I do love using paper that has a white background, seems to make anything on the front pop.

Take Some Notes…

Just Β a quick post tonight with a little project to share that I have worked on and off over the last 2 days, there is a lot of different layers in this altered A5 notebook.

There are layers of gesso, paint, texture paste, embossing, enamel embossing, gilding, and dry brushing..

Like how it looks, and has also given me an idea for Christmas! Β  I think this would look fab with snowflakes all over it, keeping the same colour scheme etc.. I just need to remember to make one nearer the time πŸ˜‰ .

Retirement Wishes Book

I was asked to make a retirement card for someone at work who is leaving at the end of June… and I thought rather than making a “big” card, I would do something a wee bit different and make a retirement book, where there will be loads of space for everyone to write a wee message πŸ™‚

retirement book

The book measures 6″ x 4″ .. and I will be making a card stock envelope/box for it tomorrow evening, with the We r memory keepers envelope punch board, so if you are around at 7pm GMT i will be over on Ustream making it live.

Supplies List:-

  • 2 x pieces of 6 x 4 greyboard/chipboard
  • 1 x sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper
  • Chipboard Letters
  • Promarker or Copic Markers to colour the letters – I used Peach Promarker
  • Bind it All Machine
  • Pink half inch Β “O” Wire
  • Vintage Cream cardstocky paper for the inside (it is thicker than paper but thinner than cardstock) πŸ˜‰
  • Stampin up dimensional adhesive
  • Scortape – lots of πŸ™‚

retirement book
