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

Tsunami Rose Design

I created this mini album using chipboard covers and I used the stack the deck hing system, tutorial on YT by Laura Dennison Following the Paper Trail here to create the binding.  Firstly I printed out the entire Christmas Gift collection from Tsunami Rose Designs and got busy cutting and preparing all the wonderful pages ready to be using in this album.  I painted the cover in black gesso and covered using a selection of papers from the gorgeous Collection.  I edged all of the outside in Inca Gold in the Green colour.  I added lace, bling, flowers and one of my handmade stickpins on the cover.  The inside and the pages and pull out tags are all using paper from the same collection.  Each pull out I added 2 poinsettia blooms from WOC topped with a button an alternative to using a tap punch, again these are edged with Inca Gold.  I created pockets and belly bands on several pages using kraft cardstock either topped with paper from the collection or ribbons or lace from my stash and added in all the wonderful pockets and tags included in the collection.

I hope you like my creation and will agree that this paper collection from Tsunami Rose Designs is yet again another fabulous one and a real must have.  I just love the distress/aged and traditional feel to them all.
