Mini Album For 2016

Hi everyone,

The other day I was looking at my bucket list and some of the things on it was to go on an adventure, craft more and become organised, now I know being organised really shouldn't be on a bucket list but I figured it would help with the other items on my list.

So yesterday I sat down and made a mini journal and gave it next years calendar 2016, now I have a place to put an adventure and be organised at the same time.

Here is what I made.

While sat at my desk


Today sat at my craft desk I was looking through some of my stamps that I haven't used for a while and found this cool typewriter stamp and text, so for a super quick make I came up with these 3 cards.

I really like this stamp set and think I will be using it more from now on.

I enjoy making cards like this as sometime no layer and keeping things simple is just what is needed.

Text on this card says "you're my type of friend"

This card says " just a note to say hello" 

This card says you're old school and cool"

Todays project has been to create a storage box for all the cards I make, as a crafter I make many different projects and sometimes finding a place to keep them after can be difficult so today I set a goal to create a storage box for my cards.  I have really had fun making this. My next challenge to myself will be a place for my mini albums. 

The box, I love covering the inside

4x4 inch happy birthday button card


After talking to a friend about making small cards I though it would be a good idea to make one as she said she struggles with them as they are tiny, this is a 4x4 inch card and a very quick make.

I really enjoy making tiny cards as you get to use tiny scraps of paper that you would normally throw away and also buttons and tiny flowers that would normally get lost on a bigger card.

Design Your Own Background Paper Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Todays blog is for the February challenge called "Design your own background" over at My Little Craft Group on Facebook. I have to say this one was a hard one for me as I love patterned papers so having to create something myself seemed a bit daunting as I didn't know how to start. Tim Holtz came to the rescue with some distress ink pads, I created my background by gliding different colours across the paper until I was happy with the style. Then cut it down into a curve and made card number 1, card number 2 was using the left over paper I punched out 3 flowers and trimmed down a strip of the paper and created card number 2.  

This is the sheet of patterned paper I created. I know it don't look much but when i cut it down I have to say i was happy with what i had done.

Card Number 1


Time Holtz - Ink Pads of your choice.
Papermania - Card Blank 6 x 4". 
Affixit Craft - Fingerlift Tape & Foam Pads.
