Sweet Things Are Made Of This


Good morning blogland, it's a lovely day here today, bright but still a little cold.  Busy day today as I have the grandchildren again this weekend so I am up bright and early to let you know what the Papermill have on offer this week. 
Check out this beautiful 230gm white leather embossed card, great value at £5.00 for a Small Box, £13.50 for a Midi  Box and  £32.50 for a Mega Box.


I made the cover of this photo album with this lovely textured card, adding some coloured inserts using Papermill coloured card.



I used Indigo Blu square peg round hole and Oak House Studio clematis corner stamps, coloured the stamped area with distress inks and fussy cut out.  The flowers were stamped twice and layered  to give a 3D effect.  The panel was fastened over a ribbon for fastening the album closed.



Just for fun I made a cowboy boot using the white leather card, decorated with Papermill post box red, light turquoise, daffodil yellow and mocha brown.  The boot was cut on the Silhouett using a Lori Whitlock cutting file. 


Another Lori Whitlock cutting file was used for this note book with pen holder.  The white leather card was coloured with distress inks and a Memory Box flower die added.  You can really pick out the leather embossed pattern on this photograph.

That's it for me for a few days, will be back next week with some more inky things I have been working on this week.

Gorgeous make, love the look of that leather embossed card but I wish it could come in a mixed pack of texture so I didn't have to buy a huge box of it!
