OK, maybe not the real project life as a little too expensive and seeing I already had a 'D' folder, I just needed some folders which I found through Carole, then I made my own cards using Colorbok Flavia peaches & pomegranates 12x12 pad and a corner rounder.
I really did love doing it this way, especially at the moment with not having much time with decorating round Sam's.
Through the month I jot down main points that I might want to include in the page and if I come across a photo I might want to use too, I placed them into a folder on my lappy ready for printing off. I did this via Tesco photo shop, as treated myself to a voucher which gave me 250 prints for just £12.50, instead of 15p each which I had been doing before. So I can buy them as and when I want, using the voucher.
I cannot believe I was celebrating my 50th this year, as it only seemed like yesterday we were celebrating my mums 50th, but she was actually celebrating her 70th a few days after mine and Steven's birthdays.
Oh look what I got in the post, Sue Bubbles found them at Colemans, (her fab craft shop) for under a tenner, so grabbed a couple (one each for me and Gina, as she already owned one)...
and it's PINK too, so pretty, lol..
Oh and Sue upset the other ladies at the craft club, as Sue grabbed the last two and to rubbed it in, she told them how FAB they were in cutting corners and that it was like putting a hot knife through butter, hehehe, what a tease...
OK, she is right, it is so easy to use and will be great for my project life folders :-) also for Steven's books as I usually take the corners off all the ones I make him.
To be honest I've not done much crafting in April as had been round my daughters house sealing, priming, undercoating, painting, glossing, waxing etc. etc. etc. :-(
So only got a couple of things to show you, the first one was from a challenge that Sue bubbles sent me and Gina in a shape of a plain pencil pot,
Which I'm sorry to say I forgot to photograph, so pitched a picture from paperchase (where she brought it from)
Anyway this is how mine tuned out, I covers it with washi tape
and then on the top, I did a little scribble and coloured each little space in with each of the coloured pencils and then Mod Podge the whole pot.
The cardi is now knitted, so it's just the sewing together and knitting the button bands, (so hopefully still in with a change it will still fit her, lol)
Oh nearly forgot I started my 'smash' book, by smashing my mother of the bride outfit and story to how I brought it
Here is what I looked like.
Shame auntie (who took the photo) didn't get my shoes in. As I was in a 3.5" heel, yet I usually only ware a 1.5" heel or flatties. But these were so comfy that I stayed in them till the end, which was gone midnight, it felt as if you were walking on air, fab
My March layout will be shown in a later post as forgot to take photo, sorry...
...who works part time from home and is a carer to her youngest.
I enjoy making cards and have done since my auntie introduced me to it back in 2004 by sending me and my son lovely home made cards for our Birthdays...
...Thank you Liz
I now enjoy scrap booking, especially when I realized I could not give some of my lovely stash away, lol
Oh yes and....
.....I'm a self confessed stash-aholic, lol
