Memories, altered notebook for Calico Crafts.

Hello everyone and thanks for dropping by!
Today is just a sneak peek day I'm afraid to say
To see the full project and a step by step of how I made it, please head over to the Calico Craft Blog. If you have been there lately, you will need to refresh the page to see the latest project. It's a Wordpress blog and that seems to be the case with Wordpress.... Anyway, I would love it of course if you took the time to have a look and tell me what you think. Hope you are having a creative week and I will be back tomorrow with another project for the latest challenge of A Vintage Journey.

Lovely cover, dear Astrid! I love the crackle and the cute little birds. There we can see: it don´t need too much embellishing to look beautiful :)
Have a nice day!

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!
