Kenny K and Sketch Saturday Challenge

Good morning all.  Just a short post this morning to show a card that I am entering into two challenges.  I could not believe just how many problems I had with this card.  I must have started it at least three times - so much about it that I changed my mind about - and then I couldn't get the papers straight.  I blame the fact that we are altering a couple of rooms in the house at the moment - knocking two rooms into one - and one of the rooms is the one that I play in!  Not good eh - lack of concentration and having to keep the dust down.  Never mind - hopefully it'll be worth it when it's done.

Anyway here is my card -

I would like to enter it into -

Sketch Saturday Week 251 - Sketch
Kenny K - Challenge 136 - Anything Goes

Thank you for popping by.

Time for another Challenge methinks.......

Good morning everyone - I hope you are all well in blogland and looking forward to the weekend - they come round so fast, don't they.

It's been a month since our little dog had his operation on his leg so he can now start to go for walks - just 10 minutes at a time to start off with - and boy hasn't he been waiting for them!  He's been so sulky with us and gets really excited when we get visitors - I think he thinks they will take him out!  But he is only a three year old and has boundless energy that we have to try to control for at least another two months - sigh!

Today I am going to show you a card made for an 18 year old.  I have used a Kenny K image - Anime Rocker - but can't remember the book stack that the papers are from (lost the front cover).  The embossed square is Core Impressions, Vintage Brights Collection - there are 4 embossed patterns in 5 colours and they sand down to reveal the core colour with no effort.


 Inside (still deciding on what greeting to add)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Kenny K Challenge - Happy Birthday
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Choose a Sketch (Sketch 1)
Inky Impressions Challenge - Add Blue for Colon Cancer Awareness

Thank you for visiting my blog.

A Book Card with Flowers and Fairies

Okay, so I'm sorry it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted.  I have an update to show you on the mini album I am attempting for the first time.  It's been a bit delayed because I had order some Tyvek Envelopes for the spine and had to wait for them to arrive ....the ones that feel furry but do not rip or puncture even when wet.  The material is ideal for reinforcing the spine and then Duck tape is put over the top of it.  (Credit to Kathy Orta - if you are into making mini albums or something a little different, her ideas are super fabby!)

I also have another box card to show you which is for a friend's birthday next week.  All the flowers are made from Tonic Studios punches - digi images from Spesch Digital Stamps - papers are some I've had around for a long time from Kay & Co Blue Awning.

 Front of mini album - waiting to be decorated and some sort of fastening to be added.
Back also ready to be decorated.

Inside the front page showing how the cover is attached.  All the workings will be covered eventually.

......and now the box card........

Had to make a box to fit the box card.......
which looks like this.....

and back 

Thank you for looking and enjoy the rest of the evening.

A Mini Album

Good afternoon all.  It has been a beautiful day here ........ I have spent most of it tidying the garden - enjoying the warm Spring sunshine    I am sure that I shall have a couple of  aches to show for it in the morning.  The house has once again been neglected - sigh.

I haven't blogged for a while - but there is a reason for that.  I have always fancied trying to make a mini album - you know the sort of little book like thing that you keep photo's in and little journalling notes that you make.  Well it has kept me busy - and that's just working out and writing down sizes in case I decide to make another one.  It's still not finished but I have a couple of piccies to show you how it's coming along.

 This shows a page with one of the inserts.  There are three pockets on one side of the insert for tickets, journelling notes etc.  The other 3 sides of the insert will be for photos.
Showing the same page and how the insert fits into a pocket in the side of the page.
 An insert with three pockets waiting to be decorated.  (Not very pretty at this stage)
 The insert decorated.
 The beginning of the binding and spacers to hold all the pages together.
...and this will be the hard cover for the front.......there's a similar one for the back cover.

So there it is - as you can see there's still much to be done.  I'm not very good at explaining so I hope you got the gist of it. There'll be more photo's when it's complete. 

Thanks for visiting my blog.
