Easel Post it Note Holder~

Hi Girls

Me again, I don't know, don't post for ages and then twice on the same day.
I have been busy making some little post it note pad note holders. (Saw this done on C&C on tv the other day, Debbie from Craft Asylum was making them, so I thought I would give it a go).
So...I ended up making half a dozen, here are three of them.

I started with a piece of card that I folded in the traditional Easel card way, then stuck the post it notes to the bottom section. The wording "Notes" is done with the Letter Box Stamp from Clarity Stamps (I use this so much it's a wonder it has not worn out, I use it on loads of projects and the kids on the Summer Workshops always use it too).
The papers are all loose sheets from my stash, great way to use up lots of leftovers. I have finished them off with flowers, enamel dots, pearls and a few metal butterfly's.

Can it be September!!

Hi Girls

Sorry I have been missing in action lately.

I have had a few Commissions to get out the way including a 12x12 Scrapbook, so that took up a lot of time, now to top it all my lovely Daughter Eve and her Fiancée Sean have just got the Keys to their new house, so I have been busy helping their too.....Exciting and Emotional all at the same time. They are very happy and their house is so sweet.

I will show you the Kaisercraft Advent Calenders I am working on at a later date. They are quite big and alot of work so not had alot of time to do any other projects.
I am also waiting on photo's to do two "Boy" scrapbooks, so more big commissions, but hey I am not complaining, I love it!

Sweet Stampin' Cowboy/Girl Theme...Yee Ha!

Hello Girls.

Another Saturday means another great challenge waiting for you at Sweet Stampin'.
This weeks it's.....Yee Ha.....Cowboy/Cowgirl Theme. Our sponsors are Crafts U Love.

I like this one as I have two great stamps from Nellie Snellen, it gives me chance to use them, and I have done just that....Used them both!
I decided to make a couple of Big Tags using the Cowboy and the Indian. (Did you ever play this game when you were younger?) I was always an Indian on foot being chased by Cowboys on bikes....How's that fair!! Gosh that was a long time ago now, still remember it tho'.

I started with Craftwork Cards Tags and used some leftover papers from my box to cover them. I have stamped the set of Grunge Stampin' Up stamps on top of the papers and finished with the images which I coloured with Pro-Markers and some red twine.

Challenge Time and it's a beauty~

Hi All~

Wow it's challenge time again at Sweet Stampin', so without further ado (don't you just love daft sayings like this!)
Here is this weeks card.
The Theme is actually a "Photo Inspiration" from Team Mate Judy's holidays, just look how sweet it is.
You can interpret this photo as you wish but please remember we are a Stamping Challenge, so some Stamping required please!
Our sponsors this week are close to my heart (love 'em) "Hobby House".
I use the products Jill from Hobby House brings us all the time, and their website with gorgeous goodies can be found here:

I have a little white paper Gift Bag for this weeks challenge. (I thought I would use this as there is a little bag hanging from the handlebars of the bike!)
I enjoy making these and they always sell well at my Craft Fairs (talking of which, I had one a couple of weeks ago and did really well)

I have started with a white bag from Samuel Taylors shop at Skipton (Ooo one of my favourite shop, it's a fab place for Crafting, beads, material and wool all under one roof, a link to their website is here:)
I then used a sheet of Dotty Heidi Grace paper, and a panel from a Pad of Heartfelt Creation's Paper, this pad is gorgeous.
I have Stamped and Embossed a Sentiment by Paper Smooches. The wee Owl Stamp was free on a Magazine a few weeks ago. Ribbon is from my stash, flowers were stamped and coloured with Pro-Markers (these were free on the Stamp set too). The Doily is from the Range.
The border is one of my Martha Stewart punches.

Sorry about the hideous photo!

Summer School 2014~

Hello Girls.

Don't even ask where I have been.....This working lark is a nightmare!!
It might have only been a full weeks work, but it might has well have been a years!!
I much prefer working from home.....Eh! Durr... No brainer.

Anyway's I am back in Blog Land, unfortunately I also now in Facebook land (not liking it much tho', just don't get it! What's with all the complete and utter rubbish shared!!!  Help someone, please say it will get better.

I am busy making several of my big Kasercrafts Advent Calenders, so they taking up quite a lot of time. I have not really had any time for anything else since my week at Summer School.
I can show you a couple of photo's of what the children made, and then get back to you later with photo's of my Crafting.

Hello Birdie!!

Hello Ladies~

It's another Saturday (boy they come round quick don't they?)
Well that means Challenge time over at Sweet Stampin', and this weeks theme is "Take Flight", so that's anything that flies!! Remember we are a Stampin' Challenge, so a bit of stamping somewhere on your project please!
Our sponsors this week are Crafty Ribbons.

So my Project this week is a "Little Easel"....I love making these, they are so cute and measure about 6x4 on the little matt part.
You can use them Landscape or Portrait, and they come all flat packed, so they need a little preparing, but they are easy peasy. You can find them here at Pinflair.

I covered the Easel part with pretty torn papers and distressed the edges with inks. I used the Tim Holtz Bird Cage Die (which I love) then I added Flowers from my stash, a K&co plastic button and some pearls to finish. I have stamped the little LOTV Tag under the flowers with Momento Coco Ink.

Oooooo I love a Win!

Hi Girls...
Is it HOT enough for you!!
Wow never felt it like this before, it's soooooo hot, amazing. Cannot remember eating outside this much, we love it.
We have just had a fab BBQ, so off to the Gym now to work it all off!!

I will be back tomorrow with a card to show you, but thought you would like to see what I won with the Craft Stamper Magazine. OMG isn't it fantastic. The whole Graphic 45 "Men's" papers, stamps and Embellishments.
I have already contacted the Editor to say a big thank you. Always worth sending a Postcard into the Magazine, you never know what you might win for the price of a Stamp!!
