I am supposed to sharing my Tuesday Layout today, it being Tuesday an'all however, it would appear that the piggin' t'internet problems last night lost it! Unfortunately I am now typing this in my lunch break in work so cannot reload the pics! Grrr!
Never mind. I will share the other piccies I loaded up last night which could become scrapbooks if the recipients so wish.
I recently needed to make a Thank You gift and Birthday gift for two special people and so decided to make them similar and at the same time. As most of you will be aware I do like making mini books so that is what I did.
Here is number one.....
Chipboard covers covered in hessian (or Burlap if you are from over the water) and Bo Bunny paper from a 6x6 pad I bought a while ago.
All bound with my BIA and then decorated with ribbons, some from my Snippets tin. I personalised the charms that went on them.
The flowers were a mix of paper and fabric which were all dipped in my
cauldron err melting pot, which had wax in there. It was surprising how much wax they all took. Especially as I got a little carried away and made enough for four! I brushed all the flowers over with two shades of Perfect Pearls, Kiwi and Rust.
I used my Seeds of Friendship Artistic Outpost stamp on the front with Spiced Marmalade DI and embossed it before distressing the edges. Those blue flowers I have had forever!
Here are the dividers I made, each stamped with a background and a sentiment added.
And some music as one recipient is a musical gal!
So here is number one....
Number four....! Err, You know I said I got carried away with the flowers! Well I made two more books too. One for the Raffle prize for our Annual Summer Lunch at Quilters and I actually made one for myself. This orange flower was the last of the set my friend brought me back from France! Love orange.
I used acid free watercolour paper inside so that they can be used for a variety of purposes. The two original recipients are both artistic and so may wish to sketch in them. Mine might end up with photos in.
I shall pop these down the Playground later as they contain Snippets. Why not join us? I must also find out how the Aussie parrot is doing!
