Family Roots

Fran has some blog candy up for's to make something, other than a bog standard card using a stamped image. At the moment, I'm desperately trying to make a book for my Sister's 50th birthday and I've finally got around to making the actual book and cover. The inside will have photos of Gt Grandparents, Grandparents, etc., so thought I would enter the book as it is at the moment.

I've used 8" x 8" covers and pages and put the book together with my Bind It All. The paper is from K & Co., and the stamped images are Magnolia's Tilda with a watering can and the winter tree. These have been coloured with watercolours and Brushables. The flowers are from Poppicrafts and the brads, metal "Family" label and sticky "Roots" letters are from my stash.

I love making books and have made quite a few recently, however, now have to do the inside of this one - 20+ pages!!!

Off out again today, but hope to load something else later.

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!


Here's the last of my Christmas makes...

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.

The bag was a little rushed to say the least!
