Watching the Clarity programme on Create and Craft this morning, I was impressed by the skep (beehive)that Barbara showed us how to make. As I have a little bee stamp I decided to make a card using this technique and this is the result. The flower and quote stamps are from my Sheena Douglass collection. The card is A5 size.

A friend of mine gave me a little book brooch at Christmas and well, I just had to try to replicate it didn't I?! I found making the covers easy enough due to my cartonnage course but the signatures (inside sets of pages) were more of a challenge as I had never done that before. With the aid of some video tutorials I managed to stitch them together and insert them into the covers. It was a good learning curve and although not completely happy with the result, I will certainly make one again. By the way, the little book measures 3.5cm x 4cm so really tiny!
