Italian Inspired...


Pretty and practical, these matchbook style pocket books fit perfectly in your handbag, tote, or coat pocket. And with twenty pages of acid free paper they are a lovely booklet for sketching an idea or jotting down a note.

Espresso Bean


This first series of note books are Italian inspired with patterns, textures, and motifs reminiscent of the renaissance, medieval Rome, glazed stucco, ancient gardens, and frescoed walls.

Ancient Gardens


Venetian reds, soft pink stucco of Baroque villas, patina greens of ancient Italian gardens, Amalfi coastal blues, opulent gilded golds, Tuscan sunflower yellows, rich espressos, and the creamy shades of Carrera marble are some of the monochromatic colour schemes I have chosen for this collection.

Amalfi Coast


Each is made using recycled commercial wall covering samples as the cover stock. As an interior designer I have access to some fabulous products and when they are discontinued, I get to keep them! These elegant wall papers are so durable you can even wipe them clean with a damp cloth if your latte should spill on the cover.

Botticelli Rose


Both the inside and outside cover are finished with the pretty paper. Inside the front cover there is a small embellished pocket filled with five two inch square notes ~ just the right size to pen a phone number. The booklets are bound with a coordinating ribbon tied in a bow and a delicate scalloped edge is hand cut along one edge of the booklet where it folds over and “locks” shut with a Velcro dot.

Carrera Marble

They make wonderful brides gifts, hostess gifts, party favors, and amenities for an overnight guest.

If you have any special requests, I am happy to work with you in selecting colours, patterns of paper, or personalizing ~ just let me know. I have a vast collection of these papers right now ~ while they last!
