Sunday, 2 May 2010


Another late night filled with crafting. I woke at 12 am and the coughing did not ease enough for me to sleep until 3am, no exaggeration! I am utterly exhausted and to cap it all off, somewhere between Saturday afternoon and the small hours of Sunday I have managed to pick up a cold.

Well that's quite enough of the self pity and on to today's project, hoorah! 

Have you ever made a CD for a friend or loved one? Perhaps you recorded a special message or made a compilation of their favourite songs? I have never done this I must admit, far too complicated. My twin sister on the other hand is forever "burning" a CD or two and has complained before about how dull the case is and how nice it would be if you could get personalised and/or pretty outer covers. 

I came up with this...

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I took the case apart and placed designer series paper inside the back cover.

You'll notice that I have used cardstock and ink from the Earth Elements Colour Family, I think these colours are to die for!

Cardstock: More Mustard and Old Olive, a bit of textured More Mustard for the belly band
Ink: Versa Mark, Chocolate Chip and More Mustard
Stamp Sets: Cheer and Wishes, Circle Circus and Vintage Labels (retired)
Accessories: Silver Elastic cord, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" circle punch and  Designer series paper, corner rounder
Non Stampin' Up!: CD case

Ta Ta for now

Clever girl, I'm sure your twin will be pleased with the result.

I love your ideas Alex! Homemade CDs are such a lovely gift and customised packaging makes it even more special. Earth Elements are my favourite too but I won't be able to decide once the new colours come in - they're ALL so gorgeous!
