ginger blossom elegance

I really love the ginger blossom D/series paper that is currently available in the summer mini catalogue it goes so well with just about anything even my girlfriend Hamming it up in the Hat department sometimes its good not to act your age LOL

I have also used an assortment of stampin up punches for accent and decoration as well as some
pearl dots to accent the flower centre and rim of circle

scrap quilting

Like my up line Jacque I to have also been playing around with fabric and stamps or paper to look like fabric.
This Cheap photo album ( i brought this for carrying photos around prior to putting in albums ie a photo fax )
Has been covered with strips of /ginger Blossom paper to look like quilting strips , some stitching has been created with even dashes of stamp and write markers covered with crystal effects for gloss and definition beads have also been sewn in a zig zag pattern and covered with Crystal effects as bugle beads tend to cut cotton but if I had used seed beads that is not a problem and they would have given movement to the page/cover the edges have been secured with 7gypsies gaffer tape as stampin up dont have that product !!!yet
Tabs on pages have been made with matching paper and round tab punch the new scallop edge punch in the summer catalogue has also been used for effect along with embrace life stamp set used for embellishments
