Well another not very inspiring day in Northumberland so good excuse to carry on crafting.  Have now started putting together the mini book for my nephew's 18th using those gorgeous Bo Bunny Mama Razzi papers from my Cleo Crafts kit.  Need to wait till I get home to scan some photos and gather up some embellishments for the things he is interested in.

Have also started on my Printers Tray.  I have decided not to tamper with the wood finish as I rather like it so have been busy today cutting down some papers to fit in the various sections.  I used Bo Bunny again this time from the Paradise Lost (I think) collection.  I also used used photos I had taken of lobster pots, the sand and some rocks on the beach.  I will not be able to finish this until I get back home although I have made some roses out of some wee scraps of the paper.  Unfortunately the weather hasnt quite been dry enough to have collecting shells trip to the beach so I will need to wait for that.  I am also looking to order a couple of wee glass bottles with cork stoppers which I can fill with some sand.


  1. Ooh I'm loving this. Well done!!

  8. Hi Suzy,
    Thanks for leaving me a lovely comment.

    The Cath Kidston style paper is from Papermania it is called Blueberry Hill. It may be hard to get hold of as it was last year and not that popular, but there are some similar Anna Griffin ones but not as co-ordinated. It only comes in an A4 pack but I have used them for loads of off the paper projects.
    Good luck in finding them.
