About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

CD Mini-Book

One of the Challenges on 12 Months in View last month was to alter an old CD. My biggest challenge here was to find some old CDs but fortunately my husband found a couple of old ones from work. Also one lady mentioned that they work well as the covers to a mini-book so I thought I'd give that a go.

My Big Bite made holes in the CDs without much trouble. I made some card and acetate pages and used book rings to bind.

I had a Kaisercraft patterned paper pad I had bought on a whim some time ago and decided to use that for the pages, which I have duly covered.

I have just decorated the front cover and will ponder the rest as and when the mood takes me. I have done a small collection of embellishments from other kits which colour match too, so ready to go...

While tidying my bedroom window ledge (I tend to hoard things behind the curtains!)I came across a box of cds, have no idea whats on them but this has given me an idea of how to use them when I'm done checking them! ;)
