I hope you have enjoyed your weekend ..... I have been working on this little project over the weekend. I just made it because I felt like it ... sometimes that's the best way, for once I am really pleased with the results, I think I may save it as I think it would make a great gift for someone who is moving away. ( I should warn you now this is a very picture heavy post ... I hope I don't bore you all !!!!
I found these address books In Trago Mills when I was on Holiday in Devon, they were really cheap and I thought they would be perfect to alter ... I have used "Sugar Nellie - Simply Sassy"stamps, coloured with copics. The paper is " Tilda - Kitchen Garden" and then the sentiments are stickers from "K&Co" that I bought forever ago.
I made little pockets inside the address book, to store some cards in ...... and also a little pocket for stamps ( I have to say I think that is my fav feature)
As I was making a whole stationary set, I decided to stamp the envelopes as well to give a whole co-ordinated look.
I have just noticed that I have added no white Highlights on this picture ... I will be off to correct that as soon as I have finished this post.
I am not quite sure how a key chain relates to a stationary set ...... I just took a notion, however I suppose if it was a moving gift it could work ?! I used a Tim Holtz facet and put the sassy image behind it ..... All the lovely beads are again a purchase from my holiday in Devon in March ..... there was the most beautiful jewelry making/bead shop there and I felt all inspired .... I have to admit I do not have a clue what I am doing, I am just kind of fudging it and hoping for the best .... Unfortunately I have silver findings and then black wire for the beads ????? so at the mo I am having to work with what I have, it is annoying me so I may have to go back and alter it!!
Well that's all the pictures over now ... so thanks for staying with me, and looking at my work, it is much appreciated.
