RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE ....AUGUST 2018 DT CREATION.


Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Sorry I haven't been about again lots going on in my life at the mo, and blogging is having to take a back seat for a while.

It's the 25th of the month again so soon, and time for the 
RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
There is always a lovely prize on offer to the winner donated by the very generous Mo.  
It's my turn for a DT creation this month so this is what I decided to make a word book of sorts.

  

I made this totally by hand cutting this out.
I had big No templates to use for the numbers.
The papers used were from a cheap Christmas paper pad from the works last year.
I made a slight mistake when cutting the books pages as I cut them at 5" high, and in hindsight they should have been 5.25" instead so the numbers fitted better.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I can not see any mistake...all I can see is a fabulous book! I love this idea. You are so talented to think of this idea and then to hand cut it!

I am going to dig out some chipboard albums that have sat in my stash for a few years. No longer will they remain untouched. Little Miss C and Little MR P and I will make them up for Christmas gifts that they can give to their friends!

What a stunner! Love that you were able to use up some old papers to create this, and those numbers look just fine to me! It's impressive to realize you did all the fussy cutting - the edges look so even, as though they were die cut. I loved all the little themed decorations you've tucked around and what a treasure this project will be. Good job Jenny. Hope all is well. Big hugs & TFS
