Chocolate Box Toadstool

Chocolate Box Toadstool.

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday to you all, hope you have had a lovely crafty weekend!

Yesterday I drove all the way up to Turriff in Aberdeenshire to a fabulous wee craft shop called Madhatters, where I did a Demonstration for Indigoblu.   It was worth the 6 hours driving and 320 odd miles round trip!

madhatters

Wendy the shop owner was brilliant and kept all the ladies going with cups of tea, then we had a lovely wee buffet lunch (I even got a wee doggy bag to take with me for my drive home)!    So a special thank you to Wendy for your hospitality and fabulous wee craft shop.

I bought a couple of these toadstools, they have the best selection of decopatch shapes, boxes & things I have ever seen and just had to bring these home with me… so guess what today’s project was 😉

I used the following Indigoblu Products to transform this wee cutie!

  • Indigoblu Flitterglu, Phat Foam & Scoochie.
  • Indigoblu Chocolate Box Megaflake
  • Indigoblu Snow White Metallic Cottage Acrylic Paint
  • Indigoblu “Enjoy Life” Stamp Set .. using the “With Love” Stamp
  • Stazon Ganache Ink
  • Stitched Tag Die

Here is the wee toadstool transformed into something rather special, I love this and will be making another one very soon which will travel with me to Indigoblu Demonstrations around Scotland.

Indigoblu Cardwell Demonstration Day

Hi everyone!

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:

Wee Christmas Birdies

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great weekend, Just a quickie post from me today with a quick share on what I got up to yesterday whilst I was through at the Cardwell Garden Centre in Gourock demonstrating for Indigoblu!

Check out these cute little glass birdie tree decorations,  I applied a layer of flitterglu direct to the glass, waited for the glu to go clear/translucent then smothered them in gorgeous Megaflake.. I LOVE them so much, and so did the customers, because they sold out completely 🙂   a huge thank you to Mairi and Faye who gave me these little beauties to play with.

Needless to say I will now be scouring the internet to try and find these so that I can decorate and put some on my tree 🙂

p.s. the birds are (L) Chocolate Box (R) Royal Peacock

Glass Birds

I have been crafting like a mad woman today… you catch up with what I have been making over on the Indigoblu Blog this Tuesday 18th November.

I also have a step by step tutorial this week on the Indigoblu blog, which will be a video, so you won’t want to miss that one… I have had a lot of requests for this 😉

Oki doki.. I’m off, what was initially going to be a quickie post turned into a bit of a rambling lol…

As always thank you so much for your support

See you next week!
