This weeks Friday dare is...

Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to Distress you all, or at least your cards with this weeks dare. You can make a card for any season, any holiday, any occasion but you need to use either a fingernail, curled edges, sandpaper, tearing, anything you like really as long as looks like it's had a fair bit or wear and tear.

I ripped the brown paper and then used my scissors to 'distress' the inside of the cut out square. I then went over it with my Dark Brown Chalk Pad (love that pad) to give it a bit of age.

The little bird shape is something I drew the other day! I covered both sides with Papermania paper and added some thread so that the bird could spin. The flower I received from Alina (Nowalinka) and the buttons are by Doodlebug.

Thanks for looking - now off to have a look at everyone else's ;)


Well I pulled it out this morning and finally (jumping with glee) made this little cutie!!!

Its a small address book that matches the first Bird card I did the other day. And I am so happy with it!!
The Bind-It-All is so easy to use (great news for me) and I never even watched the DVD. I did have to fiddle with the front and back covers as I only punched 5 holes in the address pages, so when I came to do the covers it was quite tight to make sure I only punched the 5 holes.

I wanted to get the photos taken to put on here, that I never even waited for the glue to dry - as you can see with the buttons!

Inside pages I did on my computer, printed them off, then cut them to size.

Well for this being my first attempt, and that I wanted to do something more than just bind a few note pads - I am really pleased with the outcome!! :o))
