WOYWW #404 - More Presents

My desk - as is - Tuesday evening before badminton!

I made four cards from the TH multi media dies from last week, then a journal page on the same theme.

I finally did the 8x8 scrapbook page of my pregnancy, to back my wedding page as our only son was a honeymoon surprise!

The BIG Pink Envelope is from my 19th Anniversary Card yesterday (gosh February was a busy month).

As for the "More Presents" a friend took me on a Magical Mystery Tour  to Hobbycraft, where she gave me a basket and said I could choose whatever I liked.

I got a new Tim Holtz (TH) alphabet Boardwalk, a couple of XCut mini die sets (exclusive to Hobbycraft, Travel & Haberdashery) a mini flower punch and some silver stickles.

Here are the cards I made with my TH multi Media dies. Sunshine and Moonlight, Buzz and Splash.

I checked out my stencil stash and found I had one the same as one die and 3 others which were a good match.

So decided to "replicate" the cards into a journal page...

And here's that scrapbook page too.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

Take care. God bless.

Hi BJ, I love how those TH MM dies make such fab elegant cards so quickly! I have a whole pile I die cut before I went into hospital that I shall start putting together soon, I think. Love how you replicated them in the journal too. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 XXX
