Fallen leaves

Good afternoon everyone, And welcome to my blog today, I have another card to share with you from Tonic Studios Autumn Wishes Die collection ,hope you managed to catch some shows over the weekend with our jo & Dawny.
Dies used :-
Autumn Wishes - Fallen Leaves
Square layering die set
 Idyllic Garland fancy-Friends Forever die
Tonic Simplicity bunch- Gothic Border

The card is 8"x8" easel card with Matt and layering the background I used a selection of Tim Holtz distressed inks Spiced Marmalade- Dried Marigold-Festive Berries, just randomly  rubbed into  the card stock blending the colours together and then spritzing the card stock lightly with water and dabbing off the excess with kitchen towel.
The leaves were cut out of 4 squares using the square layering die sets and then keeping the negative from the die cut to create a little more interest to the card the leaves I cut out of kraft card and spritzed the card stock with a little water to soften the card so I could scrunch it up to give it more of a natural leaf shape  and then  inked with Tim Holtz tea dye and some Dried Marigold and rubbed the edge of the leaves with nuvo copper mousse.
The Forever Friends  die i cut a piece of the inked card and with a black fine liner  pen I filled in the debossed  letters to make it stand out then finished the card with the gothic border on foam pads to form the stopper for the card to stand up and added nuvo drops for the final decoration.

Thank you for visiting today

See you all soon

Memory albums 2 Christmas Themed

Good morning everyone, just popping by to share the Memory Book 2 collection with you from Tonic Studios,also at the bottom of this blog post you will find a step by step slide show of me talking my way  through a basic album ,you  certainly  love these albums and being a newbie to albums myself I am  getting a bit addicted.
The first album I would like to share with you  is Christmas themed I know Christmas, but thinking ahead what a fantastic way of keeping those treasured memories past or present for gifts or yourself to pass down through the family. I think it's so important to put photos in albums with as much journaling as you can ,my husband and I have many photos  in our loft and nobody to ask who these picture's  are as there are no dates or names on the back of the photos and all my husband's side have passed away so i think this is so important.

All the album is decorated with craft perfect card stock apart from the red base card which is fill a box and is 3oogs…
