I have moved back into my shed today YAY!..
I had problems with moisture in one of the sockets, so I had to wait for a couple of dry days to dry my shed out and today the sockets finally worked without tripping the house lol..
So the heaters have been on all day full blast… so while I was up there I had a good old tidy up and sort out, and it feels good to have a clean work space again..
Today’s wee project is tiny milk cartons that hold tiny chocolate easter eggs.. these are cute, and they are also for an upcoming workshop at Stampers Grove, on April 1st, I’ll leave the details at the bottom of this post if you fancy joining us..
I also made some from my jelly print papers too
There will be a couple more projects to make at the workshop, and I am working on these at the moment 😉
If you are in Edinburgh Saturday 1st April, and fancy some easter treat holders, you can call James or Emma to book a space on 0131 221 9440 or pop into 92 Grove St, Edinburgh EH3 8AF.
As always, thanks for popping in
I have a mini album to share with you today, i made this for an upcoming workshop at Stampers Grove which takes place next Saturday 25th February..
So if you fancy joining us for a few hours, I will leave the booking details at the bottom of this post.
I have literally just finished making this and I have not had a chance to decorate the front cover yet.. it is hot off the press 😉
I think i am going to start making another one tomorrow.. they are time consuming but very rewarding and lot of fun if you like methodical crafting
It has a magnetic strip closure, and it works really well considering the volume of content in the mini book
I love this old paper line called Sycamore Street from stampin up…
Would I have done anything different when creating this… yes, I think I will ink the edges next time 😉
If you would like to come along and make one you can call James or Emma to book a space on 0131 221 9440 or pop into 92 Grove St, Edinburgh EH3 8AF
As always, thank for popping round.. see you again soon
This weekend I have been making mostly …. Envelope Books 🙂
They are samples for a workshop at Stampers Grove this Saturday 11th February from 10.30 till 12.30..
This is a great way to use up your envelops stash and as you can see they look great in all shapes and sizes 🙂
Its also a great way for you to use up your jelly plate prints
and also use up all those patterned papers we hoard 😉
and practice zentangle (which I suck at lol)
So if you are in Edinburgh next Saturday and fancy making one, you can call James or Emma to book a space on 0131 221 9440 or pop into 92 Grove St, Edinburgh EH3 8AF
As always, thank you for popping round
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..
As always, thanks for popping round, and I will be back in the next couple of days with book number three
p.s. if you have any special requests for a theme or colour way leave me a message in the comments below and I will see what i can do 😉

Happy Sunday everyone!
This is blog post 2 of 3 .. I’m going for a hat trick today 😉
I have been playing around all morning with the different/new techniques I learned yesterday when I attended the Card Making Workshop at Stampers Grove Thanks to Yvonne for teaching and James & Emma for hosting the workshop in their craft store
The first card I made is using a new butterfly trio stamp set that I bought whilst I was at the class, it stamps beautifully!
and here is the card I created, using the new folding and cutting out technique from the workshop
and here is a different view so you can see it from a different angle..
I made the next card yesterday in class, and today I finished it off by applying holographic embossing powder and some colour to the body, this is another gorgeous stamp.. you can find it here
the technique here is you stamp the image direct to the card base, then cut around the wings with a craft knife to give your card added dimension… cant wait to try this again, I will need to have a nose in my stamp vault to see if what stamps would lend themselves for this type of card 🙂
I also made another one of these cards using a stampin up heart stamp
Then I had a go at a pop out card, this is supposed to be a stack of presents, you could also do a stacked cake..
I had so much fun learning things yesterday, now to put them all into practice!
I’ll be back later tonight with Shabby Sunday
