Nestie Book

Post by cb on Tue 7 Feb 2012 - 17:42

Lorraine gave me the instructions for the Nestie book she made, so althoughIi've only got 2 dies (and they are not nesties) I had a go at this a few weeks ago. The plan was to make one for Mum for Christmas but never got round to it-

That's lovely, Cath - never mind that you've only got 2 dies to fit!

Smashing Cath. I'm sure you'll get more dies soon though, lol.

I had to make more pages for my 2nd book the other day. I made 6 and still need another 2!!!

Looks like a good excuse to acquire more dies now! Like that pretty paper.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

Very pretty cover Cath. I don't have many either and just have them in a box but this does make storage better.

The cover is 7 1/2 inches and the pages are 6 1/2 Patty. Tutorial will be good Lorraine. Did struggle a bit but sussed it in the end.
When I went to one of the demos at the garden centre a few weeks ago a lady was showing the case she had bought for her dies (a new one you might have seen) and I was thinking how much nicer a handmade one is.
