Ticket book

My friends over at Out of the Hat Creations have come up with a little book challenge something I have been meaning to have a go at for ages so no excusses as I am suposed to have more time now I'm not working ha ha where does the time go that's what I want to know ! anyway back to the book
I have used to mountboard tags from the Atristic Stamper inked with dylusion spray inks as are all the pages on the inside, I have used washi tape to bind the back and front together .
Inside I have made the pages by folding the card and cutting with the ticket die and used one of the Kanban ticket stamps plus a selection of my tiny stamps I keep in a box so they don't get lost

Tando and Fabric

I've been following the Tando challenge for a while now mainly cos I love the creations  that Karen makes, this it the first time I have joined in but I'm sure it won't be the last now I have more time on my hands.
The challenge is to use fabric, so I've used canvas for my tag (the sort you buy on a roll) and dylusion sprays in lemon, grass, london blue and crushed grape with the Tando flower mask. The flowers are out lined with dots made with liquid pearls and silver paint for faux stitching around the edge , all the embelishment are stuck down with the cosmic shimmer acrylic glue even the friendly plastic leaf .

I just had fun and made something that pleased me :) so hope you like it too

All buttoned up

The fab girls over at Out of the Hat Creations are asking that we use buttons and I have had so much going on in my life that this is the first time I have join them.
I really enjoy making these bracletes and made a few with beads but them though I wonder if buttons would work well it did and these are vintage glass ones with shanks I've had for years I have a real thing for buttons and have more than I could use in a life time
If anyone would like this one I'm open to offers :) just email me
