I very mini album decorated with the Christmas Papers 
  "Be Merry & Bright". collections, 
Only a few days  to go till Christmas, are you ready - I am     :) 
Waiting for Santa to come here very patiently,  I am so super organised that I created a Mini Christmas Album.

Mini Album is ready to hold some of the special photos with family

Be Merry Dies
Merry Christmas Set C0724947

Layering snowflake set C0724937

I inked around the edges of all the papers.
Using the Be Merry & Bright" stamp set C0724914 , I stamped around the edges of the square die cut square, in which I cut out with a Square Nesting die.

 Using double foam tape underneath to lift the framed die cut square. 

The Album opens up - and there are places for the photos.
in the  Merry Christmas Set C0724947  There is a Merry Christmas Diecut plus another die cut with a star and leaf burst.

The album opened up fully.

Altered Playing Cards - Imaginarium Designs

Hi there everyone, back again as Guest Designer for Imaginarium Designs chipboards, with another project.
This time I altered some very over-sized playing cards and once I had decorated them, I placed them on normal C6 folded card.

I love altering items and also love vintage images to use on my cards and projects.

Here I have created 4 cards, altering some playing cards, and adding some Imaginarium Designs chipboards on them. I then applied them onto C6 cards.

Firstly, I applied some gesso to the front face of the playing cards.
The embossed with some embossing paste and stencils, stamped and adhered some washi tape.

I then altered and embossed some of the Imaginarium Designs chipboards frames and other chipboards listed below.
Here is the list of all the chipboards I used to add to my altered cards.

IDFR0004 - Swirly Frame

IDN0002 - Numbers 

Lou's Heart shapes - IDDL0015

Balloons IDT0010

Edward Relief IDT0032


Bird Cage IDT0019

Mirrored Bracket on Frame IDFR0005

Until next time, Thanks for looking :)
