Some Pins and a wee bit Emboss Resisting :-)

In the workshop today I have been having a play around, trying a wee bit of this and a wee bit of that πŸ˜€

Here are some of the things I’ve made:

A couple of Pins, nothing too fancy, plain and simple, just how I like it πŸ™‚ , these are the purple beads I got from the charity shop earlier on this year….

Did you notice the background they are resting on? Β  I made that today too πŸ™‚ a wee bit emboss resist with the holographic embossing powders I got on Thursday night…

I wondered what I could make with it, and came up with an idea, plus to use up scraps, another notepad lol…… but the blank papers inside are cold pressed watercolour papers, with a gorgeous texture… and of course those dinky wee roses are featured again πŸ™‚

Materials Used :~

  • K & Company Sea Glass Patterned Paper (scrap)
  • Rowney & Daler Cold Pressed Water Colour Paper
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China and Shabby Shutters
  • Papermania Holographic Embossing Powder

Seaglass & Roses Notepad…

I like to buy the cheap noteboooks from the supermarket and then give them a wee makeover πŸ™‚

They are inexpensive and once altered they make lovely gifts or even great stocking fillers for Christmas!

I made this one this afternoon, plus I have done a video tutorial, but it ran over the 15 minutes, so I need to learn how to edit videos or re-make it again πŸ˜€

Supplies List Used :-

  • Cheap Supermarket Notebook 207mm x 73mm
  • K & Co Seaglass Patterned Paper
  • 3 x Green tone Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Double Sided Tape
