2 weeks catching up!

Howdy peeps, Tanmo here!
I have missed a couple of weeks, so here I am catching up!

1st of all here is my 1 layer stamping card:

I stamped THANKS then masked with a post it, then stamped the flower in 2 different colours, filled in the gaps with some orange dots and then added a few gems. Simple!

Secondly, here is my card from the previous week, where we had to use core card. I dont use it very often, but Im pleased with how this card turned out!

Thanks for looking xx

Simple cards.............

from a very snowy Somerset. Well this weeks cards are simple cards we were not allowed to use any embellishments. So i made 3 very simple thank you cards as i have been poorly and not got round to making my Christmas thank you ones yet!

I stamped and image onto some water coloured card and then coloured in using the lovey Tim Holtz
distressed pens, i used worn lipstick and aged mahogany for the flowers and peeled paint for the leaves. I then cut these out and used the distressed ink pad also T Holtz in brushed corduroy around the edge. I layered them on some kraft card and cut out. I stamped my saying straight onto the card and then stuck the image on. Now normally to finish i would have to put some pearls but i think they still look fab without them.
Keep warm. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Mini Album DT post update

Sew, Stitch, Patch Journal

Hello everyone, I can not believe it is Friday again, the year is going by so quickly again.
 For this weeks project I have made a mini memory album that I have converted into a 
Journal for my craft projects. Mine is different from the other twos as I didn't have the 
template and had started this one before Christmas but had put it down and didn't pick 
it up again until now so made it into the DT project.

I have got the idea of a old post on The Paper Trail blog. I have changed the sizes 
slightly to meet my specifications.

For this project I have used:
Have a excellent Weekend :). Much Love Sophie. x

From one 12 x 12 sheet of paper!! .............

Well today is my turn. I made my album the same way as Angie but instead of getting inky i layered paper and stamped a saying on the front of mine and wrapped some twine around. I also made some tags for inside. Just need to find some photo's and do some journaling now. Thanks for looking. Sandra

Mini Booklet!

morning bloggers, hope you all had a lovely christmas, and i`d like to wish you all a happy new year!
this week, we are all making a mini album/booklet!, made with one sheet of 12x12 paper! folded and cut, so you can fold it into a booklet,
Beth will, when shes got time, post how to achieve this, in a pictorial!
hope you like my effort, i`ve made it a bit inky, and added little tags in the pockets i`ve created from the pages, and then used 2 coaster, to act as covers, glued some ribbon, so i can tie a bow to keep it closed,
hope you like it!
love angie xx
