Made to Measure

Today I was trying to explain to my husband that I needed some sort of file in the kitchen to keep the kids school letters and gumpf in. I looked in catalogues and online but couldn't find anything I liked. So, when he took the kids football (my little man got man of the match today and we are beaming with pride!) I decide to make my own.

Now, I completely winged this project from A4 cardstock, everything done by eye, not a measurement in sight (other than using the fab scoreboard to make the concertina parts of the folder.)

I added some pockets to the front and back to slot some note cards into. Thought this would also be good for any school tickets, raffle stubs etc

I punched a few scalloped circles to make tabs for each section.
So, now i can keep the kids stuff in some sort of order, no more late payments for trips, swimming, music lessons and what not!
That's it for today, off to spend some time with the family, thanks for coming by and see you soon.
Happy crafting

Please Take a Ticket!

I'm decorating my hall at the moment, I made some textured paint with sand and I'm slapping it on the walls then, quite literally, throwing iridescent glitter all over the wet paint. It looks lush and I'm about half way done with the painting. Just the skirting, coving and door frames to go!

Well, I've been at it for 3 1/2 hours today and have to stop so that I can clean up before school pick up. I had a few mins to spare today so I made this card that's been in my head for a while.

I'm usually a vintage girl but love the retro feel to this card.
