Altered Coffee tins

Hello Again !
Since I blogged twice yesterday I thought i would try and keep up the good work and blog again today :)
I decided to alter some coffee tins i have been saving up, since they are taking up to much space in my cupboards, I have lots of them thanks to my partner being a Coffeeholic! lol 
They are simply decorated as once I started  them i didn't really know what to do with them.
I have before and after pictures..
I also started an Album tonight, hopefully i can get it finished tomorrow and show you what i made.
Hope you all had a lovely day! 

The empty coffee tins washed and ready to alter

The Altered Coffee Tins, I just popped some pens and brushes into the tins for the photo
I am not quite sure what i am going to use them for, although the middle one is full of Buttons 
 and that's what that one will be used for ( i don't have many buttons ) 
Thanks for stopping by :)

Junk Journal Inspired By Marianne kensington on YT

I was inspired to make this Junk Journal after coming across Marianne Kensington Youtube channel, Marianne makes the most amazing Journal some using hard back books covers and sewing in your own signatures, so after a week or two of watching these video's over and over, i decided to make one myself.
My journal is no way near as good as Marianne's but not bad for a first attempt.
using the covers including the spine of an old hard back book, I made Three signatures Five pages in each all different sizes and using a variety of papers I surprisingly came up with this! 
I didn't take photo's of every single page but have taken a good selection
Have a great day! :) .

Thanks for looking :)

Prima romance Novel File Mini Album


I was inspired to make this Album after watching several videos on file folder Mini Albums 
So A Thank you to Deborah Hemsworth and ThepaperAddiction Both ladies are on YouTube.

I made this little File Mini Album using Prima's Romance Novel Papers.
The papers are lovely to work with, all the lovely designs and die cuts that come with the paper pad
makes it quick and easy to assemble an album.
I used the Tim Holtz  File tab on the edge Die to give the file tab look.
created a few pockets for tags and photo mats.
The lovely flower on the front was made by a fellow crafter called Pat, we were in a swap back last year and  she made me the flower, so out it came from my stash. 
I used a small piece of black lace trim on a few of pockets.
All the tags are from the paper collection.
I hope you like it..
please leave a comment 
I hope you are all having a great day! 
Yvonne :) 

Thanks for taking the time to look
