FSC Meets A Playday

Fashionable Stamping Challenges want to see you Paperpiece onto your project this fortnight plus our generous sponsor Flonz Crafts will be giving the winner of this challenge $20 to spend in his shop.
Can you Adam and Eve it … that’s believe it for all you non cockney’s … this used to be my one true love with crafting … how times change.

Two crafty friends came for a play day on Monday and one brought with her the new Big Shot Pro Die Pocket Page and Tag plus all the six Prima Doll Stamps … yep she had them all, oh what a day we had … crafty heaven for all … ehhh except Andrew.

This die can only be used with the Big Shot Pro Machine … no she didn’t lug this huge beast to my house, I already have one but I didn’t have the die. As you can imagine we all had a cut out fest and then sat down and started to make our albums.

These are two of the tags which will live in the album … sorry girls had to chop off all their legs at the knees because they are just so humongous and wouldn’t fit onto the tags. The stamps are about 7.5″ up to 8″ in length … that’s large.

Prima Album 5

What better papers to use with the dolly stamps than the Graphic 45 Secret Garden Collection … now these stamps are just like Marmite … you either love them or hate them. I love them, might be something to do with the fact they have no face … not sure what that says about me!!!

Used six pages for the album and each page has a stamped girly tag poked into the pocket. Every image has been paperpieced with the G45 papers. Below is the front of the album and showing the first Prima Doll.

Prima Album

Who is this album for you ask my granddaughter … LAUREN. Her birthday is in April when she will be ten so this is her birthday card … eh album. The stamps used here are from the Prima Romantique Collection which should appeal to any little girl especially when paperpieced.

Lots more to show but that can wait for another time. Right now you should hop over and catch what all my other teemies have made … utterly amazing what you will see.
