WOYWW - Glimmer Frenzy !

Hi WOYWWers !
A few bits & bobs going on this week on my workdesk !

As I mentioned in previous posts I was inspired by the lovely work of Polish scrapper & artist Finnabair (check out her blog on http://tworzysko.blogspot.co.uk/ ) to create a page in her beautiful style.

So a frenzy of die cutting & a few litres of Glimmer Mist later here's my attempt !

The photo is one my friend Lynda took of me when we went out for a fun photo shoot on a rare sunny day last spring - we had a great laugh taking silly pictures of each other !

The tags are recycled from some shirts my husband bought - and I used up loads of bits & bobs I had tucked in my die cuts & scraps drawer !
And got to use some of the die cut borders & flourishes my friend Jan cut for me too ! 

I had a few bits left over from the layout - so they made it into my journal with a stamped phrase I had been wanted to use for ages.

Not sure it's totally finished yet - but thought I would show you anyway !

And one last thing I made tonight - a card for a one of my team who had a heart operation yesterday - all went well & we just wanted to tell him how pleased we are to hear that !
So its going into work with me tomorrow for the team to sign !

Well have a great crafty week & looking forward to seeing your desks this week !

  5. Ali, that is so beautiful. I like the golden tone to it. I have heard a lot about this Finnabars artist. You did an amazing work and the card is really cute. I hope your friend recovers swiftly.

    Thanks for sticking by me on my stash arguement/justification. Hee hee.. Us girls got to stick together. Thanks for the visit.

    Have a blessed week.

  6. Hi Ali,

    You've been busy! What a nice scrapbook page. I love to see people use things like clothes price tags, etc. I've discovered that I'm re-purposing things and I love it!

    The card for your co-worker looks great. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay #18

  10. Loving that scrap layout Ali. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who saves the tags from clothing purchases (well the decorative ones anyway:) Happy WOYWW, hugs Buttons #119

  11. I love all your creations. Thanks for visiting.


  12. Lots of great creations here, Ali--oh, yes, gotta love that glimmer!

    The house where that museum is isn't the prairie house, actually, it's the one Laura and Almanzo built after they were married. It's full up of their things, and the museum has awesome stuff, like Pa's fiddle!

  16. Wow, what a productive week. The page is so pretty and the journal too...wow!

  17. That is a sweet card, but masculine too, well done! I saw a picture from a past WOYWW and you are a doozy of a mess maker. lol :) Bet you felt right at home visiting my desk, huh? Oh, actually yours isn't that bad at all, really. I responded to your comment on my blog...the embossing folder is by Sizzix and the name of it is Fall set. Pretty simple, huh? More details on my blog in response to your comment, if you need them. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  18. Looks like you have had a busy week! Love the layout and I think you hit the style on the head. Your journal page and card are awesome too! I think hooking in Wales and the USA have the same definition unless you are talking to a group of punch needle rug hookers! I was giggling and told my husband I found out how to pay for the new stash...what was he willing to pay! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Glad you stopped by my blog! Vickie #71

  19. That's a great LO Ali, love the colours. Hope your colleague continues to recover from the op. Lol to eating cake with my socks! Just trying to get it all in one shot!!

  23. Hi Ali, Thank you soooo much for introducing me to the wonderful world of Art Journaling! Here's to many more 'messy' afternoons! I'm not getting any work done because I'm looking at all the wonderful blogs out there! Love all your stuff
