When finished these fat books are going to be spectacular.
It is another miserable, wet day here today so I'm staying firmly put indoors in the warm. I need to make a birthday card for an order and I've also got 70 birthday invitations to make, so I've got lots to keep me occupied!

It is great to see the techniques others have used and the different ideas people have come up with. I thought it would be nice to share the pages with you as they arrive, there are photos of the pages I have received so far below:
I have been working on scrapbook pages and have been busy cutting out lots of bits and pieces for the layouts. As soon as I get around to putting it all together and finishing some pages I'll show you.

Some friends had their first baby in 2006 and I made them a scrapbook for their sons first year as a present. They had another baby in February so I am making another. I will make it with spaces for them to add photos as the year goes on. I have finally got around to making the first page which is below.
This is the same as the first page in the original scrapbook but the rest will be different, just go to think of enough ideas. 1 page done 19 to go!
I'll keep you posted with my progress.

I've finished all 14 pages and am quite happy with them. They are all decoupage and most have about 5 layers.
Here is a picture of all my finished pages:
I think I'm just going to stay in the warm for the rest of the day. We've had snow on and off here all morning but it's not settling at all. The wind is still blowing so the warm craft room sounds very appealing.
Hope everyone is having a good Easter weekend.

I've signed up for the new fat book swap on the Card Making & Papercraft Forum. This time we have the theme of fairies. I have a load of decoupage sheets ready for this and all I need to do now is sit down and cut everything out. If I finish any today I'll pop back and post some pictures.
In the meantime, hope everyone is having a good week and looking forward to the long weekend.

When my mother took the card I made, (and showed you earlier in the week), into her work colleague, another lady saw it and asked if I would make a card for her. She asked for - 'similar but different, still with butterflies' . I made the card today, there is a picture below.
Enjoy your evening

I did have a spare half an hour so I sorted out the store of ATC's I have made and have found some to put on the forum to swap later. I am a huge fan of the Art Nouveau period and have used this as inspiration for many items I have made. Here a a few of the ATC's, they all have images drawn by 'Mucha', a famous painter of the period. They are a collection he drew entitled 'Seasons' and each depicts a different season.
