love thing

Adhered all backing papers to blue base card according to sketch pattern added lace ans ribbon across the middle and added an extra one to the bottom because it didn't look quite right to me image printed on the computer and adhered to scallop card added sentiment to corner
Decided I really liked the sketch pattern from the crafters cafe challenge so  I did another card


I like sketch patterns,they are great if you want to make a card and don't know how you want to do it and I have to say I often look through the hoards I have saved onto my computer for a bit of inspiration
This sketch pattern is for the crafters cafe challenge
The backing paper is from my stash, adhered to light green base card cut four bits of card to match the turtles mask's then embossed them with the grunge stripe folder adhered all to card
Printed the turtles onto card and cut with cuttle bug, cut an extra set of turtles  cut out and adhered to the picture with foam glue

doll canvas

I went to a paint and wall paper shop and asked if they had any out dated wallpaper sample books, mainly because my grand children were wanting to use my good papers when they are here crafting this way they can cut, scribble and paint to their hearts content (and I don't get upset to see my papers in the bin or cut to pieces) most wallpaper shops are happy to give the books away One of the books was for children's bedrooms and these papers were in it

The dolls are a border I used contrasting plain wallpaper first adhered it to the canvas I used double sided tape along edges and glue for the rest just to give it  a bit more stick adhered the panel to the top with DS tape and glue as well then run some washi tape to top and bottom of panel

  I then stapled the back edges  just to be sure      the wallpaper wouldn't come off

I then cut butterflies on the cuttle bug  doubled them up and adhered to canvas

 This will be a cheap way to occupy the kids in the school holidays

Altered Book

 A few years ago my Daughter In Law's mother gave me a book that the pages were folded to spell my name. My very dear friend Jill saw it and loved it so I thought I would do one for herI have to admit that I did not do the folding of the book don't think I would have the patience to do it
This is the book  folded and undecorated

 This is the book decorated

I covered the book with wallpaper added a strip of hessian on the spine unfortunately I didn't take a photo of that I then put two strips of crochet tape front and back, made the flower with hessian and paper from another book, cut the leaves on the cuttle bug with papers from my stash, added beads and gems  for the butterfly trail, Hessian string wound around the book and tied up in a bow, I tied a knot in the string before tying the bow so it wouldn't untie, added some little butterflies to inside of book

was rather pleased with how it turned out and Jill loved it

have put it in this challenge
