Art Deco Project Book



Hi everyone,
Been having problems loading up pictures on here, hence the lack of posts - sorry about that!

This is my latest design. I wanted to try something a bit different from my cardmaking as I was having trouble getting back into it after a few weeks holiday and illness, and it seems to have worked out well! Crafty bug is back!

Recipe:

Spiral bound project book - Wilkinsons
Image - Kanban Crafts
Gems - Studio 24 Catalogue
Backing paper (main) - Making Memories Ruby Razberry Floral DS 12x12
Backing paper (behind image) - Payper Box

The Project Book originally had a different cover on it, which I replaced with lovely MM paper which is 2 sided. Trying to punch holes in the right place was a little daunting, but I managed it quite well! hehe

Hope you like it.

I'm Back!!!


Well, it has been quite a while since I have posted anything! Sorry about that! I'm back for now, and I have quite a few things to show you, yipee! I have been a busy bee up in my craft room the past few weeks, as I have been asked (after volunteering myself) to sell my cards and other papercrafts in a new shop opening in Surrey next year. It's not set in stone yet, but hopefully will be by Christmas, so i'm rather excited! I'm meeting the owner of the shop-to-be this Saturday and i'm going to be armed with all my creations, so I hope she likes them!! hehe
I have started to take my pictures differently, as I think they look a bit more professional on the easel and with the side view to show off the design. What do you all think? I also stuck one of my stickers on the easel 'Lulu's Cards' which I stick on the back of everything I make as I thought it was good advertising for my website! hehe. I'm hoping to get my website up and running by the new year where I will be selling my crafty items, well thats the plan anyway!! Takes up a lot of time, as i'm sure most of you can appreciate!

I bought a new stamp this week, and thought I would show you what I have done with it!

Friendship Exchange over at Craftbubble was a success...

Over on craftbubble, there has been a Friendship Exchange going on and this was my gift to one of the lucky bubblers! I'm pleased to report that she loved it, which is always nice to hear and considering this was my first ever try at making a notebook, its even better to hear how much it's appreciated!

I popped into Tesco and they have a bargain section where I found 2 packs of plain notebooks for £1, and I just thought to myself, what a lovely gift for someone if I jazzed it up, and I might even make one for myself too! As you can see, I just covered it in really nice jazzy paper, by Me and My Big Ideas which I bought from www.artymiss.co.uk and used one of my favourite Tilda stamps which I coloured with Promarkers. I added a few buttons, cute flowers and some sparkle to the flowers on the paper. To finish it off I then added some bows to the spine and 'voila', finished notebook!

Hope you like it!
