Adding the Pretty Stuff

Last week on Bubbly Funk's emag I made a wallet-folder type thing which I plan to fill with some cards to make a gift for someone at C-word-time.
I left it looking like this:

All a bit boring really, so it definitely needed a bit of "prettifying" or "tarting-up"
I used more papers and chipboard (that gorgeous swirly-scrolly-leafy thing and one of the set of peony flowers) from Bubbly Funk's delicious June kit plus some of my own stash (you see, I do use the stuff I buy and hoard,...eventually) to decorate the front of the folder.

My next task wil be to make something to fill the pockets inside with, but that'll be another week's project.
If you've never visited Bubbly Scrumptious before, you're missing out on a fab crafty magazine. There are new projects most days and they're building up into quite a library - ideas for fabulous scrap pages, books, albums, wall-hangings, cards - all sorts of things which can't fail to inspire your creativity - definitely worth grabbing a coffee before you start browsing!
That's my advert for the day.

Thanks for visiting

Scrummy! Lovely papers and stuff. Glad you're strong enough to use your 'own' stash, perhaps you should start a support group!! So let's see you desk then?!!
