Just a quick post - busy finishing off my exploding box. Here are some taggy bits that I've made for it. They are clear embossed stamps on brown Kraft cardstock, with a bit of distressing and I've lightened the inner bit of the image by rubbing some moonlight white chalk ink on them which really brings out the contrast in them. Cool. Even printed out some photies too so, watch this space for more images soon.

Happy New Year and best wishes for 2012, to all you crafty peeps out there! Hope you're scrapping or at least doing something creative with all the photos you have taken over the festive season. Or not, if you're me. Well, it's not that I'm not doing anything creative cos as you can see I've made a start with this years mini, the only thing is I don't seem to have many photos of this Christmas at all. Must've been too busy opening pressies or something (or in the kitchen cooking probably!). Never mind, I have no ink to print them out anyway which gives me time to take pics of favourite pressies and pretend I took them all on the 25th. No-one will ever know I "cheated".
Anyhoo, here's a sneak peak of what is on my messy old table at the moment. It's not nearly finished as I haven't done any titles or journalling yet but while I'm getting round to taking some photos and getting printer ink, I think I might do a wee exploding box which I've taken a notion to making. I made one of these about 5 years ago and it was fun. This one is a bit different this time round with pockets and flaps instead of just layers, so its a new challenge. Stay tuned to see if I can work out from the instructions how to do it!
Love to you all,
