I've been working on a couple of projects today. I saw this one on Pinterest and thought I'd give it a go. Waiting for it to dry now before I can finish it off .

Very little going on crafting wise this week, 5 of the 7 of us have been struck by the winter bug and I can't remember the last time I felt so poorly! I only managed an ATC and a very pretty blinged up heart. I made the bling after watching Jenniebellie on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZJdlLUd_u4&list=UULcCpPlstxRVN-Bi7cll8MA&index=2)

Following my post yesterday and having waited overnight for the glue to dry properly on my mini album, I went to work on it this morning only to find out that I had stuck some of the papers on the wrong side of the envelope and had therefore closed up my pockets! So glad that I used cheapy envelopes and papers that I had received free! Good job that I did a dummy run first! Hee, hee, hee - lesson learned!

I have been able to spend some time in the studio each day, even if only for 20 minutes! I have been playing around with an envelope mini that I have seen in several different formats on YouTube. Most of the tutorials are from the US so I have had to change some of the measurements.
Anyway, I didn't want to go straight for it without trying a mock-up first using some papers that I had received with a magazine. So this is how it's looking so far; tomorrow I will have a go at the cover using some recycled cereal boxes.
The first picture will be where I need to attach the cover and the pictures above and to the left are a couple of pictures of the inside of the album.

I've had to stay indoors today and have taken the opportunity to do lots of odd jobs including having a post Christmas tidy up in the studio. I've changed round the order of the things that I keep out on my desk, I've taken my most used Sizzix dies out of their packs and found a nice storage box to keep them in - they are accessible all the time without having to fiddle with the packaging. I always find clearing and tidying in the studio renews my creative energy!

I have got the year off to a flying start; ATC's for the themed swaps in my group and a 1st of the year birthday card.
I'm off to start on a new type of journal now using some prompts.
