Forgotten Friday 43- Winter Wings

Hi Folks, I hope that you all had a great Christmas, and are looking forward to the New Year ahead. I have had a lovely time with family and friends, in spite of struggling with a trapped nerve in my arm. I had a cortisone injection just before Christmas, which sadly hasn't eased the problem at all. I have had lots of help from my family though, so it hasn't all been bad.

I have had a forced break from crafting due to the sore arm, and my project today has been the first for several weeks. I have chosen to use lots of neglected stamps for this card. I have decided to make two Christmas items a month for my Forgotten Friday projects at least, to keep me prepared for Christmas next year. Sadly, the Bah Humbug blog won't be running for a while, and I want to make cards all year, as I started to this year, by following their blog. So, if you want to be organied like myself, then join me in making Christmas cards twice a month, and use some of your neglected stash along the way.

I have used some never inked Jo Capper-Sandon stamps for this project, although not typically Christmas themed. You would hardly expect to see a dragonfly in the Winter! I have also used her large and small mushrooms, a stamp from the Judikins Botanical cube, and a tree from the Chocolate Baroque 'Aboretum Design a Tree' stamp set. All of these stamps are neglected stamps, so I have been very good this week. I masked everything off, and then coloured the background with Distress Inks. I coloured the images with Polychromos pencils, then added a touch of Stickles to the dragonfly wings.

If you have time this week, why not have a trawl through your stash, and make something with a forgotten item or two? Leave a link to your project in my comments, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look.
Have a very Happy New Year all of you, and thanks for all of your support this year. I look forward to crafting with you in 2012, thanks for stopping by, xx

Forgotten Friday 42- It's been a while

Hi Folks, it's been a couple of weeks since I've done a Forgotten Friday post, and I'm really not expecting any of you to go rushing out to make something to join in this close to Christmas. The makes that I'm going to show you today are coincidental, not specifically for this post either. We are all so busy at this time of year.

Unfortunately, I haven't been that well recently, so crafting has been almost impossible for me, which has been really frustrating in the lead up to Christmas. I am buying a lot of my cards this year, but listening to a lot of other people, I'm not the only one. I hope that you aren't all feeling the pressure of the season too much. Hopefully you will be able to approach the big day ready to wind down, enjoy some time with friends and family, and that you can relax for a while. I know, I'm not ignoring the fact that there is a huge dinner to cook on the day, believe me! However, I have three helpers who do the vegetable peeling and the washing up, so I have learned to delegate!

Anyway, on to my projects this week. I have been making a book card with my card class for the last couple of weeks. It wasn't meant to take so long, but the construction was a little involved, and then the front needed decorating. I then showed them how to make the TH pine cones, so it became quite time consuming. My project was based on a project taken from the Whiff of Joy tutorial blog, there is a great 'how to' video on the blog. I have used a neglected Martha Stewart punch to make paper lace to decorate both the inside and outside of the project, colouring the card with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I then embossed a favourite Chocolate Baroque holly swirl stamp in gold onto my background card, and then added various green Distress Inks. I then stamped an unused LOTV angel stamp onto an oval of card, which I had already coloured slightly with some of the green inks. I coloured the image with Coloursoft pencils. I added some more of the paper lace, and two of the pine cones and foliage from the same die, which I had inked with Pine Needles Distresss Ink.

My second project is a Birthday card that I needed to make for a twenty year old this week. I wanted something quite vibrant to reflect her vivacious personality. I used some Distress Inks patted onto my craft mat, spritzed with water, and dragged my card through the colours repeatedly, building up the layers. I then sprayed a Crafty notions white spray over the top to knock the colour back slightly. I then stamped an IndigoBlu crackle stamp over the top.

