Sweet smash journals

I belong to a FB group where we trade ATCs every month. The lovely moderator, Dawn, has started a ‘sweet smash journal’ page as well. Here’s how she describes them:


This is not how I normally work, but I have some old grunge card journals lying around, and lots of bits and pieces I’d like to use up, so decided to join in the fun. Not quite what Dawn had in mind, but I’m sure she won’t mind! Here are two quick pages I did this afternoon – it was fun to work without thinking about it too much.



Christmas gift tags

I’ve started my Christmas shopping. Not because I like the fact there’s Christmas ‘stuff’ in the shops already, in fact, I hate seeing it all out so early; I think it dilutes the excitement. But I prefer to shop slowly, so start early.  Christmas crafting takes time, particularly as I make a lot of cards so, again, I start early.

This year’s gift tags are done with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, Tim Holtz Distress mica spray in antique gold, Simon Says Stamp intense black ink, and rubber stamps by (umm, someone…). I’ll finish them off with fibre & ribbon through the hole, and write on them with a calligraphy pen.
