Butterfly collection

I'm never content to be doing the same thing- must be the gemini in me!!
I  have created a new line of "butterfly" paper bag albums using the last of my mariposa papers.
Loads of luggage tags (my latest obsession) and fold out flaps.
Although I think my favourite thing is the photo matts.
Which I have turned into pockets by only adhering 3 sides- so you can slip the tags underneath- neat!!
My unmounted cling on "stamp it rubber stamps" set of butterfly stamps came in last week so they also got a work out too.
I have ordered some gorgeous stamps from Stempelglede and cant wait until they arrive!!
3-5 days is wayyyyy to long :-)
So here they are- the new editions to the family.
Seriously wanting to keep the turquoise one- it's a problem!!!
have a great day all

Sneak peek- dad album and "fly be free"

These are also soon to be listed on ebay- a special sneek peek for my bloggy friends!!
what do you think??
xxL :-)

Dad album  with the new Bo bunny 'timepiece' range of papers

The cuttle bug embossing folder  cogs pattern looked a bit lost , so i distressed over the top with a bit of versa colour ink pad

Couldnt resist the need to use Tim holtz's new release stamp with the pen nibs

I have used these basic grey tags as photo matts but also as a holder for my handmade tags!! 

More of a manly style butterfly album with the first of my new HANDMADE roses!!!

Yes i know probably have gone OTT with the new roses- A HUGE thanks to my mum for showing me how to make them!! Groovy!

Lots of distressed luggage tags

I am determined to use EVERY piece of mariposa paper I possess so there are quite a few "negative" spaces for photos in this album

be you!

here's ANOTHER sneek peek!!
How lucky are you????? LOL!!
Pre ebay listing- I am so in love with the shabby chic vintage look-
6x6 inch brown paper bag album with a total of 12 pages
Damn you tim holtz for making such beautiful stamps!!!
And also bo bunny for the stunning  clock stamp and paper.
I started this bag album to show what you can do with odd chipboard embellishments for my techniques class.
Will have this for sale shortly- dont want to miss out??
email me or leave a comment!!

Handmade owl from 2 crafty chipboard- layered in kaiser craft flowers and cute metal charms for eye's. All misted with a touch of glimmer mist

probably have gone a bit mad on the shabby chic look, but i love the mixtures of patterns and tones of colours. 

I think the original pocket was from 7gypsies- these have come up a treat with a bit of distressing.

SNEEK PEEK-baby blue- boy album and card

After making the pretty baby album for a lovely lady, I have just made another with a matching card to list on ebay. But this time a baby boy theme- there will be a girl one coming soon.
So here's a sneak peek before it's listed.

paper bag album and matching flirty purse card

6x6 inch white paper bag album with NEW handmade roses !!

photo matts have an organza ribbon to slip your photo's underneath. each one has a silver charm attached. they are all embossed with either dots or a beautiful soft pattern.

extra flaps for more space along with the cutest handmade envelope :-)

cant help myself with added extra's- a library pocket and a journalling space which flips open.

here is an open version of the matching card- cute!!

The inside of the card has HEAPS of room for journalling

Brown and white Key layout 12x12 for Rema

12x12 layout- brown and white

I have stained the wooden key embellishments brown & stamped a swirl which I've embossed with "bridal" pearl embossing powder- so it's a little bit pearly and sparkley.

the photo matt is embossed wi a swirl pattern and is slightly larger than a standard 6x4 inch photo, so there will be a second"border" when you stick down your photo!!

The photo can easily slip underneath the organza ribbon. Did you see the brown pearls around the time piece clock faces?? And the extra chocolate brown hand stamped background pattern??

added pocket alteration at the bottom
