'Ladies Diary' mini album..............

This was made using the left overs of paper from the clock with the addition of card to make the pages, it has tags in pockets on each page and they can be used for journalling and small photographs, it measures about 4 1/2 x 6 inches, I have to say i really enjoy making these albums - I've yet to keep one tho' as this one is going with the clock into the shop window - soon i'll make one for me!!

Fit for a Lady!

I really love the Graphic 45 papers and after thinking long and hard about decorating this Tando clock I realised that the 'Ladies Diary' papers were just right and here it is a clock fit for a lady!! ( my mother always said i'd never be a LADY!!) I used 3 12x12 papers and from the leftovers another album will appear - hopefully.

Just a note...............

Just a note to say - I've been published!!! The shop was asked to do a project in a crafting magazine and I was given the job - it was to create 4 cards using a six petal punch so after an initial panic I created and even managed to include some steampunk - I've put a pic of the magazine in the sidebar.

Using up the leftovers................

When I made the Graphic 45 'Oddities' album I had quite a few leftovers so after watching a few Youtube videos on how to make an album from scratch I produced this ' Old Curiousity Shoppe ' mini album, (another first for me), it is around 6 x 4 inches with six pages, that's 12 sides plus both sides of the front and back cover to decorate with pockets and tags for memo's and photo's! a glutton for punishment that's me!! but I really enjoyed doing it and am planning my next one.What am I going to do with it - give it away for a crafty charity raffle this weekend - I promised so I can't change my mind - can I ??

Come Fly with me..............

I've used the Tando Hot Air balloon kit to make this wall hanging and used my favourite nuetral shades to give it a vintage look, now this one I did put together with a workshop in mind, I think the sentiment is from Indigo Blu or is it Creative Expressions??? well one or the other!
I'm entering this into the Tando august challenge - the theme is Travel.
