Oh Boy!!! - Mini Album

Hey guys

Cute Notebooks - Easy Peasy


I wanted to share with you these cute little notebooks I have been making.
These ones I have done with a fairy shabby chic vibe going on but I have also been doing them in other style aswell.

To make these books all I have done is gather my papers together.  I have tea dyed some paper and also used some designer papers.  I have then cut them to size.  For these ones I cut them at 21cm x 10.5cm and then I folded them in half and sewn straight up the middle.  How easy is that!!!

Obviously if you don't want to wreck you sewing machiene you want to keep the. to about 7 or 8 pieces of paper but once folded it gives you enough leaves to make a cute little notebook.

I also added tucks and pockets in which you can slide in tags and Journaling spaces aswell as a few photo mats.  I have made up heaps to sell at markets but these would make gorgeous little gifts and stocking fillers.   Brag books...Gratitude journals...thank you gifts...a great little project to make and to use up some of your gorgeous paper scraps.

Thanks guys :)

Shabby Chic Teapot

Hey there crafty people
I have this cute Shabby Chic teapot to share with you.

To create this tea pot I used a 3D Laser cut kit from Imagine if...
A unique design that enables you to decorate and embellish in any style you choose.  Below is a photo of it constructed.  It comes to you in pieces to assemble but it is very easy and a lot of fun to make from scratch to the finished creation :)

Once constructed...I painted a thin layer of gesso.  I then went a covered the sides with some gorgeous shabby chic papers from Paper Arts.  I didn't have to be to carefule as I knew I would be finishing of the edges with trims and laces from my stash.

Embellishing was easy I adhered various scraps of lace..crochet doilies..trims and applique to give it that shabby feel and topped the lid off with a beautiful paper rose that I also got from Imagine if...

Upcycled Sea Themed Canvas

Hey there crafters
This week I have created this really cute canvas by re-using an old canvas and also some awesome supplies from Imagine if….

The canvas was one I had previously "tried" to create on but was never pleased with what was happening so it went to lay in my pile of messed up canvases.
As you can see I have used the back side of the canvas and created a shadow box type effect.  It didn't bother me about the staples around the edge for this particular project I think it added to the look.
You can tidy up and prep the pre-used canvases if you don't want this rustic look.

In the photos above you can see I have used some of Imagine ifs'… chipboard.  I really loved the ocean themed cuts.  I liked the raw chipboard look so didn't do much to color them just swiped my vintage photo distress ink over them.  I also used a couple of burlap leaves on which I layered up my embellishments on.

This post is part of a blog hop guys so be sure to check out all the posts to be part of the hop.

Happy crafting.
