I may be the worlds worst blogger...

I do have good intentions but life seems to be getting in the way. I am at University and that takes up a lot of time with homework etc and then when I am done with all that I generally want to scrap so blogging is fairly low on my priorities. But I am making an effort to get back to it... I promise :)

Anyway I wanted to share a page I did a couple of weeks ago. At my parents place (where I still lived until recently - long story) there is a little Blackbird that seems to be on his own and is always fossicking in the back yard. He seems to do a good job at it because he is a little fat bird!

Anyway I loved the chevron pattern on the back of the My Minds Eye Tapestry paper that came with SC Central High kit. It was lying on my desk sideways and I got the idea that it was the shape of a birds beak. So I started from there.


I wanted to sew the little triangles on but of course my sewing machine had a tanty! Anyway I forged ahead and although it is not the best stitching it worked with the rest of the page (and I was not giving up my beloved chevron paper!).

I also used my Silhouette. It is an SD and we have a major love/hate relationship - it loves to ruin the cuts and I hate it. But for once I managed to get it to work which means maybe we can become friends after all.

The title is made with the Amy Tangerine Baxter alphabet. I wasn't sure what to do with them when I first got them but after using them here I have decided I absolutely love them.

WOW This has been long post for me but before I go I just wanted to mention I have been working on some journal cards that will fit project life page protectors and are perfect for December Daily.
Here is a peak:

These are printable and are available through my Etsy Store.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

  2. How clever to turn that pp on its side! I never used mine - it stumped me, but I think I'll go back and check it out sideways! Fabulous layout and those DD journal cards looks beautiful!
