Mini Book of Quotes

Happy Tuesday !

I made this little mini book especially for my very first blog post over on the Indigoblu Blog {{ click here}} to see it.

Mini Book of Quotes 4

The book is quite easy to put together, I made the basic book (un-embelished) in around 30 mins … the completed book around the 2 hour mark

I used a hitch fastener as a closure, to it is pretty robust and perfect addition to your handbag/purse

It’s pretty dinky and measures 2.5″ x 1/2″ x 3″ …it would even fit in the back pocket of your jeans!

You don’t have to use it as a quote book, it would make a perfect address book, photo album, you could even put all the numbers of your fav take-outs in it to but a few !

Indigoblu Challange #20 Sketch : Don’t Worry Be Happy

Hi Everyone!

It is time for another new challenge over on at the Indigoblu Challenge Blog, this month the theme is a sketch.     I had so much fun creating this 7″ x 7″ megaflaked card   :-)

My card this month is fairly easy to make and comes together quite quickly, it uses two stamps, a sentiment stamp and also the lollipop tree stamp, along with some of the gorgeous Indigoblu Megaflakes in Morris Dance and Chariot of Fire.

Gilding Flakes and Sea Glass

Hi Everyone…

A thought popped into my head tonight……..!

I wonder if I can apply Megaflakes to seaglass?

One way to find out….. and off to my shed I trot!

I have to say…I loved the effect :)

I picked a nice piece of light aqua glass and applied some around the edges, then took the snowflake lace stamp from Indigoblu and stamped over top and applied more winter dawn flakes.. it’s so pretty <3

seaglass 2

 

Then I picked clear and green seaglass and applied the Morris dance megaflake… it’s really pretty too :-)

 

Seaglass and megaflake
