Hello Blogging Friends
I hope you have all had a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend. Wasn't it nice to see a bit of sun again? Unfortunately I was a poorly bunny at the start of the weekend but have now rallied around just in time to go back to work!
You know I recently told you that April is a busy month for me Birthday wise? Well, one of the Special Birthdays was Mr Hettie's and as usual I made him something daft for his Birthday, and I thought I would share it with you today as it is a Mini Scrapbook. You might want to make a cuppa or get a glass of something as this is a little picture heavy!
The cover was made using a heavyweight chip board which I painted with some red emulsion, before stamping with Black Soot DI and also rubbing some BS DI over the surface.
I used my trusty BIA to bind the whole book together and added some Snippets of ribbon and two small charms. The saw is a hint of what is to come!
The main papers used are some We Are Memory Keepers papers which I bought ages ago with an album, that I had quite forgotten about, as well as some Snippets from my Snippets boxes. I turned to my Diesel Punk, Think and Wonder and Lovely Day Artistic Outpost stamps for stampings. I also used my new Inkylicious Splodge stamp to look like oil blobs!
The arrows and other embellishments were cut using various Sizzix dies. Zips from my sewing box for extra layers. Yes this is yours truly!! These photos were taken in the early 1990s!!
Those car stickers I have had forever. I also doodled on all the pages. Added some pearls, buttons, sparklies, and brads.
This piece of punched ribbon was made for my Christmas Album! Tee Hee!
Please excuse the pun.......
Some Martha Stewart punchings..
These little glasses were a broach which comes from when I used to work for an opticians....1986-1989! Talk about hanging on to things "just in case"!
And here is Sputnik casting an eye over the project!
The little white printed arrows came from Wilkinsons and are like post-its! I knew they would come in handy at some point!
Some Czech stickers we bought on one of our trips.
And here is the back cover with a car sticker. Fortunately we had two so Mr Hettie didn't mind too much!
I hope you enjoyed my Mini Album for Mr Hettie. I shall be popping it over to the Playground as there are sooo many Snippets in there. I shall also be putting it into the Artistic Outpost Challenge as I have used my AO stamps.
Have a good week everyone.
