Hop, Skip and a Jump

IT'S A BLOG HOP DAY - WOOOOOHOOOOO

So this one is on Concord Crush using 4 frames and a snip of those springtime papers a bit of certainly celery and some of the lovely new seam binding in rose red.  This one I did for a swap with some other demos.  The little corner stamp is from the tiny tags set.


I have a few different things t show nearly all featuring the vintage springtime papers- these I could use to paper the house - busy but oh my LOVE THEM


In fact when I was a kid I had some very similar wallpaper on my bedroom wall and when I showed my sister she knew exactly what I was going to say - ROFL

Anyway to the projects....




These were all from part of one sheet - little 4 x 4 notelets for my handbag made from one sheet with some of the gorgeous marina mist satin ribbon - this is another of my favourites.  Very simple cards again with some seam binding, snips of paper and then just a thank you stamped and punched out witht he scalloped oval and oval.  All on Very Vanilla with Rose Red highlights.  I used the tab punch to add to the end of the ribbons and the great tombow glue to attach it to the handbag - I love that glue!!


Final one for today!  This is a really easy basket - it uses just one 12 x 12 sheet scored into 9 squares, then each of the corners is scored on the diagonal pointing from the inside to the outside.  Then its a case of folding up, punch the ribbon holes and tie a bow - couldn't get faster and with these papers who needs more decoration!!  (PS this is the one that was my edroom wallpaper in pink!!)


Next in line is Linz - my roomie from convention!

If you are travelling in a different direction the person before me is Emma  who can be found hanging out here:
