With Love & A Little Gift

Hello Crafters

Have you had a wonderful crafty week? Been creative and ideas flowing? I hope so!

My brain had been thinking (Never a good idea according to Mr Kim!) and I think I talk too much on my blog, so I am going to try and shorten the written stuff, and give you more visuals, as I am well aware that we all have really busy lives, and mine just got really busy, as from tomorrow am back in the world of full time work!!!!

So here you go:

This was made for a friend and I wanted to add a little gift too. The following was used to make them:

The calendar was made the same as some I did before, and you can see that post here.

The Card:

Happy Crafting!

You Get Better With Age

Hello Crafters

How has your week been so far? Here we have been enjoying the company of family, our first visitors in our new home since the building works were finished and time has been flying, so much so I missed my regular post yesterday, but I hope you can forgive me as we had a lot of catching up to do 🙂

I did manage to make a card this week and it was something that has been spinning around my head, which was experimenting with stencils and distress inks. The result was this:

Item Used:

As you can tell I love bright colours, and I have been doing some colouring classes and wanted to bring some colours together to make you feel good and smile, whilst using multiple stencils to create a background image. I used the texture stamps to add a bit of pzazz to the corners. To make the colour pop, I used a black fine liner round the shapes. Think it came together quite well.

Hope you have a great week.

Gearing Up!

Hello Crafters

Hope the little bit of warm weather has made us all feel a bit brighter, and although Mr Frosty is trying hard to creep back in, ignore him the next few days, Mr Rain also wants to make an appearance but I just think the flowers need to be watered and it’s much easier to do it all at once instead of separately!

I’m a little late this week, just didn’t seem to stop all weekend, and I am still trying to scrapbook, and I am getting there and can’t wait to share it with you, so working my little fingers to the bone to hopefully proudly display this work of art……

For now though I have made a card, which was conjured up whilst I slumbered, and was woken up with the idea and had an overwhelming urge (don’t get them much these days), to bolt into the card room and as they say ‘Get It Down‘. Weird how my brain actually thought about everything, who says we don’t dream in colour!

I must admit I do like this abstract style of card, and the theme running in my head was metal colours hence the blue grey look.

Items Used:

The paper is 160 gsm so wasn’t very thick, but I used 2mm foam tape on the outside and inside edge of the frame which made it nice and solid.

I was so pleased with the finished item, as it was better than what I had in my mind’s eye. Still wondering what I was thinking about to wake up with this image…..maybe I was a mechanical engineer in my last life!

Happy crafting
