Phindy's Place Challenge...Love Birds Bookatrix...

Hi, hope you have all enjoyed your weekend...mine has been eventful...but thought would forget all about it and do some crafting whilst I cant sleep...couldnt concentrate on that so blogging it is instead.lol...

Have made a few cards over the last days that thought could enter some of them into challenges...so here goes!!!

My 1st offering is a ruby wedding bookatrix that I made for an order(for a new customer)...I have given it to her and she she loved it...I seem to make quite alot of these and get a bit fed up and run out of ideas what to do but sshhhh dont tell anyone.lol...


Completed bookatrix with stand












On the front pages...a Digi dowload called Love Birds its from Phindy's Place she has a fab collection of stamps so if you dont want to spend dont look.lol...I coloured the birds and flowers with promarkers and finished with a dab of glossy accents here and there...backed the image with a heart made with card from my stash, using the clebrations embossing board from the glitter girls, I ran it through the swiss dots embossing folder for cuttlebug...the red heart is made in the same way and decorated with peel offs...the background card is pretty doodles download from Pink Petticoat...ribbon and gems from stash

The back pages again using the Pink Petticoat download...A duffex die cut decoupage from my local craft shop, the sentiment printed from the computer and cut using oval scallop nesties and run through my cuttlebug again, the gorgeous flowers were from my stash, think I picked them up in The Works and Hobbycraft...I stuck them using silicone glue and OH BOY! did I suffer from a headache so got online the next day and stocked up on the pinflair glue gel...does the same job with NO smell...gems are papermania ones...just another one of those essentials that I cant live without...

The box is made with...Red card from stash, I stamped the lid with Inkadinkado Clear Stamps - Artistic Flourish stunning stamps bought again at a local craft shop, stamped using a versamark ink pad and then heat embossed with clear gloss embossing powder, I used the illusion board from the glitter girls and for once I managed to get the perfect box...unusual for me cause I often have to chop a bit off here and there.lol...the boquet of flowers I bought many moons ago from a seller on ebay...arent they just adorable so realistic with the florists celo wrapped round them...decorated with ribbon from stash...made a border using Martha Stewart Valentine Lace edger punch...stuck the cut out hearts to add some dimension, sentiment is from the duffex die cut set...

hope you like it and thanks for looking...

Hugs Jackie xx
