Shabby Sunday #5

Hi everyone…

Welcome to Shabby Sunday #5, and this week I have made a shabby chic tag book.

If you popped into my blog on Friday, I had mentioned that I was attending a book making workshop over in Edinburgh, at a craft shop called Stampers Grove. ย  It was a really good class, ย a great tutor called Yvonne, I had a lot of fun! and I enjoyed craftingwith a lovely group of ย ladies ย ๐Ÿ™‚

My project today is a Tag Book, using my newly learned techniques from yesterday’s class.

you can use whatever paper you have, I used patterned paper, you might fancy watercolour paper, ordinary copier paper, or scrap paper to use up your “bits”

Shabby Sunday #2

Shabby Sunday #2

Hello everyone!

Well… another week has passed without much crafting going on… but I managed to get up to my shed tonight to create something for shabby sunday.

I know I said last week that I would make some shabby embelishments, but a change of plan was in order, given the lack of time I had, and made a card instead ๐Ÿ™‚

I also challenged myself to use the colour purple, now although I love the colour, I do struggle to make stuff with it.. so here is my wee shabby purple card

I’m starting a new feature on my blog tomorrow ….. Sunday’s will now be known as “Shabby Sunday”

Each Sunday I will create one thing, it could be a card or an embelishment, a mini book, a tag, altering item’s etc…. ย just all things shabby ๐Ÿ™‚

It seems like a long time since I made anything shabby chic, and this is my way of getting back to doing what I love and sharing it here on my blog.

It will be purely blog posts at the moment, however, I do hope to record video tutorials and feature these too, and maybe a live Ustream depending on how things go ๐Ÿ™‚

See you tomorrow for Shabby Sunday #1
