Project Life Storage System

Hi all, hope you are all well.

This past weekend I have been busy completing more of my Project Life album.  I also felt I really needed somewhere to store all my cards and trinkets and had a look online.  But then I thought nnnaaaa! I will make one myself.  So I did.

 I used Couture collection by Graphic 45 and I love it.  I have also had a few folk ask if I could do a tutorial, so I did this too.

This is the back and side.

I used both the 12x12 and 8x8 paper pads and also did some fussy cutting to embellish it in front.

Here are a few photos with it under construction.

Lots of fun and I cant wait to order PL from Stampin' Up! when it hits the market.

Take care of you.

Project Life and Stampin' Up!

Just in case you haven't heard Becky Higgins and Stampin' Up! have partnered together, which I am delirious about.  The USA are ahead of us so they have samples and photos all over YouTube and Instagram, but alas us European demos are not allowed to even show a whiff of it until July 2nd.  Unfair, yes, frustrating, oh yes and discriminatory, big time!

So I have purchased another Project Life set from my LCS and made a few of my own filler cards.  Here is what I have done so far......

I used my Sizzix Eclips and Collage Art by DCWV to make these filler cards, sized approx. 3x4".

I hope you like what I have done so far.  I still have all the baby years to do so I will be posting more pages when they are completed.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend full of fun.  Take care of you.

Cleaning! It's Just a Dylusion!

A friend had a birthday this week and I made her this card using Distress Ink and Dylusions stamps.

Another friend saw this, thought it was wonderful and asked me to make her a similar project in purple.  She has supported me twice this past year hugely, completing work that I couldn't finish due to my difficulties with depression and subsequent time off sick.  So I made this for her.  She wasn't too happy at first taking it without any payment but eventually accepted that I was giving her it as a thankyou and a promise next time she pays, lol.

The washi tape is a variety from Tim Holtz and others from my stash.

I even wrapped it up using the same stamps.

I love the wrapping as much as the frame lol

Hope you like these as much as my friends have.


Old Style Writing Desk using Graphic 45

It's been a while since my last blog, this working full time for a living is just not on, lol.

My mums birthday was in April and I made her this.

The writing desk comes in a kit by Candy Box Crafts.  The paper is Couture by Graphic 45.  Mainly I used the 12x12 pad, but also used some from the 8x8 pad and 6x6 coordinating pad. 

My mum loves it so I am very happy.

Thanks for dropping by.
