I was like a cat on a bed of hot coals waiting for the stamps to arrive as Estelle decorates her envelopes beautifully so you can tell when the post arrives at a glance which is hers. I also pick off the stamps as they are always gorgeous and can you believe this time she put some little stamps in the envelope for me … purring with contentment.
I had a fabby time with Eve from Crafty Queens on Sunday, we made an album … will show another time, per usual mine is still a work in progress. The album was created with a plain white frame from Ikea. I actually loved the kit so much I bought another because I just knew that I wanted to alter the plain white frame and use the stamps that I had won. First pic shows the boring white frame.
Second pic shows how gorgeous the frame looks when altered with Alcoholic Inks … (Alcohol Inks). Dot suggested the inks and the alchoholic bit … I was going to cover with washi tape but the inks did a better job … thank you sweets, didn’t use the Lettuce green though .
I made three flip over pages, each page can also hold a tag and when the page is flipped over you can add a photo to the back if you want to. The third pic shows the tag and the fourth shows the tag inserted. You just slide between the punched edges. The beauty of this is that you can change your tags whenever you want … love it.
You will be seeing more of the stamps I won and below is how the frame looks on my craft room windowsill … very lucky to get this photo as the light is almost gone but can you believe it is a better shot and shows the colours beautifully. You can just see a sneak peek of the tags which are going to be added to the other flip pages. I adore this frame because each day I can flip and look at something new, plus I can add a new tag anytimg I want … cool eh. Hopefully tomorrow I will finish and post.
