Spellbloggers post - HappyBee Birthday ...

Recently I shared a mini tutorial using Spellbinders Honey Bee die set (see HERE) and after making that card it spurred me on to make another but instead of using white card, this time I chose cream. The curious thing inside wanted to see how much different the same colours were for the end projects. The only difference I can see is that the colours look a little warmer - what do you think?

Before I begin, I must pay respects to the 'work horse' that sits besides me on my crafting space and has been it's weight worth in gold productivity wise ... my Spellbinders Sapphire machine. This is a complete and utter god send when it comes to cutting smaller dies as its quicker to use but it's overall footprint is next to nothing. I just wish it was easy to find the replacement cutting pads here in the UK ... 😔

Right, let's get going and here's the project I am sharing today ...

I have used exactly the same colours as for my first card, (see HERE) but rather than create a background, I have used the die cuts themselves.

I have used Spellbinders Tiny Sentiment stamps stamped with Nuvo Hybrid black shadow ink and chosen 2 this time. I cut all the die cuts out from different offcuts of cream card as thought it would be 1] great way of using scraps and 2] wanted to see how the colours looked on different shades of 'cream' ... as you do ...

If I was doing this card again would probably stamp the sentiments first as was a wee bit tricky with all the different layers. A black micron pen soon came to the rescue ... phew!

Right O, better get ready for my day out with mum,

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

A mini album made using the NEW keepsake from Tonic Studios - Life's Journey

On Wednesday, Jodie Johnson launched the new Life's Journey Keepsake Collection of dies from Tonic Studios on Create & Craft, which compliment the existing memory book dies. It was a huge success and sold out within the hour! I was very lucky and managed to play with the dies making samples for the show - well it was meant to be shows. For one of my samples I made a travel journal themed album with a male slant ...
