I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #14

This is my DT project for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which this week is set by our lovely Claire with a theme of "ANYTHING BUT A CARD".

I decided that as I had not used my Bind-it-all for a while I would make a note book. Loving this stamped image but as stamped onto pearl card it does look better IRL.

Image: Jolly Nation coloured with promarkers
Papers: Pink Petticoat "Old fashioned girl"
Cuttlebug used to cut scallop and plain oval using nesties along with flowers
Scallop and flowers cut using funky foam
Eyelets, ribbon and brads from my stash
