Today I am introducing the very first Shiny Happy Art A5 sketchbook covers that have ever been available for sale. The students on my recent Norfolk trip received sketchbooks with covers like these as a special gift – and they were a big hit!

My favourite design of that batch was a very bright floral so I painted another artwork in that style and had it printed onto some lovely thick vinyl. I have handsewn a batch of just 16 to be available for today, Day 6 of #shinyhappy7. 

These covers will fit most A5 size sketchbooks or notebooks and especially the mixed media journal from X-Press It that I love. The cover measures 33x22cm (13×9”) when laid out flat and the flaps are 6cm (2.25”) so even ‘slightly smaller than A5’ books won’t fall out.  

I like to use mine on my current sketchbook, and when I fill that book, it goes on my shelf, and I swap the cover over onto a new sketchbook! It protects it, makes the book a bit more weatherproof, and simply makes me smile when I use it!

Postage will be charged separately via PayPal prior to dispatch.

Please remember this listing is for the COVER ONLY, and does not include the sketchbook. That way you can choose to fill it with a book with paper that YOU like and the cover can also be used for notebooks or diaries – it’s a long lasting gift with lots of applications. 

I hope you like it too. Please remember these are handmade by me so there are limited numbers 🙂
