Design Team News

Hi everyone. I have some great news. After a long spell of getting my home in good order and after a bout of family illness, I have re-joined the design team at Kraftyhands.

Mike and Ian asked me if I would come back at some point and after seeing them at Ally Pally last weekend, I said I would be happy to come back.
So we are starting with a new CD Called What a Hoot! This is available to pre-order on the website
at Kraftyhands.
I think it will take a bit of time for me to get into the routine of blogging, commenting on peoples cards in the challenge blog and generally getting up to scratch with my card making. I have been playing with the CD on the Kraftyhands first ever Craft Magazine. Once Ive taken some pictures I will be posting them here.

anyway thats enough chatter. Hope to see you here again soon.

Mini cards and Box



I have made a few little cards this week using, for the Floral cards, Clearly Besotted Mini stamp set and dies. The LOVE is a mini die also from Clearly Besotted.
To gauge the size of the stamp set, these cards are 4x4 from Craftworkcards.
The little funny cards are made using a secondhand stamp set, which wasn't packaged, so I don't have a clue who makes them.
I have used the Stampin Up Pansy Punch, to make the pansies for the box.
My SU envelope punch board was used to make the little envelopes.

I have recently found a little company in USA that make these matting dies with the little stitching slots on them. they are hoping to supply us UK crafters with their range of stamps and dies. So watch this space. Lil Inker Designs.
Not much crafting happening here at the moment. Loads of books to read and a lovely warm sunny garden to sit in. Still, once it rains again, I will be in my craft corner.
Thank you for looking today.

A request from my daughter

Mum can you decorate 2 jars for me, for the Schools Summer Fete. Here are the jars.
So I got out my vinyl and my cameo and spent half an hour cutting and applying. A very Retro look about them.

Im really pleased and so is Shelley.

The HERE COMES SUMMER is just a normal font on my computer, which I moved together and welded., So it peeled off in a word rather than a letter,. Making life much easier.
Then I bought a couple of Studio files of flowers, from Cameo. Cut them out and put them on the jar. then I punched white vinyl circles with my punches for the flower centres.

The jars are for fund raising. You put a £1 in one jar and your name on a piece of paper in the other jar. At the end of the fete, one name is pulled out of the jar and that person gets half of whatever is in the other jar. the school keep the other half.
thanks for looking today.

Cameo Typewriters

Todays cards are a batch make for my card stand. I used a Studio download from the Cameo shop. It was pretty fiddly to glue the black frame to the white background but I got there in the end. The papers used are from stampin Up.

Im busy on the next batch make.

thanks for looking.
