Hello everyone and thank you for popping in!
Well, where does the crafty time go?! Who’d have thought that I’d be up to 100 blog posts already! As a thank you for those who stop in to read my ramblings and see what I’ve been making, I thought a bit of a giveaway would be just the ticket, so keep reading and see what’s up for grabs!
But first I’d like to share a few makes I’ve made recently. While tidying up recently, I found these First Edition Pads I forgot I had!
I bought the ‘Bird Song’ pad ages ago and it’s feminine, glittery accent is just so pretty. I’ve made a large 8×8″ card, popped the large scalloped circles over the top and inked it quite heavily.
In contrast to the large ‘full-fat’ card, I made this long slim card using First Edition’s ‘Desert Blooms’.
Beautiful coloured papers and colours I tend to shy away from (browns and oranges) but a fabulous pad that I look forward to using again soon.
The feather dies are from docrafts and sit nicely on the bottom wrapped in pink twine. All I need now is an envelope to send it in… as I didn’t think of that when I made it long and lean!
This tag was made for Trimcraft’s April challenge. April was a tag challenge but find their May ‘layout’ challenge here.
Lots of texture on this tag, spritzing inks, distressing inks, heat embossing, stencilling… you name it, it’s on there! The floral embellishments are also First Edition papers (Paper Flowers) that I recently won from Trimcraft.
I didn’t win the challenge (my crafty friend Sarah won with a gorgeous Santoro Mirabelle tag) but I had fun making a huge inky mess!
My last make (thank you for still being here!) is an American Craft make using their ‘Print Shop’ papers that I found for the bargain price of £2.99 recently in TK Maxx. My good crafty friend, Clare, recently treated herself to a Minc Foiler and I spent a few hours playing with it. A fabulous bit of kit and definitely on my wish list now! The kilner jar is foiled using a beautiful mint green colour and I’ve simply cut out the middle and used vellum in its place.
It’s a bit different to my usual makes and I think that’s why it’s my favourite make of late.
Anyway… onto the giveaway!! So, here is what I’m giving away:
A lovely prize (even if I do say so myself!)
