  1. What a wonderful is so very creative and lovely. I love these videos so much because I love watching your creative mind work. Thank you so much!

  2. What a fun looking project! I really like how you saw the books as journals — clever lady, you!!! My brain works too literally too many times!! Watching you create this accordion-type journal was exciting and inspiring to me. I’m thinking of doing something similar with a Christmas theme but with some of the blank tags that are collecting dust in my stash!! I’m looking forward to getting back to my “every day” journal once Christmas makes are done and using more of your collection. I have plans for some of the images!!!! I have to say that my absolute favorite image is the watch/clock face. I’m just totally fascinated and captivated by old clocks and clock faces. Love what you did with it in this project. Thank you so much for the video, Vicky. It came across to me how much fun you were having creating this project. It’s so adorable with some great ideas incorporated into it. (The die Marlene created to hide some of the ribbon is a brilliant idea!!) Thanks so much!

  3. Fabuloous zig zag journal Vicky. Tomorrow (01-12-2022) I will finally receive the last two stencils of the Happiness collection. They were sold out from the start! The other products I received earlier. I can only say, that you have done a great job designing this stunning collection!

  4. This video inspired me so much that I went into my craft room and stayed there for most of the day. I didn’t have this particular die however I did improvise with a single tag die I had in my stash. I made a lovely little journal for my daughter and her beautiful cat ‘Gomi”
