Spice Cake Address Book and Note Pad Holder

Here are the other 2 handmade projects i donated to the Surrey International Writers Conference.

The first project is an Address book. Remember this Post? I loved the way my first address book turned out so i thought i'd give it another try using some different products and this is what i came up with.

Like the journal i glimmered the leaves with Shimmer Champagne Mist but unfortunelty you can't see any glimmer in the photos.

The second project is a note pad holder. I also did this project awhile ago and thought i'd do another one. If you missed the first note pad holder i designed click here to have a quick peek at it.

The spice cake line is all the rage right now!! To be honest i wasn't a big fan of it unitl it arrived on my doorstep!! I eagerly opened the package and after one quick look at all the designs in person i fell in love with it. I love working with new colours and when i say new colours i mean colours that i'd never think of putting together.. pool party and more mustard? who knew they would look so good together??
