Hallo Everyone!

How's it going?........
You know, if often wondered
what is being referred to.....
Well, whatever, everything is
good in my little corner of
the crafty world and I hope it
is the same in yours

Helen Chilton has a tag for us
today using just one set of 
stamps.  Take a look:



Lots of zingy colours on this tag.


Scrape on some Zesty Zing with a 
plastic card and let dry.


Add patches of white especially where 
you're going to stamp the face.


Stamp main image in black and then add
 parts of the image to create a diagonal design.


Fill in with stencilling with Distress Oxides



Layer onto black card and add embellishments."


Thanks Helen, so bright and
cheerful on this grey January day!


Of course, it doesn't have to be
this particular set of stamps - it
could be any, or even a selection
of individual stamps  

If you are into mindfulness then
this is certainly one for you.....

'Till tomorrow

PS Don't forget the SALE lots of
half price goodies to be had.

Hi Everyone!

Gosh!  Have you noticed?
It's halfway through the
month.....already!

Days are getting a little longer
too.  Fantastic!

Claire Jackson has brought in
a lovely summery project for
us to delight in........




First I assembled all of the pieces, glued them 
together and stuck them to a cardboard mat.

 I gave the base a layer of texture paste
 and embedded microbeads on one side 
and flower sequins on the other, before 
giving it all a coat of gesso. 

I then decided it needed a little more
 dimension and added some Kaisercraft
 leaf flourishes.


All that was left to do was paint the 
houses with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish
 chalk paint and add the charms.




I’ve tried out a few of the Art-C kits now 
and they are really good quality and fit 
together very closely. 

This kit is fun if you’re looking for a quick 
project and would be ideal as an afternoon 
activity with children."



Thank you Claire - Love what you
have made here.  I have this
particular set and all I've done so
far is glue all the pieces together
and so two little houses have
been shunted back and forth 
across my desk for a while!  I
shall have no trouble finishing
them off now!


In fact, I might go and see if
any of the Art-C kits have made
it to the SALE along with some
extra embellishments!

'Till tomorrow

Happy Monday Everyone!

Thought I'd ring the changes
and wish everyone a cheery start
to the week................
Angela Radford has been in the
cheer cupboard too and has
brought us a..............dare I say.....
cheery card?  Well it is, the week
may not turn out to be but we do
our best to keep you happy.......




"Hi all. I've been having fun with some
 Kim Dellow stamps.

I decided to use some craft card this time
 with a page from an old paperback book 
which I'd coloured earlier with Oxide inks.


Started by creating the background


 I can never make my mind up so
 stamped and fussy cut lots of pieces
 but they never go to waste!


A little play around with the arrangement.



And it's time to put it all together.


Add some white pen, stickles glitter glue,
 gems and a sentiment and there you have it!

 Quite pleased with that, hope you like it too.

Happy Crafting,  Angela xXx"

Thank you Angela - that is a really
lovely card and so suitable for
many occasions!


This time, it's a stamp set, 
a book page, colouring medium
and a pair of scissors - all of
which are available in the
SALE!  Why not pop over and
have a peek?

'Till tomorrow
