ATC Holder
November 22, 2007

Little ATC & Holder I made roughly (very much so) from the template supplied by Stampington in their Post Script email, a project by Audrey Hernandez. I’m terrible at working from templates, just give me step by step instructions for dummies and I’m ok. So this is my version of the holder……..




and actually, when I’ve just gone to get the link to this project (HERE) there are step by step instructions on there…….lol maybe I should read as well as look at the nice pictures…lol

Fluffy Fatbottom’s Twisted Tuesday
November 22, 2007



 This is my first entry for Fluffy Fatbottom’s Twisted Tuesday challenge, I don’t usually have the time to do a lot, but since I’m taking it easy crafting seems to be all I am doing. As soon as I seen the theme this week, “Button Wisdom” it reminded me of this saying, my Mum used it a lot…..

“Do I look like I’m buttoned up the back?”

I can hear her saying it now….lollol

So that’s where my 6×4 came from!

Theme Thursday
November 22, 2007



The theme over on Theme Thursday is “Chalks” so I’ve used chalks for the background on this 4×4 hanging. This is for a swap with Mandy as well, so I hope she likes it. :))

Chalks are All Night Media in Autumn, image Crafty Individuals and Basic grey rub on. Background stamp is by Hero Arts.

Saturday Stampers

This is my contribution to Saturday Stampers, where the theme is Tone on Tone, use one colour and stick to it.


Stuff and Nonsense……lol
November 21, 2007

This is what I’ve made while I’m taking it easy (been poorly) and this box is for a forum friend, and it was inspired by Joanne’s publication in Stampers Sampler recently. Joanne’s always been a big inspiration to me anyway, but I loved her little box she’d made. So this is my version, complete with shrink plastic burdy lol

I got this little box for 99p in a kids toy shop lol.




you can click on the pics for more detail. 🙂

This is a callender I’ve made for a friend.


Wednesday Stamper- Diamonds
November 21, 2007

are a girl’s best friend…….lol been singing that all morning. T’is the theme over on Wednesday Stamper, and this is my contribution……a box I’ve made for a forum friend. This used to have Tesco finest Belgian chocolates in it, but I’m sure my friend wouldn’t have wanted those….hehe….what I do for my craft….lol

I’ve used papers by K&Co, stamps by Crafty Individuals and Judikins, flowers are all Prima, and the diamonds are in the centre of the flowers. The French text pages were a gift from my friend Joanne, distressed to within an inch of seeing them at all….lol click on the pics for more detail. 🙂




Some New Stuff
November 14, 2007

Haven’t blogged for a bit, due to illness, being busy, life, bla bla. Usual….

So here is my Wednesday Stamper contribution for last week, that I made ON Wednesday, but was too ill to really be on the computer and I never did get round to submitting it. The theme was leaves…..


This is for a Christmas themed tag swap hosted by Gillian, and the shape came from my new rub ons, the Christmas tree, and they came from a brill new site called 3D Jeans, you should definately go, there’s new stock in every time I go on, I also got the glimmer mists on this tag from there, I love them and I’m glad I did get them.


This is a Circle book I made for Gillian, and the instructions and template for this were provided by the wonderfully talented and inspirational Carrie. I loved doing this, as it was something different and Gillian seems to like it too.




Saturday Stampers- Collage
November 3, 2007

This is my entry for this week’s Saturday Stampers, where the theme is collage. It is also the first chance I’ve had to use my new Ranger Crackle Paints, and they are fab! I did take a close up pic of the effect, but after 5 attempts at uploading it, Blogger has won and I give up….tsk….. if you click on this pic you will get more detail, I used Fired Brick paint and picked the crackles out using a gold metallic dauber.
