Journal Page and something a bit different

Hello Everyone from a sunny NE UK Coast.  Hope the weather is nice where you are and a big thank you for sharing your day with me by popping in to Jumbled Crafts.

At Art Journal Journey the theme is 'If Music be the Food of Love.' 

I love Shakespeare works so couldn't resist a digital page with the master himself centre stage. I also fused in a bit of Twelfth Night that inspired the theme for the challenge 

I have been making some more things for the CatS Protection where my daughter organizes events to raise funds.

These are a follow on from the spectacle wipe holders but much larger as they have two big tea sachets inside. My daughter got the tea sachets online so they weren't too expensive. I designed the holder which is very simple and all in one piece. Our old printer still had some ink left in so I used it all up printing the designs on the card. The card is only £1 for 15 sheets at The Works so not an expensive make at all.
If anyone is interesting in making any I will write a tutorial with the template etc. They would be nice as little gifts or for fund raising. I stuck little cat stickers on them as they are for the Cats Protection

Have a great day all.

    The tea bag holders are a great idea for raising money for charities. . I would definitely be interested in how you made them. I imagine they would be quite easy to post as a gift as well.

  8. Oh wow Chrissie, you have been one busy lady! The Shakespeare iece is superb and I adore your little tea bag thingies, so clever and for a very good cause!

  9. I'm sadly not a fan of Shakespeare, but I'm definitely a fan of your lovely digital entry. This is superb.

    I really LOVE the tea bag holders, and I can see them selling quickly, too. Both Bleubeard and Squiggles give them two paws up and think they are the Cat's meow (couldn't help myself).

  10. Beautiful and creative page Chrissie, loving the tea bag holders...love the gorgeous colours too.xx

  11. Love your Shakespeare page Chrissie, great layering of the images. The
    teabag holders are a great idea, love the designs.

    Love what you've been creating for the fundraising too - clever idea in a very good cause.
