Sadie's First School Day Book

Good morning everyone!
Here's a look at a little book I just finished up now that my craft desk is back to normal! It's made from some kraft cardstock bound together with washii tape. The idea for this actually came from a feature I saw in Scrap 365 magazine and it has lots of stamping which I don't usually go in for but it kinda went well with the messy feel I was trying to achieve. I used washii tape for sticking in the photos and making little flaps to turn the pages. I love washii tape and have quite a wee collection of the stuff now. Thank goodness I have found a way to use some of it! I think that bit of upheaval we had around the house inspired me to tidy my stash up too and I rediscovered lots of things I forgot to use - namely my Big Shot, so I dug that out to make some diecut titles. While I was playing with my Big Shot it occurred to me that I don't have nearly enough dies so I went online and invested in some lovely new framelits which I used to make the school badge on the book cover. I love these dies and  I so have 2 more new sets of framlits with stamps winging their way to me as we speak (purchased from Craft Superstore free delivery for orders over £40 - I had to make sure I spent enough to qualify heehee). Hopefully I might be able to rustle up a few Xmas cards with them when they come!
Talking of which I am working on a couple of card designs that I want to simplify and be able to make up quickly so I can get them out there... nothing too fancy just well designed and simple to put together!
Stay tuned for more craftyness soon!
Have a lovely Sunday with lots of inspiring things in your day!
