Memories - Scalloped Mini Album

Hi! I'm back today with a DT project I created for Crafty Cutting


This is a 6 pagem 4" x 4" scalloped chipboard album and it's held together by 2 book rings. 

I cut some 12 x 12 papers in to 4" squares and adhered them to the fronts of all the pages. I then cut around the scallops with a craft knife. Once the fronts were all done I repeated the process for the other side of all the pages. 
(Remember to punch the holes for the book rings on the front before adhering the paper to the back, or they will be completely covered over - making it rather difficult to find them after!)


I embellished the front cover by layering some cheesecloth, a chipboard card, a tag I cut from the patterned papers, lace and a 1" flower. I then added a wooden heart, also from Crafty Cutting. On top of the heart I layered a peach flossed button, 'memories' word sticker, a bronze heart and some Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

A Wooden Heart...

Hello!!! I am just popping in quickly with a little altered project I did last week. 
I got these fabulous wooden hearts from Crafty Cutting and made some hanging heart decorations with them. They would be lovely on one of those twig trees as decor for Valentine's Day! I also designed them in a way that they could be hung as a banner. 


I prepared them by painting the back and sides black. I covered the front with Prima patterned papers, using a craft knife to trim around them. To soften the edges I sanded them. 


I added simple embellishments like lace, flossed buttons, a metal key, a metal lock and some pearl pen.


This would be the middle heart if I was to make the banner. The rose is about 0.75" in diameter. For the words I think I used Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers - I have a few brands or word stickers and I can't remember exactly which one I used. 


I did have 6 of these hearts but I used one on the front of a  mini album which I will share soon :) 
In the meantime you can find some great inspiration over on the Crafty Cutting Facebook page

Have a great day!

La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - Funky Colours!

Good morning and happy Friday!! 
It's been a pretty cold week here but things are starting to warm up! We have a 'balmy' 6C today :/ I am a big fan of snow, frost and ice but only from inside my nice warm house, looking out the windows! lol. 

The upside of all this freezing cold weather is that I get to stay in and play in the craft room. I've had a very productive week and hope to share a little more with you over the coming week. I am also working on listings for my Etsy store - another sorely neglected project! 

This week our La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday theme is 
Funky Colours! 



I coloured her up with Copic markers:
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - YG11, YG21, YG23, YG25
Dress - YR14, YR16, YR18. RV21, RV25
Wings - B01, B02, B05. RV21, RV23, RV25

The papers I used are 24 Seven from Simple Stories and I've matted them onto lime and white cardstock. The inside has been designed to compliment the front of the card.
