My First Commission!!

Some of you may remember that a few weeks ago I showed a "Stack the Deck" vintage mini scrapbook. Well after showing it here someone contacted me to ask whether I would make one for her and to name a price. Well of course I said yes..... after all I love doing this sort of thing anyway.

Here are some of the pages for the album.







I still have to do the covers and the tags. She is going to add her own photo mats and photos obviously and embellish the whole thing the way she wants. Fingers crossed she will like the pages... Mine was made using the Printery Collection from Prima, but that one seems no longer available in the UK. (If anyone knows where to get it in the UK, please let me know!!!) So this one uses the Almanac Collection, another absolute favourite of mine.

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!
