I think I may have watched every video on Youtube (possible?).
I cam across Marion Smith Designs and fell totally in love with her shabby chic styles and printables. I have printed a few of her collections and they never seize to amaze me. My first Marion Smith project was this mini pocket mini album/journal. It is the size of an ATC, with tons of little lined, and decorated pages and file folder pages. I think I now have a file folder obsession ;)
And yes, I have learned how to do the COPTIC stitch! I love it and it looks so authentic (as it should...lol) It is a very easy technique to learn and she teaches you how to do it on her website here.
