Shabby Mini flip album

Wow it is getting hot here in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.  I have been crafting non stop trying to fulfil  orders and create stock for some up and coming markets.  In between I take lil breaks and do lil projects for myself and a couple of things for my crafty friends. 
Toady I wanna show you a Mini Album I created and it only uses 1 piece of cardstock and 2 pieces of patterend paper and on top of that it is so easy peasy.  My friend Kimi told me about a great tutorial for this lil mini and I thought it would be a great lil gift to make up for a few of my crafty friends.

Christmas Cracker Blog Hop - Tasha

Hey there
Hope every one is having fun doing the blog hop.  Remember you need to visit each DT members blog to get all the secret words you need :)
If you have been keeping up with the blog you will have seen some beautiful crackers done by my fellow DT gals here at Scottie Crafts and now it's my turn.
To create the flower I used the Poinsettia Die an alterations die from Sizzix.  I cut out the 2 smallest ones with the paper from Couture Creations - A Vintage Christmas and layered them up.

To create some dimension in the flower I placed the petals on an old mouse pad and moving a stylus in circular motions I was able to get this effect  (thanks Kimi )
Pssstttt  the secret word is  "contest"
See you next week with another fun project.
Happy crafting

Altered Lace Bobbins

Here's a sneak peek at a couple of Lace Bobbins I have been altering.  My inspiration came from a friend who did some gorgeous ones and I was so blessed because my special scrappy angel sent me not only the bobbins but heaps of yummies to embellish them with.  Here is a couple of pics of the ones I have done so far but I will be back with more and a vid in a few days.


Hey there
Just wanted to post a pic of the flowers I have been making. I have used all kinds of fabrics and lace embellished them with gorgeous centres.  So much fun to make.  I love to have a flower binge every so often.
