About the Artist

My photo
I just love crafting, the messier the better. Have been crafting all my days but in the last 16 years have been doing more and more. My obsession began with making cards and from there I have tried many different forms of crafting. Great fan of Tim_Holtz love all his products would love to own them all one day. Graphic 45 is another must have for me and again would love to have it all. And then there is Prima well what can a girl say, just simply stunningly beautiful. Really enjoying the vintage, shabby chic and steampunk styles which are very much in vogue at the minute. Love Lace and Pearl trim, you might be seeing a fair bit of it all on here. xx Please keep calling past and enjoy my crafting journey with me. Great Big Huge Hugs Becca xxx

Handmade Notebook

Hi all, I have just finished this wee handmade Notebook for my Nana's 82nd birthday tomorrow!

I stitched pages in using Coptic stitching and made a book board using recycled card from some furniture packaging we had after putting together furniture in our kids bedrooms.

I covered the board in some lovely scrapbook paper from my stash and then added some lace gathered and sewn to look like a flower topped with a button and then added some roses, pearls and a ribbon bow. I also glued in some organza ribbon in the inside to tie it closed.

Here's hoping she likes it :-)

Thanks for your comment for the Pixie Blog, here's the answer to your question.
Thanks for your enquiry and check out the pixie blog often, if we ever do a DT call, it will be there.
