It's a new kind of easel/tag card.

A piece in progress

In August I was the lucky winner of the amazing Tara Orr 's giveaway. I won the most amazing amount of stash, amongst it this little Bo Bunny album
Not being American I felt I wanted to alter it so I made it into a little wedding album with photo's from my son's wedding. I had great fun creating the backgrounds with paint, mists, inks, stencils and stamps. I am not really a great scrapbooker but I did enjoy embellishing the pages, here are some of them:

Crafty Christmas tags

While working on some bigger art projects which I cannot yet show, I have been relaxing doing some crafty Christmas projects in between.
All stamps from Waltzing Mouse.
The strips to make the stars with come from Vivi Gade. A tutorial of how to do these, can be found here

New kind of slider card

This time of year always seems to bring out the card maker in me. I just love making different kinds of Christmas cards. Usually I don't really like what I call "cute" cards, but I could not resist these new digi stamps from Mo Manning. Papers are Vivi Gade and Pion Design.

As you can see the main image is like a large tag that slides inside it's holder. When you pull it out you see the Christmas sentiment (Waltzing Mouse).

Here is another sample with the same idea.

Here finally is a simple easel card using the same stamp

Fashionable Stamping Challenge 6 "Anything but a card"

Here is my contribution to the latest challenge of Fashionable Stamping Challenges. I created a tealight gift box. A tutorial for this can be found here

I used Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden papers for my box and stamps from Waltzing Mouse stamps plus various spellbinders dies.

Here is a little tag still to fit in the pocket of the left side

Yet another birthday card

Autumn seems to be the time for birthday or so it seems.
Here is another card for a crafty friend whose birthday is coming up soon.
All images(apart from the central sentiment one) are either hand drawn or die cut. I let myself be inspired by the awesome American illustrator Tasha Tudor.
Here is a picture of the inside of the card

Birthday card for a crafty friend

This is a gift card for a blogger friend. I am also putting it in for Waltzing Mouse challeng 68.
Can you tell I like WM stamps? Though I have to say only the little tag has a WM stamp on it, the others are all stamps I had in my stash already and I can never remember where they were from....

The papers are old Graphics 45 bits that were still lying around. I think they are both from the Botanica bella range though the green may have been from the Renaissance collection.

Waltzing Mouse Challenge 67

This week the challenge at the WM challenge blog is to create an ornament of some sort.
As I have fallen in love with Scandinavian style Christmas things I made this Danish woven paper heart.
Papers are from Vivi Gade and the stamps from Waltzing Mouse.

Last week I was really lucky as I was picked the winner which meant I could choose a set of WM stamps. How lucky was that!

Vintage Notebook

Here is a little note book I created. I made it with stamps I have had for a very long time. I think the main image is from Oxford Impressions, but I'm not sure.

Here you can see both what the cover looks like and the inside pages. They all have this little digi stamp on that I created myself from a Dover freebee.

Birthday Card

Birthday Card
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!
