Just because...

Two posts in a week?  Blimey!

Well, I've been trawling Pinterest a lot for inspiration, and I've seen a few variations on this design.  Of course, when I'm *looking* for it, can I find one?  No, of course not!

The idea is simple but, having just bought some 8x8 bases for another project, I decided to think big!

The paper strips are the off-cuts of the mats on my diary pages, and the flower is a docrafts Big Bloomer flower from the same capsule collection, but heavily embossed with UTEE to give an almost metallic finish.  Looks fab, and was fun to make a card just because!

New Year's Resolution

I will organise my stash - and use it!
I will get cards done in advance and not at the last minute!
I will update this blog again!

In an attempt to work towards all those goals, my I present my last project of 2013/first of 2014?

Using a mix of old stash that needed used, some new docrafts papers and tags, and playing on my new Sizzix Eclips, I have created a birthday book.  

Now, it's by no means "finished" as I plan to double it up as a sort of journal/scrap book and add memory bits to it during the year, but it's ready to get started.

So, with the first birthday in my calendar in February, let's use January to get organised!
