I'm still here.......

......but having evaluated all my crafting supplies and the fact that I have approximately 300 handmade cards stored in boxes in various locations around the house I have decided to stop making cards and concentrate instead on my scrapbooking as I feel that has more of a purpose.

I've been busy selling various cardmaking supplies (on Ebay and Facebook) but still have the cards sat around and short of giving them away am now at a loss what to do with them so would welcome any ideas!!

I shall return soon (when my crafting area is less full of Jiffy bags, envelopes and tape) with scrapbook layouts - well, that's the plan!!

Hoping someone out there is still reading this and may want to return...........

Pockets - July 1st 2012

It's funny that having looked at all the different Project Life page protectors I thought the ones with the 4 6"x 6" squares would be the most difficult to use. Not only did I manage to use one but I got away with only using 4 sheets of My Mind's Eye papers having scrapped on both sides of the sheets. Here is the reverse side of the previous pages:


Materials used: My Mind's Eye papers, PL 5th and Frolic cards, Bo Bunny sticker, Autumn Leaves sticker, Prima alphabet stickers, Sticko stickers, Staedtler fineliner pen.

Pockets - 2nd June 2012

Another pocket page to share - this one with photos from 2nd June 2012 when we first went on a walk that meant crossing three sets of stepping stones, not once but twice. I loathe stepping stones as my balance is useless so I ended up just wading through the water instead LOL!

Neil thought it would be a great idea to carry Jess across and then leave her sat on one of the rocks in the middle of the water, bless her!!


Materials used: various PL cards, Chatterbox alphabet stickers, KI Memories quote, Making Memories tiny alphabet stickers, Authentique printed die-cut, K & Co paper, My Mind's Eye sticker, My Mind's Eye transparent card, Scenic Route paper, Pebbles Inc rub-on, Kaisercraft rhinestones.
