stampin' Up! Very Versailles Shabby Chic Card

    Measurements and Materials

    • Card Base - Crumb Cake
      • 8 1/4" x 5  7/8" - Score @ 4 1/8"
      • 14.6cm x 21cm - Score @ 10.5cm
    • Scrap of Very Vanilla for stamping on
    • To help rip the cardstock in a controlled way use an aqua painter and wet where you want to rip
      • This makes the fibres weaker and easier to control where the rip is going
    • 3"x6" strip of DSP that was ripped to fit on card front
    • All ripped edges were distressed with ink and curled slightly


    Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)

      Wrapped In Plaid Reece's Mini Cups Treat Box

      Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


      Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  I have created another table top treat for Christmas, this time for 2 Reece's Mini Cups. I tried Reece's cups for the first time when we went on a family Christmas holiday to Orlando in Florida so we now associate them with Christmas. I just had to buy a big bag of these mini ones when I was on holiday in the summer. Ed does not like them but the kids & I do. I decided to make a treat that held 2 as 1 is just not enough! The Christmas Tree on the front holds the flap in place ...clever or what! 


      Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! Wrapped In Plaid , Perfectly Plaid & Reece's Mini Cups

      Measurements and Materials


      • Night Of Navy card stock 7 1/4" x 4"
        • Score on Long side @ 2 1/2" - 3 3/4" - 6 1/4"
        • Score on the Short side @ 3/4" from each end
