Hospital Book

Rebecca's little friend is having an operation at Great Ormond Street this week so I made her a mini book to take with her and to fill in with mummy. Pages have spaces for info about the procedure, the doctors, space for nurses to sign, photos of the ward and info on recovery.

In my typical style I thought it was on thirs and it's tomorrow so very very late night for me!!!!

What a Pile of Pants....

Literally! In keeping with my new 2013 do something declutter-y / thrifty every day ....I cleared out my underwear draw. Now, the unworn (but ill-fitting and therefore not useable) contents have become this patchwork cushion cover!! My first one :) woo hoo. I'm quite proud of it. The cushion is for my bedroom, so no unsuspecting guests will be relaxing on my sofa next to some knickers :). I cut a cardboard template to work from.

The back is made from a Gap jersey vest top which I cut up (it had gone all baggy) and I saved some blue lace from one of the pairs of knickers to trim the overlap fabric.

Jersey and Lycra were difficult fabrics but it seems to have worked!!

Canada Book

Vanessa is off on a family-holiday-of-a-lifetime type excursion and will no doubt be making a fantastic scrapbook of her time away. But I wanted to give her something to take with her, where she could just jot down what they did/ where they ate/ the weather etc each day as a reference for when she started scrapping. Here are a few shots of the mini book. I really, really enjoyed making this and did it ALL from existing stash, printing up free journal tags etc on the computer. I didn't intend to do it as a layered book with posh edges, it just happened (mainly hand cut too oo-er)

Went out for Afternoon tea today with Jan and Ruth for Jan's 60th Birthday. It was fabulous - highly recommended!! A great way to spend an afternoon off work...not often I had a cuppa so it had to be photographed!

I made Jan an exploding box rather than a card with a photo of the three of us inside.

Scrapology January Scraplift Challenge

Here is my LO for the Scrapology January Scraplift Challenge. I loved this sketch and knew exactly which pictures I'd be digging out of the box! I used up my very last adhesive crystal on this and I'm not supposed to buying anything - oh dear....!!!!

A couple more layouts - I've finished the Doodlebug Birthday kit and moved onto the Sweetheart one :) I'm not sure about the engagement LO - not used to the "white space" so feels like I need to throw something at it!
