Chunky Polaroid Wallet

I made another polaroid photo wallet this morning for my doggy pictures of Chunky.


I used black card stock for the base which I got as a multi pack from Simon Says Stamp,it is their own brand..

The patterned paper is from Glitz Designs, and has a slightly edgy grungy feel to it


I bought some wood shapes and alphas when I was over at Stampers Grove on Saturday, love these, and will pick some more up when I visit again next weekend, I inked them up with onyx black ink, but it wouldn’t dry so I covered it with a layer of stampin up crystal effects, which is the same as glossy accents.


I filled it with my mini polaroid snaps which measure 2″ X 3 1/4″


it is a perfect size to pop into your purse/handbag and you can adapt them for virtually anything… grandchildren, cats, gardening, friends and family snaps 🙂


I have one more of these to make and I will be sure to provide all the measurements for you, I ran out of time today,

As always, thanks for popping round and I will see you next week.

Lena Broom 8 x 8 Layout

When I was out walking the dogs yesterday, I took my camera with me and snapped a few pictures, I took the picture below because the colours of the flowers were just gorgeous..

It belongs to the Broom Family and this variety is knows as Lena Broom

Sooo… I headed up to the workshop tonight, not knowing really what to make… I had it in my mind that I wanted to try doing a layout of a tree that I had taken a picture of on the same walk… and printed it out (below) and also printed out the Lena Broom whilst I was at it.

Now…I think I will still do a layout with this photograph, but that’s for  another day… once I compared both photographs I decided to go with the Lena Broom 🙂

I just love the orange, peach, raspberry and creams  in these beautiful flowers 🙂
