Hi everyone! At Sweet Shoppe it’s FREEBIES weekend, the yearly event where all designers add a freebie to the shop. Since I am bringing back Ex Libris to the shop this weekend, I thought it would be nice to make a coordinating freebie, you can grab it here.
I don’t always have time to read, but I do love it. If we go on vacation, I always go to the library to grab a few books, mostly fantasy and science-fiction. I’ve read some of the Harry Potter books, the whole Twilight series (and the books are better than the movies), the Vampire Chronicles and The Mayfair Witches series by Anne Rice, the Sookie Stackhouse series (the books from the True Blood series), Lord Of The Rings, the Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray (highly recommended!)… but also: The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown (and the book is WAY better than the movie), The Name Of The Rose by Umberto Ecco, and several other fantasy books.
If you love escaping in a book, if you read books to learn new skills, and if you are sad when you are reading the last page of a new book, then you will love this books and reading themed digital scrapbooking collection. Inspired by the love of reading and the irresistible charm of old books, “Ex Libris” will help you document all the excitement, adventure, and magic that a well-written book can bring. Remember that one book that changed your life, cherish the memory of that particular book that made you feel good… Grab a cup of tea, your favourite book and get lost!
