A Very Wet Bank Holiday -

So - I made the most of the atrocious weather by making the covers for my September Journal. It really has been a very poor day as far as the weather is concerned but I have to admit to having fun! I can "faff" for England so it really doesn't matter what the weather does. I was going to use the kit I got from Shimelle for this class - but as I was looking for the kit I found a whole stack of 7 Gypsies papers - so I changed my mind!!
I haven't yet made my mind up about binding it - so don't know if I will go with book rings or bind-it-all. I cut all my pages as well & have put all my intended stash together in a zip loc baggie. I feel very virtuous now I might tell you.
The butterfly is a Stampin' Up stamp which I stamped all over the cover in rosy pink ink. I then stamped the butterfly in the same ink, and chocolate brown ink, on scraps of paper before cutting them out and mounting them with 3D foam tape. I covered a small tag with paper before adding the chipboard letters for the "new" which I coloured with the rosy pink ink. The small text is computer generated, printed on patterned paper and the font is Odalisque.
I am pleased with the result and am now looking forward to the class starting.
Please leave a little comment if you stop by.

Learn Something New Every Day

The amazing Shimelle has once again invited me to participate with her September Class Learn Something New Every Day. It's great fun - and if you fancy joining in do go to Shimelle's Learn Something New Every Day Class. Must admit that I usually do manage to be creative when I take note of Shimelle's prompts - just not very good at sharing my pages as time runs away with me and though I make - I don't upload. Joining in on the forum does help me though - so maybe this year I will do better.
I am off now to design my covers for this year. Will post pictures later.

Keird - - Craft - -

And a new blog for me - -
- - and I wonder if I have bitten off more than I can chew. I don't seem to be able to find time to keep this one up to date but here I go again creating another! (DOH as Homer Simpson might say!)
But perhaps here I will manage to just upload pictures of my crafty makes. I will PROMISE to try my hardest.
This is a page I made in a Circle Journal where the theme was Black & White.
