Something For Me!

Better day today! The rain has stopped and the sun is out - what a difference from yesterday.


Decided to make myself something last night......don't know why really, as I've got plenty to get on with for other people. Anyway, this was the end result.


I covered the book covers in MAMBI blue floral paper and lined the insides with a pale blue Bazzill c.s. More Bazzill c.s. was used for the front of the book and on the lighter piece, I stamped the words 'memories' and 'journals' from Tim Holtz, in Versamark so it gave a watermark effect. The image is Magnolia which was coloured with Brushables and layered onto Bazzill c.s. Flowers are Bazzill and Papermania, Ribbon is Papermania and Dovecraft and brads are from my craftbox. Sticky gems are from Papermania. Lettering was made with George and Basic Shapes on my Cricut. Finally, the book was put together with my Bind It All.

Hi, Jo,

I'm having a look at Wymouth bloggers' sites, and I really like your one!
On 9 January you wrote, "So, have decided that when the counter hits 2000, I will be offering some blog candy." Well, you better get a-making that candy, Jo, because the counter is at 1990!. Good one!
Where did you get that wonderful clock?

Thanks for your comment Tartanwonder! Don't worry, keeping a close eye on the counter! If you put your mouse over the clock, you can get the link to it.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
