Ornaments, Tags and Mini Albums ... oh so busy

I've been busy busy busy these past few weeks, still finding my niche in the crafting world and 'finding' my style. Firstly I've made some lovely little Christmas ornaments for a swap over at 'Scrappers Obsessionz' which is a New Zealand and Australian crafting forum, I chose to make heart shapes decorated in a simple 'crazy quilt' style, I saw a tutorial on Lenecca's youtube channel that was very easy to follow and thought I'd give it a try. I love the way they turned out and I really hope the ladies receiving them will like them too.

Next up was a 'Junked Up Doily Tag' swap also hosted at 'Scrappers Obsessionz', I didn't take individual photos of the tags I made but I did show them in a video which you can find here.

I also somehow found time to create my very first mini album. I did a swap with Kimibee09 on YouTube, we agreed to make the minis in a Shabby Chic style interpreted any way we wanted. I've never really done Shabby Chic before so was flying a little blind but I did find some lovely papers to help me along. I used the 'Sweet Nothings' collection by Kaisercraft which are really gorgeous. I filmed the album once it was complete so you can see it all HERE

I really do love the way it turned out but I don't think I captured 'Shabby Chic' the way I imagine it to be. I'm going to keep trying at this theme and see what I can come up with.

You can also see the gorgeous album Kim made for me in her video here

and if you'd like to see a very long video of me opening up my package and seeing the album for the first time, you can watch it HERE :)

Thank you so much for stopping by :)
