Sparkling Poinsettia’s


WOW what do we know? 2 posts in the same week :D.

OK it is my fault because I probably SHOULD have posted DLP sooner, but you know how it goes. I could say that RL got in the way but it’s more like laziness and the shear desire to lay about in the sun got in the way.

Anyway if you are still reading it is probably because you want to see the Sparkling Poinsettia 6×6 so lets get started.

This 6×6 mini is based on my 6×6 Fast and Easy Tutorial with a few minor changes. I made the pages to open UP for the 6×6 tags, the flaps cover the front from the spine side, the pockets are half pockets and closed using a paper element ( my choice to close them they could be left open ) and I used the brand new Kathy King hidden hinge plus binding. Then I simply added a flip feature in the back cover. I did use my favorite lace again ( how could I not? It is normally $0.70 an unit but since we can all use my discount of 15% ( use code DTMiki ) it comes out to about $0.60 an unit that’s like getting the seam binding for it free. So I used it twice ( on cover and on the spine ) with red and with green seam binding. I also used a bit of the seam binding on all the tags ( which are part of the collection all you do is cut them out ) Both the light green and the darker green are perfect matches. The papers are Sparkling Poinsettia from Tamra’s Country Craft Creation ( )

So who is ready for some pictures?

I am sorry about the quality of some of these pictures. Dale says he is getting me a new camera for my birthday ( last week ). I think he wants to get one so he doesn’t have to let me use his phone anymore 😀 In my defense we did have a storm moving in and the wind started blowing the pages around some.
