Spell Book

I hope you had a great Christmas! I have my entry for Lili of the Valley's December Challenge to share with you today. You had to make Anything But A Card which was new for me because I haven't really branched out from cards before now, but I loved doing something a bit different. I decided to decorate a kraft journal in the style of a spell book using 'Abracadabra!'. I love the magic theme and this was one of the first stamps I bought from LOTV. So here it is:

I made some tattered stars using cheesecloth and hemp twine - I think this looks a bit like cobwebs!

I attached seam binding inside which ties into bow when the journal is closed.

I made the edges of the pages look a bit older with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Products used:
Papers - Kaisercraft and My Mind's Eye
Chipboard Letters
Kraft card
Cheesecloth, Seam Binding, Hemp Twine, Wizard's Hat charm - all from the Ribbon Girl
Stickles (Black Diamond)
Distress Ink (Walnut Stain)
Tiny wooden stars - Studio Calico

I'm really new to colouring and have a long way to go, but I'm hoping to work on this a lot in 2014! I hope you like my Spell Book - I think I'll be making more things like this in the future.

Thanks for looking,



  1. This is such a fun project and I love those stars. By the way your colouring is perfect.
