🌺 Introducing Forget-Me-Not Fridays!

Hey there Reader Welcome to my new weekly email series: Forget-Me-Not Fridays! Every Friday, I'm going to dig into my archives (videos, blog posts, photos, projects, etc) and share one simple idea for you to try over the weekend. It could be a new tag idea or a different spin on how to make clusters. I might even share an easy notebook or cover idea. Whatever I can think of really! The best bit? You can dig through the emails whenever you need inspiration. So even if you don't have time right...

Hey there Reader I hope you're doing well? Here in the UK, it's officially the first day of summer and the sun is positively bursting through the windows! So, I thought we could do with a bright and happy idea today, which is where these quick and easy collaged journal cards come in. All you need are some pretty backgrounds (cardstock scraps are perfect for this), book pages and fussy cuts. And hey presto! You have some lovely journal cards that would happily suit most themes. Here's my...

Hey there Reader I hope you didn't miss me too much last week? As I mentioned on my Facebook page, I'd had one too many glasses of wine on the Thursday night, so a "Forget-Me-Not Friday" email the next day just wasn't to be. But here we are... another week, another idea. This time, I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and remind you all about one of the very first tutorial videos I ever made: faux specimen cards made from playing cards, washi tape and a few other supplies you probably...

Hey there Reader Happy Friday! You know what that means... I have another Forget-Me-Not Friday idea for you! This week's idea is Junk Mail Envelope Pockets with Side Tucks (inspired by Dee Dee Farago's 3 in 15 challenge). Don't you just love how you can make so many different things out of simple supplies like junk mail envelopes and scraps? I also remember umming and ahhing about adding the lace and eyelash trim at the time. I ended up loving how soft and textural it made them. Here's my...

Hey there Reader Can you believe it's been exactly 3 months since I started my Forget-Me-Not Friday email series? How time flies... If you're new around here, you can see all my previous emails here. Now... onto this week's idea: Junk Mail Envelope Pockets with Policy Closures! I made these for my first Edith Holden folios a couple of years ago and I still adore them today. The best bit? You don't need much to make them - just some window envelopes, scraps, fussy cuts, brads and string. Check...

Hey there Reader I'm back with another Forget-Me-Not Friday idea! I'm also back from my trip to Madeira with my husband (we had a lovely time even if we did miss the Northern Lights making their appearance back home lol) Anyway, this week, I thought I'd change things up a bit. In this series so far, I've shared various ideas for embellishments and ephemera. But I've been feeling a little nostalgic about some of my earlier journal covers, which involved having fun with patchwork... First up...

Hey there Reader I'm back with another Forget-Me-Not Friday idea! I was umming and ahhing what to share with you this week and I finally settled on this project from a couple of years ago: Over The Page Tuck Spots 3 Ways! I used junk mail for mine, but you could use any paper for the base - digitals, book pages, scrapbook paper, etc. And then it's just a case of playing around with the paper to fold it in different ways to make the pockets. Super simple - but they look really effective I...

Hey there Reader And welcome back to another Forget-Me-Not Friday 🌺 Who fancies a super relaxing crafty session this week? I know I do! I've always found making clusters really relaxing - especially fabric ones because of how soft and textural they are. So... that's what this week's idea is. A couple of years ago, I had a go at making some fabric clusters using wax seals instead of buttons (I also used buttons for some bonus ones at the end of the video) and I loved how they all turned out....

Hey there Reader Welcome back to another Forget-Me-Not Friday email! This week, I've been feeling the love for fairies. And it got me thinking about one of my most popular journals from a couple of years ago, which looked like this: (full flip through here if you've not seen it) One of my favourite pages inside that journal was inspired by this video from my friend Mandy at SunflowersAndDors. Following her video, I created a fun flip-up pocket for my journal, which I embellished to make it...

Hey there Reader Happy Friday! Can you believe we're already halfway through April? I'm actually writing this week's email a few days ahead because my husband and I are whisking our dog away to Devon for a few days. Here's the cute cottage we'll be staying in. I'm so excited! But I won't get into all that just now because you're here to see this week's Forget-Me-Not Friday idea, which is... DIY Junk Journal Charms Using Circle Punches! I made these just over a year ago and although there are...
