5 x 7 Mini Album

Hi Everyone!..

I have a mini album to share with you today, i made this for an upcoming workshop at Stampers Grove which takes place next Saturday 25th February..

So if you fancy joining us for a few hours, I will leave the booking details at the bottom of this post.

I have literally just finished making this and I have not had a chance to decorate the front cover yet.. it is hot off the press 😉


I think i am going to start making another one tomorrow.. they are time consuming but very rewarding and  lot of fun if you like methodical crafting


It has a magnetic strip closure, and it works really well considering the volume of content in the mini book


I love this old paper line called Sycamore Street from stampin up…

Would I have done anything different when creating this… yes, I think I will ink the edges next time 😉


If you would like to come along and make one you can call James or Emma to book a space on 0131 221 9440 or pop into 92 Grove St, Edinburgh EH3 8AF

As always, thank for popping round.. see you again soon

Poofy Flowers

Thanks to a tutorial over on Dawn McVey’s Blog, Ive been making some of her “Poofy Flowers” they’re so easy to make and I love them, Here’s the link to her You Tube Video Tutorial

The first one is made with valentine paper that I’ve had for at least a couple of years and the edges brushed with chalk ink, a clear basic grey button added to the centre with a bit of Pearsall’s Marabou Silk.

This greed and red flower was made using a Daisy Bucket Paper dotty on one side and striped on the other, a large green button fixed with a glue dot and the same floss silk as the pink flower above.

With the next flower I used white polkadot vellum, and I mixed some violet perfect pearls with some water in a mini mister and spritzed it all over, then I squeezed some stickles onto my finger and brushed it around the edges, the centre is just a blue/purple button with a silver pearl on top.

This is a picture of the 4 that I made all together… then I got thinking and made a tiny 1.5cm one and adhered it to a tiny peg, I got the idea from last night’s post on felt flower embelishments

A tiny Poofy Flower Peg Embelishment 🙂 I love it
