zetti pages.

I have just got back from a holiday on my sister in law, and brother in laws boat on the Norfolk Broads. It was brilliant too, thank you Suze and Jim. We took our craft boxes with us and thought we would do some Zetti pages. Well, as I have only made one before, I followed Suze on this first page. There was no stopping me then, the rest of these pages then followed. They are so much fun to do, you can make them as bright and colourful as you wish and let your imagination flow.

Zetti Page.

Today I made my first 5x5 Zetti Page and had fun doing so. I put a colour wash on watercolour paper, then the paper was glued onto mount board. Once I have made some more, I will make them into a book.

Altered Coasters.

I have just started swapping coasters with Suze, these are the two I have made so far, (back and front).

Vintage chunky book page.

This is my first page of a 5x5 chunky book, that I will be swapping with Suze. Our theme is Vintage. Front page was ink stamped paper, the lady image was glued onto card to make it stand out. I used a paper napkin with pansies on in the right hand corner, some lace and lilac braiding. The inside was ink stamped The victorian image was used as a pocket to hold little postcards and photos, etc.

Altered Cd.

This altered CD was made for my latest swap with Suze.


I have just recently got back into the swing of things, after a long time out from doing any crafts. I have been tracing my family history which can be very time consuming. I have been doing this for nearly three years, and, while it can be very rewarding, it can be very painstaking also, as any one doing the same will know. I do a regular swap with my sister in law Suze, and here are four ATCs that I have sent to her.

Spring gothic arch.

Here is my Spring arch for this weeks challenge on Gothic arches. I did the background a dark green, though it looks brown in the picture, with a glittery effect on top. The small arch was covered with yellow tissue paper and has a fine white and gold braid round it. Some narcissus flowers were then added, then a fairy, wearing a daffodil hat.

I made these arches last year and have decided to add them to my blog.
The first two pic's show an arch with doors closed and open.
I loved making these three arches. They were the first three I made, I have been hooked on making them ever since.

Jumbo playing card.

This was a jumbo, Queen of Spades playing card, that I altered.

I made these fabric postcards some time ago. Rainy days was made for a group swap. The background material reminded me of the saying, " Its Raining Cats and Dogs ". In this case, Raining Dogs and Dogs, LOL.
Sunday Best was made for a swap with my sister-in -law Suze.
