These are the fairy doors I made for a swap on UKS. I had so much fun with these. I have just got back into stamping and wanted to try out the new stamps, the flowers on the front of the door. The doors are made from note book backs. I used strips of card painted with crackle paint for the door panels. The background effect on the inside is alcohol inks. I also used the inks to colour the brads and hinges to match the colour scheme. The fairy is a copyright free image found by googling, coloured first with watercolour pencils, then painted with perfect pearls on her dress, and stickles on her wings. I hope you like them. Thanks for looking.

Another swap. This time for deco pages. The theme is vintage ladies and children. I had to do a DLO and use a stamped image. Stamps are about the only thing I can think of that I only have a few of, so i just used a flourish in the corners of the pages.

A couple more pages done for the newbie CJ. That 4 out of 9 complete. I am so looking forward to mine coming home.

This is the front cover of the book I made for the mini bok swap on the crafty swappers forum (Have a look the link is on the left) each page has some type of interactivity (is that a word) like pocket pages or tag pages. i hope my swappee likes it.

My first ever fat book page swap. I loved making these and have finished way before the deadline. (Some would say I should get out more)

My first ever fat book pages using MM jounaling pad and scrummy flocked stickers I just couldn't resist on my last shopping trip.

Childrens songs was the theme chosen by material girl as she and her son have lots of fun singing together. The song is 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive. It is quite interactive this one as the fish are help in with the clip and be removed to count with if they wish.

Transport theme for Jennyin. This is the one I found most difficult and I am not really happy with how it has turned out. Might have to go and do another one.

Cosmic theme chunky page for Jo. The background is stickles blended with my fingertips (Very Messy) with beaded embellishments and pearlised paint for added uummph.

Any excuse to use my BIA. Although this is the first time I have tried anything this small. Totally inspired by Voodoo Vixen I must add (Thanks Annette). Tuppences theme is faries if you hadn't noticed.

These are the pieces I did for myself, as you can probably tell my theme is butterflies. The background is sleleton leaf stickers, they are so fine they look like Patterned paper, I really need to find some more of these. I dreww the butterfly on acetate and coloured it in with peel off pens then used a similar colour glitter glue for the sparkle. I scored the body to bend up the wing to add some dimension.

Then I did the purple theme. As purple is my favourite colour I really enjoyed doing this one. I made the background paper with a few diffferent coloured ink pads and just blended then together. I used glossy accents on the shapes to give then some shine and in the frame I poured in some seed beads and set them with dimension magic.

The last one I did was for Sixophone, the theme was my house, my mess, now as its always a mess I didnt know where to start. Anyway I decided on my craft desk as the topic as this is always a mess and if you listen closely you will hear me shouting, now where have my scissors gone. I used a wood effect patterned paper for the desk top. The paint tube is a real tube of paint, almost empty so it would lie quite flat.

40 match box drawers

Well here in another set of matchbox drawers , work in progress as you can see. I have learnt the hard way that I should have put handles on the drawers before glueing it all together. I am now trying to open the drawers with tweezers without pulling the fronts of.
