Hi Peeps,
Well I have been busy tweaking my craft room yesterday and today,
I am trying to create more space, for more stuff and it is proving
difficult to say the least. You know how it is when you really should
get rid of some stuff, to make way for new stuff, but you just can't
bring yourself to part with anything.
So there is no pic of my work desk today,but thought I would share
what I made on it recently.
This is a birthday book I made for Emma a lovely friends 21st Birthday.
She is  a Tattooist, who does her own art work and is making a name
 for herself in the tattooing industry.
All the papers are odds and ends from my stash and all the sentiments
were done on the computer.
I really like how it turned out.

It doesn't show up too well in the pic, but this paper is beautifully embossed and glittered.

Bought these lovely flock and rhinestone letters at the NEC.

I love this paper.

Papermania buttons on this page.

On this page I used a butterfly fabric and cut out a few of the butterflies stuck them to card
    and decoupaged them.

I used  the Spellbinders labels 11 die for all the sentiments.
I was having a last look at  my efforts before leaving to give Emma her gift when I noticed I had missed an 'S' off the word  'hopes', ******, I thought.!!!  My husband said it made it unique....... Bless!

This is beautiful flocked wrapping paper.

.  I used the Cuttlebug  Happy Birthday embossing  folder on the front and back covers.

 I used  the Spellbinders labels 11 die for all the sentiments.

Hope you all had a great day WOYWW ing.
Thanks for peeking

  4. What a stunning beautiful birthday book. I wish I was going to be 21 again! Oh yeah...I'm still only 19 so that's okay ;D
    All the little details are must have a lot of patience Lottie.
    Enjoy you're desk hopping and thanks for calling into my place and leaving such lovely comments.
    Have fun ;D

  5. Hi - thanks for stopping by my desk. Know EXACTLY what you mean about the Moroccon accents, I felt the same and am NOT disappointed. Was a bit concerned that the lace die would be too long for my Cuttlebug standard plates, but would you know it fits diagonally :) The little star flowers were an added bonus for me. Anyway enough of that, your mini book is superb, the cover pages embossing is just right and the sentiments lovely. Bet she is bowled over with it. BJ#24
