Teachers Book

It's Taylor's last day at school tomorrow then its the 7 weeks holidays (far to long. Help!!) and he asked us earlier in the week if he could get his teacher a present. So I made another of my cd scrapbooks for his teacher to put photos of the class in. I put the year, class and school on the front page. I'm really enjoying making these at mo and I'm currently on the hunt for more old cds to make more. What do you all think? Sorry for the photo's being side ways for some reason its uploaded them this way and can't work out how to change it. Michelle

We're getting Lucas christened in September and I thought its about time I got on withthe invites as we have family who live away from us and wanted to give them plenty of notice. So here are my final design. Not quite sure if I like them very much, feel I could of done better but at least they are done (well almost got a few extras to make now). Hope you like. Michelle

Star Wars Concertina Book

Finally got around to making my 'Star Wars' mini book. Four of us (all BIG Big Star Wars fans) went to the 30th anniversary convention. back in July 2007. What a brilliant day. I was like a big kid, making sure I had my picture taken with as many characters as possible and collecting as many 'free' souvenirs as possible. It's one of the best days out I'd ever had. So to capture the memories I have saved them into a book that I made. Jeanette

New Style Book

As you can see Michelle and I have been busy making books.
So here we are, another book which I've been itching to make and finally found the time to do it.
It is quite small, measures 8cms x 8cms - there are in total seven inner pages and the front and back covers are made of very sturdy board so in total you have 16 sides to put in your photo's embellishments and journalling. It amazing how much you can cram in. As this is my first book I have already decided to change the ribbon so I'm going to tweak it slightly but overall I'm pleased with the results. Hope you like it.

21st Card and Scrapbook

It's my sister in laws 21st birthday tomorrow. So this week I've been busy making her a card and present. I decide to make her a scrapbook out of old Cd's so she can put photo's of her party. And for her card I've used girls about town images as she's a bit of a SHOPAHOLIC! But aren't we all. Hope you like them. Michelle x

At Last!!!

At last I finally have got some time to myself and made a few cards. I'm a bit out of practise but hey I enjoyed making them. All the papers I used where from Janette who has been having lots of garage sales and I couldn't resist the papers. If I could I'd buy the lot. All the images I've used on the cards, I've had for sometime just sitting about waiting to be used. I've been lost recently as I've got lots more new images I brought but my printer broke. Blue went out tonight and got us another printer. Hooray! Hope you like the cards. Michelle x

Decoupage - Ballet Dancer

Just a quick card tonight. This decoupage image is from a CD purchased a long time ago and have used this one quite a bit. Hope you like it. Jeanette
