Another holiday journal needed!!

We are off again to Austria on Saturday for another weeks holiday! Last minute decision, we are off to St Wolfgang this time, for our 3rd visit. So of course I had to make another journal and only had this week to do it. I made one along similar lines to my last one I made following a Prima online class with pocket pages which are great for adding maps and tickets etc. The images are from a fantastic digi kit by Beth Rimmer, one of my first digi kits I have used and loved it.

Glamorous bookmarks

The theme for this months kits for Altered Pages was Glitz and Glammor. Not really my style but after some thought I came up with these bookmarks. The kit is now available through Altered Pages ( link to the right ) which includes instructions and the things you need to make 2 bookmarks. You will learn 2 fun ways to use household bits and pieces to transform into these glamorous bookmarks, the techniques can then be used on other paper projects.

Steampunk cards

The Fruit Pixie have started to sell The Octopede Factory stamps. I chose to play with the Steampunk ones , Lady Audrey,Winston and Gaeken. They are so much fun to colour and went so well with the Bo Bunny Timepiece collection paper pad. The Fruit Pixie has the best Steampunk department I have seen for any embellishments and stamps you might fancy. The instructions for these 3 cards are on the Fruit Pixie blog or Facebook page.

Steampunk paper doll

I must admit I do enjoy making a paper doll, loved them as a child and just never grew out of it. So when I saw a swap for a steampunk paper doll on Art 42 and then the wonderful Bo Bunny papers and extras Sarah, at the Fruit Pixie had , I just had to make one for the swap and one for me. Sarah also sells either a die cut paper doll you just pop out and put together, even comes with all the brads you need, or 3 sizes of paper doll unmounted rubber stamps so you can stamp out onto any card or paper and construct your own. The Fruit Pixie also has lots of Steampunk type things, there is a steampunk section stuffed full in the shop, link on the right. I used the die cut paper doll for mine and you can find instructions for how to make them on the Fruit Pixie blog, link to the right. Go on have a play!
