Work in progress

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 .

A quiet week

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 (

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!

Keeping up the creativity

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.

Renewing my creative energy

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!

Happy New Year Everyone!

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.
