My first stationery set

Hiya folks, well so much for me keeping on track with my blog hey!!!!  But the good news is that I have been  busy making lots of cards and will be popping them on my blog over the next few days or so.

I've been wanting to make a stationery box for so long now and after watching many videos on You Tube, voila.  I thought I'd also enter this into this weeks "Vintage" theme over at Just Magnolia.

Below is a picture of the entire set, which comprises of the stationery box, notelet set, box of gift tags and a matching birthday book.  It did take me forever to make, just because I always do things the difficult way and never make life easy for

The inside of the stationery box holds the birthday book, large paper clip bookmarks, tags, postage stamps, a small address book and pen.

The papers are Anna Griffin, Tilda has been coloured with Copics which are available from the lovely Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

Thank you for popping by my lil oasis and for all the lovely comments you kindly take the time to leave.

luv 'n' crafty hugs

I have just made many comments on the Docrafts site. Just read your blog and hope all is settling. Troubles are never easy. Been there many times. You may have had a break gal, but you have returned with a bang!! Your work is still as gorgeous as ever. This set is EXQUISITE. I now need to find instructions and if mine comes out half as nice as this, I shall be very proud. Take care luvvie, Shibu
