Kingfisher – Altered Book

Hi everyone,

I hope you are enjoying the weekend. Happy Mothers Day to all of you crafting Mums.

An exciting day today for Crafty Individuals. They are launching some fantastic new stamps and pretty papers on Hochanda TV [Freesat 817, Sky 673 and freeview 85]. They have a show today the 31st March at 3 p.m. and tomorrow the 1st April at 11 p.m and 4 p.m. If you miss the shows you can go to the Hochanda TV web page and watch the shows via rewind.

Just to give you a quick heads up on the stamps featured on the show, the stamp images are of owls, owl, hare, hummingbirds and kingfisher. All stamp designs are by Maria Kitano for Crafty Individuals.

Here is today’s project using some of the fabulous new pretty papers. They are really lovely.  Other designs on the papers are a blue tit and hummingbirds.  Do keep an eye out for those.


For this project, I painted one of those blank books with paint and then added a panel of the pretty paper which I further decorated with paint and stencils and some bling.

I also made a little box to pop it into.


More of the card samples, using the new Crafty Individuals stamps, will be posted over on my card blog over the next week.


Thank you for looking.

Take care,

Flo xx

  3. Wow!!! Such amazing sample for the new releases! I have already seen the sneaky peeks on CI blog, and I’m very impressed by the real look of the birds and the bunny, they are all amazing!!
    LOVE how you coloured the kingfisher and the striking design of your book and box!!! Those gems all around are a fabulous touch, brilliant!!! The paper is so sweet and this remember me that I have a beautiful old CI paper pad, still unused…. such a shame! I have to stop my paper hoarding!! LOL 😀
