I've been thinking about having another Tattoo for a while now but couldn't settle on what to have. seeing this on-line this evening i now know this is just what I've been looking for. I think for the inside of my right wrist, or maybe on my foot!
Sami and I took a trip to Glastonbury on Saturday. We hadn't told Sami's children where we were going just that they would need their cameras and to get up at 4.30am. they were both really excited, but like the clever little monkeys they are guessed where we where headed before we had reached the mainland.
We had a wonderful day wandering about the town, looking in all the shops at the witchy goodness and buying ourselves some yummy jewelry.
In the afternoon we visited the Chalice Well ( a favourite for both of us) where we relaxed, recharged our batteries and pic-niced. I hope you all had a great bank holiday weekend. TFL Px
Like many a scrapbooker I have seen the SMASH book on youtube and thought Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? Why??? Why would I pay so much for something I as a crafter could make in a few sessions (or as I did in an afternoon). Anyway to the point of this post here's My Ideas Book.For the covers I used some really tough mountboard, I made sure I used plenty of PVA glue to hold all the folds and corners down. Inside I used a mix of some of my favourite papers so I'll always enjoy opening the book to look inside. I added three mini clips to 3 layered pieces of cardstock and fixed this down with brads (before covering the book). I can add sketches and LO's I have seen on the web here. On the other side of the book I put a side pocket for note paper. I covered one of my favourite ultra thin sharpies in OA paper and added some stickers and tape. Here's the Book in use I have also jazzed up a clear packing bag to hold photos and leaflets that I collect, it fits inside the book perfectly. I'm loving having this book to use and find I am much more organised in my scrapping than I was before. all my ideas are in one place and so easy to find when I need a little inspiration.
I got home from work today to find a parcel from the States waiting for me. I figured it was the prize I had won for taking part in the Scavenger Hunt Challenge over on October Afternoon. What I wasn't expecting was just how much loveliness there was going to be inside the box!
Two sheets of each of the patterned paper in the 5 & Dime collectionMatching rub-ons and Stickers
and 2 sheets of the Die-cut stickerss
I'm off out tonight but can't wait for an evening at home with all this lovely new stash :) Thank you October Afternoon!!! You Rock!!!!!
I have been meaning to complete this LO for a while, and finally got about to it at the weekend. Jack is two and a half now (which seems amazing!) but a few months back his Mummy emailed me a list of words and phrases he was using at the time. I thought it would be nice to do a LO and keep them as a record of his progress (and also something to tease him about when he's 18).
The papers are all October afternoon and apart from the Bazzill CS they I only used scraps of paper left over from other projects. I cut what I had left of the star paper in two, and layered strips of other paper to make it look like I had a whole sheet for the back ground. I then printed out "Jacks words" onto some A4 kraft paper and trimmed them to fit.
I'm really happy with how these four photos fill the page. I used several strips of Bazzill CS and Sassafrass papers, and embellished with Sassafrass and October afternoon stickers. I used my cricut to cut the title. TFL
I live with my wonderful Hubby (Trav) on the Isle of Wight, we moved here November 2006 and we love it. We have a Ginger Tom called Vinnie Jones and four beautiful Cocker Spaniels girlies.
I have always been a crafter at heart about 2003 I started making my own cards and from there progressed to scrapbooking, over the last few years my style of scrapping has changed quite a bit. In February 2010 a friend taught me how to crochet, this has now become one of my most favourite things to do. I work at a local secondary school as a cover supervisor (taking lessons when teaching staff are out sick). I am proud to be Wiccan and call myself a Witch. My husband and I belong to a morris dancing team called Bloodstone Border Morris, we spend weekends dressing up, blacking our faces and bashing sticks together.
