First up for today's super dose of craft inspiration is this gorgeous pocket diary created by Sharon Ngoo! This is perfect the project for the new year! Sharon combined Place in Time papers with lots of fun embellishments to create this beautiful and functional craft! With some help from fabulous Scrapbook Adhesives products, creating a pocket diary like this is a breeze!

"This pocket diary is made from the 8X8" Place in Time paper pad - with each month's page folded in half and glued to the next month to form the book." -Sharon Ngoo

Next up is a splendid holiday creation by Clare Charvill! This incredible Nutcracker Sweet sleigh is the perfect piece of holiday home decor! It is amazing what you can create with some pretty papers, good adhesives and a great imagination! Here is what Clare had to say about the inspiration behind this festive work of art!

"I always like to have a table decoration for the Christmas Dinner table that has little presents in.  This year I decided to make a festive sleigh using papers and alphabet stickers from the Nutcracker Sweet collection.  Some of the details on the sleigh, the cut a-parts on the pillow boxes and the initials and names on the tags at the end of the ribbons have been attached using two sizes of 3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives.  These are great foam squares that can also be repositioned easily if needs be. This was a really fun and festive project to make, and I'm looking forward to seeing it on our Christmas dinner table down in Cornwall in a couple of weeks. " -Clare Charvill
