Good afternoon everyone and thanks for popping in today .
As promised I am going to show you how we made the decorative book corners on Saturday.
The corner stamps are perfect for these.
I have to say that I got the idea from the lovely Lynne Hammond, I remember she did something similar a few years ago.
Thanks Lynne for the inspiration.
I decided to use an old envelope as the base...
I don’t know about you, but I seem to have so many envelopes lying around.
Obviously the measurements depend on how large you want the corner.
I decided on a five inch, by five inch..
Then I made a diagonal cut .
This forms the base of my corner pocket .
I cut two triangles of card and then stamped on them .
Next I added some colour ,
Followed by some inking and stencil work.
And then some faux stitching
This is the front and back of the pocket .
Finally I sprayed them both with Spray N Sparkle...
Just to protect the ink when handling it.
And to make it pretty .....
I do like a bit of sparkle...
Speaking of which last night I had a wonderful time with Fran ...
She made a Christmas Wreath....
We had such a lovely time together .
This is it in the day....and in the evening
You just switch the lights on.
I love it Fran and can’t wait to see it hanging up in your flat .
I have a special Christmas workshop on Saturday with more friends making more wreaths...
I am really looking forwards to it
Especially the mince pies and Prosecco ..
Tomorrow is Hazel Grove workshops...more mince pies and crafting with friends...
Oh I am so lucky...
Take care all.
