Springtime Paperbag Book

Hello All! Hope you are well - the sun is shining in North Yorkshire - so life is good!

I have been asked to run a few workshops for The Paperlane in Northallerton - this is a sample of what we will be doing! Can't wait to spend the day with lovely like minded people who are not afraid of being covered in glitter in public!! I LOVE making these - they take longer than the usual 6x6 card, but for someone special they are most definately worth it!
The front cover - with ties to close the book. The main image here is from the new Butterfly Dreams Collection by Magnolia Stamps. The detail die cut is a Tim Holtz 'Elegant Flourishes', decorated with Hydrangea flower blossoms, punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

The main image again is from the Butterfly Dreams Collection. The sentiments are all Hero Arts, with a Magnolia Doo Hickey tag.

Again, the image is from the Butterfly Dreams Collection. The sentiments are all Hero Arts. The detail punching has been done with a Cherry Blossom Martha Stewart 'Punch Around The Corner' set.

The back cover - decorated to show who sent it! Lots of glitter and Viva Decor Pearl Pens just add a few finishing touches.

All the images have been coloured using Copic Markers....i'm a bit excited - I've got a copy of Marianne Walker's 'Shadows and Shading' book winging its way to me - I have not been as excited about colouring in since my Aunty bought me an M&S bumper colouring book, Christmas 1981. She also bought me a pair of gold spandex socks, but they got accidentally chewed by the dog! Too much information - I know!

Enjoy the sunshine! Kx
