Down The Rabbit Hole

Finally got this layout up for you to look at.  There are so many things going on it is very hard to name all the products that I used.  I had so much fun putting these layouts together for a local competition.  The photos were from a shoot I had done a few years ago called Alice on the Edge (Corimages).  I hope you enjoy looking at everything.
I have to say a big thank you to Kelly-Anne of From A Mother's Art for prompting me to put this into the competition.

A variety of bits and pieces here.  I used old jewellery and pulled apart an old watch.

Crinkle ribbon, flowers & dress form by Kaisercraft. 
Fauxscrew brad from Spotlight 

Twiddly Bitz gears, copper embossing powder,
acetate images & mini playing card by Kaisercraft.

Voila The Chef

I love this cute little guy.  Had to make up a card very quickly on Friday for a friend's birthday.
I used a paper from a Kaisercraft 61/2 x61/2 paper pad and the stamp is from Stamping Up.  Thankfully I had purchased a square card kit that included envelopes a while back so it made everything so easy.

Distressed Note Book

Here is one of my latest creations.  I wish I thought to take more photos, sorry.  This was a plain chipboard notebook that I purchased from Lincraft and inside the pages are thick and a vanilla colour and blank. (Darn not photographing that for you).

I pulled off the back and front pages and covered them in Core Destinations cardstock.  I sanded it back to reveal some of the pattern underneath.  I then used a bit of Tim Holtz Distress ink in black soot to add a bit more distressing.  The hardware is Tim Holtz die and I used the grunge board for the right hand piece that holds the book closed with velcro.  The metal was die cut out of an aluminium can and then another piece punched out with a Stamping Up Label punch.  I used distress inks and powders on the Hardware findings and a bit of distress stickles in vintage photo.

It is only a simple piece for a male friend who will be carrying it around so I didn't want to go all out on it.
