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.

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.
