Thoughtful Studio and the Tess-a-Penpal Collection

With my 30 before 30 goals in mind, I knew that I really wanted to make time to scrapbook or create more. Scrapbooking is a skill I’ve always admired but not dedicated much time to learning. I spend a lot of time worrying about the little things and one of the biggest decisions I have made this year is to work on stopping that. Don’t stress the small stuff – just go for what you want. Taking that approach, I decided to make two decisions. One was to scrapbook more – just to stick things down and go for it. The other is that I dared to apply for a design team. A team with beautiful individuals creating together. I am so pleased to announce that I got accepted. I am super excited to be among the first Thoughtful Studio design team, bringing creations with the new Tess-a-Penpal collection to you all!  To continue with the challenge, I’ll be attempting to do some digital scrapbooking as well as physical over the coming months!Thoughtful Studio - New Adventures Scrapbook Layout

DIY Gift Card Holder

It’s Christmas Eve! I cannot believe we’re almost at the end of Blogmas 2019 – or that I have made it this far! But we still have a couple of posts left and some more before the New Year so let’s just jump right in. If you have not already managed to get a gift for someone, then a gift card is probably the easiest thing to get now! A lot of stores offer instant codes that are emailed to you or the recipient. Today, we’ll be looking at how to make a quick and easy DIY gift card holder for the occasion – or any occasion, really.

Gift idea: Selfcare Box

I had an absolute blast making my Secret Santa gift for my colleague in the recent weeks. It was pretty obvious that she got it from me – it took her seconds to guess. So I guess I’m okay posting this up now! However, I just wanted to share the gift with you as it was so much fun to make. I might actually make myself one – and perhaps some others for other people. Presenting the selfcare box!

Selfcare Box

This year, I opted to make a self-care box for the recipient. The budget was only £10 so I definitely had to get a little creative. It is possible to purchase some premade self-care boxes for slightly more. I personally love the Blurt boxes but they are double the price (they are definitely worth it though). Since I was trying very hard to stick to the budget, I ended up making a bunch of things myself.

My December Daily Pages

The other day I mentioned that I am taking part in December Daily and how I prepared for it. Since then, I have made a few pages for the album and I wanted to share three of them with you. These are all really easy to replicate for any album, which is why I chose them. So without further ado, let’s just jump right in.

I found a few printable christmas cards that I wanted to share with you today, in case you needed to whip up a last minute card.
