Crafty Saturday!

I finished work yesterday and am not back till Tuesday so have a few days to get crafty!!! I made this little notepad using a gorgeous Leanne Ellis designed stamp. The pad and pencil both came from ASDA so were totally bargaintastic! I sawed the pencil in half (as it was too big for my pad!) and covered it with paper that matched the paper piecing on the notepad cover.


This next piece is made from a bamboo tile. I stuck a vintage image of a girl and horse on some backing paper then attached them to the tile. I used glossy accents (I luurve this stuff!) to coat it and give it some protection. I then threaded beads through the holes and added a jump ring so it can be hung. I've attached it to some ribbon but it could be attached to anything!


Thanks for looking


:O)

Absolutely stunning and what a great idea to cut a pencil in half to be the perfect size for your book.

I would love to 'copy' that idea with your permission.

Gorgeous bamboo tile - lovely colours and beads match perfectly
