CD Album

Made this cd album as a present for dd1 to give a friend. Pics are from the night they went to the national tv awards. I have left the journalling blank for her to fill in. Still one more to make for the other friend!

Snowman card

Made this card for dgs1, great fun to make! The snowman dangles!

Made this card for my new grandson, born on the 14th, don't think he will appreciate it!

Christmas Cards

Just a few of the Christmas cards I have made this year, couldn't resist the stamps as I love hedgehogs!

Just for Fun

Made this just for fun, an application form for a visit from Santa. Think someone was having a poke at Health and Safety!

I just stuck the form on a piece of patterned paper and folded it and decorated the front.

Book in a Box

This is a present for a friend. The box and the little album are all made by folding the paper, but it is very strong. The pics inside are all old photos of when we were teenagers, pics on one side of the album and journalling on the other side.

Easy Rider

My lo for this week's challenge on UKS. Based on a cd cover design with a film title and the use of red, black and playing cards.

Advent Calendar

These advent calendars were on sale in a supermarket. Some one on UKS decided they were ripe for altering, so I'm sure thousands are now around all looking very different. This is my attempt at one for my grandson.

8x8 lo

Another old pic, my niece aged 7. I have stamped on a transparency with white Stazon ink.

Hexagon Album

This hexagon album is made from covered mountboard, hinges are ribbon. Pics date between 1958-61 when we lived in Singapore and used to go to the swimming club.

Little book

I made this little book for my best friend of over 40 years who is in hospital. I found some very old pics of us as teenagers and thought this would cheer her up!
