More Sneaky Peeks!

CJ Family

You will be forgiven for thinking this is an ATC!

That is because it is!

The Circle journal I am part of on UKScrappers involved making an ATC as a signing off card ... which I think is a fab idea ... the theme is strictly vintage

I used the papers and lace etc., that I used on my lay out to make it and just added a doo dad and a Paper Bag Studio stamp to finish it!

I don't like to show the whole CJ entry on my blog CJ Family c as I feel this may spoil the surprise for the recipient ... but I do like to blog my progress so here are a few sneaky peeks.

I used grunge board to make the initials and painted and embossed then in gold. The frames were made with stamps from Paper Bag Studios.

As with all my entries I have added some Stitchels flowers. I make them using metal foil and Claudine Hellmuth's sticky backed canvas coloured with CJ Family b Vintage photo distress inks from Ranger.

I have had lots of emails asking about these flowers so I will try and make a tutorial ... I say try because I have never actually done one before :0))

This entry was only posted today ... a little bit late due to the Bank Holiday weekend .... I am looking forward to receiving next month's project any day now!
