Christmas with Colourcraft Workshop

Hi Everyone!

Hello and welcome… can you believe it has been almost a month since my last blog post!..

I wanted to share the lovely creations from the Christmas with Colourcraft workshop held yesterday at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh…

We had a fun day learning all about Colourcraft products and the fun things we can do with them… this is the sample I made for the workshop


We worked with the Aztec Lustre and metallic paints, Acrylic Sprays Mists and Shimmer Mists, Tyvek, Lutradur 70, Soft Form Relief Paste, Expandit and Brusho Crystal Colours..

Once we had finished having a good old experiment and play with the products we gathered everything that we had made throughout the day and brought it all together to make a christmas hanging collage…

I absolutely love how every single one is different and such great pieces made by everyone.. well done ladies your work is wonderful πŸ™‚

Envelope Photo Wallet

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday’s workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh was fun and a good time was had by all making their Photo Wallets.

I made one along with all the lovely ladies who came to the workshop.. it was a lovely surprise to see Helen again, my crafty friend from Kelso. Β  Β I met Helen when I used to demo crafty stuff at the garden centre down there and she now comes all the way up to Edinburgh to Stampers Grove workshops πŸ™‚

Our photo wallets were constructed from envelopes and we used a variety of mediums, including Brusho Crystal ColoursΒ  to achieve our finished projects

Des-Res Bird Box

Hi everyone!

I have a fab little wooden bird box project to share with you tonight πŸ˜€

Remember last night I mentioned that I will be doing an all day workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh well.. it is a full day Imagination Crafts workshop, using all the lovely products they have launched recently.. it’s going to be a great if you fancy joining me click here and it will take you to the Workshop List at Stampers Grove and it provides you will all the information you need.

So back to the des-res bird box, I bought this wee wooden bird house on Saturday after the flip book workshop.. with a view to painting it.. and that’s what I did tonight..


Take two colours of Starlights Paints.. I used Mint and Rich Gold


I was going to make a tiled roof from circles of painted cardstock, but my circle punch was too big for the tiny wee roof and it looked I cracked open the Stampendous Shaved Ice and sprinkled it all over the gold painted roof.. it looks really nice as the ice takeson a different colour.


I also switched out the hanging cord, I thought the one that came with it looked too thick to be on such a small box.


I would quite like to paint a full size bird box in these colours and mount it on the side of my wee craft shed, I think it would be a nice addition πŸ™‚


Well that’s me for another night, I am off for an early night, as the pup had me up 3 times last night!


See you tomorrow, and thanks for popping round
