Fit for a Princess and some Safmat

Its challenge time again over at Passion for Promarkers and its my choice this week on the challenge and I've opted for Fit for a Princess given Fridays lovely wedding and our new Princess William or Duchess Catherine.  If I was her I'd be kicking off saying I didnt want to be a duchess I wanna be a pwincess!
For this I made a little notebook, tutorial for which is here and used the pretty Tilda Princess stamp coloured with promarkers.  On the inside I stamped the princess circle (from stamping all day) surrounded by tapestry stamps and glued this to the back of the image so theres something to look at on the inside too.  Flowers are from QVC and the punched leaves are mother of pearl.  Papers are from Bearly Mines Spring Flight set here.  You can get the notebooks in Asda (18p!)

Hope you can come over and join in at Passion for Promarkers and make something fit for a princess, there is a stamping kit from Letraset up for grabs yay!

This is my new moniker for my cards using a nearly invisible film called Safmat by Letraset.  I've used it for years mainly for scrapbooking, printing text on to put anywhere on the layout, its printable and you can use your punches and nesties with it easily.  Here I've used it for my personal stamp, printed and punched out.  For more ideas have a look on the letraset blog here.  Set your printer to transparancy and lower the print quality to everyday and leave it to dry for a while before cutting out and burnishing on your design.
