I recently decorated a postcard for a birthday and this is the postcard element.

I stamped the image which is an artistic stamper stamp then coloured it red to colour the script. 

I then distressed the background first with antique linen then embossed the cogs and stencilled keys using vintage photo and brushed cord on the three cogs and round the edges.

I seem to be making cards of just one or two colours and colours that I wouldn't normally pick - like green. This is probably one of my favourite cards so far this year.

demans demands :)

I love the Tim Holtz snowflake rossette die (large size) as I mentioned them to a good friend the other day I thought I had better put a pic on just to prove to her I do review my blog... you know who you are ;)

Anyway all I have done to the following snowflakes is distress them and the white and black one have some glamour dust applied.

Here is a card that I have done with the stampersanonymous blueprint xmas tree stamp, with a snowflake.  The background is a distressed stamped docrafts stamp.

A couple of days ago I went craft shopping with a good friend... probably not such a good idea as I couldn't help myself especially when it came to these xmas stamps from stampersanonymous:

There's 4 stamps the one i haven't included is a snowflake.

For the above I have stamped them using momento brown onto cream card and distressed round the edges with vintage photo

Photo's added

I have got my large amount of brown paper bags with scrapbook kits (12x12) down to a handful!!  Don't mention all the other projects...

I now have over two boxes of scrapbook pages that need photos so here are a few that I have recently added photo's to all that's left is the journalling:

 The first layout was from a class where we had to pick our own papers, i've had this layout for ages without pics as I liked it so much and didn't know what to do with it!!  I decided on the pics because they were taken in autumn on a visit to Prague.

I have a number of pages made from these papers which were all taken in Ibiza here are a couple:

The following layout had the pic chosen by a friend I added a couple of other photo's that hopefully hide the fact that I stuck the papers on wonky :)

 I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to scan a lot of the families older pics this is one of my mum taken in the 70's which I have scrapped before but I love the pic.  On this layout the pic is the same one is colour and one is black and white

This is my first scrapbook page of baby who is now 6 months old and limits the amount of crafting I get done!

It's been so long...

I forgot my password!!

When i've had the chance to craft I have been finishing off scrapbook pages from projects over the years from classes at scrapbook sisters.

Anyway I now have two boxes full of pages that need photo's and still a bag full of unfinished pages! and that doesn't include the mini books and other projects :O

Here are a couple of layouts I have recently added photo's to:

In class I occasionally do my own thing with the papers when I come to complete the pages i sometimes have all manner of papers left over so I created this page with papers left - the photo's are shop windows in Prague which were fab.  The flowers are a mixture from my stash with candi as the centres and a little gloss accents on the petals for drops of water.

The following page is the same as a class layout with the addition of watch parts from my stash.  The pic is taken in Prague.

The paper is Bo Bunny, the clock face is a Tim Holtz die and the stamped image in the clock is Indigoblu stamp, her hair is glittered with glamour dust.

Bottom right of the clock is some small metal cogs which I purchased from ebay here's a pic of the cogs up close:
