YPP Junk Mini Swap

I took part in a "Junk Mini" swap over on Your Paper Pantry which consisted of making up a mini using old stash which i am sure we all have.  Those papers which you bought years ago knowing exactly what you were going to do with but never actually did anything with....those half used packs of embellishments which remain after you have finished a project....etc.

Well, this is what i came up with.  It's based on the Laura's Envelope Accordian Mini resulting in a two-way (back and front) mini with many pockets for tags.  I used 11.5cm x 22.5cm envelopes and covered them with Making Memories Boho Chic papers.  Both front and back pages are made from chipboard.

Tim Holtz Alterations and Prima

I placed an order with Roxy and Samantha at Your Paper Pantry which i received this week.  Make sure you give them a visit as they have very good prices on their goodies, and if you can't find what you want then just ask :)  Customer service is great!

First Tag

I've completed my first ever tag, and here it is.

I started off with a manila luggage tag which i distressed with Distress Inks in Bundled Sage and Crushed Olive. Stamped the Tim Holtz Artistry Images with Walnut Stain. Glimmer misted some lace with Fall Breeze and Olive Vine. Added some Prima bling on the trail of the bird and a Prima flower to the lace. Distressed some Tim Holtz Adage tickets with Tea Stain and adhered them to the tag with some Ideology mini paperclips. Attached an Ideology mini pin to the lace.

If he soars with his own wings".

Halloween mini

Yes, i did say Halloween.....even though its April!!

I've just finished my halloween mini album which has taken forever to complete.  I got a little 'push' from 'Finish It Fridays' at  to finish  it off.  If you haven't joined YPP then go and have  a little browse, its got a great chat room, great groups and some fun swaps going on.