I stamped 'Ella Bella' from IndigoBlu onto the background, using Archival black ink. I added some lovely sari ribbon that my crafty friend Lesley had given me, I have been hoarding this for an eternity, and the colours are gorgeous. I then added a silver butterfly that I had coloured with Stream and Wild Plum alcohol inks, again, a neglected craft item. To finish, I added some tiny flat-backed self-adhesive pearls on the image. I have lots of these, but rarely use them.
If you feel like making something with your forgotten stash, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. However, please don't feel guilty if you are too busy this week. Thanks for stopping by, xx

White Christmas Challenge

Just to let you know that Glenda is hosting a White Christmas Challenge over on her blog at the moment. The more people that enter, the bigger the prize fund becomes, with the maximum amount being £50 in Chocolate Baroque vouchers. That could buy a lot of stamps!. The deadline for the challenge is 15th December. Why not go and take a look? The winner is drawn at random, so everyone gets a chance to win.

Forgotten Friday 41- Pockets and Tags

Hi Folks, it's Friday again, and time to rummage through your forgotten stash again. See if you can find something that you have neglected, and make something with it.

Since last week, I've been on my trip to Paris with my Husband, where we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a lovely time, visiting the sights, and taking a much needed break from our normally hectic lives. When we arrived at the hotel, there was a bunch of dark red roses waiting for me, that Terry had organised. I carried the same kind of flowers when we got married. I was very touched that he had been so romantic.

We were staying just off the Champs Elysees, and there was a Christmas Market set up there, which put us in the Christmas spirit straight away. We visited all of the main sights, including the Eiffel Tower. It's beautiful at night, and sparkles on the hour every hour for five minutes.

We spent a few hours one day in the Montmartre district. This was my favourite area. We climbed up the steps to see the Sacre Coeur, and it really does glow pink in the sunset.

We wandered around the cathedral, and I had been hoping, although not expecting, to find a view that matched a particular Darkroom Door stamp that I have. I love this stamp, and have used it on the front of my Paris journal that I am working on to commemorate this trip.

Terry thought I was mad to get so excited when I actually found the street! I guess only a crafter would understand, LOL!

We visited the Moulin Rouge area while we were in Montmartre, bypassing the seedier elements, enough said!
We managed to get a trip to the Louvre, seeing the Mona Lisa. We climbed the Arc de Triomphe, 265 steps, which reminded me that I'm not getting any younger! We also went up the Eiffel Tower, and enjoyed some stunning views. On our last day, we visited Notre Dame, which I was particularly pleased about, as the building is beautiful.

We really enjoyed the trip, and would visit Paris again, as there is a lovely vibe to the place. The weather was very mild too for the time of year, and we quite often didn't even need to wear our coats.

So onto my project for this week. I am working on my journal, and have covered my inner pages now, printed out my photographs, and planned out what is going where with all of my memorabilia. Most of the leg work has been completed, so it is just a matter of sticking, inking, stamping, etc. However, my last journal took a long time to complete! I have concentrated on my front section this week, and created a tag pocket which contains a railway ticket for the Eurostar. I have embossed part of a Tim Holtz embossing folder onto the pocket, and used Distress Inks to pick out the embossing. I have scrunched and inked the train ticket.

On the next page, I have used a photograph to create a pocket for a tag, to which I have added an ideology tag. I am using a mixture of Darkroom Door, Chocolate Baroque, and Cavallini stamps. These are all very much neglected stamps. The Cavallini stamps are another set of stamps in a tin, they are wood mounted, and very lovely to look at. I bought them from an American lady who was selling all of her real stash, as she wanted to go digital in her crafting. They have sat unused in my craft room for ages, and this was the perfect opportunity to use them.

On the small flap, I have stamped a couple of stamps, and added a piece of Stampbord with another DD stamp. I have etched some of the details to highlight them.

I may add something else to this flap, but I'll see what bits and pieces I have left over, or if I want to do any more journalling.

Don't forget to leave a comment attached to this post if you decide to make something yourself with a forgotten item, and I'll pop along to your blog, and take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx

Forgotten Friday- almost didn't make it!

Phew, it's Friday again, although only just. I'm preparing to go away for my Silver Wedding Anniversary trip tomorrow morning, and life is just very hectic. We are off to Paris, and are leaving early in the morning to catch a train up to London, where we are picking up the Eurostar.

It's hard to believe that it is almost twenty five years ago that we got married, the time has just vanished. I don't feel old enough for starters! My children have grown up and sometimes, (if I don't look in the mirror), I don't feel much older than them, LOL! Here's a photo of myself and Terry on our wedding day, and I am the same age as my Daughter is now.

