Graphic 45 Couture Album

I found this project as an online class from Clare Charvill at the Graphic 45 blog site.  This one just had my name written all over it.  I am not going to post pics of all the pages as you can view at Clare's site.  This took me about two and half months to make but I adore how it came out.

There are dozens of little pockets and fold outs and places for tags. 

I will be making some more of Clare's online class projects.  She does a superb job of her tutorials!

Paper Train

I have made this gorgeous 3d Santa Express Train for a Christmas gift.  Yes for Christmas 2014.  I finished it in January of 2014!  It is a Silhouette cut file from SVG Cuts.  I am quite happy with the outcome of this one.  Only thing is that if you use liquid glue you have to let the pieces dry under something heavy or they will warp slightly.  The next project I will be using more of the Sookwang tape and only gluing the tiniest pieces. 

SVG Cuts has some really incredible files and they cut out beautifully. 

Once again, I would love to hear what you think of this one!

Miniature Garden

This is definitely the blog that died!  I haven't been idle though.  The best part is that I have a new post for you.  Actually, I have three posts!  The first one is a miniature garden and I just love how it came out.  One of the local greenhouses had a flyer come out in December and I registered for the mini garden class five months ago.  I have been surfing blogs and miniature garden ideas since then.  Today was class day! 

The whole container is about 12 inches across and I have put six mini plants in.  There is a trellis at the back and the bird house, a tiny wheelbarrow and the tiny little pot of lillies. There is also a bird bath at the back under the bird house.  Can you find it?

I hope a little fairy or sprite will find the chair to settle in for a cup of tea or a good read! 

I would love to hear what you think of my first attempt at miniature gardens.  I think I'll make another one!  A couple more photos for you.
