One armed bandit!

Hi all

As some of you may know I had surgery on my left arm on Friday which has meant that it is very difficult for me to do much in the way of crafting because it's surprising how often you need your left arm to hold things steady etc while still working on a layout.

So therefore I stuck a piece of card stock to a lap tray and held it steady that way instead. I then set about doodling some elements for my page because using a guillotine to cut patterned paper would be quite tricky with only one arm. I then did some fussy cutting with a Fiskars blade to cut out the title and the longest doodle. I then tucked the photograph underneath the cut out elements and secured it in place with washi tape and added some stars to finish it off...

Another page for my uncles 80th album completed.

Thanks for stopping by...



  1. Beautiful doodles. I hope you heal quickly x

  3. Oh my this is stunning! I can feel a scraplift coming on. (Hope that's OK?)
