I loved doing these projects for Cardmaking and Papercraft. I think it could be my favourite commission yet. The brief was to make Christmas gifts using the technique of gold leafing. I've not really used gold leaf before but I'm now a complete convert. It's super easy to use and gives a luxurious effect.
I always get a buzz when my projects make the front cover of a magazine.
Here's the notebook and matching bookmark which would make a great Christmas gift and as such I'm entering it into the challenge at:

The step by step was on the frame. This one I'm entering into the challenge at:

To finish off the set I made a matching greeting card. This one I'm entering into the challenge at:
