4 x4 Fairy albums to view.....a touch of something quite magical..
6x6 albums for keepsaking memories that bring joy and affirming the individual with Pure Joy Journal and All About Me.
6x6 albums with a succinct christmassy feel in the form of fairies,poinsettia's and some simple covered albums for personalising alongside the more elaborate styles with funky festive fibres and snowflake enbellishment.I am going to try to add a small slide show to show these ...


This was a very special comission.... I can only thank all involved for the priviledge of being able to prepare it for a very special person... memories are forever...touching everyones lives..
Hi just wanted to make a note that there are photographs are being added over the next few days of my ebay listings for those perhaps veiwing the blogspot for more photos, bear with me.

A snapshot of the fun in Eskmeals







I took lots of lovely photos but am always cautious about slotting them on the blogspot without asking others on the photos !I've tried to play safe with these shots and am looking forward to sharing all of then with folks that were there........

eskmeals to celebrate a very special birthday




We had a great time with dear friends and new aquantancies in the Lakes this weekend.The weather was kind to us and the coastline great to see as well as the walk around the estuary.We didn't stay still for long as the tide can creep up on you and leave you stranded.. I created a small keepsake for my dear friend to capture some memories and thankyou all for making it such a fun weekend!

We had a great girlie giggly day in Whitby alongside a walk by the sea collected drift wood for a future project and some sea worn stones and weathered pieces of glass.. love it.. beach combing what great therapy!










The inner pages have a selection of friendship quotes and stamped shrink plastic embellisments..loved these dinky images and then one book just had to be mini tags and fibres.e



These 4 x 4 albums celebrating friendship where lovely to create I think a lot of my pals will be getting these !

Poinsettia Dreams, Angel joy and Vintaged Santa Envelopes


Prototype envelopes




keepsake envelopes

Hi I've created some more of these lovely envelopes for christmas but here are the first prototypes.You can finish them with a coat of varnish and use them as paperwork keepsake storage or in scrapbook pages to store allsorts..children's school reports, hopes and dreams, moment and event memories, secrets, marriage and birth certificates the possibilities are endless..They are great to make as you can use so many different techniques.I use embossing to give different textures, coloured and mettalic spray mists to give sheen and vary colour, inks and chalks alongside stamped images and decoupage.I like to add a place to make a note of the date and perhaps a few lines to describe something if you want to on the top of the envelope.A lovely lady purchased two of these from me on ebay and was so complementary about them that I went on to create more... I'd like to thank her for that kind encouraging feedback can be so inspiring and motivating.

I made a range of All about me, cherish and joy albums for general purchase they received good feedback here are a selection.Some were paper bag style albums in 6x6 size.The paper bag design creates pouches every other page to store memorabilia in they're great.


This album was created to celebrate a time of transition.There are so many transitions in life..it was a real priviledge to have been asked to create something tailored to celebrate moving from one stage of life to another.We even used a meaningful song to link each page by carefully selecting parts of this song to reflect the other themes of each page.I've posted photographs of the album prior to it being put together, just gives a different perspective other than the completed item.
