Tuesday Tutorial with Our Guest Designer

"I started thinking about creating some kind of a resolution book in December last year. I love when things are well organized and planned and when I can write down the lists and "to do's" of really anything ;) and then cross them off my list! I wanted this 2014 book to be something pretty that will inspire me throughout the year to fulfill my resolutions and follow my dreams.

Today I'm sharing with you my creative process about how to make one!
The base page for the mini is an A4 (about 8.2 x 11.7'') folded in half to create a book, but you can use any size. 
Then you have to excuse me, because I'm really bad in measuring and I actually don't measure at all if I don't have to! So, please, take this video more as an inspiration or new idea than a strict step-by-step tutorial.


Here's the list of materials I've used:
-CTK January main kit (papers, sequins, washi tape)
-CTK January embellie kit (Studio Calico stickers, October Afternoon Tin Pins, orange self-adhesive stones)
-white cardstock
-white envelope
-white acrylic paint
-Lucia Barabas clear stamps
-machine stitching

I hope this inspires you to craft and create some pretty little book :)


  1. That is a great and inspiring way to keep our goals in mind. We do love the design and we are specially happy to see how your Dymo embosser is adding value to the creative process. Thank you for sharing! ^CP

  2. I love this idea, think I might even try it for myself for this year...x

  3. Such a great idea, not just for how to construct a mini, but the topic as well!

  4. This is a lovely project and thank you for sharing the video!
