3 hour album

I wanted to make a mini album for xmas and as time is going by so quickly i set myself a challenge to make one in 3 hours or less and here is what i came up with i used my minds eye the merry days of christmas scrapbooking kit, some snowman embellishments, stampin up real red cardstock, tim holtz distress inks and basic grey journaling stamp.


i have wanted to buy k and co [cut and paste and lotus tea box, que sera sera stamps] for a while now so i treated myself with my wages from my new job i adore all the papers that k and co do so i am going to try and colect as much as possible as next year my goal is to make more hand made gifts and cards for my family and friends!

i have been a bad girl

sorry for neglecting my blog but uni is crazy and i now have a job aswell so i think it's gonna get worse b4 it gets any better as they say,but anyway i went to my craft meeting today and had a whale of a time we stamped on candles and made robins and xmas puds out of punches will post photos tomorrow when i have better light.

i have also been so busy making xmas gifts 4 family and friends but i made time to copy kwerners sketchbook idea which i love here's what i came up with....i love this idea because you don't always have a piece of paper handy but if you do and you are like me you then loose all the bits of paper!!! i'll be back tomorrow with photos of my class and some other goodies i have been making.
happy crafting!!!

just a quick one!

i have been raiding the cd roms to make another batch of cards to sell before christmas so i have made some popcorn bear birthday cards. I have had alot of requests for men's cards so i am making sure i make more of them this time but i can't remember seeing many men's cards about perhaps that's why i have been asked for so many?

also i have playing around with the toilet roll album idea i have seen on youtube and i love it!!! it's great for small occasions and we all have them in the house and it's good to recycle and you can use your scraps because it's a small area to cover fab fab fab great for halloween which is my next one!
Hope you all have had a fab weekend and stayed warm [as it's getting nippy in the air ] happy crafting thanks for stopping by!
