Good morning all, can you believe we are at the end of August already, where does the time go?
That means it’s sadly time to say goodbye to our guest designer of the month …and this month it has been the fabulous Lena Katrine
You all love her work and this last post is going to be no exception! She has made these scrumptious little bookmarks to share with you using our companion stamps and there are also some instructions for how to make them, over to Lena ….
1. Cut Cardstock in to size 5" x 6". Find the middle of the top side measuring 6", fold in the corners.
2. Cut a panel out of DP for the front in size 4 13/16" x 5 13/16". Cut off the corners to match the grade on the Book Mark in cardstock.
3. Cut 2 panels out of DP's to the back side of the Book Mark, 1 in size 1 7/8" x 5 7/8", and 1 in size 4" x 4". Cut the square diagonally (makes 2 triangles), and use just the one triangle on the top of the back.
4. Glue the one piece of DP's on to the front of the cardstock...
5. ... and the 2 pieces to the back.
6. Find/cut out bits and bobs to add to the front...
7. ...and to the back.
Then you're ready to embellish your Corner Book Mark as you wish
Aren’t they just gorgeous! …and what a lovely little gift.
I do hope you’ve enjoyed the tutorial and that you’ll have a go at making some, I’m know I’m going to
Thank you so much to Lena Katrine for agreeing to be out guest designer and make sure you pop back tomorrow when I’ll be introducing our fantastic new guest designer for September. We’re delighted to have have her on board and here’s a little clue …she has a constant companion when she’s crafting (who calls the shots!!)
Have a lovely day

Good morning crafters, I hope you all enjoyed a lovely long bank holiday weekend.
The weather let us down again but it gave me opportunity to enjoy a lazy afternoon yesterday watching Sense and Sensibility on the TV and then do a bit of crafting
Today’s card is one I made using Christmas Angel – Round Bauble from the Christmas people stamps which were launched a couple of weeks ago. There is a matching one also with this called Christmas Angel – Oval Bauble.
Sorry the picture is not very good, you can’t really see but the bauble is glittered (I love a bit of glitter on my cards!)
The sentiment is from Set 26 Simply Sophisticated which has a wonderful selection of greeting for all occasions
Have a lovely day everyone, thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to leave a comment if you would like to be entered into our £25 candy draw which will be made on Friday

Good morning all, I hope you’re having a nice long weekend and enjoying the bank holiday
Again it’s lovely to see some different colour choices on the Christmas cards, the DT have stayed away from traditional red and green on quite a few of their cards this year and I think they’re worked really well, I’m sure you’ll agree we’ve had some beautiful cards to share with you using the new Christmas images
See you tomorrow
