My Baby Album Pages





Well, it's been ages since I did any pages for my albums, so I thought I needed to do some catch up with the grandchildren. These are 3 of the pages that I have done for Tyra's album - i'm up to April 2008! still 2 more years of photos to go!

Organiser




Well this is my attempt at getting organised. I made these little storage drawers to keep my cut n dry in. I made the small one first, but then realised that it was too small, so I then used the same design to make a bigger one. Don't look to close! there are a couple of drawers that don't quite fit!
Just need to add a lable onto the front of the drawers to denote the colour used. Hopefully this will keep the mountain of bits where I can find them.

Distressed swap






These are the 3 pieces i created for the distressed swap on LOTS TO DO forum.
The first item is a plaque. I used distress inks to give some colour to the bottom layer and then stamped swirls around the edges. To get the background effect for the top layer I used Tim's technique of swiping distress ink over a craft sheet and then misting with water. I then just placed the card onto the wet ink and used a heat buddy to dry. when dry I splodged some crackle paint on the a small area and while still wet stamped into it. I added a distressed embossed embelishment in the corner.
The tags are made from using the background techniques from Tim's new book. They are a mix of dabber paint resist method and perfect pearl effects. I have not added any embellishments to them.
The last item is actually a small box. The backgrounds were made from using distress inks and then covering with gold perfect pearls, this gave it a glimmery shimmery effect. (the box is empty!)

altered clock


I have had this clock on the kitchen wall for years and it was begining to look a bit tired.
Originally it was a round clock with a chrome finish.
With a couple of 12 x12 pieces of card, the patience of a saint to cut the centres out, some distress inks and a dab or 2 of gold perfect pearls, it has been transformed.
I added the stamped image in the corner to remind me when I am chasing my tail in the mornings getting ready for work, that there is hope, even if it is only the pay cheque at the end of the month.

My Kitchen Project




These are the first 6 fat pages that I have made to boarder my kitchen (half way there with the wall painting!) they look fab against the terracotta piant.

It's going to be a long job to make enough to go around my Kitchen (about 40 at least) so if any one wants to make a few for me, I would be delighted :-)

A little box


I made this little box using some of my stroke only papers, I really love the effect. I used nesties to cut the top and bottom and some of lil sis's punches for the flowers. Lil sis has her eye on the box, so I guess I will give it to her later.

Another danglie


Here's another little danglie! on a bit of a role at the moment.
I have been trying to use stash that keeps getting put back, I have so many wonderful papers that never see the light of day after they have had a stroke!

It's Childish, Create Something







Had Beccy aka lil sis, come and stay with me for a week. Needed her help for inspiration as mine seemed to have dried up, along with the snow! My CA at work gave birth to her first child on 15th feb, so thought it a nice idea to make her a little something. I pinched the papers and the stamps from lil sis and she pinched the template for the booties from someome else!

She also made me enter some challenges!!!!!!!!!!! I've never done this before so please be gentle with me.
