National Scrapbooking Day @ CUL

Hello, quite a long post today, I wanted to share some craft bits that I made yesterday. We had a great day celebrating 'National Scrapbooking Day' at Crafts U Love . I was lucky enough to demo some of the new QK dies, Nesties and Shimmerz and combine them with some scrapbooking. Above is a page and below a mini-book which I completed for the demo. I have started another page, but need to tweek it a bit, so will upload it later.

I decided it was time to document just some of my large collection of Russian dolls. I have been collecting them for over twenty years now and my dear hubby feeds my addiction when he travels abroad. On my page, I have used the QK Labels die (CC Shape-3-026, Imaginience 'Twitterpated' paper and Burnt Orange Bazzill card. I inked some chipboard letters with 'Momento - Cocoa', have stamped some brackets, added flowers, pearls and buttons from stash.

Above is a QK Label book on Nature. I have used the same Labels die as before and covering some scrap card with some more of the Imaginisce papers from the 'Twitterpated' range. I have used some QK bird, tree, butterfly and toadstool die to fill the book along with chipboard letters to spell out NATURE and have added loads of buttons. Some ribbons attached to the rings are from my evergrowiing ribbon box.

All products used can be purchased at CUL, if you make a purchase on-line over the bank holiday, your postage will be free, so hurry over and bag yourself a bargain or two! Am off to finish my other page, hope your enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend and managing to get some crafting done. Thanks for stoppng by my blog, Heidi xx
