Olde Curiosity Shoppe Album

This weekend a group of friends got together at mine to make this album using The Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers from Graphic 45  I had everything prepared for them to assemble the pages and decorate to their own taste  It was a gorgeous day so we were able to have lunch in the garden and when they left there were just finishing off bits to do  I used my book to hold some of the many photos taken at 'The making of Harry Potter' at the Warner Bros. studio tour (which is absolutely fabulous)  Linda showed me her fabulous finished book today and I am looking forward to seeing the others  The papers were from Calico Crafts Here

Queen of my Heart

This heart with a sturdy hook is from Calico Crafts and I gave it a red white and blue makeover for the queen's jubilee next month  I used acrylic paints for the background spongeing stencilling and splattering (great messy fun)  The stamped image is on tissue and added with mod podge - although the heart has a smooth flat surface I played safe by stamping it to craft tissue first with some subtle colouring once it was dry  The little flag came with some cake cases which was the right size then I added the clock face and spinner which also had added acrylic paint  The words queen of my heart are in an old fashioned typewriter font supplies can be found at Calico Crafts

Pat's pencil box

After making one box for a swap I decided to make another or myself - along with some co-ordinating pencils
For this one I started by painting the box instead of using scrapbook paper
