My Kraft Journal

Hi folks,

I want to share with you my latest project which has taken a couple of days. I was surfing the net looking for copic colour charts and came across a blog via Splitcoaststampers featuring a wonderful book which you can see here. I thought it was brilliant idea and just looked so loved, like you wouldn't want to be without it.

Anyway I decided to give it ago. Wanting to put my Copic colours in I couldn't just use any old notebook so made my own then I can print out my charts on the Ryman's paper and add to as and when.

I started with two 8x8 pieces of board and covered with the gorgeous Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper (which is embossed in places so when you ink over it the embossing resists the ink) and lined with Papermania Kraft, the inside sections were made with card from packaging and again covered. The file tabs were cut on my Cricut.

I inked everything with distress inks in Fired Brick, Barn Door, Rusty Hinge and Dried Marigold then covered in Tattered Angels Pearl glimmer mist. Decorated the pages with Tim Holtz dies and made some pockets for the back of the flaps.

As I said I plan to keep all my colour charts for easy reference, coloured images and all that other stuff we should write down instead of trying to remember where we saw it.

ATC's - Trees

Morning all, don't know about where you are but the sun is shining here, what a nice change. Let's hope it's here to stay a while - at least till after our camping trip at weekend.

Anyway, I've been enjoying making ATC's and have been asking around about places to swap when someone suggested The Stamp Man who run a monthly swap.

The theme for June is trees

So from left to right here are the details:

1. Distress Ink background in Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade. Clarity stamp, embossed with metallic WOW powders.

2. Distress Ink background in Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Fired Brick. Artemio stamps.

3. Distrss Ink stain backround in Vintage Photo then embossed with Tim Holtz tree bark folder. Leaf cut out tin can with TH Tattered Leaves and coloured with Alcohol Inks.

This is the first time I've joined in so hope they are ok.

A busy bee

As per usual my blogging is rather somewhat lacking.

I have however been busy over the weekend, a friend has asked me to do a stall at a summer fair with her and her Pandora bracelets. It's in two weeks time so I am trying to make a variety and if I get time I want to make some gifty things as they always seem to sell better than cards.

Here's the first few

At some point I need to think about my Father's Day cards, I'd much rather be doing nice girly ones.
