Oh my goodness its been mad round here so much to do so little time!!
I have not had much time to get any crafting done over the weekend due to house guests, don't they know Christmas is coming and I have things to make. Only kidding its great to have people to call an excuse to make and eat cake :-)
I did make a little Birthday/Address book for my sister for Christmas and I have also tried turning my hand to a little beading. I have bad hands but I managed to make a few bits for the Christmas Stockings and tree.
The Birthday Book is mainly computer generated design, I made the pages and calender with Word and printed onto fine card. The board is covered with K & CO paper and Tim Holtz Grungeboard embellishments made the closure. That is such great stuff I just love the feel of it and its so versatile. I just need to add a Title Holder and add some wording to that and its finished but here it is so far.
Instructions and files for the address book can be found here:
The Tree Ornaments are pre-bought Star shaped wires threaded up with beads and glued. The Handbag charms are just a little idea for the girls to have as an extra, hope they like them.