It's not a great photo, as I just snapped the one that is hanging on the wall upstairs. My dress is from the eighties, so it looks a bit stylised these days. I won't even begin to describe my going away outfit!

Anyway, I've cheated with my Forgotten Friday project this week, as time was so tight, and have made a very simple card for my OH as my project. I chose a fabulous paper from My Mind's Eye, that I have been hoarding for ages, with the Eiffel Tower in one corner. As we are going to Paris on our trip, it seemed appropriate. I have used a mask over the top, and sponged Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks over the paper. I then brushed Walnut Stain DI around the edges.

I've used another neglected item over the top- printable acetate, to add the words 'Happy Anniversary'.

It is a very quick card, but my energy levels are still quite low as I'm still getting over this bone infection in my jaw. No news of when my tooth is coming out yet unfortunately.

Anyway, why don't you have a rummage through your forgotten stash, see what you have been neglecting, and try to make something too. If you leave a comment, I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx

Forgotten Friday 39- Just tagging along

Hi folks, it's Friday again, that means it's time to rummage through your stash again to find some neglected items and make something with them.

This week, I've been making tags using a tutorial based on a post I found here using Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. I had an unopened pot of this that had been knocking around for ages, so I thought that it was a perfect Forgotten Friday project. I dug out some neglected Christmas embossing folders, and had a go.

I found that the Tim Holtz folders are much better for this project, as they are deeper etched than Cuttlebug embossing folders, for example. However, I could try using my 'Texture Boutique' embossing machine another time, which is meant to emboss much deeper than a regular die cutting machine. It just gathers dust as I don't normally get it out for embossing these days. Here are a couple of sample tags one TH, and one Cuttlebug:

This is a fun technique to do, and makes a very pretty background. I finished the blue tag off, and will finish the red and green tag another day.

Don't forget to have a look through your own craft stash to see what you have been neglecting. If you make something, leave a comment this week, and I'll pop over to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx

A little bit of WOW!

Recently I have been playing around with some embossing powders from WOW, and I have to say that I am quite impressed with the range and quality of these powders. Several of my samples, if they have had embossing on them have used these particular powders recently. The extra chunky clear powder I have to say is one of the best I have come across for triple embossing, it gives a super smooth finish. I made a few samples up for WOW themselves this week, and if you've been to the NEC, you may have seen them on the stand. I am not showing you them on here, as the stamps weren't on the website last time I checked, so I'm not sure how top secret they are!

Anyway, here is a sample of a card I made for them using some fabulous stamps from IndigoBlu. I've used the copper pearl embossing powder for the large corner stamp, over a background made using Distress reinkers and water. I spritzed my background, drying each layer, until I was happy with the depth of colour. I then sponged the same colours of Distress Inks onto some white card, and stamped a couple of Butterflies with Coffee Archival Ink, before cutting them out. I've used flower stamens for their antennae.

Glenda has just started stocking some of these embossing powders over at Chocolate Baroque and she has some great samples over on her blog, which you can reach by following the link in my side bar. I hope you are all having a great weekend whatever you are up to, thanks for popping by, xx

Forgotten Friday 38- masks are not just for Halloween!

Hi folks, it's Friday again, and time to rummage through your forgotten stash to see what unused items you have laying around. This week, I've been looking through my masks, and have chosen two particularly nice ones, although one is strictly a stencil.

The first one is a holly ring from Creative Expressions, which I've had for ages, and never seem to get around to using. I have lots of their masks, and just forget about them. I did get them out for my card class recently, and they made some fabulous cards with them once I'd given them a quick tutorial. Anyway, I coloured my piece of card using Distress re-inkers and water, I used Bundled Sage, Forest Moss, and Barn Door, drying in between the layers, until I was happy with the colour. I then ran the mask through the Big Shot with the card, to get an embossed impression. I coloured the embossed area with Forest Moss Distress Ink.

