Exploding 21st Birthday Box

Hello Crafters

Just popping by to share with you my latest box, that was lovingly made for our neighbour, who was turning 21…..what a lovely thing to be……can just about remember!

 

It took around 8 hours and I honestly cannot remember what I did, when I did it and what I used to make it, all I know is, I was pretty pleased when it was done!

Hope you all had a crafty weekend.

Man Cave!

ksc-birthday-man-cave-2

Hello Crafters

Hope you have had a great weekend. I’ve been de-cluttering, had an overwhelming urge to get rid of clutter around the place, think it makes you feel stressed, so I tried to find any space I could and put things away, instead of having them on show, and I feel much better for it! Mr Kim will probably take around a year to find everything, best game of hide and seek ever, cos by the time he asks me where it is I would have forgotten, so many a game will be had shortly!

So I haven’t had as much time this week as I would have liked due to the above (great for the soul though) so I found this to share, which I must admit took a bit of work, but came out a ‘right treat’, as some would say!

I suppose it should just be ‘Cave’ if we were being politically correct, but in this case, it really was a man cave! I worked it all out, measuring and cutting by hand and was quite pleased with how I managed to get the table at the right angle, cos it almost became an angled drawing board at one point and architect I was not aiming for!

So quick recap on dies used:

I’m sure we all wouldn’t mind a cave of our own, especially a ‘Crafters Cave’ in the back garden, would we!

Have a great week

Something For The Boys!

Hello Crafters

Hope you all had a great start and that you’re all back in the swing of things! I had so much fun at home that I didn’t want to go back to work, so busy that I felt like one blink and the holiday was gone! Don’t know about anyone else but I live for my weekends, and I’ve only 12 more years to retirement, bring it on!!!!

As I was so busy, I only managed to craft for 2 days, so didn’t get much done as I wanted too, and I am busy scrapbooking my Mum’s memories for the family, and I truly didn’t realise how long it takes, so hats off to the scrapbooking community, you have my respect! So today I have an older card to share, and clean forgot about it until I just come across it.

This was made for Mr Kim’s son-in-law, he is a great miniature battle re-enact fan (I think that’s what he does), but I made a card for him in knowledge of his interest.

 

I was pleased with the way it came out, not much die cutting, just a few tags and and the cut out, was effective though. I love the Memory Box Open Studios Dies, this one is Distressed Baptisia, and I used Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes – Red Blaze for the cut-out  background, tied in nicely with the theme. I then embossed the background with Spellbinders Garden Lattice Embossing Folder. These Tags from MFT – Stitched Fishtail Flags, I use them so often, a real must in my collection!

Well that’s it from me for now, must get back on the scrap booking wagon, got loads of albums to create and fill!

Have a great week.

Hugs
