Crafty Catz are back!

Good morning all, well it's Friday and the news for today is that Crafty Catz are back after our 2 week summer break and we are all refreshed and ready to go with a brand new challenge and the theme this week has been chosen by the wonderful Christine and she wants to see 'Stitching, real or faux plus the option of adding some material to your project too'  So... take up the challenge with the option and you will be entered into both prize draws for both sponsors....But please remember to state what if any material has been used. If you choose to leave out the option of material  and just cover the stitching  you will be entered into the  prize from our second sponsor.  Which brings us nicely on to our fabulous sponsors for this week and they are:
5 digital stamps


AUGUST prize

Wow 2 fabulous prizes!  So onto my project for this week.  As Ria will shortly be returning to school to study for her A levels we have made a joint project in the form of a study notes book.  Ria coloured the fabulous 'Col Macallan' from Kenny K then we used 2 pages from a papermania board book as a cover, kept them 'naked' stamped some cogs on, added some faux stitching round the edges, matted the 'Col' on to some foiled paper from DCWV and finished off with some leather cogs.  The leather is actually from an old furniture sample book and is cut using TH Gadget Gears and the Big Shot.  We both LOVE how this turned out and I shall certainly be looking through my materials scraps again, it's not something I think to use on my cards very often

I would like to enter this book into the following challenges:
The Crazy Challenge #152 ~ Animals
Tuesday Throwdown #161 ~ Use your scraps
ClearlyiStamp #5 ~ School time
