Hold on tight to your dreams…

Hi Everyone..

I altered three wee notebooks today..

I bought these a while back at Stampers Grove, they are great to alter and I also got to use that new kraft and black paper pad that I had bought from the Range last month.

I kept them very simple, they are a great size for sticking in your handbag/purse so didn’t want to embelish them too much

notebooks 2

I cut the paper to size which was 2.5″ x 4″

notebooks 3

then inked all round the edges of the books and the patterned paper in black archival ink

notebooks 4

I applied scortape all round the reverse side of the patterned paper and stuck to the front and back pages of the books

notebooks 5

Then I finished them off with some Tim Holtz small talk stickers

notebooks 6

A nice quick and easy project for a sunday morning 🙂

As always thank you for popping round

Hi Everyone!

A warm welcome to Blogmas Day 18!

I absolutely LOVE today’s wee project, it is a great idea for a last minute gift or stocking stuffer…

All you need is an inexpensive picture frame, give it a wee lick of paint, add a photo and embelish the front and you have a lovely gift to give just in time for christmas..

I have a few of these wooden frames, I got mine at Stampers Grove, I have a couple left over for future projects… and you don’t even need to paint them you could use a varnish or wood stain and keep it natural

Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms

Hi Everyone…

Welcome to Blogmas Day 16

Today’s project is a Winter Reindeer Coat of Arms made from a reindeer head I bought in stampers grove and the plaque is cut from a cat food box 🙂

The reindeer looked like this before I started

I took out some mod podge matte and some Papermania decopatch papers

paper-mache-paper

I painted the whole thing with white gesso as a base coat so that the papers would pop when they were glued once they covered the entire reindeer head.

The base of the head was covered in clear glitter, and I stuck some glittery snowballs on the sides pf the plaque, it was finished off with a wooden snowflake dipped in versamark ink and a coat of white encrusted embossing powder applied and when melted I sprinkled some iridescent glitter over top to make it sparkle..

and finally the reindeer was centred and stuck down onto the plaque and it’s done.
