Guest designing for Calico Craft

Hello everyone. I am excited to share that I have been invited to be guest designer for Calico Craft for the month of August. Today's project is a little mini made with two beer mats for covers and the inside pages are made from Kraft Card. The papers I used are from Graphics 45 A Ladies' Diary.
Here are some further images from the inside of the mini book




For full instruction on how to construct this mini, please head over to the blog and of course if you leave me a comment that wil be much appreciated!! Oh and if you don't know their shop, you should check it out, they have some great stuff particularly for people who love altering stuff!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
