Do what you love and love what you do.

Hi Everyone,

Tonight I made a start with book number two, I was late getting up to my shed, after 9pm but i managed to get the book finished 🙂

I used Diamond Starlight paint on tonight’s book along with tissue tape, fibres, and a wooden heart, if you missed last night’s blog post you can catch up here as these wee books are for a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh.

I love how shimmery these starlight paints are!

I love the mixed fibres and think they look nice against the shimmery background of the book cover..

50th Guest Book

Hi everyone!

A happy soggy wet Sunday to you all 🙂

The rain here has not stopped all day, or yesterday for that matter, and last night I had problems with the electrics in my wee shed.. moisture in a socket i think,  so glad hubby is an electrician, so fired him up there today to fix it lol 🙂 and all is well again, thankfully!

I have a book to share with you today, I was working on this last week and it is finished now, well the ice resin has cured and dried 🙂

It’s a guest book for my friend who is 50 next month, she is having a party, and I thought it would be nice to make a week book for her to pass around at her party so everyone can sign and leave a nice wee message for her

I did a double layer with the ice resin so that it gave the effect of floating stars.. hopefully the next picture shows this off a wee bitty.

50 d

I used the bind it all for the book’s binding, using black 3/4″ O Wires.

50 c

I also added some nice sparkly sequins to the inside of the book along with a few photo’s and sealed it all in with my fuse tool.

I hope you enjoyed the project this week.. I will be back next week with a regular stream, either Ustream or Youtube, but will notify via social media to let you all know

Clean & Simple… Merry & Bright

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday to you all!

The weather here today is absolutely miserable, it is a right old Winnie the Pooh day… blustery & wet

I have another Christmas card to share today, it is clean and simple and easy to mass produce, it’s mainly die cutting and assembling.

I used the following materials and tools to complete this card :-

  • Thick White cardstock card size is 5″x 5″
  • cuttlebug
  • Dienamics Star Stax Dies
  • Lil inker Designs Stitched Square Frames Die Set
  • Glitter Cardstock
  • and the Merry & Bright sentiment stamp from the Clearly Besotted Set the Scene stamp set
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink
  • Double sided Dimensional adhesive tape plus a little bit of matte medium to help the tape stick to the glittered cardstock.

Boxed Card Set

I was up in my wee shed today preparing samples for a workshop that I am doing with Stampers Grove on Saturday 5th December 2015..

In the workshop we will be making a box set of cards, so that will be 4 cards, 4 envelopes and a cute little box to put them in, great little gifts ideas for friends and family

This little sample is a clean and simple version using a cute little scotty dog stamp made by Crafty Stamps, this is Stampers Grove’s own make of stamps 🙂

CardBoxSet

We will be using the envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers to make the envelopes and box

cardboxset1

There is a cute little belly band that keeps it all together..

cardboxset2

The box holds 4 cards and 4 envelopes comfortably

cardboxset3

They make such a great gift too.. I put several different sentiments on the inside for different occasions..

If you fancy joining me to make these, here is the link to Stampers Grove Website, where you can find the workshop schedule, workshop times, prices and also contact information.

As always, thanks for popping round
