School supplies: notebooks

Hi! It's been a while since I last wrote in here, but I'm really busy with real-life stuff and I haven't felt like blogging.
As I told you on a previous post, I had been working on some school supplies printables for our dolls, and finally this week we found time to print them and take some photos. I tried to make them to match each doll style, so each one is unique. Here are Ghoulia's:
I forgot to tell you that we bought a 13 Wishes Howleen doll. I wanted to make a post all about her, but as I said before, I don't have much time. Of course, we made a notebook for her:
I made some of them using resourcest that I found on the internet, but I made other designs and patterns myself.
-Hey Cleo, would you help me with Mad Science?
We don't have the highest quality printer so some of the colours didn't come out very good. Operetta's notebook was supposed to be bright red, and Robecca's notebook pattern was brown instead of black, but it doesn't look that bad does it?
I also made a generic Monster High notebook design, based on a notebook showed in Monster High movie "Friday night frights".
I've got some more notebooks ready, even for dolls that I don't have yet (but I hope that I'll have in the future) . What do you think about this ones? I'd like to upload them somewhere so people would be able to download them, but I'm not sure how to do it. Any suggestions.

Blog to you soon

Sunday crafts & rastro finds

Hey ghouls, how are you doing?
Our sunday has been a great day full of crafting success and some cool finds for our dolls.
We went to the rastro (some kind of flea market) to find some cool fabrics to make stuff for our dolls and we found a market stall that had some old clothes 2 pieces for 1 €. That was such a bargain! We ended up buying 6 pieces of clothes for just 3 €.  
We also found and old Barbie motorbike for 5€. It's a little bit too big and needs a little bit of repaint and customization, but I think it will work.
Once we were done with our shopping, we went back home and started working on a new sceneario for our photos. As I told you on a previous post, I wanted to have a brick wall background, but I couldn't find any scrapbook paper or adesive paper that suited me, so I did my very own one using photoshop and some resources I found on the internet. Here it is
I made it smaller than our Scaris background because I want it to be like a wall in which our dolls can sit and chat. It still needs some changes, but I'm not sure of what to do. Once it's finished, I'll make a "how we did it" post. But right now it seems to work right
What are you doing there Operetta?
I hope I can blog to you soon, we've received a new ghoul and I want to share some pics with you.

New ghoul: Operetta

A new ghoul has just joined the gang: Dance Class Operetta! I went to the toy store in order to buy Ghoulia's deluxe fashion pack and I saw her there and I couldn't resist buying her. I love her rockabilly style and I'll think we'll enjoy taking photos of her a lot. See some of  her first pictures
