Hi there – This week on the Artfull Crafts Blog the theme is Stocking Stuffers and Scraps. I have heaps of bits and pieces to post – but will restrict to one day at a time! I made this photo wallet for my MIL this week as she spent some unexpected time in hospital. It’s so simple and is slim-line enough to fit easily into a bag, purse or wallet. It measures 10cm x 7cm and has a magnetic snap closure (from Basic Grey). It almost looks like a little purse! I have used one of my favourite ranges from the last year (well, from all time really) Restoration from Crate Paper. The colours in this range are gorgeous. I have seen lots of heavily distressed projects using this range, but that’s not really my style, so I wanted to show it can be used for a “clean lines” project too. Needed to add the paper strip to hide the second magnet I needed for strength! These colours are just so stunning. Sepia photos were a great match! The album opens up to reveal fold out flaps containing more photos. It’s amazing how slim the wallet stays […]
I have just finished making the card set for Helen – my blog giveaway winner! I hope she likes them! I have used the Earth Love Collection from Cosmo Cricket This is such a gorgeous soft, multi-purpose collection Hopefully these represent a good all-purpose set of cards Front cover mainly uses pieces from the collection (elements, chipboard, ribbon) and a LYB clear cut sticker I have added a little notebook and a chipboard letter H for a personal touch Thanks heaps again everyone for your support I am working on heaps of stuff for the Artfull Crafts “Countdown to Christmas” – so stay tuned for some seasonal ideas.
