Big Post It Note Cover & Tutorial

Hi Everyone!..

I have another project to share with you today … a cover for a big post it note, I have Robyn to thank for putting this idea into my head yesterday at the Mini Album Workshop.

The cover I made yesterday for the workshop is the same but on a smaller scale, this is only 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″

The patterned paper is gorgeous .. I got this yesterday too it is Graphic45’s Safari Adventure.. I also made another mini album last night when I got home using this same paper line, and again it is a smaller scale mini, but I will share that with you next week.

If you would like to make one too, I have a video tutorial below, plus you can get the post it note blocks from Asda for £1.00 🙂

I hope you have had a great weekend and I will be back next week with more projects.

p.s. I will be at stampers grove this coming saturday and we will be making coffee sleeve books if you fancy popping along 😀

Hello everyone!

It’s Christmas Eve! … How did that fly in so fast, I just want to wish you all a very merry christmas and good health and best wishes for the new year.

I am so glad that I managed to keep up with Blogmas, it was quite the challenge, but I did enjoy it lots.

My final project is a curvy keepsake box and the die for this is from Stampin Up and the tag from Tim Holtz

I love the cardstock that I used it is by American Crafts .. I got it from TK Maxx last year and forgot I had it!

The box below and tag waiting to be put together once it is filled with chocolates

Blogmas Day 17

Hi everyone and welcome to Blogmas day 17…

Apologies in advance for the late posting today, It was my work’s Christmas party last night and I am loaded with a stinking cold,no hangover tho 😉

Today, I hauled myself up to my shed to get cracking with making my Christmas Cards for family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues ..

merry-christmas-a

I based it on a design I have already made but turned it into a 6×6 card, there is nothing better than recieving a good quality handmade card

So the card base measures 6″ x 6″ and the white inner layer is 4″ x 4″ then the dark grey layer is 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and the patterned paper is 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″

merry-christmas-b

I have a ton of stuff still to do and I am hoping to get it all done tomorrow, because I have not started my Christmas shopping yet and time is ticking on 😀

See you tomorrow!
