Vintage birthday record book

Hi there,

Today I have put up a tutorial on my you tube channel for a gorgeous vintage birthday record book.  You can make it as a simple little mini album if you wish though ,it is really easy to make and takes a minimum of time to create but looks stunning. .  Great for a christmas or birthday gift.
I've made mine just for lucky am I!!!!??  Makes a change to do things for myself! now I can record the dates and names on the inside pages for each month and use the tags to write down any gifts I buy through the year so I don't duplicate presents...when the tags are full I can just make some new ones.


So here are some photos and a list of materials I used


These stamps have such fine detail...

C1 -101 Imagine child

Stand up card

Hi again,

Here are some photos of the card which I have done as a you tube video tutorial.  It is a card which has a built in stand so will look really great when your friends and family display it at christmas.

I used some Visible Image stamps to decorate it and Kay and co paper, seam binding for the bow is from ribbon girl.  The die cut for the foliage and holly sprigs is a Tim holtz alterations die called festive greenery. I also stamped the Vintage image trio's script on some plain paper and matted on the back of the card (which is on the base as it stands in the picture).
The stamps are available on the Visible Image web site.......
Vintage image trio and the vintage santa

And here are the photos of the finished card...

It's also a chance for those who are interested to

    win the mini album and embellishments shown below.

As I have just passed 500 subbies on my you tube channel I thought it would be great to give away the little album I just made as a tutorial.  Have a look at it here.
It is a blank album for you to decorate as you want...add photos and journalling to it to make your own unique version.  As you can see on my work desk photo I am including some embellishments so you can create till your hearts content.

The rules for the competition are .... become a member of my blog and leave a comment on this post....Just think you then get updates and info on all my tutorials and blog posts.  You have until 30th October 2013 to enter.

So good luck to anyone who would like to join and I will now be off to Julia's site to have a look at the current work you've all been busy with this week.

Prima Romance Novel Mini album...just me me!

Woo Hooo,

Well have finally finished my Mother and daughter album at long last.  I am really pleased with the way it has come out and showcasing the gorgeous Prima romance novel papers has made it very special.  What a brilliant line this is lots to cut out for journalling and pockets, tags and tabs and a wonderful mixture of soft romantic roses and rustic bikes and typewriters, but it works sooo well  together. I bought the case at TK Max as it goes so well with the papers, so the album will be well protected inside.

So here a some photos and a link to the you tube video which shows it fully if you are interested. Link here
