Mini Christmas Cards...

I so need to get started making some Christmas Cards, so when Tracy @ Dies to Die For sent me a set of The Greeting Farm stamps....I got cracking...

These are very small cards by Craftwork Cards and using one of the stamps from the Holiday Blessings set and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped out the background. I then took each of the other three stamps from the set and using the same ink stamped them onto Craftwork Cards Digital Cardstock. I coloured the images with Copics using R37/YG11/Y32/Y28 and added some Stickles to each image. I then mounted each image onto some scraps of red cardstock and added 3D foam pads to each one. I finished off each card with a little My Minds Eye Washi Tape (this came from Tracy but I cannot see it in the shop at the moment).

Here is a closer look of the one hiding in the picture above.
These stamps are a quick way to make your Christmas Cards...they are perfect for Kids to give to their school friends.

And there's more...

I just cannot seem to stop myself making these Daybook... 

For this one I dug out the Bo Bunny Mamarazzi papers...I just love the camera these of these papers....I am a self confessed Camera addict....I have 4 cameras, plus the camera on my iPhone....
 This time I have made a cover using Craftwork Cards Ritzy cardstock in Ice Cream to which I have added some Hambly Studios camera overlay (remember if you like these overlays that Hambly are no longer in if you want them, buy them when you see them!) 
Inside the cover I added some Prima filmstrip decorative tape (had it for years) and added some "photo" inspired words with my Dymo.
 Here are pictures of the inside pages...
I have also added a couple of coin envelopes to the centre...
Hope you managed to make it through another Daybook....I promise there will be something different tomorrow and Thursday...and then another Daybook on Friday.

Georgia's Daybook

Honest to God, my 10 year old daughter Georgia is as hooked on making these Daybooks as I am...

The first one I made for her, but for this one, she chose her papers, cut them and decided on shapes, and sorted them out into an order she was happy with. All I did was cut the cover and find her a piece of Hambly of course I hand stitched it all for her.....

The cover is made from Bazzill Kraft cardstock, and all the papers are by WRMK. I am so proud of her making this cute book, I love the idea she had of sticking the coin envelope to one of the shorter pages at and angle...

A Girly Daybook...

Another day, another Daybook...but this time something a little "Girly"

The Daybook has been made with Bazzill Kraft cardstock and a piece of Hambly overlay. The papers are all by The Paper Company Girlfriends range. The book still needs more embellishment, but that can be done once photos are added. I have added some Prima tape that I have had for years...and the clip is from my lovely friend Peta in Australia which I believe came from Typo.

I have had a couple of comments from people interested in buying one of these Daybooks from me. If you are interested in any of the ones that I have made, drop me an email with email link is just to the right...

Not Another Daybook!!!!!

OK, so it is another Daybook...what can I say...I am hooked!


I made this one for Georgia as she wanted to make an album about our camping trip to Wales back in August. For this one we used some Hambly Acetate over the Bazzill Kraft cardstock. The papers inside are all Echo Park Sweet Summertime, the banner sticker that I used on the front and inside cover is from the sticker sheet that co-ordinates with the range. As you can see on this one I have handsewn the book using embroidery floss. I made the holes with a pricking tool and a foam mat. I really like this method, and the book seems to hold together well too.

I still have a couple more that I will show you over the weekend.

I also wanted to add a BIG Thank You to my followers....I was chuffed this week when I finally reached the 900 mark...and now I am at 902.....think I need to put together a fab giveaway when I reach 1000!
