Finished and New Creations

Hiya, How’s everyone on this cold snowy December Day? I’m snuggled up on the couch with the dogs so thought I’d share my recent creations and current projects. Since my last 2 blog posts, I’ve finally found out why I’ve been so unwell. I have a condition called FND (Functional Neurological Disorder) and low iron levels. You can find out more info about the condition at fndaction.

I finally finished the baby album that I’ve been working on since June, in September. I used several different paper collections. I’ll list them as I remember.

  • Tickled Pink digital collection from http://www.nitwitcollections.com
  • Vintage Floral Butterfly 6″ Paper Pad by Dovecraft from  creat_crafts
  • Its A Girl 12×12 paper collection by First Edition
  • Ribbons and bows from my stash
  • Stickles
  • Glossy Accents
  • The pink flowers on the cover are coloured using alcohol markers Flower trim braid from bonanza-craftmart
  • Pink & White Polka Dot Lace Trim
  •  Pink silk flower with pearl and diamante centers Angelab1937

Just a few photo’s of some completed projects

Hi everyone, This going to be short and sweet as I’m still ill. Will be seeing a neurologist. I’m not crafting very much lately, just don’t seem to have the energy, takes me longer to wrap my mind around what I want to do, struggle to remember how, lose words and concentration. Thank you all for liking my posts and following my blog.

 

  1. A  refillable pocket note book

2. Faux leather journal and pocket made using vegetable glycerine and Kraft cardstock technique I learned on youtube.

3. Baby boy gate fold mini album made as a surprise for a friend. It was a Prima ready assembled album that I gutted, as I didn’t like the hinge system and 1/4inch thick coaster like pages it had.

4. A requested baby girl album currently in the works. Struggling to do it but I have 3 months before the baby comes to complete it.

 

All the best and have a great weekend x

Recent Craft Creations/Inspirations

 

Hi Everyone, Just wanted to share this feminine, single signature, Junk Journal I made a couple months ago and gifted to the Papworth Trust Charity. I initially had problems getting a true print of the images, they kept printing too dark. After much fiddling with the saturation n  things on my laptop, I got a print I could live by the time I decorated the front cover.  The digital design collections are beautiful. The products I used are listed below.

 

  • For the cover I used digital collage sheet Shabby Dreams from  KristieArtDesigns, the cover decoration is Elegant Ladies also by Kristie; and a journaling card from the Butterfly Delight collection by ARTYmaze.
  • The digital designs and ephemera collections used throughout are by KristieArtDesigns, ARTYmaze and Tsunami Rose which can be purchased on https://www.etsy.com.
  • The bulk of the pages I used are printer paper colored using Momento inks, Brusho by Coulorcraft, a butterfly stamp, doilies, and Journal Refill paper.
  • The Journal refill paper, not currently pictured is from Bookshell a store on Etsy
  • I also used a clear glitter brush pen by Spectrum Noir

My next post will be another baby album after that I’m not sure when I will post again as I have been ill for a few months and am awaiting results from blood tests.

All the best,

Kerrie

 

Recent Craft Inspirations/Creations

Hi Everyone,

It’s been awhile as I’ve not been well. Freezing temperatures here in the UK are causing me a lot of joint pain Thank you to all of you who are following my blog posts. I hope you’re all well and keeping warm.

I’ve finally completed the 71/4 x 71/4 baby girl album using a digital paper collection from Nitwit Collections and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little door knobs are by  Tim Holtz, I think. Since then I’ve worked on  some smaller projects.

Next I made a place card using roses , lace and flat back pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. On the back I inked some plan white cardstock and used strips of the same pattern paper I used on the front. I’ll add the name of the paper collection later.

After watching I don’t know how many videos on vintage junk journals I decided to try and make one in vintage 1950’s vintage. I was a bit ambitious with 3 signatures. I can’t remember the name of the paper collection I used. I’ll dig it out and add it later. Some things are from my scraps, I also coffee died some paper and stamped it with butterflies. I used dollies from my stash.

After discovering digital design paper artists on Etsy I decided to have a go at a single signature journal as a gift for a friend. The bulk of the papers are dyed using coffee, Momento inks and Brusho by Colourcraft. I also used some of the Ideology Wildflower paper collection by Tim Holtz.  Journaling pages and ephemera are from TsunamiRose, they can be found on Etsy. I used the Geared up stamp/die sets by Sheena Douglees which can be found on eBay or from the Crafters Companion site. After finishing it I discovered a seller Bookshell on Etsy that sells Journal refill paper. I’ll list the link below. It’s lovely paper available in white or cream, very reasonably priced. I will be posting pics of another  single signature journal with the paper in it shortly.

 

That’s all I have for now but I’ll be posting another baby album soon. I’ll update this post with more product information shortly. On of these days I might post a YouTube video….maybe.

All the best and have a great weekend,

Rescent Craft Inspirations/Creations

Hey everyone, It’s finally finished. The first in a series of handmade 6×4 mini baby albums I’m making is complete! It took a little longer than expected as I didn’t have enough pink ribbon and couldn’t find it locally in the width I needed. I ended up bidding on a job lot of different coloured reels of ribbon. Not bad for £17. It should last me for months. Now if I could just decide who to give/send it to. I have 5 more to make. two baby girl and three baby boys(I think)

I have listed the supplies and products below. Hope you like what I’ve done.
