26th September 2007

Wow have been busy again today, have had the pleasure of spending £84.00 on scrapbooking paper, unfortunatly not for me. For the weekly class I teach for a local regeneration scheme. Love the DCWV Metallic stack next on my list to add to my ever increasing stash.Finished some projects that needed finishing . Planned Fridays class, just need to make up the layout tommorow.

Been trawling the web to see whats going to be coming over here sooner or later can't wait till we can get The DCWV All dressed up and Rockstar collections they are lush, also like the Chip Chatter Chipboard Foil Alphas. DCWV Web Site for lots more lush items

Also definatly on my list of must haves as well is the Maya Road Birdie Chipboard Book in the shape of a bird. SO want that NOW

Have been considering what to have for my £10.00 Blog candy giveaway. Don't forget anyone who comments on my blog posts between 24th September and 24th October will get one entry into the blog candy draw for every comment. The more comments the more entries. I think I may have decided I will let you know next Monday , what you will win if you are drawn.

Best news today its a BOY. I'm going to have a grandson in February. Looking forward to being a nan should be much more fun than being a Mum all the best bits and a lot less responsibility LOL

I have also created a free overlay download for you inspired by a friends child who has measles.

Here it is hope its useful for some of you, who being true scrappers have photographed your poorly spotty children because they will match your favorite spotty embellishments and papers LOL

For every comment you make on my blog you will get a ticket in a draw to recieve £10.00 worth of crafting stash. So on the 25th October I will put all the tickets in a hat and pull one out and the winner will recieve my special choice of goodies. So the more comments the more chance you have Good Luck. I will be taking comments from Yesterdays post into account so feel free to comment on that . Till tommorow

Papercraft Junkies Challenge

Sorry my Papercraft Junkies challenge post is late, I have a really good reason, my sister and I had to make a 20 page album in 30 hours for one of my Sisters friends, for her to have in time for her mums funeral. It was finished late last night so I hav nt had time to post.
So here is a slide of the album

It was my turn to pick the Papercraft Junkies Challenge this week. So I thought dimension would be a great challenge for scrappers cardmakers and altered artists. Here are my examples

the clootie well You walk 3 times around the well then tie a peice of cloth to a tree (from someone with an ilness) as the fabric rots it takes the illness with it. The clootie well is a really strange place as its really chaotic to look at all those multi coloured bits of feabric hanging everywhere, and yet there is a feeling of serenity So strange

This is a three layer teabag card done with basket weave fold medallions. I think it looks like a daffodil

I took a large three layer flower sticker by Paper adventures
dismanteled it and used on layer as a template to cut an aperture then stuck the sticker inside the card so that one layer was hidden inside, but when you open card you can see the whole flower.

Pop out card, done with Emboss and pricking medallion stencil . To see all the examples by Papercraft Junkies Design team click Here. Don't forget if you enter the challenge you can win a 15% discount for have also a free paper download designed with dimension in mind

Sunday 23rd September

As you can see from my last post I have been working on Christmas projects recently. Wow where do's the year go. One minute your celebrating New year, next minute its almost Christmas again.

I was wondering if anybody would be interested in Craft Robo Cutting files as free downloads every now and again, if you are interested please leave a comment , if there is enough interest I will try and design a new Robo download once a fortnight ( with the occasional extra one thrown in when I have time)
Anyway today I have for free download a Christmas Overlay

Please feel free to use it in any personal projects if you use it for any crafted project you are payed for please give me credit. Not to be sold as an overlay or paper unless by agreement.
