Each year we have a "Secret Santa" at work, and this year I decided to make a really unique gift for the person who's name I had picked. I knew that she's very fond of her grand daughter, so I printed a photograph onto an EQ printable sheet, added some fabrics in shades of cream and added some lace trimming and some vintage buttons. I used a tutorial by Rosslyn Mirrington (this is a free tutorial on her blog Bloom) although I used a selection of fabrics and trimmings and made it fit an A5 diary. The cover is removable, so at the end of 2015 the cover can be removed and a replacement put in...
...today was the day when the gifts were shared out, and my colleague was so pleased with it! Now every time she uses her diary she'll see her gorgeous little grand-daughter.
