Button hole book binding

Hi everyone…

I have a couple of cute little handmade books to share with you…. I attended a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh this afternoon on button hole book binding with Cass Barron and it was such a fab workshop, if you ever get a chance to take a class with Cass jump at the chance as you will not be disappointed here is a link to her Facebook Page 😊

We finished our first books with some spare time left over so we got to start making another book, which I completed once I got home

Tiny Milk Carton Easter Treat Holders

Hi Everyone!

I have moved back into my shed today YAY!..

I had problems with moisture in one of the sockets, so I had to wait for a couple of dry days to dry my shed out and today the sockets finally worked without tripping the house lol..

So the heaters have been on all day full blast… so while I was up there I had a good old tidy up and sort out, and it feels good to have a clean work space again..

Today’s wee project is tiny milk cartons that hold tiny chocolate easter eggs.. these are cute, and they are also for an upcoming workshop at Stampers Grove, on April 1st, I’ll leave the details at the bottom of this post if you fancy joining us..

I also made some from my jelly print papers too

treat-4

There will be a couple more projects to make at the workshop, and I am working on these at the moment 😉

If you are in Edinburgh Saturday 1st April, and fancy some easter treat holders, 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, thanks for popping in

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 😉

Do what you love and love what you do.

Hi Everyone,

Tonight I made a start with book number two, I was late getting up to my shed, after 9pm but i managed to get the book finished 🙂

mixed media book a

I used Diamond Starlight paint on tonight’s book along with tissue tape, fibres, and a wooden heart, if you missed last night’s blog post you can catch up here as these wee books are for a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh.

mixed media book d

I love how shimmery these starlight paints are!

mixed media book b

I love the mixed fibres and think they look nice against the shimmery background of the book cover..

mixed media book c

As always, thanks for popping round, and I will be back in the next couple of days with book number three

Sarah.

p.s. if you have any special requests for a theme or colour way leave me a message in the comments below and I will see what i can do 😉
