Busy, busy, busy....

Last week I had so much to do that there really were not enough hours in the day for me.

Firstly I had the layouts for the MCC monthly crop:
I have added my journalling since the pic was taken. Doing a xmas layout made me realise just how bad my last 2 yrs xmas pictures are. We mostly took videos. This year will be better :)

Then I had a card to do for the Paperplay Challenge:
This card was fun to make and only being allowed to use pink and white was definately interesting.

Another card to accompany a Baby Boy book:
Pretty simple, but I like it :)

Anther couple of books for the Craft Fair on Sunday next:
I love the soft colours on this book.
This is the first time I've used my cuttlebug butterfly die

This one still needs a bookring (can't believe just how many I've gone through!!) and just a little something on the front to make it stand out.

I have some more books to finish off this week, so it will be another hectic one!!

Last but not least :)

I've been so sick this past week and just couldn't get enough motivation going to post here. Thankfully I am feeling much, much better now. Anyhooooo, this is the last book from the order of 4.

I really enjoyed making them, and now I'm gonna bury myself in making more for the craft fair in Castleknock on Nov 30th! :)

Dreaming of a Pink Christmas??

It was with apprehension that I started this book using the Fancy Pants Happy Holidays papers. I'm not a fan of the "Pink+Christmas" combination and had never worked with it before now. I was VERY pleasantly surprised at how much I did like them once I got started. The colours are funky and a nice break from the traditional red/green/gold.

So that's #3 completed. Now it's time for me to take a break, clear up my craft supplies, pack my case and hop on a plane to Amsterdam for the weekend!!! I'll be back on Monday (probably as sick as a small hospital!!) to start on #4. And you know what... I'm missing my craft knife already ;)

Christmas Album

I got the Wassail xmas album completed :) It's the first in an order for 4 I have to get out this week. #2 is also almost complete. TBH the Wassail is not the easiest of papers to work with, some are more 'vintage-y' than others and it's like they should be in 2 different packs... but I think they worked well together nonetheless....
