oh you pretty things.....





Yesterday I spent about half an hour cutting all dies out using my cuttlebug but then had nowhere to put them! Found some stackable ikea boxes that I bought ages ago and decided to alter the box to keep my die cut shapes in



I was in Asda last night and bought a card magazine purely for these lovely papers








I have covered this notebook that I bought for £1 with the papers and added some flowers etc and thought it would make a nice present for my mum for mums day soon.





The papers are so nice that I decided to cover this little notebook too...you can never have too many notebooks! Think I need to make some pretty cards for mums day next!

I almost bought that magazine for the papers too. But I have way too many as it is. I do love how you have used them. And the decorated box is lovely too.
