Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and not affected by the awful wind or the non stop torrential rain. Frustratingly we had a huge pane of glass blow out of our round seed house, it had made a real mess as it smashed on the slabs out side the seed house. Paul is just going to replace it with plastic for now, it's not ours so we aren't going to pay out that much, but we do use it, if we mention it to Mr S, he would probably say that it would be best to just take it down so we will 'manage' it for now! Apart from the fact that we have hundreds of seedlings 🌱 in there right now. It worked great for peppers and chilli plants through the summer last year and for over wintering tender perrenials.
Well I had my 2nd Vaccination yesterday again I felt nothing, he was a funny chap though, at first I thought that he might be blind as he didn't make eye contact and he did this funny eye rolling thing 🙄🙄🤣, I kept looking at Paul for reassurance, he asked all the same questions as last time, apart from he also asked if I had any strong side effects last time, I explained about my heart racing a lot and how I felt, he asked if I sought advice, I explained that I had spoken to my GP who had confirmed that it was ok for me to have the 2nd Vaccination, he asked if I had a letter to confirm, luckily she had text me so I showed him that. He said had I not been able to show evidence that it was OK, he wouldn't have been able to give me the Vaccination. (Funny thing was I didn't know whether he could see my phone, I have never seen anyone roll there eyes like that)👀. He really went into great detail about looking for blood clots etc which I was grateful for. As I am writing this I felt very cold and a little achy but so far that's it. We kept tea simple just in case I felt nauseous, I just fancied a jacket potato, fingers crossed nothing changes. 🤞
Now the first photobI have shared today is of a Stamp Storage Folder that I made last week for my Pink Frog stamps, following Hazel Eaton who Demo's Pink Frog and Julie Hickey Stamps on Craft Store, you can also find her Demo on Dragons Paper Craft on Facebook. It's a super simple album, I can definitely share step by step with you if any of you want to make one.
To store the stamps on the pages I stuck the acetate that the stamps come to you on to one side, then I stamped the complete stamp set on the opposite page and then placed the top layer of acetate over the stamped image, that way you could Attach the masks that you have cut (for the flower stamps) on that side. I used a combination of Pearlywinks sprays and Distress Oxides to create the backgrounds for front and back covers, I added some of the stamps randomly in the background, I used Lily stamps for the front page and some texture paste through the a mask.
I quite like how it turned out and want to make a smaller landscape one for my Julie Hickey stamps.
