Blast from the Past

I was browsing through my old Christmas card pictures I like to do this now and again and I came across these ones and I thought I would share them with you, the book of tricks had just came out and I made so many of them that I totally sickened myself and gave the board away.


Tomorrow I have something special to share with you, I need to do the photography and as of today I have downed my paintbrush and it is now up to the big fella to finish it all off, mind you seeing as it was his works night out last night I wont hold my breath for anything being done on Sunday.

Gosh, now I really do feel like the only person who was never very impressed with the glitter girls lol. I gave the book a tricks a very wide berth.

My 2008 cards were all hand stamped images coloured using derwent watercolours, gastly K&Co papers (they were pretty at the time, just compared with you can get now.. they look gastly lol) & hand made hollie leaves with tiny needle felted berries.

Mornin' Jak...and I thought I was up early! I haven't used the boards for some time now but I think your selection still look pretty good...that's certainly a lot of bookatrix cards.

Don't worry Aj, I am another who gives the glitter girls a wide berth. I got carried away at the NEC years ago and bought two embossing boards. I have used one of them once and the other hasn't seen the light of day. Not my scene I'm afraid. I prefer stamping and now my die cutting machines. You've certainly got an array of different cards there Jak.

Funny how we change direction I had most of the boards but am now embossing crazy enjoy your day Jak.

I've never tried creating a bookatrix either but you certainly seem to have nailed the technique - a fab seelction of cards. I too look back at older cards (not just Christmas) and, the older they are, the more I cringe!!!

Seasons Greetings

your email today was really scary Jak - as I used my bookatrix board today. Had a card to make with books and gardening theme, and the idea came to me as I got into bed last night - probably about an hour before you did the posting! Now I don't get on with this board (only one I possess) but it was a case of nothing ventured nothing gained! As you will see from my blog I did persevere! ( and the board will probably hibernate for another couple of years LOL!)
