From Pukka pad to beautiful designer notebook

When I finished work yesterday I had to go with Abi  buy yet more stationery for school & being a paper crafter I am a sucker for stationery, I think I always have been as a little girl I loved being surrounded by paper & pencils & glue & scissors. I remember opening my Christmas stocking one year & finding a glue pen, but Father Christmas forgot to put any paper in my stocking, so I used the glue pen on all the pages of a comic magazine, my Mum was so cross.

From this
Well back to the story I came home in such a bad mood I decided to go straight up too my craft room until I calmed down, & decided to give my Pukka pad a makeover. If you are careful you can take the covers off the pad.
Using Bashful blue cardstock, Creamy caramel ink pad on the en francais background stamp all over the from cover. Then using Chocolate chip ink I stamped the Baroque Motifs swirl in two corners. Then with Pink Pixie I stamped the single flowers randomly around the swirl. On a spare piece of card I stamped the flowers again & punched them out with the Boho blossoms punch & popped them up with glue dots.
The A5 covers were held against the original covers & carefully lined up the holes on the Crop o dile, carefully I reconstructed the pad with its new covers & using the Bind it all I clamped the spiral spin back together, this can however be done by hand.
The ribbons tied around the spine Are bashful blue Striped Grosgrain & Taffeta ribbon on Bashful blue.

Sadly both of the ribbons are retiring, but one the happy side they are making way for lovely new stash.

I must say that is a lot of time. Where can I get a set of cheap pukka pads, I tried the Online places but they just have the normal ones not in white like the ones above?

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
