My Christmas Scrapbook Swap

I should have taken a photo of the kit before I started cutting it up. Never mind as you can all see the goodies I got from Dawn, she really sent me some lovely papers and bits to go with it.
The red poinsettia is a fabric flower that I added along with one of the brads she sent  with some little tiny gems. I had chipboard and stickers in my kit too.

It really was easy to make as the papers she sent were all very deep Christmas greens and reds.

I covered some envelopes with the papers and used metal binder rings as well with some threads borrowed of my eldest daughter.

I keep making these Paperclip Bookmarks as they never seem to last long.
Thought I would finally manage to photo some .
I made about 16 this morning and I just happened to find the wooden holder which I thought displayed them so well, the old lace is infact new found in the fabric shop as a bundle offer but think it really makes them, I didn't add my normal charms so wonder if it will make a difference.

How to do my book

These are the photo's of my latest Mini book. I used some items I got from a swap, we had a great mixture of items, and next time I will post a picture of the set as it arrives. I just admit I am addicted to making these little books, and everyone seems to love them, they are not hard to make as it's a very simple fold.

Cut a 12" of scrapbook paper at 5" 4" and 3"

Take one of the strips and fold it in half , then just fold the top 1 1/2".

I used 3 colours of card. That all match mine were all blue.

I then just use a sheet of scrapbook paper and add mats and layers to each page.

I really do like adding stripes of silver or white and often cut a square of card into 2 triangles to make corner decorations.

Decide to start my blog once more.

I've been blog-hopping and there are some great sites out there, I just wish we had more places to visit or shop where I live as most seem to be open one day and shut the next.
