Handmade with Love : Lulupu Challenge #42

I'm on the Lulupu blog today, with another challenge.

Challenge #42
A gift set for festivals
(like New Year e.g.- Card with matching box, gift bags with tags, Easel card and box, Altered notebook/matching stationary)
(You can find the general guidelines to challenges here)

And as always we have a prize too

I altered a notebook into a planner to give as a New Year gift for a very special person.
The original book had plain black covers. I pulled apart the ring, took off the pages and put it back together with 4 dividers in place. The front and back cover have also been altered. The photographs below are only of the dividers without the blank pages in between, so that its easier to capture both front and back of each divider.

Along with the book, included are a dozen journaling cards, a handful of embellishments, washi tape and a gel pen.
 Some of the inside pages have intentionally been left blank, so she can alter them the way she wants.
 The pages have been given a light coat of clear gesso so they can be painted on easily and the colour won't soak through.
Finally, here is the back cover and the front again. There is a layer of clear crackle paste through a stencil on both the front and back covers, but they aren't visible in the pic but add subtle texture when seen in real.
I'm so in love with thermal Coffee Break collection, this is my fourth project and I still can't put these papers down. I've used , papers, stickers and wooden embellishments from the Prima Coffee break collection and also their clear crackle medium and clear gesso.
The layout for the cover is inspired by the November BAP on the Prima blog
