Below cards are the perfect size for project life pages: I cut markerpaper the correct size. The stamps are by Penny Black. Coloured with Copic markers.

These cards are my new addiction, they are not to difficult to make and can be completed in one evening. There are some new ones I will show you in the next post!

Remember  the Pixie dust stamps from a few posts ago (http://fortyonebee.com/?p=241)? During the easter weekend, I used stamps and leftover paper to create two fairy wall decor pieces, 1 for my daughter and 1 for my niece.

The basic structure is the same as used for the layered cards in my last post: (http://fortyonebee.com/?p=275) only this time I put the card in this 3d frame by Ikea.

This weekend I spent some time getting the old typewriter back to work. Its a Remington 12 and almost 100 years old. My grandfather gave it to me when I was around 10 years old. And indeed I got it operational again after a good cleaning. Although I still have some trouble with the ribbon. Now I write…euh…type on washi-tape and journaling cards and I’m thinking about some new possibilities.
