Recipe Card {Beef}

Hi all…

I’m taking part in the April Recipe Card Swap over at Your Paper Pantry and I needed to have a play around in my workshop tonight, and this is the prototype that I came up with, It can certainly benefit from having a few *tweeks* here and there and hopefully this weekend i’ll perfect my finished recipe cards for the swap 🙂

I made this tonight over on Ustream and I have had thee most fun ever on there tonight when a whole host of lovely ladies joined me from Twitter, Ustream, and Youtube… Ladies THANK YOU so much your company was most appreciated xx

The Crafty Chronicle Notepad

I’m using up more scraps of paper tonight creating bits and bobs for the challenge over at YPP this weekend..

Tonight I used more of the papers left over from the shabby chic cards I made earlier last week, I used them to alter a cheap and cheerful notepad from my local supermarket 🙂 Love how it turned out.

The scraps of paper used are all from the K & Company Charlotte and Bailey Paper Pads and the crafty chronicles newspaper from Donna Salazar 🙂   I used my Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium Matte to adhere the sentiment and I LOVE this stuff, its thick and a little goes a long way, plus when it dries it doesnt leave a sticky/tacky residue 🙂 so 10/10 and thumbs up for this product

I also used the star flower that I made at the weekend as an embelishment.. I need to invest in a star punch or die cut.
