My Steampunk Book

Another wet weekend for many, hope you had a good time anyway I made the most of it by playing in my craft room at the very top of the house.

I have been working on my Lifebook 2013 pages and because of the house move and opening the shop I am so far behind in fact I have just finished a page for February.

We have just had two wonderful workshops, here are some pictures of the book we made using Graphic 45 paper and a Seawhite Journaling book.

The cover we made from scratch then painted and aged with cogs and clocks from Tim Holtz Sizzix dies and a Optical lens from Jamie's collection.

We made tags and pockets for journaling or photo's. You can just see a fine gentleman stamp from Paper Artsy HP1108.

Hers is a card slipped behind a band.

The card open with another area left for photo's. It is edged with Wild honey and Vintage Photo Distress Inks these colours compliment the papers beautifully.

The pockets are large tags folded over with two different size of tags inside. All cut from sizzix die's.

These are stamped with sentiments from Stampers Anonymous CMS110 Stuff to say.

The little tag on the tag has been embossed with a Sizzix Texture Fade Diamond Plate, there are two in the pack the other is Riveted metal which we also used on the front cover.

The fine script stamp is on CMS087 Shabby French another great stamp From the Tim Holtz collection, it is a older stamp but so useful. Because it is a background it was stamped using Wild Honey Distress Ink.

Another of the stamps from CMS110 Stuff to say, this time with Archival Ink. The quote is pretty apt I thought.

A little book and edged with the Sizzix Lace Die.

And inside a picture of my lovely Mum. 

A page with two pockets and the stamps are from CMS087 Shabby French and the diamond pattern from CMS063 Mini Muse.

The edge of the page was cut using the "Ornate" on the edge die.

Another little book cut from the Matchbook Die.

And because I don't like to waste anything all the little bits have been used to fill this book.

I really enjoyed this workshop and if anybody is interested in taking it, let me know and I will run it again. There are so many pages in the book I could even do some new pages.

Have a good crafting week and as it's not fit to go out in the garden I am going to stay in the safety of my crafting room with my trustee crafting companions Jack and Bru. (who don't pinch my scissors).

Bye for now Sharon

There is a workshop on Saturday The Altered Photo Canvas. You can bring along your own photo on a memory stick if you would like to do something different. if you are not sure check with Jamie (the technical department).
