I have become punch happy, although I still have not got the hang of Martha's around the page punches, more practice and waste paper!!! Anyway played with some of the punches I have and came up with the undernoted, simple but effective, will start to play with my UTEE melting pot and friendly plastic and see what I come up with. Used crystal effects for the centres.
I like this retirement, played most of tonight. Decided to make holders for the first meander mini to keep it closed/safe. So I made two, now all I have to do is pick the right one hmmmmmmm, maybe another meander is required lol.
this one is a recycled box that held a Martha Stewart Punch.
Scrapadabadoo as always comes up trumps. The USA gals are awesome. I got me a Quickstik [the quicker-poker-picker-upper try saying that a few times!!] and it is fab. I always got annoyed when I had difficult with the teensie tiny pieces needing glue but this is fabuloso. Laura you did it again lol.
Had a lovely afternoon chatting and having afternoon tea with some ladies. I think I am going to enjoy this retirement stuff - so much to do. I have learned there are no mistakes just creative opportunities waiting to happen!!!!!
simple cards made from gift tags at end of festive period sales.
I just looooove easel cards
What do you do with the inside of the bathroom paper roll - well you can make them into cards, albums
and make a tag or two to insert inside them or put several together.
Step cards are so easy to make
Love playing with ribbon, shred ribbon and make flowers (Italian tearning ribbon is the best)
Shutter card - have finally got the hang of this one lol!
Take a feather and make a tree
This tree did try my patience, it is made from maple leaf punchouts.
Any material in the house you dont know what to do with - well wrap it round a piece of card (I used artist's chipboard) and emboss your background with a versamarked stamp on gold card and use clear embossing powder. Oh and of course glitter.
Well the Hogmanay hootenany has well and truely come and gone.
Did you make any New Year resolutions, I have decided not to this year, I always seem to end up breaking them lol. I have now taken early retirement and hopefully wil be able to create some lovely goodies. First I need to raid the back room and clear it to make a craft space!! Not to mention redoing the whole flat up.
TTFN for now
Hmmm housework my motto is if you see the dust admire it dont write on it!!!!!
Playing with paper glue and glitter is much more fun.
Love doing craft things, anything with paper/card- construction, mini albums; lace, shabby chic, beads/pearls, stickpins, gilders paste, altered art, and also love needlework - embroidery, goldwork, tapestry; kumihimo braiding, quilting
