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

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 to 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 through out 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 coloured 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.

My Art Journal page 2

So I’ve glued a couple pages together with PVA glue. Then used some acrylic paint and Distress inks and stain, drew the initial K and sealed it with some Mod Podge. I might use a stencil on it or maybe not. Either way I have to leave it for now and finish some card making projects after I clean up the kitchen from making home made tortilla chips. Its been years since I’ve had them as I can’t eat store bought ones being allergic to Sunflower oil, and they put it in so much food here in the UK. Its insane!!! Have a good one.
