A couple of bits and bobs

Made a couple of bits and bobs over the last couple of days. The first was a nice little plain and simple book for my mum to keep all her little seed packets in AND she requested it to be plain so she could decorate it herself. Do we have a crafter in the making I ask myself. To be honest its so she can write on the cover and the envelopes. She is fantastic at calligraphy, but not many people seem to do it these days, which is a shame! I simply covered some 2mm chipboard, cut a bit bigger than the envelope size. Punched the holes and used some binding rings. Put a couple of eyelets in the covers and tied with "a mothers love" twill.
I also made 3 cards yesterday and have decided today I shall join most of the other bloggers out there and use up all those papers that we seem to save for no apparent reason. So over the next few weeks, you will probably see some rather dated papers being used up - I apologise now!!!
Supplies are: Brads, Eyelets, Rub-ons and blooms - Poppicrafts, Papers - DCWV and Pink petticoat, Ribbon - Ribbon Oasis
TFL and thanks to everyone who left me info on the round stamps that I am looking for - I am perusing ebay daily to see if I can find them, now I know who they are made by. x
