Notebook Cover and Postcards Embellished

I headed for Blue Door Beads — I just love the name and, yes, they have a blue door — this morning to find something special for the closure on the notebook cover just completed. I think I found just the right thing (click on image for larger view):

I had fun choosing the fabric for inside flaps

and the photo image on the inside cover of the notebook is from an old issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine.

Here are 3 of the postcards that are embellished and ready to address and finish edges.

While I was completing the above project I decided to make use of a Mola that my sister gave me recently. (If you aren’t familiar with the origins of the Mola, be sure to visit the link above!) This one is particularly lovely and deserves to be useful.

I think Christy will be pleased that this lovely Mola is not going to languish in my stash.

    Your notebook covers are wonderful, the Mola is beautiful. You have given me the inspiration to get out the one I have had in my stash for years and make something useful with it!!

      I loved the beads. The shop I go to gets very small amounts of new ones in all the time. So the selection is good and they are unique. I thought the ones found for the Mola were spot on.

      Thank you Heather! They are fun to make and easy to personalize, as you point out. I have a few more selections of fabrics and ideas on my table already.

    I love them all but especially the Mola. It languished for so long in my stash that I had forgotten its significance in my life. Thanks again for your generous spirit.
