Seals…Fish and a bit of Happiness

I have 2 days off work YAY!

I spent a couple of hours this afternoon up in my workshop, I made some more things out of paper scraps for the challenge over at Your Paper Pantry the challenge finishes soon and I want to get the video done for it this weekend.

First I made this Seal and Fishes Notepad, the paper scrap that I used for this was from the DCWV 8 x 8 posies stack which has been lurking around in my scrap bag for a loooong time πŸ™‚ Β  Β This notepad would be great for kids

Then I put a flower together and finished it off… I’d won the Tiffany’s Chocolates Little Lindys Kit at christmas from Lindys Stamp Gang I used the moonshaddow mist stain on these flower petals, love the colour!

I then made a matching card and gift tag, again using scraps and offcuts of patterned paper and cardstock

There’s a mix of goodness in here

I absolutely love this Sizzix Tag die… I used some of the Papermania Rose Garden Paper, May Arts Ribbon Scrap and some leftover tuille from when I made Debs mini
