“Cut and Paste Fun”

Hi Friends,

After a really busy Thursday and work this morning, I have had a bit of a rest and a play in my glue book this afternoon. I am collecting magazine clippings at the moment so not a lot of stuff to collage so I decided to dig into my stash to see what I could find 🙂

I love anything floral, birds and butterflies, so I was drawn to this creating this page. I found some dictionary page, magazine cutting, a tag, stickers, die cuts, pattern paper, paper doily, washi tape and bits of a journaling card to create this collage. All I used for this was my glue stick and scissors. I tore some of the papers and didn’t really overthink it. I am adding the date somewhere on each page that I create, as that is the ‘memory keeper’ in me. This was really fun and relaxing 🙂

Hoping to have time to play a bit more over the weekend and I am also starting a Glue Book to get all my Recipes sorted 🙂

Have a great evening

“Making A GlueBook”

Hi Crafters,

I was away, last weekend and I showed my sister how to make a Junk Journal using a book cover. I decided I wanted to turn my small one into a Serendipity Journal and make a larger one into a Glue/Collage Journal.

Above is my small journal that will be for my Serendipity scraps. I just made one signature from some leftover pattern paper scraps, a few pages from one of my Daphne’s Diary magazine and a few bits of tea-dyed copy paper.

For my larger glue book, I added a bigger spine to a cover I had. This is how I did this baking paper technique above, “HERE”

You can see above, I just used some cardstock from my stash to glue my collages on and I used some Sari Silk to bind my pages in.

To finish off the front cover, I decided to use the image of one of my Daphne’s Diary magazines which had the door on it. I also and added a bit of doodling to the door. For these two projects, I used everything from my stash to create them.

I used one of my favourite quotes, that mum always said to me. Mum always knew things would work out and I think she has left her Faith with me…………….

This was a fun project to do and now I have a Glue Book to cut and paste all my fun images in. I will be gluing to my heart’s content!

I hope you have enjoyed this post and please feel free to let me know if you like my project 🙂

Thanks for stopping by………..
