Memory Book Using Tonic Studio Dies

Hi Again!

Today I thought I would share something a little different with you.

I have started a memory book using one of the Tonic Studios Memory Book Maker sets.
These Die sets make life so much easier to make mini books with multiple layering page size dies.

I have used the Memory Book Maker Base Creator and the Keepsake Book Maker Simple Spines dies sets to create the book base. I have used 250gsm Ivory card to cut out my pages and covers.

Tonic studios have many different bookmaker die sets and their youtube channel has plenty of videos showing you how to assemble them.

I have cut craft card and scrapbooking paper to layer onto my cover as my base and decorated with paper flowers and a die cut frame. The frame is also cut out of Ivory card, I have coloured it with Prima antiquing waxes and a little white gesso.

Under the flowers I have layered some Silk fibres and a few filigree swirls from the sizzix adornments set. These are cut out of craft card and coloured with gold antiquing wax.

The flowers are assembled and then spritzed with Distress Oxide sprays.
 The three large flowers are handmade using a die set from Marianne Designs  and the little white roses are store bought which I have sponged with blue ink .

Supplies Used:

Marianne Designs - LR0546 Beautiful Flower
Sizzix Thinlets - Adorned
Memory Box - Victorian Frame  ( an older set from my stash)

Don't forget to pop into the shop where you can preorder these products and many more. 

I hope you like this project, 
please let me know if you would like me to share with you some of the 
pages that I make.

Until Next Time

Hi everyone today it is my turn to share on the blog.  For my inspiration today I have been wanting to get back into the mixed media for while, and having spent the weekend watching lots of different artists, it has inspired me to get back into it.  I have thoroughly enjoyed completing my mixed media art tag.

I have used some old inks, gesso, 3rd texture beads, patterned paper, a feather, heshion, some sewing and stamps from Darkroom Door to complete my tag, which is on corrugated cardboard.

supplies used:

Darkroom Door Stamp - Hearts
Darkroom Door Stamp - French Script
Darkroom Door Stamp - Robin
Other items used are listed on my blog

I hope that everyone is keeping safe in these uncertain and trying times and that you are finding time to be creative. 

Please join us with this months challenge.

Until next time - Happy Crafting