I then stamped and embossed a lovely vintage Christmas sentiment, available from Chocolate Baroque in the middle of the holly ring. I have matted the card onto gold and green card, but will probably add some further embellishment before I send this card out at Christmas.

My second card uses a Sweet Poppy stencil from The Craft Station, and I love this beautiful tree. I have another similar tree that I have used before which regular blog followers may remember. I sponged various blue and green inks through the stencil, and also used a stipple brush for the smaller areas. I then spritzed Pearl Glimmer Mist over the top, before removing the stencil, and trimmed away the white frame.

I used a sentiment and digi paper from Chociolate Baroque as before. The digi paper is temporarily unavailable, but keep checking back, as this one is fabulous, and available in lots of different colourways. It's called 'Medieval Script'. Again, I'll probably add some embellishment to this card before I send it out, but I've got a few weeks yet.

I've not been that well this week, unfortunately, I've got an infection in the bone above one of my teeth. It feels like I have flu, and it has completely floored me. I'm now taking lots of antibiotics, so I will hopefully be on the mend soon. My tooth has got to come out, but that's complicated, and has to be done under general anaesthetic, so I have to wait for an appointment. Hopefully by next Friday, I'll be feeling more like myself again.

Don't forget to have a look through your crafty stash to see what items you have been neglecting. If you want to add a link to your blog during the week, I'll pop along and take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, Judith xx

A Place in the Sun

Hi Folks, here's another sample using the fabulous 'Echoes of Italy' stamp plate recently released over at Chocolate Baroque My OH and I dream of finding a little cottage over in Italy for when we retire, buying a little  Fiat cinquecento and whizzing about the countryside, soaking up the lovely views. I had that idea very much in mind when I created this project.

I created the background by using very thin masking tape, and measuring one and a half inch squares across the background. I used several colours of Distress Inks, and punched a square in a piece of paper to create a reverse mask to colour through, so that I didn't contaminate the other squares as I went along. Once I had finished, I stamped over the whole lot with the large crackle stamp, before peeling off the masking tape. That crackle stamp is such a great stamp.

I coloured the image with Distress Inks, and chose a suitable phrase from the 'Artful Affirmations' stamp set, before adding some Crealie flowers and Marianne leaves. I didn't have any brown brads big enough for the centre of the flowers, so I just glued some buttons over the top of the small ones that I used.

I look at this card and think, 'Oh well, I can dream....' If you get a chance, pop over to the Design Team Blog as I have a card featuring over there today too, also using some of the fabulous stamps from this set.

Thanks for popping by today, and enjoy your weekend, xx

Woodland Dreams

Glenda over at Chocolate Baroque has just released some great new stamps this week. I showed you a sample earlier in the week using the 'Echoes of Italy' stamp plate, and today, I thought that I'd show you one using the 'Woodland Dreams' stamp plate.

I have already posted this sample on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog:

I used a selection of burgundy, brown and dark green inks, all embossed with clear embossing for my stamping.

For my sample today, I wanted to use a different colour palette, but the same stamps, to show the versatility of these stamps. I used a clear embossing powder on the Kraft card to act as a resist, and then covered the card with various Distress Inks. I embossed the tree and sentiment with copper embossing powder. I made some leaves from Clearly for Art, and coloured them with alcohol inks, adding some copper jump rings. I distressed the edges of my layers, and coloured them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

So there you have it, two different looks, but the same stamps. Thanks for stopping by today, xx

Forgotten Friday 37- it's THAT time of year again!

Hi folks, I hope that you are all well, and keeping busy on the crafting front. Have you got nagging feelings about getting your Christmas cards made yet, or have you got lots made already? Anyway, it's not Christmas that I'm talking about today, it's Halloween. I decided to use some neglected Halloween stamps for my Forgotten Friday project this week, they haven't been used for a year, so I reckon they qualify for this post!
It's also given me the chance to incorporate my new Limited Edition Distress Ink colours, as if I needed much of an excuse for that!

I chose to use a large tag, and stamped and embossed a spooky house from Chocolate Baroque, before masking it with Eclipse tape. I then coloured my tag with the Distress Inks, and spritzed the tag with Perfect Pearls. I then used a fabulous embossing powder called 'Halloween' from WOW, the colour is great, to emboss the word 'Spookylicious', at the top of the tag. I coloured the image with Polychromos pencils. All I have left to do is add some toning ribbon, and my tag will be finished.

