Thank you card with Basic Grey papers

Close up of 3D flower

Hi again!

I had a fab day on Saturday, but the day flew by too quickly. Everyone got most of their books completed and from what I hear they all put the finishing touches on at home that night :) Well Done!! I've just started to make the toilet roll book for the next class which is on Sat 14th November.

Mum asked me to make her a thank you card for the hotel which catered for her 'cousins' get together on Saturday night. They had a fantastic evening and the meal was excellent.

This card is made with Basic Grey Urban Couture papers and the flower is a Wendy Vecchi stamp (I love these stamps!) The sentiment is a Daisy Bucket stamp and I also used distress inks. The colours remind me of autumn :)

Thanks for looking x

A CD Mini Scrapbook Album

I'm having an all day Craft Class on Saturday (17th) to make this little CD book.
It's made by covering compact discs with paper and embellishing them. The holes are punched with a cropadile and the pages held together with book rings.

I have a couple of places left so if there are any crafters in Northern Ireland who would be interested in coming along, if you email me before Friday, at I can give you all the details :)

It's got lots of detail so should keep you busy! I've really enjoyed making it and I hope you will too.

The key is cut out of shrink plastic with a Sizzix die and melted down to size with a heat gun.

pages 1 and 2

pages 3 and 4 

Tag for inside pocket

pages 5 and 6

Inside Folder for hidden journaling and photo

pages 7 and 8 
Includes a little 3 page tag book in an acetate pocket

Back Cover with metal charm
Thanks for visiting today :)

Chipboard and Acetate Mini Scrapbook - Little Boy

Lots of photos! (sorry for the poor quality - it's a very dull and wet day today...)

The journaling inside

This little book is a record of all the things Caleb loved from birth to five and the title is 'A little boy's world'. I made it in January and love to look at it now and again. I'm amazed at the things I have forgotten about him (I'm glad now that I included extra journaling pages of his little quirks at each stage :)

The album is a Woodware Chipboard and Acetate book and the papers are Cosmo Cricket - Cogsmo. I made a box to keep it in and covered it with matching papers. Hope you like it :) xx

Neglecting my blog......

Hi again!
After all I said about keeping up to date with this blog, I have been later and later at updating my posts..... I'm sure you don't want to hear about ironing piling up and housework etc...... but seriously though I have been working on stuff but haven't anything finished yet to show. I've nearly finished the cd book for my next class so will post photos of that in the next few days.

This is a little card I made for mum and dad to give to my little great-niece (in April...I was digging through past photos and found it!)

I used some striped paper that came free with a magazine. The sentiment is printed on the computer and the duck is stamped on pink card and chalked then raised on foam pads. I added some pink grosgrain ribbon and punched 3 small hearts. Quick and easy!

Thanks for looking and I'll be back soon!
