Just back today from a very relaxing few days away at my parents caravan which is in Beadnell, a pretty quiet wee village in Northumberland. Weather was actually pretty good condsidering the forecast. Had plenty of quiet walks on the beach and a chance to recharge my batteries, just what was needed. Back to reality with a bump tonight though. Never mind. Will try my best to get a bit of crafting done. Did take some stuff with me but its my parents caravan and with both of them, myself and my 16 year old daughter there was really not enough space to get much crafting done. Did finish the cover for my first CJ though which I am joining in with on UKS.
The paper is a Bo Bunny basics paper which I really loved the colour of, I matched it up with some brown card onto which I stitched a flourish using one of the Bazill In Stiches templates. I used a dymo to create the title on some coredinations green card which I then sanded - the photo does not show this up to its best. The green trim was from the first Gottacraft Dabble kit and matched the paper perfectly. The brown chipboard frame was from the latest Cleo Crafts monthly kit. I need to do my rules page, my sign in page and a double layout and then its pretty much ready to go. I am struggling a bit with the rules as this is my first one and I really dont know what to say. I gather I need to make tags of some sort for the sign in page but again I'm not quite sure what size to use as I dont know what information needs to go on these. I am also unsure as to whether there should be a sort of introduction page to say why you chose the theme of the CJ. Never mind I'm sure I will get the hang of it eventually. I hope so cos I have also joined in a newbie CJ on UKS - in for a penny in for a pound.
