Twist ‘n’ Pop Birthday

Hello Crafters

Hope you are all having a great week producing beautiful moments in time!

This week I decided to have a go at this twist ‘n’ pop craze that every one seemed to be doing, a little behind I know but none the less I got there! First I started by having a look at images and YouTube and then I decided I wanted something different for the grandchildren so said to myself ‘ Let’s have a go!’

I was so pleased as I measured and made it all, and it worked first time.

Happy Ellie Birthday!

Hello Crafters

How’s your crafting days going? This week, when I have been getting in from work, I have been sneaking off to my craft room. Unusual for me, as I’m usually sorting bits out ad never seem to get any ‘time’ during the week, but I just went there and played. This resulted in 2 little cards, and a new sort of style for me, felt quite brave actually!

This one was made around a stamp from Woodware, originally bought last year to use on a baby project, and didn’t in the end, as you do. This time I just wanted to try some colouring, so stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Once he was finished, I just had to give him a home, and I have been really trying to use my scraps, so this card was made from all the scrap bits of paper and unused cut-outs from previous projects. I loved him so much, I did another.

…..and of course, equally loved this too! So I now have 2 children’s reserved cards, and I have left the greeting blank inside, so I can fill this out for the occasion when needed.

Craft Items:

Hope this made you smile as much as it did me. Have a great week

Fairy Shaker Birthday

Hello Crafters

Well yet again I cannot believe that another weekend is almost over, ever feel like ‘Stop the world I want to get off!’ I feel like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, ‘I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!’

However I have completed my lesson kits and dates booked, so *excited* I am! It will be so much fun departing knowledge to great people whilst doing something I love, sigh…..meanwhile back on the gravy train, life must go on! Indeed it does, so I have just a little card to share with you. It was made for my great niece (oh I do sound old), but again those little fairies came out to play and help me make her smile.

I used Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends for the main characters, Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Large for the window, Cheery Lynn Horizon Fishtail Banners for the sentiment.

Inside the window, Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds and Mama Elephant Grassy Trio.

The background papers were from The Range.

Short and sweet tonight, but hopefully I will have more time to chat next week, beside Poldark has just started, and a woman has to do what a woman has to do! 🙂

Have a wonderfully crafty week!
