Over atUKStampers Effie has been hosting a "Random Swap".In this one we sent off 5 random things to the person below us on a list and therefore received 5 from somebody above us. This is what I got.... The paper is really funny, with french writing on, underneath which is a pronounciation and then a third line which is the translation! So I got the paper, fabric, ribbon, lace and a button.
This is what I did...cut the fabric into tattered flowers and inked the edges of some. I then made the lace into a couple of centres and stitched them together. Stitched the ribbon into a rosette and added the button as a centre then attached the whole lot to a tag that I had covered with the fabby french paper that I had inked over randomly. Great fun this one and stretched my creative muscle!
I am a married mother of four who took up papercrafting about 4 years ago. I started with ATCs and Inchies and as I got braver I started to Scrapbook too! My current faves are stamping CJs (oooo just love 'em), scrapbooking and making mini books with the shedloads of photos I take!As you can imagine I have to fit it round the children and also numerous pets so blogging can be a bit hit and miss! Generally I blog better in school holidays when I am not at work as a TA. Thank you for popping by and I hope you like what you see here!
