Managed another page this morning. They don't normally get made this fast but this album of my parents old photos is being done again after it was ruined in the fire, I managed to take photos before it was thrown away, so the layouts are similar but the products are new. Today I have used two of my new journal stamps from Hero Arts, bought from Stampman, I love journalling stamps and have to confess I have collected quite a few! The actual journalling is not finished as I have to check with my mum that I have the names right. The little pearls on the corners of the vellum cover the glue and are also in the centre of the flowers. The metal charm is a butterfly which in the picture looks like binoculars!!!

Got to go food shopping this afternoon, which will make the shoulder bad so wont be doing any more crafting today.

This page has been sat on my desk for a few days waiting for inspiration to strike to finish it, which came this morning in the form of a free stamp on the Craft Stamper. The black ones have been embossed with clear powder on black to match the handmade frames around the pictures which does not show up too well on the photo. The chipbard frame has been inked with Distress Inks and sprayed with Gold Blonde Moments Pearl Pigments. Another one for the album only 15 more to go.

My latest scrapbook pages. I am making a Heritage Book of photos from Johns family. These 3 pages are all of his Dad as a child. I have used Tim Holtz papers for the bases along with stamps and chipboard and fragments and bits of stuff really. I like to keep my pages simple, bit like me - lol

Had a busy day today mounting stamps from Elusive Images onto EZ mount - a job I hate, love the stamps, hate the sticky scissors, and then stamping all images onto card to put through the laminator for filing, so made this little card in between each stage to keep me sane.

Craft Room

Hey, this is me, thought I had better get an up to date photo to use for all these blogs I am going to be following, so here I am in my garden, the part that is not over run with huge weeds and grass. Its also the first picture I have with my hair long, I love it, my mum hates it!!!
These two are of my craft area, we bought a new freezer today, bigger than the one we had before the fire, so the utility room has had to be reorganised and I took the bookcase, don't think his lordship will notice! So have had a quick re arrange on the desk and voila.

A card made mixing new and old, Hero Arts stamps and Tim Holtz Distress Inks combined with decoupage and pricking.
The above is a picture of a wall plaque bought from a shop in Keighley, and here is the finished result after I altered it for my Hairdressers 40th birthday gift to put up in her salon, which is pink and black.

My very first attempt at blogging following some very patient instructions from my pal Janet. Thank you. I have done it at last !!!!!!
