A montage of our recent projects

Saturday, 24 April 2010

Long post for a long project literally.

I made this album from a design by Andrea Walford, It was really enjoyable to make. It is call a tri shutter album and was made for one of my ex- bosses at work who retired yesterday.

The album when open is over 30 inches long, the base card use is Stampin up craft card 12 x 12. The papers are long since retired so I have not listed them. This album is for grandchildren picture and annotation about them.

The pictures are various views, blogger won't let me set them out as I want, think I need to alter the settings. Take care Bee

lili of the valley challenge

This is the first attempt at this challenge,and was fun to do. This is a link to the challenge http://liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge.blogspot.com/

Playing away and at home.

An enjoyable day at one of our local craft shops 'Embsay Crafts' with friends at the card club organised by Elaine. The company was good as were the ideas that flowed around, thank you one and all. Thanks to Michelle for the lift even though she was not well. We saw a ribbon box that you put together yourself, that had been decorated by Katie thanks for the inspiration.
We came home and decided to make one up, the box is coloured with Adirondack inks in Denim and Stonewash and distressed ink in peeled paint. The box was sprayed with cosmic shimmer in silver. The letters are the spazzghetti font by Sizzix. The buttons and flowers are from Edwina's in Bradford, and coloured with matching inks. We really enjoyed making this box only seven more to go.

Tuesday Taggers Challenge

Happy Birthday Emma
I realise the challenge was cakes & balloons,and I have done a retirement card. The card is for a manager at work on his retirement. The reason for the cakes is he loves cakes, so I am planning some pun or wit regarding cakes and retirement on the back of the card. I have to say I am not sure this is the card I wanted to end up with. but i will look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow. Not thinking too straight today. Bee

Easel card with box

Saw this idea on a few blogs sorry can't remember where, but thanks for the idea. It's basically an easel card, with a box attached. The paper is craft house bought in a local craft shop called Holly Red, the paper has the same design on both sides one dark & one light tone. The rub on word is from a set I have had for a while and the flower support is also a rub on from that set. My friend who is retiring was really pleased with the card and also the gift in the box.

Tuesday Taggers Challenge Bugs

Last minute as usual, but blogger would not let me post pictures, several people seem to have had the same problem. The card is cover in kaban paper, the stamps are Inkadinkado and the quote is mine it's says "life is sometimes about being up and sometimes being down", if you look at the stamped images you will see why. I used masking to stamp the individual images, I forgot how much I like doing masking. The images are coloured with pro markers. Bee
