I actually filmed a video...but I can not get it to unforunately you guys will have to just see the photos.....sorry
Anyway my friend Nicci had her birthday last week and I decided to give her the Manilla file mini album that I had made in the summer.
The papers are from La Creme collection DCWV. I added the name using Provocraft chipboard letters that I painted gold with Making Memories paints.The little pearl and the metal butterfly were inked with alcohol ink.
I added one of my signature butterflies with beaded detail...see earlier blog(sept.20) I also made a card to match I used a sheet of paper that was flocked as is the cover of the album, with a black envelope made with my Crafters Companion I also made a creme presentation box to house the mini. I hope that Nicci likes her gift.

I would also like to say thank you to Lena for the  lovely blog candy that I received.......
Well that's all for now...going back to see what I can do with my video....suggestions (help)welcome.

a birthday card

Last week was my Hubby's birthday. I was going to make him a card from a Basic Grey card kit, but then I decided that I wanted something more personal. So I copied the shape of the Basic Grey card onto plain blue cardstock. I then embossed the front with my Big Shot using a Sizzix texture plate.I then inked the card and added Basic Grey paper. I added a current photo of the two of us on the inside
My wishes are on the pge that you cannot see.

Basic Cards

Hi there Scrappers.
If your life has been as hectic as mine, take a 15 minute break, make a cup o coffee and relax!
As I promised here are the cards that we made at our first workshop, they are very basic as the girls had never made cards before ,we did a bit of stamping, I showed them how to use Fiskars punches,and I introduced embossing with the Big Shot. I had the embossed papers ready and just demonstrated one

I used Papermania Border papers this batch is from Rasberry Champagne. We also made the envelopes!

It has started to get cooler in Athens so I thought it  was time to plant some of my favourite flowers Pansies!!! I also love these little Cabbage Plants that's what I call them as I do not know their proper name....if anybodyknows their proper name please tell me.

All over the place....

Hi there Crafty Ladies.
This week I have been all over the place! I made some new cards for my workshops but I have not photographed them yet.Will do so soon.
I decided that for today I will share with you some of my older creations. before I started scrapping I was an avid potter which, I had to stop because of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome( sore wrists).This is one of the last pots  that I made I call it the Vagina Monlogues!! I made it after the removal of one of my ovaries.        

This Manila Envelope Album I once saw on You Tube ages ago, I loved it and will be doing it at the workshops. I used LA CREME from DCWV for this. Loved how it turned out, I have not personalised it with a title will be in black lettering. Please note the binding it is Black Magic Core'dinations, that I distressesd with sand paper.

I will leave you with another project a mini hardboard album that I did for my daughters mother-in -law Ebe HBH in greek. I loved the way the flowers from the local toy shop Jumbo turned out.
