Well have spent a great afternoon with my wonderful niece Laura and we have been making yet another mini - I will get her hooked before long I am sure.  Have sent her home with lots of card making stuff - can't wait to see what she makes will post here soon

anyway this is another commission for a baby boy

Hope you like it  TFL xxxx

this little booklet opens out with another 7 places for small photos.  It is held with a small brad.

All the papers and stickers are from my stash have no idea where half of it came from, really must sort everything out lol.

Bye for now.

Mickey Album

Good Morning

Well its been a rather strange week for me, I said goodbye to a work colleague which was quite sad, I got my new Silhoutte Cameo which doesn't cut as the blade is stuck (NOT HAPPY) so I have had to write to them and ask for a replacement - its just sitting there crying out to be used.

So I finished an album I have been working on for an 18th birthday, she is a Disney Fan through and through and this was ordered by her boyfriend, can't wait to see her face.

I have used papers that I bought in Florida a few years ago and also all the stickers.

Hope you like it

TFL xxxx

The Spine is some rose trim I had already - the mickey bow in the photo is was going to put on the spine but changed my mind.

I created the photo mat with the Cameo that was  the only time it worked.  But the possibilities are endless can't wait for the new blades.

Hope everyone has a great Weekend.

Album Box

Morning, from a very Miserable and Wet August Bank Holiday in Wales.

Although it is always sunny in my craft room so can't complain to much as I can't go outside...........such a shame, i will have to stay in here for the day.

Well I thought I would share with you the box I made for yesterdays mini album, I was asked to make it as the person it was made for loved it so much she didn't just want to wrap it up. plus I told her it would keep better in a box :-)

So here it is -

I made the box from Bazzill Basic card stock and covered with the papers I was using for the mini

Hope you like it....TFL

Have a great day.

First Xmas Card

Hi All

Just a quick post for my first Xmas Card - I have used the Tiddly Inks Christmas Set by Christy Croll and Embossing board.  For the background I used the Darice embossing folder and the tree is Spell Binders large leaf set.

Hope you like it


Secret Gardens

Well Happy Saturday to all,

We have had lovely weather here today, even managed to wash and dry everything out on the line...........
So his afternoon I finished another mini album, which was done for a customer (woo hoo) the person buying it for her said that she loves flowers I tried to used all the stash for the Graphics 45 Secret garden that I had and also match up some papers, I think it turned out rather well to say I didn't have the paper pad

I hope you like it and TFL xxx have a glorious weekend

 I used one of the tags from the only page I had, I cover some of the elements on the tag with glossy accents.  I used a satin ribbon from my stash for the closure and a host of small roses from prima.

Each page s done with one sheet of 12 x 12 and folded in different ways to get more pockets for tags and photo mats -  I have used hinges to hold all the pages together and also used to Tonic punch not sure of the name of it.

Hope you like it and look forward to your comments.

Happy Saturday

Thank You Card

Evening All

Well just thought I would share a card with you using a Lily of the Valley stamp.  I have just started using my promarkers again and it won't take long before I am addicted to stamping.Which is probably a good thing as I have so many stamps, which are hardly ever used.

The card is a 6x6 square cream base, I used Butterfly Garden pattern paper from Wild Rose Studio mounted on plain pink card. The stamped image is cut out using a spellbinders label die and I also cut a frame which I mounted on foam tape to pop it off the card itself.  The leaves are die cut from a Marianne Creation die.  The flowers are just from my stash.
I also used a Teresa Collins THANK YOU stamp with StazOn jet black ink which is mounted on pink and plain white card.

Hope you like it

Thanks for looking.

Entered into challenge

Pocket Page Mini

Evening All

Well what can I say had the most wonderful surprise 50th Birthday Party was amazing - and then had today off work so I got on with finishing a new pocket page mini I have been working on,  I ahve used Teresa Collings MEMORABILIA and also MME Handsome Collections for the papers, with a hidden hinge system.

I Used some flower punches and the papers with some bling I coloured with Pro Markers soft green. The charm was in my stash already so I cant remember where that was from.

All the pages are basically the same each has a large photo mat and also a flap that opens for more photos.

The split page I like as that have another dimension to it.

Well thats for looking hope you like it and comment.
