Sunday Recovery

Hello Crafters

Well on Sunday I was rummaging,moving and sorting in my craft room to make space and try to gain every last inch out of the room I have, to the point where I have looked at it half hour later and thought ‘How the divil did I get that in there!’, but I also turned the way I work round so I have more working top space, and I can have my mini studio set up so I don’t have to keep pulling it up and down from the top of the cupboard, as one of these days I am sure, all the flowers and cherubs and bits and bobs are going to end up gliding down and knocking sense into me! What brought all this on? I had an absolutely wonderful day out with my craft buddy at Make-It Farnborough last Saturday and needed to find extra space for a ‘few wee things’. It was brilliant.

It wasn’t too crowded, all the stalls were well laid out and easy to get to, plenty of places to sit and eat, and the coffee was good too! They also had the most amazing posh portaloo’s, I have ever seen….even had toilet paper….really thought I had gone into the VIP area by mistake!

We left at around 7.oo am (yes, it was way too early, but we were excited!) and arrived at 9.00 am ready for the opening at 9.30. The journey was pleasant and no major hold ups, not even the M3 road works could get us down, we just happily chin wagged our way along until we got there!

On Sunday I was having a play with some of the things I bought and produced this:

Anyway, that’s my last few days, and oh yes, I was naughty, but I loved it, so no regrets here, just got lots of play time to look forward to!!

Happy Crafting

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.

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

Pop Up Box with a difference!

Hello Crafters

Have you had a good weekend? I am a little late today posting as we had family round for dinner, and I think I bored them silly with all the healthy food talk, of which I am now an avid fan. Mind you I have also never eaten so much in my life!

Talking about healthy, it was Mr Kim’s birthday last week, so the theme for my little pop up was about veggies. So cute these little Lawn Fawn fellas!

Here you can see the box folded flat ready to send:


Then you release the box and up it pops!:

Although it looks like just a pop up box, it has a secret….the little name tags pull up to show another veggie underneath! It was my first veggie box but also my first slider too!

I used the Lawn Fawn Slider dies to make the holes. It was quite complex to get the slider in the right place, but it looks like the veggies are all ready to harvest. Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders was used as the strutts in between to connect the other veggies to and keep the box shape.

The box was made using Spellbinders scalloped pop up box and then covered in the paper.

I used blue fun foam cut with Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds for the backdrop. They were all stamped with Memento Inks, and the Misty tool was used, so I could stamp the images twice to get a real indepth colour to them. These are just so much fun, and there is no end to  what you can do with them.

Well I hope you had a super sunday with good company and fine food. Have a wonderful week.
