The first LO I got finished was using a My Mind's Eye Sketch.
Pixie Dust Paperie,the papers and buttons are Lost & Found,I misted the DP with the Tattered Angels which was also in the kit. I made a flower shape with some brown tulle as an embellishment. I love this kit !!!
Libby,Jackie and I all took the new Page Maps 2 book to the crop so we chose one sketch and all did a LO using that sketch.
I used Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934,the frame is from Tattered Angels inked with TH Distress Ink and the alphabet is My Minds Eye Lush. This photo of me makes me laugh,my Gran and Godmother took me to London for the day,my clothes give away I was bought up in the 70's.
Lastly I just wanted to show you these sewing jars I made for Libby and Rach as part of their Christmas present. I saw them in Sew Sunny Homestyle book by Tone Finnanger and thought they would look really pretty in their craft rooms.
They are very easy to make all you need is a Kilner preserving jar where the lid has a removable centre,cut a piece of card the same size as the lid.Cut a larger circle of fabric and sew a row of running stitch close to the edge,lay the fabric over the card and add a layer of cotton wool in between then pull the thread to gather the fabric.Push the fabric covered card under the lid rim. I then glued a piece of coloured card to hide the gathered fabric card. I then made a button & pin tag and attached it with string to the jar.
You still have plenty time to enter this month's challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous,all you need to do is use at least 17 buttons on a card or layout,so get those button tins out and give it a go!!!
Have a good weekend
