I am so cross - Re-Kill has been pushed back to the end of December now!!!!!!!!!! I have probably grumbled about this before but it deserves fresh airing. The frustration is unbearable, especially in this heat. I know!!!!!!! Look at that sun, it's fabulous.
Anyway............. I have finished a couple of mini's that I thought would be worth a share. I finished the Thick and Chunky swap mini for Debbie Luke on My Scrap Room. Here are a few sneak peeks......
This is the inside of the mini. I made all the pages myself from cardstock. Debbie said she liked orange and purple and teddy bears and butterflies so I did it all!
This is the front. I left the space black for the title as I couldn't think of anything good to title it.
This is a flip up page. I got the teddy bear stickers from Create and Craft a few years ago and I keep using them on an off, now and again.
I joined an itty bitty shaped mini swap and here is what I made................
These are really small, about 3" by 3" with all the tags sticking out. I couldn't have a square or rectangle so I went with a triangle. It's an envelope sealed up and cut into quarters diagonally and 1 side of the triangle folded in to make a smaller pocket and a larger one. I punched holes in the top of the triangle and added eyelets for security and bound with a single book ring. I think they turned out quite well.
I also joined a swap on Your Paper Pantry to upcycle a childrens book. I was the only entrant and I am starting to wonder if there is a new NING site that all the swappers are going to as nobody is entering the swaps. I will have to investigate further but in the mean time here is the upcycled book. It was a book about a famous train and now it's a work of art.....................
This is the front cover. Cari let me have free choice about what I made for her so did my best with what I had to work with. I am at work and can only carry so much stuff with me but I loved the way it turned out.
This is one lot of pages. the book had flip outs so I covered those and wrapped it with a ribbon threader lace and tucked all the tags under them. I made loads of tags for this album but it looks good.
I think that is all for today. I have nothing to report other than my miffyness about Re-Kill. Still, I suppose it's good they are taking their time with the movie and making sure it's perfect before they release it - just wish it didn't take so miffing long. :)
On a more random note I would just like to say that I am not impressed with this country and it's politicians and I bet to anyone that is reading I don't even have to explain that statement. I would also like to know if there is any way of being able to not use a bank - they get my grrrrrrrrrrrrs as well. Sometimes I just feel so small and insignificant and that I have no voice!!
I hope you are all having a good day.
