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 Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, 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, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

12 Months In View - Wild Rose

I got quite excited when I saw this month's giveaway on 12 Months as they were just my colours, Cranberry and Apple, hmmm YUM! I printed off one background and the pocket page.

I made up the pocket decorating it with the Wild Rose Flower from the same page and also the filigree wording. I pasted the tag piece on the back of my Coronation tag, added the rose wording and a postage stamp of Our Queen as she is now for the 60th anniversary since her coronation.

Then I cut up the backing paper to fit my page. I used the cut off top and bottom to make up the wider sides and the little left over pieces in the corners. Then I added various pieces of leftover card from my stencil bumping last week having made twinches out of the main pieces.

Then, as I had a tray of newly cut white card of all my new dies I just laid them on and they looked fine against the darker background so I went ahead and stuck them down. Having a bit of a bird fest at present. Got the tiny birds after craft club last week. I wanted a fence die, as we are having our fence re-done next week, and it came with the medium bird and the birdhouse. And I have been after a dove for a while, so that just popped into my basket too. Oops.

The page isn't anything I planned at all but I am quite pleased with it all the same.

Hi BJ, love the tag and pocket and the colour combination is lovely. That stamp is just perfect and I like the connection between the queen and the English rose - she is reputed to have a beautiful complexion. Your page is great too - the tiny bird is so cute. Elizabeth xx
