Time!!! To Celebrate!!







Hello my dear friends.  I'm here to share a card made with pieces of paper I had left over
from taking a class with the lovely Clare Charvill ( My Creative Spirit) last week!!

We worked on making a fabulous Album using the beautiful Graphic45 Imagine papers.

My album is complete but I'm waiting until my head cold andvoice heals before making a walk through video.  Hopefully it won't be long until I'm back to full health.

In the meantime here is the card using those leftover and snippet pieces of card.  I also
used The large G45 Tag and Atc tag set which includes these fabulous flower dies.

My Clock came from the Square Tag die set.  This has to be one of my most favourite
dies ever!! I'm going to be using these a lot more in my creations.

Here is a close up of that fabulous clock 



Thank you so much for popping in to visit with me, I hope you'll come back and see me soon.

In the meantime have a fabulous day.

1st Junk Journal + walk through video



Hello my dears,   I'm here today to share my first ever Junk Journal

I have a large box containing lots of snippets and off cuts of 
many Graphic45 collections I don't ever throw any of this precious
paper out.!!  I've now found a way to use them all up. 

I've made many mini albums and 1 travel journal but this album was way
out of my comfort zone.  I view quite a few walk through video's over on 
you tube but believe me watching and doing are two entirely different things. lol

Any ways I've completed the task I set myself and I'm quite pleased with the
result, although there is room for improvement and I've learned from the
mistakes I made, but hey ho!!! that's what crafting is all about isn't it.
Learning and progressing, trying new genre's and most of all having fun.!!!

here is a walk through video of how I created my first Junk Journal. 
Grab a cuppa and a biscuit, I do hope you enjoy it.

from the  Fruit Salad Collection 2018. The other Tilda is a special edition
stamp that was gifted to everyone who won a prize in the first Blog Hop
