Small Is Beautiful

Yeh know what, I have been so busy designing and creating for up-coming workshops that my poor little blog has been neglected … 😥

Managed to post my DT piece for Fashionable Stamping Challenges which is …

Good Things Come In Small Packages.

I am so in love with these little albums, the first two I made were with two 12″ x 12″ pieces of paper which gives you a 6″ x 6 “album.

This time round I started with two 6″ x 6″ papers which makes a very neat little 3″ x 3″ album. Used the Graphic 45 papers … A Ladies Diary, so beautiful and also some Stampin Up papers.

Some of the stamps are from the Peg Stamp Range which are really weeny … embossed a few with gold embossing powder. The inside stamps are from Prima Romantique Collection but the little heart stamp that she is sitting on was from a set of … See D’s Stamps (think they are discontinued because I can’t find a link anywhere).

The ribbon was died … (oops thought I would leave it in because the ribbon looks as if it has died being so grungy and dirty looking lol) … dyed with rust alcohol ink then heat set to melt and distort just a little. Used micro beads for the little girls hat and the ribbon around the waist.

Don’t miss out on all the DT’s creations they look fantabulous as per usual.

    Wow Shirl…you have sooo much detail in this little bitty package! I really like the hole that the ribbon goes through as well!!! And I must have a go at heat setting alcoholic ink on ribbon…I didn’t know that it did that! lol…so much to learn, so little time. I love this project intrepid leader.

    What a great idea! 3×3 needs careful planning but at least it is achieveable in a slightly shorter timescale. Love what you have done here. Thanks for your lovely comment. Hugs, Buttons x
