Diary #9

Hi there , thanks for stopping by. Today I have a diary that I have covered using some lovely Maja Design papers. They are from the “Vintage Spring Basics” collection & they are just so beautiful.

Diary #12

Firstly I covered the diary with the “5th of March” paper & then I cut some strips of the “7th of March”, “8th March” as well as some strips from the back of the “5th of March” that I had used to cover it with. I simply stuck the strips on to the front of the diary . I inked around the edges of the book with some distress ink.

Diary #13

I then proceeded to decorate it with some lovely 2Crafty chipboards, lots of flowers, a little string bow as well as lots of aqua micro beads for added texture. I also  scattered a few pearls around too as well as cutting out two tiny butterflies from the paper to stick in the bottom right hand corner.


Well thats all from me today. Until next time.

Hi my name is Di Garling. I am married to a very patient man, I have two grown up sons, two grandchildren & a little dog. I owned & operated a Scrapbook shop for eight years here in Australia until I recently sold it & retired. I think retirement is the best kept secret. I love it, it gives me lots of time to enjoy my craft. I still teach scrapbooking & cardmaking once or twice a week, so all in all I am as busy as ever & wouldn’t have it any other way.
