I get to post pictures first? This doesn't feel right to me... I'm always a last minute sort of person no matter how hard I try. Enough about me, on to the loveliness from StickerChic87!

Here's everything all together. She really matched my color loves well! I received not one, but 2 books off my list. I have read and reread pride and prejudice over and over but never had a copy of sense and sensibility or Northanger Abbey.


Perfect little embroidered bookmark


Fabric covered journal with one of my favorite inspirational quotes from my pinterest


The best and most amazing bag! I love the fabrics and colors and it is sturdy enough to handle library books!


Thank you Beth!!!

OH I love this package, StickerChic87!!  The colors you used for the bag and journal cover and bookmark are wonderful (I'm a lover of blue and purple too...and I see some of the beautiful journal cover fabric in the bag...) How did you get the quotation onto the journal cover--the writing looks so perfect?

Thanks guys! Im so glad you like everything Averia! I love that bag so much that I want to make one for myself. Those books were in my giveaway pile (I only read each once) because my husband got me one book with all her novels in it so we were getting rid of copies. So they were practically brand new-which worked out perfect!!

The quote on the journal cover- I just typed it into Wordpad in the font, size, and format that I wanted (I actually did it in one size font, entered down a bit, then pasted it again with the font bigger so I could pick which size I liked better). I took the fabric I wanted to print it on and ironed it on to freezer paper for stability. I loaded it into my printer (making sure it would print in the fabric, not freezer paper) and hit print. I was nervous that the fabric would get jammed, but it fed through fine with the freezer paper. Then you can just peel the paper off the fabric and sew/do what you please with it. Smiley
