Embrace

I keep forgetting to post pages from my new hardback book journal mainly because I cant stop playing which is the point really I suppose.

So how did this come about? Well i got hooked on a trip to see my friend Mags Woodcock about a month ago. One evening she showed me the book she had been creating in and I loved it so much I decided to start my own.

The book was £1 from a charity shop and was a bit brown and well thumbed. I only use my stash  and no specially bought products so its just a bit more "mine"

This double page started because we were all talking in class about the poppies for Remembrance Sunday and I had a few small circle punches in my craft bag.
 Initially I started with just a few circle flowers
but then I sort of got carried away.
 
This has become my go to book when I want to clear my mind and just play. Hope you like it xx

Alchemy

This was a fantastic release from SamanthaK and definitely one of my favourites. I made two layouts for this show. This is the first
I absolutely adore the little MDF bottles and Samantha even provided the tiny labels in the kit
There were some lovely words and a load of science shapes and science table printouts to use.
You can find SamanthaK's shop HERE where you can find all of her MDF releases.

Another page in my journal

Sometimes its really nice to be able to step away from preparing classes. On Saturday I was lucky enough to attend a Tracy Scott class at The Artistic Stamper in Faversham and I had a great time.
This is my take on Tracy's page and I'm really please with it. 
Different colours for me but that was the point, taking myself out of my comfort zone and learning a few tips along the way. Here is a bit more detail.

The stamps we used are 
PaperArtsy - Rubber stamps - E3 Tracy Scott 28
Had an amazing time and was so pleased with the result. x

Tag Box for SamanthaK DT

I have got so many projects to share with you which I have made for SamanthaK's Design Team that I don't know where to start so I am going back to the tail end of last year when I made this lovely Tag Box
The whole thing is made using this set from SamanthaK's MDF
which was sold on Hochandatv. I don't think this kit is available at present but you can still buy the boxes HERE
The whole box was covered with soft sage green and grey papers and then decorated using painted MDF Herbs and a small amount of lace around the bottom.
I made some card tags out of purple cardstock and placed them in the slots on the top of the box.
Such a pretty gift for family or friends. One of my favourite collections.

Just for me

Every so often I come across a 12 x 12 paper that I can't get in quantity for a class but is crying out to be used. I fell in love with this paper which was part of a paper pack and decided to have some me time making a layout.
The face was part of the paper so I used a feather napkin to fill the bottom of the page and then stamped and coloured feathers using Distress Oxides.
 I also used some foil to add a bit of sparkle.
Really pleased with this one and definitely one for the album. x
