Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

Rainy day = Productive day

Here are the results of my productive day - 4 mini albums, 1 decorated paper bag and 8 jumbo paperclip/bookmarks. All made with the latest download from Funky Hand ,Salt & Pepper - black and white papers - because my SU order is not here yet.
A close up of the bookmarks I made today after demonstrating at the 'Make and Take' yesterday for WCMDay. From the new SU catalogue, the stamp set 'One of a Kind' together with the co-ordinating 'Boho Blossoms' punch are a must-have for anybody! The very useful scallop circle punch formed the base of layered circles of 1 3/8", 1 1/4" and 1" and a stamped image of a flower from 'One of a Kind' on the top. With dimensionals to secure the paperlip, another scallop circle was stuck to the back to cover the dimensionals. So quick and easy to make, and great for fund raising events.
I cant wait for my new SU 'Scallop border' punch to arrive so at this point in time I had to use a substitute 'Threading water' punch for the top edge of the bag. The centre embellishment was made exactly as the bookmarks above and matted on pale plum card, paper pricked at the corners, the remaining flowers from the 'One of a Kind' 3-flower stamp adhered in the corners, whisper white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon tied at the front, and a bow tied at the top to seal the bag.
And the four Bind It All albums made in an hour with beer mats! Who would know! An ideal size of 90cm square, the pages were cut at 85cm square and bound with 5/8" O Wires. The front embellishments were either flora doodles, layered ,or the same SU scallops and circles as the bookmarks above. So useful and a joy to make - so neat and pretty!

Thank you for stopping by - and if you would like to leave a comment, it would make my day!
