Peekaboo, I see you!

Hello at last! I've been attempting to blog since Monday but Blogger has been refusing to post my pictures! Fingers crossed I can now share this scrapbook page with you.

It's based on one from the monthly magazine all demonstrators receive: Impressions, April 2012. It's yet another great reason to become a demonstrator. It is full of great colour combinations, gorgeous projects and ideas with all sorts of products.
 Here's a view with the peekaboo flaps open. Such a cute way to add additional photos, journalling and stamped images without taking away from the main image. I've used Delicate Doilies DSP, which has this lovely Wisteria Wonder colour featured. The background stamping came from the set (soon to be retired!) Spiced Paisley, stamped in Wisteria Wonder.

Here's a close up of the little flaps. They were made by punching out Wisteria Wonder card using the Decorative Label Punch. Then the centre square was punched out. To attach the flaps the Jewellry Tag Punch created a hinge so the windows open and close!

Did you spot the pleated satin ribbon? Yes! It's going to be available from 1st May in a few different colours. The colour you can see is Blushing Bride. Consider this your sneak peek! There is another coming later in this post too....

Lastly here's a close-up of the decoration I made. It's using a cocktail stick with a card flag wrapped around it. There's a Soft Suede butterfly with jewel and a stamped image (also stamped using Spiced Paisley) and cut out. The Tiny Tag was tied on with BAKERS TWINE! Yes, there's bakers twine in the new Summer Mini catalogue. I've used white but there are also the striped versions in the 2011-13 In Colors. Yum-o!
