So, to start off my blog post first I must mention I am still looking for two people to join my pay it forward group-please click HERE for details.
Also my friend Geraldine is having a giveaway on her blog, you have to check it out for some great goodies-click HERE, she has an amazing etsy too so check it out!!
AND.... I see I have reached just over 75 followers-so next week I will be posting a giveaway :) so watch this space....
Last week, I posted my pages I made for a shabby chic mini swap I hosted over on cardznscrapz.com and yesterday I posted everyone their completed books & they were all so FAB! I was so happy that all the lovely ladies took the chance and joined my swap. I also really appreciate all their time & hardwork that they put into their pages & I am sure you will agree the result is really AMAZING, so thank you all & here is our completed mini.....
These are the wonderful hostess gifts I received such pretty things-I am still admiring them all, thank you ladies!
The front page I made for everyone & my post last week gives all the details on that!
I bound the books using a large 2" bookring and added lace, ribbon, fibres & this beautiful bead dangle which Timi from our group made and I attached with a Tim Holtz jump ring!
Maggie and has great stitching & gold leafing and as you can see attached to her tag is a lovely dangle!
Timi And the front here has a great pull out and a tag with Timis details on it! the cutout pocket & flowers work really well with our shabby chic look.
Aghna and this was her first crafty make! She was allowed to raid her sisters stash of course & I helped her just with the basics! This page has crochet lace, pearl string, a mulberry flower and a pearl heart centre!
Eve and on the front here you can see the lovely corset detail, the peek-a-boo lace insert, the little velcro closure with metal flower & this when opened allows you to lift the flap up and theres lovely spotted paper and lace underneath!
Geraldine and the little butterfly and photo corner are from her etsy shop HERE which I really recommend you to take a look at! You can also see some crochet lace, rik rak ribbon, A crochet tab and I love these little wooden button.
So, that's it for this week! Next week I will be putting up another giveaway-in fact I'm going to go and buy goodies for it now!
Thanks for visiting,
