Mini Album....again.....


Hi to all you lovelies out there, thanks for popping by...PLEASE, leave me a comment, I get puzzled over the amount of people that come here and just leave, I will always try my best to come see you and leave a comment....OK then....I have yet another mini album this week, Carla is going to a wedding on saturday, she loved the one I made for Katie HERE, but this had to be in her friends colours etc; and a tad smaller, I really wasn't sure about it, but it kinda worked out, she likes it and thats what matters......so here we go...
The front...
Flowers are wild orchid, chippys from Live and Love Crafts, ribbon stash and sparkly button from amazon..
First page,the front and back have this little pocket detail, the scalloped edge is a X-CUT punch, little tiny pearls online ribbons stash, chippy online
TH thinlets die, Signature ivy die, flower is a woodware punch, I used Vellum which I ran through the big shot using a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercrafts a while back, it was a Cameo stamp and an embossing folder, designed by TheresaTibbetts so pretty, I just used white versamark on it and it looks so pretty...
The pattern on the card is from a stamp set I've had ages, no name, sorry..
Similar again, using the TH dies
The chippy heart was from amazon
A few of the big tags, I used alot more vellum on this than one, I so enjoyed playing and stamping on it....lol....
Phew, if you made it through, THANKS...
That's about it from me until Friday, don't forget with still have a ANYTHING GOES challenge running at CraftyCatz so get your skates on....

Mini Album



Hi to all you lovely bloggers, I hope your all keeping well...it seems so very quiet on blogland lately, everyone must've jetted off somewhere exotic I hope....

OK, I have made this for my dil sister, she has a friend marrying at the end of the month I think and she liked the one I made for another family member...NOT CARLA for once..haha
I tried not to make to many pages as it can get to time consuming and this time I made the pockets lay on the side instead of the top, lots of scrapinic gorgeousness and some lush papers I have been looking at for an age and not using...mmmmm...I know, so daft isn't it, anyway, here you go, a bit picture heavy...
I covered heavy card in canvas first, then did some embossing with the clarity brick wall stencil, the flowers are all Wild Orchid, hearts from ebay and those metal corners I have had for such a long time and couldn't find where I bought them, I wiped some deco art, champagne paste over them, all the wood cuts are from Live and Love crafts...[.with the exception of the kissing couple and horse shoe, which came from ebay...]Lots of machine stitching too, hope you can see it...
Inside, some have TH dies used on them also..
Above are the pullout pages...
The back...
The spine..as you can see I went abit daft with the flowers, but hey!! why not...
That's it, I hope she will like it, alot of time went into it planning it out, but you can never tell can you...oh well, it can always go into the box with everything else.....I am going to see if anyone has a challenge I can fit it into....FOUND ONE...Scrap and craft challenge is back today, the theme is listed on the blog, please pop over as you get to chose 3 things to use, lovely challenge... thanks so much for your visit, please let me know you called and I'll come visit you......Have a great week-end...

Back .......I hope.....


Hi Everyone, I hope you missed me as much as I missed blogging, my pc died a sudden, but not unexpected death, I have lost nine years worth of files, screammmmm, I knew it was going for a while, and my son got all the stuff for me to  put my bestest images and pictures etc; on....I just never did it, I really don't want to think about it, it can break your heart if you let it, but there are worse things at sea as my dad always told me.....SO, I am starting from scratch.....and I just learned a very expensive lesson....back up your files....lol....
_______________________________________________

As some will know we are on a break at CraftyCatz until August 19th, so I have a bag to show you, it was a quickie I made for Carla, she has some really gorgeous bags, but uses my makes for school stuff I think....

The material is from EMPRESS MILLS, and you can find it HERE..... I can never say enough about how wonderful they are to deal with and how fab the quality is....
Buttons were from ebay...

There you have it, I hope you like, she snatched it before I could take any decent shots...considering I don't know what the heck I am doing on this new pc I think I did ok.....got to go now and see if I can sort a new signature out for my post, never gave that a thought...oh well......enjoy the last week-end of the month, see you all soon....
Biggest Hugs,
Janette...xxxxxxxxx
