A Recylcled Book

Hiya
Today is the 2nd Magnolia DT Christmas Blog Hop.

The start of the hop is my other blog HERE

For my project I made something Ive had in mind for a while, using an old paperback book.
I kept seeing these on Pinterest and couldn't wait to give it a go. Very easy too.
For the cards Ive used Tilda With Apple Wreath and Tilda With Trumpet from Waiting For Christmas Collection coloured in Sepia using Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

I found it quite therapeutic making this tree. It does advise to use a 200 page book. Here I used a 300 page, which took lots of folding, but the result was a very full tree.

Seam Binding, Rusty bells, Cheesecloth and the gorgeous Diamante Star are all from the Ribbon Girl Shop.
The wooden stars are from Live and Love Crafts



Thankyou so much for visiting me
Have a wonderful weekend

Lots of Frantage and Mica flakes for the snowy white Christmas effect. The Mica Ive used  are pearly so difficult to see here. Also Ive used glossy accents on the windows of the cottage.

For my card I used one of the three new Breast Cancer images from Magnolia
Hear No Evil See no Evil Speak no Evil available from Sir Stampalot


As it is the month of October and the Breast Cancer awareness month, I though I would auction my card on Ebay and 100% of whatever it makes goes to this amazing charity. ( Im so nervous ,Ive never done this before!!! Gulp!!)

Sleigh Bells

Heyyyy all
How are you today?

Today to share is a little DooHickey project I made for the Magnolia Christmas DooHickey Club Brochure using last years dies.
As you can see there are lots of DooHickeys on there.

In the brochure there is also a little tutorial on how I made these Christmas Poinsettias using the Poinsettia die
I find it really therapeutic making flowers when I dont feel like doing anything else and make a whole bunch in one go.

Papers for my card are Riddersholm

Enjoy the rest of your weekend
