Kitchen Rolls Mini Book

Hello Everybody

I did not make any new stuff recently but I thought it would be high time that I share mini book I did out of empty kitchen rolls for my swap partner Suzie. Suzie and myself agreed to do shabby style mini book kit, by decorating the first page (the cover) and keeping the rest of the book simple and adding few matching embellishments.

So this is my cover:

and few pages inside, I could not resist but put few flaps and one extra mini accordion book inside:

And as I said this is a kit so there are few hand made embellishments I added:

and close up of my hand made roses:
And finally I needed something to put a note on so did this tag:

So for the mini book I used Pink Paislee papers, Tim Holtz - Sizzix dies, Hero Arts stamps, Tim Holtz Ranger distress inks, bids and charms are by Cousin, Doilies are made by my Mum long time ago and pearls are from my stash - old stuff.
For the roses I used pink handmade mulberry paper, EK Success punches, Tim Holtz die and distress inks. If you are interested in having go with these yourself there is very good tutorial on You Tube  by Jannaviles here and finally the tag is made using Glimmer mists and distress inks, stamps and Hero Arts and Autumn Leaves and one of my roses and butterfly, again made with Tim Holtz Sizzix die.

I hope you like this, Suzie loved it anyway.

Have a nice day

Hello Nanny Goat - more summer pages

Greetings to all my readers

It is getting very cold over here and everybody is getting into Halloween spirit and there are sings of Christmas everywhere as well.
I am trying to worm up myself buy scrapping summer and even Easter photos (LOL). I have one page for you today that is based this time on the pencillines.com sketch. Pencil Lines is one more great sketch blog and I would advise everybody to visit it, they do new sketch every week and have fab designer team.
Now, this is my take:

Once again I used Fancy Pants papers, Tim Holtz dies, inks and stains. Background was a plane white paper once. I took a stamp that I had for ages, but never seen ink before, stamped and heat embossed (not seen very well on the photo) then I inked the paper, I am very pleased with the results. Funny thing about this page is that I started off to do clean and simple page, ended up with this messy background, but then what 'clean and simple' has common with farm, LOL?

And one close-up:

Oh, it seems I am not even late to enter this into RAK challenge, so I will try to do that.
That is all for today, I hope I will write something soon again. Have a nice day.

Hi Everybody

One quick post today. I managed again to make a page for Once Upon A Sketch Challenge and I thought I better post it on time and play along. Now I just realized that I did not meet the journalling criteria for the challenge, suppose to write something about 2 events from the past week and I didn't do that. Never mind I still like my page and I hope you will like it too.  Next time I will refresh my memory about the rules when doing writing.

This is the newest sketch:

And my page is: 

 And now few close-ups:

I used once again one old Fancy Pants kit, flowers are hand made using Sizzix and Spellbinders dies, tiny tags are by Sizzix (Tim Holtz),  buttons are Basic Grey, pearls and alphas from my stash - some old no-name stuff, border is made using MS punch, ribbon is by Pink Paislee. 

What a coincidence, just found a new challenge blog: Bird is the Word by following Helen from Scrap Addict and the word is 'Together'' for the current challenge. So I will enter my page into this challenge, it is not that I think I have a winning page, but it is fun doing those.

Thanks again for reading my blog and have a nice day.
