Flower & Fibre Experiment

Oh how I love my fibres, and whilst making tonights card, I sat thinking of different ways to incorporate them into my crafting…

So I thought I would try and adhere the fibre to prima flower petals to see how it looked… they are a bit different, but I kinda like them… in fact I absolutely LOVE the green one 🙂

Supplies used :-

  • Prima e.line flowers
  • Glossy Accents
  • Fibres
  • Prima e.line gems and pearls

Yum! – The Nook & Pantry Mini Book

I have some exciting news…..I won some blog candy over at the A Card 4 U blog and it arrived on Hogmanay,  now I’ve never dabbled in mini books or albums or scrapbooking, I usually just stick to cards or I’ll make decorations or try my hand at altered things like notepads…

I pondered over the idea for a couple of days and last night I took the bull by the horns and locked myself away in my workshop, the snow was falling heavily outside and was lovely to watch, and got stuck into making my very first mini book.

I had the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry Collection, so in order for everything to match and co-ordinate I made a little recipe book.

It’s almost finished, I’m just waiting on some D rings to arrive in the mail and i’ll be able to assemble it, but thought i’d do the blog post in the meantime 🙂

Soo… here it is 🙂

Say Thank You… (with a big green flower)

I’ve been playing around tonight using nestabilities and acetate…

How much static do these cuttlebug’s create when your doing the nestabilities!! it must be that tanning mat that causes all that friction… It’s just sooo fiddley, trying to get it out from between the plates!!

I made this Normal sized card tonight, measurements and supplies list below : -)  You’ll have to excuse the lighting in the photographs, it’s nightime and the lighting in the workshop is not that great, but the 2nd picture does the vibrant colours justice.
