Wedding Anniversary Hanging

Wow! 25 years of marriage!
 That's how long my friends Mandy and Peter have been married.  Not many people reach this anniversary these days, so its nice to see there are still people out there that are so happy together after all those years.

For their special day, I decided that I would make them a pocket wall hanging that I learned how to make at the Victoria Stamping Group I attend each month. The class was taught by a lady called Lynne from an idea that came from Jo over at Jozart, so check out her blog as there are more samples and ideas there for this  hanging and a great variety of other craft items too.
 There is also a tutorial that I set up over on my you tube channel . I'm still on a learning curve doing videos but it gives a really good idea of how to make the hangings.

For this special hanging, I decided to make little booklets to slot inside the pockets, showing pictures of their memorable wedding day. There are 4 little booklets, one of the bride, then one of the happy couple, one of he guests, then last but not least the party. I still had a few pictures left and wanted to use them, but sadly did not have enough room in the pockets, so I placed the extra pictures on the back to decorate it instead of leaving it plain. To make it into a hanger, I made a coat hanger out of heavy wire and tied ribbons onto it.

I would love to take this opportunity to say Happy Silver Wedding Anniversary to my special friends Peter & Mandy xxxxxxxx 
May you have many more wonderful years together!

Door Hanger Birthday Card

Here's a card that I made for my friend's niece.
Originally I was going to just make the card for the birthday girl to easily convert into a hanger but then I  thought,  I'd  make an extra door hanger and place it inside so this way she could hang it all year round and not just on her birthday! LOL!.
I think it works well for a 15 year old!
I also decorated the 2 sides of the door hanger. 1 side says enter and the other has her name on... Ashley. I used a Kanban sheet of card with pink spots to decorate it and added border peel offs around the edges. I also used spun sugar distress and a die cut sheet of cupcakes, once again by by Kanban. 
The stamped image is from the Tilda range and coloured with Promarkers and I added  Glossy Accents onto the crown and star that the little girl is holding. 
I then made a few of my lollipop flowers (which you can order from me if you like them and they come in a range of colours.  Just email me if you would like any.) 
I then gave the whole thing a coating of pearl glimmer mist and attached the door hanger to the card using a plastic pink paper clip which will also be handy for attaching notes and reminders.

giveaway on my you tube channel

Hi! I would just like to share with you that there is a giveaway up and running on my you tube channel. It closes 1st October and is very simple to enter, so please do check it out..... here is a direct link

Distressed Grunge Paper Mini Album

Hi, I'd like to share with you this mini album I made made by following Laura on you tube/ustream from FOLLOWTHEPAPERTRAIL. It consists of 5 pages made with chipboard and then covered with your desired papers (printed or handmade). I made my own papers using Distress Inks sponged then stamped over with various images in the theme.
On the front there is a porcelain rose I made using UTEE.
Here's an effective idea to insert eyelets and lace up the pages.
Canvas was stamped and trimmed to fit the pages, creating lots of pockets.
Different tags were decorated to add interest to all the pockets.
There are also 5 Grunge paper tags, which were cut with the Tim Holtz on the edge dies and these match the chipboard pages that were also cut with the dies.
The embellishments add interest!
I made the cogs from Tim Holtz die using shrink plastic and they reduced to great little embellishments.
The front and back covers are also made from Grunge Paper but only 1 side is covered with paper as the paper will buckle with the bend on the side that wraps round.
The closure is a Tim Holtz key hole and a hitch fastener and ribbon is wrapped round the clock. 
Do make sure that whatever you put there will be strong enough to withstand the mini album being frequently opened and closed.
Distress inks were used to give a distressed look to the grunge paper that has not been covered. It was then stamped over with Versamark ink, dried, then Perfect Pearls were rubbed over. This give a lovely effect which looks better IRL! 
All the pockets contain photo mats and journalling items. 

Pop over to my youtube channel if you'd like to see a video with full instructions for making this mini album.
