Memories Album

I thought that I would show you what I was making just prior to Christmas (for presents), it was some Memories Albums using the Memory Keeper dies from Tonic Studios. This one was make for our friend who we very often go on road trips with, the last one being our epic American Road trip in 2017. The papers I used were all printed using the Crafters Companion Destinations CD. I also printed off some resized postcards from the CD and used them as ephemera cards. You will see in the photos that two pages look undecorated these I added photo frames to these after I took the photos. I finished it by adding "Travels With My Friends", the letters I cut out with the Cricut and then added Glossy Accents to once they were stuck in place. I think I managed to keep this quite masculine looking, hope you agree.

Thank for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

21st Birthday

I was asked in December to make a 21st Birthday and must admit that it made a nice change to Christmas themed things. I did not find time to blog it when I made it but when I saw today's challenge over on the Allsorts Blog it popped right back into my head. I used Katy Sue's Fabulous Fashion for this decoupage card, the flowers were some that I'd had made in advance, I just colour tinted the ends of the flowers. I also added a key from some that I have in my stash. Both the flowers and leaves were cut from dies from Crealies.

Mixed Media Project

I spent last Saturday with some friends celebrating a 60th birthday with one of them. As a Crafter this person decided that she wanted a crafty party for this big birthday so invited four friends to help her celebrate. We arrived and after a cup of coffee we started on this project, following an online course by Andy Skinner and using Deco Art products to decorate a paper mache book box. We had a great day with sandwiches and birthday cake at lunch time and then after continuing with the crafting in the afternoon. Later we went for a Thai meal in the evening to finish the day. I bought my project home and finished it with some embellishments that I had in my stash.

I'm entering this into the challenge over at the More Mixed Media Challenge blog, which at the moment is Anything Goes with the option of Blues. There's plenty of blue on my box so fits perfectly.
