Is it just me?????

I really don't like this new blog set up!!! - posted two pics and only one came up so here is the front of the inside page.

Back home and so cold!!

Well I'm home after two weeks cruising around the very hot Canary Islands and not forgetting a visit to the Azores, I place I never thought to visit way out in the Atlantic any way back to the cold cold UK! I haven't crafted yet as have to get all the washing done and holiday paraphenalia sorted so I'm posting something from before I went away -it's the first  page of the large album I'm making, it's a
flip over page and is held closed with a magnet, inside there are places for tags and photo mats, I've put in a couple of my collection of old photo's or cabinet cards as I think they are called in the US anyway that's one page down and about 17 to go!!

Playing with colour.........

These cards were inspired by an article in the latest Craft Stamper magazine, I loved the bright colours and decided to have a go, the stamps I've used are from Graphic 45 as well as odds and ends from my stash. - I'm really pleased with the results altho I think you must choose the colours of the inks carefully to avoid getting too dark a background

I mentioned I'd signed up for an Online workshop, it's with Clare Charvill to make a Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections album, there are 17 youtube videos to work thro' and I'm just coming to the end of no 3 so a finished album early next year hopefully!!! The album is made from scratch using chipboard and black card, it measures 7 1/2 x 9 3/4 and is 3 inches in thickness, there are 8 pages so that's 16 sides and inside front and back covers to decorate - It is turning out as it should and I'm loving it. I'm posting the photo of the front cover, lots of fussy cutting, punched flowers and stickles but really not gaudy.
