Totally Tiffany Acetate Card

The Totally Tiffany CD was released today. Rather different in presentation form Kraftyhands.
 Instead of the ordinary CD plastic box they have decided to go with a slim folder which can be added to a binder folder, there is a pocket for you CD and best of all some scrumptious vellum paper to print on.
Tiffany to me just conjurers up images of beautiful lamps and this CD has that feel.

The vellum is beautiful to print on but for a try I decided to use acetate so I could put glitter on the reverse.

You will need
  • 8 x 8 die to make as an easel card by cutting two and joining
  • acetate that you can print on. I think I got mine from Office and it is for printing overhead projector sheets
  • Crafters Companion spray glue
  • Glitter,  I used My Craft Studio. 
  • small corner dies. The ones I used were free on a magazine.

Garden Journal Jar


Hope you like my Journal Jar.This one is for a Garden but there are lots of ideas for different jars depending on how you decorate them.

I made this one with the idea that you would give it as a present to perhaps someone who cherishes memories but is not into scrap booking.

They are inexpensive to make and would make a different kind of Christmas Present, perhaps with some seed packets inside for the keen gardener.

It was very easy to decorate the jar, I think making the suggestion list took the longest time. So I thought I might list my ideas here to give you some ideas. I printed mine out on the PC and then added them to the tag of course you could hand write the list.
  • A photo of each season in your garden
  • Record your happiest days relaxing or working in your garden
  • A list of plants you grew that year
  • Sounds in your garden
  • The smells of your garden
  • Write about your favourite plants
  • Record the first and last day you cut the grass
  • Get friends to record a visit to your garden
  • Photos of you, your friends and family in the garden
  • Visitors to your garden, birds, insects and animals.
  • Plans for next year.
If you have a great number of photos perhaps a memory stick might be an easy way to add them to your jar.
