About Me

My photo
Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

It's Finally Finished!

A couple of weeks ago a little chipboard book was seen lurking on my desk in the picture I took for WOYWW.  It was a blank that I bought in sale ages ago for the princely sum of 30p (yep, last of the big spenders I am)!

Anyway, here is the finished result!  All of the pages have been covered with Graphic45 papers as I love them and I've cut out some of the images from the paper to decorate.

The front cover of the book has a message stamp from Steampunk Dreams by Sam Poole.  The flower and leaves are Studio 490  and are stamped onto Grungepaper. I found the alphabets in my stash and I've coloured everything with Distress Inks. 

These are pages 2&3.  I've used stamps from Steampunk Dreams and Vintage Photography.  I've also used the "Dream Big" stamp from the Art Houses set of stamps.

Page 4 uses stamps from Vintage Inventor and an A6 stamp set with different tickets on.

Page 5 is the Vintage Sewing Set.

Pages 6 and 7.  I've used stamps from the Tim Holtz Classics 6 set of stamps and also used gilding wax on some of the images.  The 3 butterflies are from Steampunk Dreams and the message is from Art Houses.
There's also a metal corner embellishment by Creative Expressions, some punched butterflies and paper flowers with black pearls from my stash.

And so on to the back page which has stamps from Vintage Treasures, a TH pen nib and another ticket from the A6 stamp set.  I've also put another piccie of the front page here without all the ribbon and the book rings.

It was a lot of fun digging out stamps that I haven't used for a while and hopefully, this little book will remind me that I have them!  Unless I've stated otherwise, all of the stamps are by Sam Poole at Creative Studios.

As there are so many photos on today's posting I'm going to leave the travel photo until next time.  Until then, have a happy crafty day and thanks for visiting.
