About Me

Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Playing making Embellishments

Good Morning All

I have been playing around making some embellishments for either cards or altered projects.
These are teeny weeny book charms, but with another charm attached to the spine.
There are loads of tutorials on You Tube.

You can see here that they measure about 3cm x 5cm.

Some are a litlle bit smaller.

I have used one on an altered picture frame I have made and will show you in afew days.

Here are some charms I have made to attach to the spines.

There are about 4 pages in each book.

They could even be made with plain paper pages and you could write your own messages inside.

Little Love Notes !!!!

I wanted to use papers for the pages that had words or music on.

I found this paper in an LOTV paper pad from the Nitwits Collection and thought it suited the purpose perfectly
