Butterfly Babies and Nicecrane Designs

Hello Everybody,

Thanks again for all your lovely comments, they were very much appreciated.

Thanks to the rain, crafting is high on the agenda again. 🙂

Just as well … the Out of a Hat Creations Challenge for this week is to make a Tag Book, which fitted in very nicely with some new digi stamps I got earlier this week. The digi stamp set is called Butterfly Babies Book and it is by Nicecrane Designs …

Tag Book

This is what it looks like from the outside. The backgrounds to all the pages are hand stamped by me, but you could equally well use some pretty papers. The butterfly digi stamps were already pre-coloured and absolutely beautiful. See for yourself …

Tag 2   Tag 3 Tag 4   Tag 5 Tag 6   Tag 7

These were all the digi stamps in the set. This is what the tag book looks like opened out …

Open Book

Well I couldn’t stop here … as it would make a nice keep sake present, a box was required. To decorate the box lid I used another digi stamp from the Vintage Library Cards set, again by Nicecrane Designs. This one wasn’t pre-coloured, but very easy to colour in … here it is …

Tag Book Box

I just added the sentiment at the bottom, the Medaillon image, the gems and the ribbon … plus a little bit of corner punching and some paper ribbon on the sides, which you can’t see on the picture.

I quite like those Library Cards, apart from using them inside a book, they would make nice gift cards even for Kindle editions, they can be used for journaling … hmmm … Well I won’t say too much, because I got another project in mind. Stay tuned …

Please feel free to visit Ignacio’s website and check through his designs. I love what he does and everything is very reasonable priced. Initially the price appears in US$, but if you look down the side bar on your right hand, you’ll find a currency converter and you can get the prices in £ and Euros.

And yes, as you probably guessed, I have been cheeky and asked if he would like me to be part of his Design Team … and he said Yes.

Hope you enjoyed my project.

See you soon and

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
