I’m excited to finally share with you what I’ve been working on for weeks! Each year for Christmas, I love to give my direct reports (those who have signed up to my team directly with me) a small gift as a token of my appreciation to them and to hopefully convey that I value them and they are important to me.
Earlier this year, I made up some little books (in kits) as part of a youth retreat where the kids made the books and used them for the weekend. They were such a hit! So I’ve taken that idea and expanded upon it.
I made eight different designs:
Each book has 4-5 tabs down the side on varying pages as dividers within the book.
This book is made with the Pretty Petals Stack, a set of 6×6 papers. Rather than cut them down, I let these books be bigger. The 16 or so pages inside are a mixture of printed papers and coordinating cardstock.
You’ll notice a number of Sneak Peeks on the books, like the words and enamel dots on the above.
The Farmer’s Market papers are SO rich and yummy – I could use this wood print all day long!
Do you notice the cool leaf die cut? Yes that’s coming in a few weeks and is a “must”!
The Go Wild Stack is another 6×6 one and very popular.
Second most popular was this book, made with the English Garden paper series. Notice the Sneak Peek Blushing Bride Glimmer paper here, as well as the sentiment stamps.
This book is another 6×6 made with the Cherry on Top series. These papers are generally seen as a birthday set, but you can see here that they can also be quite general.
The Bohemian books turned out to be one of my personal favorites. Whilst the prints are a bit bright for my style, I do love the colour combination here!!
I just kept playing with it.
Sugar would like to think she helped. She did keep us company though.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this very long post! It was fun to make these and I look forward to sharing another team gift with my direct team members next year. xxx
