Pollycraft - Anything but a card...

Morning All!

I hope you're all well and ready for another week?  Mine is going to be a mega busy one as I try and get all my jobs jobbed, hopefully I'll make at least a small dent in the list lol!

Another Monday means another Pollycraft Challenge and this week we're back to normal with weekly challenges.  Today's has been set by my teamie Jane and the theme is...

ANYTHING BUT A CARD

Hmmmm, get your thinking caps on!  It was quite a simple one for me actually as I'd bought myself a new DT workbook that was crying out to be blinged up!!  Here it is before...



And now...



You like?!...



This should see me through the first half of 2012 anyway  :o)  This week we're sponsored by...



Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn who are offering a fabby prize!

Do you write down all your card ingredients and DT work?  What do you use to log everything?  I know pen and paper is a bit old school but (normally!) I think about what I need to do just as I've switched my computer off so at least this way I can still see what I need to do!

Right I'd better get busy, me and Mum  are going shopping today for household bits (boring!) and then onto Bluewater for new work clothes and new bedroom bits, yaaaaay!!  I've already spent my first months wages and haven't even worked a day yet lol!

See you soon peeps,
Much love,

I love this beautiful notebook Cazza. Gorgeous coloring and pretty dp. Hmm, if I make one of these books will I be more organized -- probably not lol!

Arabella said...

This is awesome Cazza! I love how you have decorated this book! What a great idea to keep a DT workbook! I just have random scraps of paper around!

I love your book all jazzed up, very pretty...I'm so bad with books I would forget to turn the page, I'm back to strips of papers and a paper clip, the clip reminds me to colour an image for the challenge, write about what I used, enter the challenge when I post, then I toss the paper away...works for me...

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Cazza, I hope you are well honey, sorry I havent' been over for a bit, but I am always checking our your creations!

I love this project! I have got exactly the same book and I keep thinking I should cover it, you have given me the inspiration!

I have two of these books, the A4 size and the A5 one. My DT stuff is in the bigger book and other challenges in the other one! I do find it easier to write it down as I tend to scribble down what I've used as I go along and sometimes its just too much of a faff to get the laptop on!

Anyway, have a great day today! Pami x
