Beach Happy - Notebook

Morning all! I have a little notebook to share with you today. Remember me mentioning that I bought a Cinch? Well this is my first make with it. This was originally supposed to be for the Deep Ocean Seaside/Beach Challenge a couple of weeks  back, but I had a couple of weeks where everything just went horribly wrong and my crafting was somewhat curtailed.

But better late than never right?

 I coloured up an older Saturated Canary digi that I've had for a long time called Cali Girl. I gave her a little yellow polka dot bikini and made the pages inside the notebook yellow too to match.

Colours from memory are I think:
Vintage Photo. Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Rasberry

The papers are various scraps of mostly older Maja design ones, and I made a little scene with some dies. I tried to keep stuff fairly flat as this was a notebook, and just finished off with a few enamel dots and a couple of Make it Crafty's fabulous chipboard words.  I inked the bottom and top pieces of chipboard in 2 different colour pink inks. The top one has a shimmery sheen to it.

I love how simple the Cinch made this to do and I will definitely be making some more in the future!

Bye for now,

Morning all! I found this card in my draft folder, apparently it was supposed to go live in July, but yours truly must have forgotten to hit 'publish' ...ooops.

Oh well, better late than never. so I'm sharing it today. Quite a simple card I made with some 12 x 12 paper from the Lemoncraft Neverending Summer collection plus seveal elements from the cut aparts sheet.

I simply inked and distressed all the straight edges and layered them up with foam tape and adding in some lace and a chipboard doily, stamping a sentiment with black ink on the little cut out banner..
Then I finished up with a bouquet of paper lilies ad leaves, some spotty organza ribbon and a few gems.

All in all it was a pretty quick card to make.

Have a great Friday!
