Good Morning and welcome to my Masterpiece Monday. No before you ask I’ve not gone mad I am just super busy working on a HUGE commission and so I didn’t get around to posting yesterday. What with that and half term it is a crazy place in Skilton Towers but please bear with me!! If I go silent for a couple of days I am still here, just locked in my craft room working away!!
So today I am going to share with you a notebook, that is very simple to make but very effective.
12 x 12″ Paper – Sycamore Street – Stampin Up!
Cardstock – Blue, Purple, Orange and White
Mason Jar Stamp – Stampin Up
Alphabet Die – Abracadabra – Do Crafts
Take your blank notebook and cut a piece of Blue cardstock slightly smaller so that it sits on the notebook.
Take a piece of patterned paper and trim just smaller than the Blue cardstock so that it can be mounted on top.
Take a piece of White cardstock and stamp the Mason Jar onto it. Using the framelet die cut out the mason jar.
Cut a scallop and a scallop circle large enough to place the Mason Jar on.
Punch out lots of butterflies in matching colours.
Attach all of the above to your blank notebook.
Add your chosen text.
I love hearing from you all so please feel free to leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions about this or any of my other creations!
Welcome to a very late Masterpiece Monday!! I have been busy having a refurbishment on the craft room so have not managed to get back in there until today! I will be sharing pictures of this later in the week but today I would like to share a large decorative Peg I have made for Valentines Day. This would make a lovely gift to give a partner with a picture of the two of you or the children.
Take the peg and cover both sides with your chosen patterned paper. Remember that to use your peg as a photograph or note holder you will need to stick any patterned paper upside down as this is the way the peg stands.
Print and colour the image, I have coloured mine using Promarkers.
Die cut a circle and a scalloped circle and mount the image onto these.
Add ribbon to the back of the scalloped circle. Adhere a bow with Twine and a punched Heart to decorate.
Cut another Scalloped Circle and adhere to the back to cover the workings.
Using adhesive attach the circle with image to the peg.
I always love hearing from you so please leave your comments. If you have any questions please contact me.
Do you remember I made a Sticky Note Holder a couple of weeks ago? Well today I am making some magnetic pegs to use on your fridge to hold notes etc. They match the Note Holder perfectly so would be great to put together and give as a gift. If you are using these to give as a gift why not display them in a clear poly bag to give it that professional finish?
