Same Project, Completely Different Look!

Hello Happy Crafters!

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE it when you send or share photos of my projects, especially when you switch up and use a different paper collection? I love seeing how it changes the whole vibe of the project.

I recently got a bunch of photos for two different projects of mine and thought I’d share them with you for some inspiration!

First up is my latest Brand Ambassador project that comes with a free video tutorial. This is the Drop In Card.

Okay, so here are just a few photos of my version, using Graphic 45’s lovely Fairie Dust collection.

Now, check out how it looks using Graphic 45’s Master Detective (and a few Hallowe’en in  Wonderland) papers, Looks like a whole new project!

Isn’t that great? I love it!! Thank you Vera Collier for sharing your amazing results! I’m so glad you had fun with this.

Then I was thrilled to see Anne Schilling sharing her version of my recent Graphic 45 Traveler’s Notebook project. I used the bright and cheerful Lost in Paradise collection.

Anne went a completely different direction with hers, using Stamperia’s steampunk themed Voyages Fantastiques collection. Check it out!!

Stunning, isn’t it? Thank you so much, Anne, for allowing me to share your fabulous results. I have this collection and now I’m itching to play with it!

I hope this has given you some inspiration to look at my projects in a whole new way!

And if it has, PLEASE share your photos! You can email them to me at or share them on Instagram @minibooksrme or @donnakauffman  (I won’t share here without your permission!)

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Happy crafting!

  1. Donna, I bought your directions for the Travelers Notebook and am dying to get this beauty done. I’ve cut most of the paper but can’t seem to lay my hands on a Travelers Notebook. Graphic 45 is all sold out. Do you know where I ccan get one?

    • Isn’t it just mind-bending sometimes how different just using a different set of papers can make a project look? I love it!! I’m so glad you’re finding inspiration with my projects. Thank you for all the kind words!


  3. Such great projects and great variations. My sister and I did work on our books in Maine and I will be sending you photos. They aren’t quite completed as we will both be adding things as we put the pics in them but I am SO in love with the format and the look of the By The Sea papers and your cutting and assembling tutorial.
