I've been a busy bunny.

I've been a busy bunny these last two days. Cutting and sticking, I managed to make the first two pages of my first scrapbook. I have to put some journaling on after. The first page is at Dover and the second page is when we arrived at the Hotel in Garda I have inked  around the backing paper and stamped with my Italian script Kanban stamp.
Today I have been busy washing and ironing, when I had finished those jobs I was tired out so sat and watched a bit of tv.
This evening I have made two cards. The first one uses my new Heartfelt vintage floret stamps. I saw Sue using them on C&C, but I ordered mine from Sunrisecrafts. I just got the stamps and cut my flowers out and then shaped them with my embossing tool. I added black pearls to the centres. I stamped and embossed the trellis background and glittered it, stamped the sentiment which is one out of a set from Hobbyart.
For my second card I embossed the background on Centura pearl card, then embossed it again onto the lemon card. Cut out the oval from the center and posioned over the first layer. I then cut a medalion with out the outer edge, then cut it again with a scalloped circle die. Matted onto glitter card, stamped a sentiment in grey ink, also added a bow and some bling.
I hope you are warmer than me at the moment it's freezing here and we are awaiting the snow to arrive again. Have a good weekend and keep warm. Thanks for visiting, take care. Hugs x ChrisB


  1. Two gorgeous scrapbook pages and fab cards also. Don't how you manage to produce so many projects - I can be a couple of days on just one card.It's
    snowing heavily here and I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll be able to get to the NEC tomorrow. Stay warm and safe.
