I am still here.....just sooooo busy!!

Hello Ladies

No excuses for not being around, just time is catching up on me, never seem to have time lately for anything. Mind you the Rugby World Cup is on now, so I can be found watching that at the mo!

Anyway. I have been doing loads of crafting as always, but just not had time to blog any of it! Such a shame as at one time I blogged almost every day! Sure I will get more time soon, and I do love blogland, so will always be here and look at what all you talented ladies are up too.

I have managed to take a couple of photo's of the "C" Wallets I have made to sell at my coming fairs.
I am actually selling on Sunday this week, but it's probably a tad early to bring out the "C" stuff....or is it??

Both these wallets are made using an A4 sheet of white card, I fold them in half and chop about 2" off the edge so they fit in an A5 envelope. I fold up about 2" on the bottom inside the wallet to create a pocket, I cut this to form two pockets, and round the edges for the money/voucher to go. The other side I leave blank and usually stamp a "C" saying and this is where the name goes (should have taken a photo of inside but forgot!!)
I then wrap a ribbon round and leave enough to tie, cover in papers and add embellishments. Both these toppers are Hobby House, and the sentiments are a lovely set by LOTV.
In all I have made 10 of these (but usually make around 40 in all) they are great for giving someone a voucher or money. Make them using a Birthday Image too.

Thanks for looking ladies and thank you for all the lovely comment. X

Embossing Time!

Hi Ladies
Sorry I have not been around much, I wish there were more hours in the day.
Mind you sorting all my Daughter's Wedding Stationary is taking up such a lot of my time, I have to squash everything else in! (It's a year off yet!)

So Saturday again is Challenge Time at "Sweet Stampin".
This week it's the brilliant "Emboss it"! Who doesn't like a bit of Embossing? I do...
Please remember ladies that we are a "Stamping" challenge, so a spot of stamping somewhere on your project is a must in order to be entered for the prize!
Our Sponsors this week are "Flat Friends"...

I have chosen to make a "C" Card to add to my Slow growing stash!!
This die and Stamp are freebies on the cover of this months Papercraft essentials magazine.
The Snowflake folder on the inside is by Cuttlebug and is so crisp and lovely, I know it is not easy to see, so sorry about that. Paper circle is Graphic 45.
Get yourself in with a chance of winning over at Sweet Stampin'. X

Let's get Musical!

Hi There

Let's get Musical....that's the theme this week at "Sweet Stampin'".
(don't forget we are a stamping challenge, so some stamping somewhere please guys!)
So...You could do, Musical instruments, papers, singing anything "Musical"...

So onto what I did. I made one of my large MDF boxes and added a ribbon of musical note paper. Hope you like it.

Now then what I have used....This could take sometime!!
The Sentiment is by Sam Poole, little bird is an mdf shape, and I have coloured it black. There's a Spellbinders cartouche and a Heartfelt Creations swirl die cut. The flowers are stamped onto paper and are from a SU set (just love these and have the punch to use to cut them out too, easy....)
I have finished off with leaves by Memory Box, some enamel dots and the paper covering the box i think is either Prima or Fancy Pants.
