First of all I would like to thank everyone for all their kind comments about my Take it Further piece in the post below. The encouragement is much appreciated.
When I went to the Craft for Crafters show at Exeter last weekend I attended 2 workshops, the Stef Francis brooch (see earlier post) and this book made using the new Bind-It-All machine which inserts wire binders. We were given sheets of double sided 12x12 papers which we folded into pocket pages and then bound into the book, and we had a sheet of embellishments to match the papers, all by Fancy Pants. Yesterday I used the embellishments to decorate the front cover of the book and to make 6 tags to go into the pockets. The set of lovely ladies that I used on the tags are courtesy of Cora of Paper Flowers. Every Saturday she posts some vintage images which she invites her readers to download and use, only asking that we leave a comment on her blog acknowledging the use. She also does lots of lovely stamping herself which is well worth looking at.
