Morning guys,well I have been lucky enough to get these awards still can't believe it.

My wee books,were chosen as top 3 winner sisters of craft.

Then I got another top pick for one of my cards at crafting from the heart.

And I have just,found out that one of my cards,was chosen by the team from inkspirational.

So to say I am chuffed,is an understatement really made my day especially as they are chosen by the DT.

Right now for todays makes,I made this card using a hunky dory topper,and the dies are X Cut.

With the dress form I have used one of the stitching dies to create some detail in the dress.

Now as you know I have been learning slowly to sew and saw these on Pinterest and decided to have a go, there are lots of tutorials but I can never follow them so I just went on my own.
So here are my boxes all ready for my sewing bits. Will be making more of these.

I just used some of my odd scraps of material up and they are perfect for holding lots of bits and bobs.

Well hope you enjoy my post today sorry there are so many photos,.
have a wonderful day love massive hugs Cherylxx

Hi guys sorry not been around much,but not been feeling to great had a bad reaction to some cream.
I keep forgetting to check the ingredients,and oh boy I have paid for it.

Still never mind
I was asked to make a mouse for a customer well I have never done anything like this before,she was really pleased with it,thankfully.

With the leftover material I made her a bag to put it in.

So here it is..............

So what do you think? I charged £10 for it.

Next we have a hunky dory topper,which I have added glitter too. Various dies I have used including tattered lace,spellbinders,tonic and sara davis ones too. I have added pearls to the centre of them and more to the corners. Papers I have used are called christmas wishes from trimcraft. Tiny envelopes i made on memory keepers,123 punch board.

Best thing I ever bought makes thousands of different sized envelopes so easy to use too. Plus boxes and bows.
Finished card with ribbon and some pins.

Lots of love to you all

Well I have finally made my very first journal and really enjoyed getting messy again.

So here is my step by step guide,on how I made it,showing you my binding method.
I will be doing lots more,of different books,and how to,put them together so watch this space,

  So there you have it guys one tutorial hope the pictures are okay so sorry  there are so lots of them.

This is the finished journal.
As you can see I added bits of paper,etc,all different,many sizes too.

This is the back of the journal,as you can see I added,bits of,the phone,book,to plus I took some string and placed beads on it. then added it with ribbon.

 This is the front I took an old watch,face and a bottle top and placed the watch inside,the bottle top. added few bits of paper to the book too.   

So that is it one journal hope you liked the tutorial.  love Cheryl xxx

Just remember,if you want to add more pages,just add more folds the binding,always indicates,the size of your book so just alter the size of the binding if you wish to make a smaller or larger book.

The tutorial,if you want it still for the tiny mini books is 

So have fun and email me if you need any help or message me on FB hugs to you all love  Cheryl xxx

Hi guys,remember the tutorial I showed you about making,those tiny books from 6 inch paper.

Well after posting them all off to everyone,I was talking to Judy,and her husband suggested making some Christmas ones,so I thought about making some to hang on the Christmas tree.

Also I would love to know if any of you have any ideas what we could do with these books.

Thought it may be a good idea to,get some ideas going on our blogs any suggestions welcome.

Also,I was thinking of doing some,tutorials on how I make different books,for example,this one,below is made from one sheet of 12 inch paper.

This is made from just one sheet of 12 by 12 inch paper with lots of pockets to add things too.

So now onto,the tiny mini books,which I have made into Christmas ones to hang on the tree.

So what do you think?

I also thought of making them into like tiny advent calender's.

So if you have any more idea,please let me know,and we can get creating.
Plus if you would like some tutorials on,different ways to make books,I will get some,tutorials,done.

Love hugs Cherylxxxx
