Happy 1st of February to you all…
Remember a few blog posts ago I mentioned I was heading to Cardwell Garden Centre in Gourock to do a demonstration for indigoblu… Well I thought that I would share my day there with you and also make this a regular feature here on the blog.
A huge thank you to Mairi and Faye for looking after me it was a lovely day and great to see so many like minded crafty ladies and youngsters.
First of all I would like to thank Elizabeth for driving over to see me at the demo… Elizabeth and I have been online crafty friends for well over four years but had never met! well we finally got to meet and give each other a big hug yesterday .. You can find Elizabeth and all her gorgeous crafty goodies over here on her blog:
and here we are
It was a great day and it is a great shop and if you are ever through that way pop in and visit the craft shop and say hi to Mairi and Faye 🙂
here are couple of the cards I made yesterday using the new indigoblu release stamps.
And finally a wee photo of me making something and chatting to the ladies (photo credit to Mairi for this one).
Well that’s me for now, I hope you enjoyed a wee insight into my demo day yesterday..
As always thank you so much for popping round and I will see you all soon with more crafty stuff 🙂

Hope you are all well .. can you believe December is here already!
I have a few Christmas sparkles to share with you today, and to say that I won’t be around on my blog much between now and the new year, I have a lot of stuff happening.
My husband broke his leg in two places the other week, and will be off his work for the next 6 weeks, which means, my workload has increased… Hospital appointment with the consultant to see if they are going to operate/pin/plate the bones to stabilize tomorrow.
I was at the dentist on Monday… I’m on antibiotics for a week as I have an infection in my jaw from a broken crown (just my luck!) and I go to the dentist on Monday to have the root removed (not looking forward to it one bit!)
I will be busy between now and the end of December preparing samples for Indigoblu for their CHA releases, which unfortunately I can’t share. However there will be a blog post from me every Tuesday over on the Indigoblu Blog and another card share on the challenge blog around the 19th December.
My Indigoblu Demonstrations have now finished for the year and I have one final workshop to do this Saturday over in Edinburgh for Stampers Grove, there are still a few spaces left if you fancy joining me making Christmas shaker cards, money wallets, gift card holders and Christmas tags!
Phew!.. and did I mention in amongst all the December mayhem, I still have to make my own Christmas cards for friends and family and do all of my Christmas gift shopping eek!
Now onto my sparklies…
A christmas pillow box
The Bird, The Box and The Bauble

Hello there everyone..
It is Tuesday and that means it is my turn over on the Indigoblu DT Blog. My project this week is a heart shaped keepsake box..
I used a paper mache heart shaped box with lid, and applied a couple of layers of White Gee-soo Good Gesso, and gave all the edges a touch of distress ink…
Along the bottom edge of the box I ran some 1/8″ double sided tape then gave it a little dusting with Eton Mess Megaflake.. the gorgeous crochet lace trim around the top is available from the Indigoblu Shop, I picked up a some when I visited HQ in August, it was wrapped around a lovely wooden cotton reel.
I decorated the top with a felt snowflake, then layered a couple of paper flower blooms together, these were spritzed with Vodka Martini Acrylic paint made up into a little spray bottle, the edges of the flower petals were dabbed with flitterglu and sprinkled with some vintage mica flakes.
The wooden cotton reel base was covered with flitterglu applied directly with the phat foam, and smothered with Eton Mess Megaflake, the above picture is a side view of the trinket box
This is the back of the box, or the top of the heart 🙂 I love how the megaflake shines in contrast with the matte finish of the white gee-soo good Gesso
Supplies used :-
White Gee=Soo Good Gesso
Flitterglu Starter Kit
Eton Mess Megaflake
Vodka Martini Metallic Paint
Pinflair Gel Glue
And the front view… these little trinket boxes would made gorgeous gifts for your guests around the dinner table filled with yummy mints in shiny wrappers 🙂
I hope you liked this week’s project for Indigoblu and I will see you all soon with more crafty goodness
As always, thanks for popping round
