Ploughing Scrapbook

Hubby again being scrap....booked!
Nothing men like more than playing about with
rusty old things in mud.
This was made using 12 x 12 Parisienne blue paper,
edges inked.
I used some of my old paper stock with
music and birds on, cut in half length ways, mat
 and layered each piece. Put a piece of washi
tape up between the two.
Parisenne blue lace paper, seed pockets, die cut
leaves in blue with white stitch detail.

Metal embellishment with saying.

Sewing Scrapbook Page

This scrapbook page is all about sewing.
I have mainly used the Sew Lovely Range from Docrafts.
In each corner I have die cut the measure tape on to
red cardstock to make them stand out.

Wooden cotton reels from the bare basics range have got
bakers twine wrapped around and adhered to pleated
ribbon. Crochet and felt fabric flowers with button
centres and two jewelled pins.

Harvest Scrapbook & Card

Something very different for me a scrapbook page.
This has been made using a sheet of 12 x 12 Spot paper
from the Spots and Strips range (Docrafts). The edges have
been inked to add depth.

Hexagons have been cut using the Xcut dies in two
different sizes to mat and layer.  Light blue textured
card and Madame Payraud papers. 

Green textured card has been cut into a long strip
and images which I mat and layered on to Kraft card
(but cannot be seen in these photos very well) 
evenly spaced. Brown twin wrapped around the card
Madame Payraud typed letter to spell out
'Harvest Time'  Xcut cogs cut and screw head brads to
hold in place.  Three sprigs of corn with a piece of
raffia wrapped and tied into a bow for effect.

This is my husband on the binder and stood by a
corn stook.

Dried Fruits & Herbs

I just love making these wreaths with a variety of dried fruits and herbs.
Not terribly good photos, running out of room in the barn!!

In the picture is also one of my lavender bags.
Oranges, Lemons, Lime, Chili, Cinnamon, Bay Leaves, Star Anise, Apple
