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

On Ustream Tonight…..

On Ustream tonight I made the following bits and bobs, I feel a lot better about the upcoming live crop next weekend now that I have spent all day faffing around on Ustream πŸ™‚

There was one guest viewing the channel, no idea who it was but it was nice to know someone was watching and keeping me company

First up, I cut out some stars, (I really need to get a star punch!) then covered them in gold glass glitter..

Then I made a little 4″ x 3″ sticker Thank You card and matching 1″ x 1″ gift tag … Ideal if you need to say thank you to a fireman for rescuing your cat!

I also made a matching tag, to go along with the card, ideal for attaching to a gift

Next up I made a 3″ x 3″ shabby chic Love You Card, it’s made from the same Β leftover papers as the card above.

I used some of the lovely seam bindings that arrived today…

Then to finish the night off I made a “You’re the Cats Meow” Notepad

It’s been one really busy and productive day in the workshop… normal service to resume tomorrow lol πŸ˜‰

Remember that gardening paper stack, journalling spots and rub-ons I bought the other week half price.. well they were in amongst a pile of stuff I brought down from the workshop… so I decided to make a notepad with them today πŸ™‚ Β  I will be keeping the rest of them to make a gardening mini next year to record all the stuff I grow πŸ™‚

  • Born to Shop “Go Green” A5 Patterned Paper & Glitter Transfer Stickers