I have taken a sideways view of the tag as well, because it was really hard to show the shimmer in the light this morning.

Anyway, why don't you have a rummage through your stash, and see what you have neglected. Leave a link in my comments over the next week, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx

A Taste of Italy

Hi folks, it's unusual that I manage a midweek post these days, I know, as life always seems so busy. I've been away so many weekends lately, that I've almost forgotten what home looks like! I met up with two of my lovely Craft Stamping Quartet buddies Lesley and Jo at the Stamp Magic Show at Doncaster. We don't get to see each other very often, so it was great to see them even just for a little while. I was spending the weekend with my parents, so I took my Mum to the Show too, which was nice for her, as she is an avid crafter too. She has only recently got a Big Shot, and it has opened up a whole new world for her. She has had a new lease of life from a crafting point of view, and it is lovely to see.

I made a few modest purchases, as I have been to several shows recently, so not too much to report. I am looking forward to trying out my Vintaj blanks now in my Big Kick, as I have all of the necessary bits and pieces that I need to get on with that now. I found the Vintaj blog yesterday, that is certainly one beautiful blog to look at if you like anything Vintaj related.

This week, my followers reached the one hundred mark, I have had several new followers recently, and I feel very honoured that you have chosen to follow me. I appreciate all of of my followers taking the time to stop by to look at what I am doing, and I know that not everyone chooses to leave comments, but I'd like to say thank you anyway.

Glenda over at Chocolate Baroque has some new stamps that she has released this week. There is free p & p until tomorrow. There are two sets 'Woodland Dreams' a lovely tree based set, and 'Echoes of Italy', an Italian based set. This set is very close to my heart, as I love Italy, and frequently go there on holiday. I have made several samples with this set, some of which you will be able to see over on the Design Team blog this week, and a couple that I will post on here.

My first sample that I have chosen to show you here is very photograph heavy, but please bear with me, as I really enjoyed making this one! Some of you will have seen the start of my Paris journal a couple of weeks ago in my Forgotten Friday post. I had already made this particular little journal as a sample for Glenda, using the fabulous Echoes of Italy stamps, among others in the Chocolate Baroque range.

I chose to use the fabulous Echoes of Italy papers as a background for my pages, and they just went perfectly with these stamps. I used chipboard covers, and Kraft card for my pages. I have used the stamps mostly as background accents throughout the book, as you will see, but added them to tags as well, which I will use for journalling later.

Here, I have used a photograph as a pocket, to place tickets and memorabilia behind. There are some useful little scroll stamps, great for adding to the tags, as little edge stamps.

This double page reflects a trip to Venice, and uses the 'Weekend in Venice' stamp plate too, also some of the 'Harlequin Mask' stamps. The crackle stamp on the 'Echoes of Italy stamp plate is a stamp that I am going to use over and over. It is a fabulous stamp, and a great size too. I added a train ticket to Venice, some Euros, as everything is so expensive there, and a little leather tag, as we go to the markets to buy leather goods in Venice.

There is a much softer feel to these pages, as this was our visit to 'Casa Juilietta', or Juliet's house. There is a photograph of the balcony, and a statue of Juliet herself.  I love Verona, it's a beautiful city. I have used a piece of lace for a pocket, to add to the feminine feel.

Gardone is a town on Lake Garda itself. Everywhere is very bright and colourful, the buildings are painted in strong yellows, terracottas, etc. There are bright flowers everywhere, and the colours are an explosion on the eyes. We visited Il Vittoriale, a house and gardens that reminds me very much of Portmerion for its quirkiness. There is even half of a ship in the garden! The lake views are stunning, and there are lots of statues, arches and columns everywhere. The stamps were just perfect to add to the atmosphere of my pages.

For my last two sections, I have two very different pocket options. On the left, for the visit to Malcesine, on a cable car visit, I have used a conventional little diagonal pocket, matching the paper to the background. On the right hand side, for our trip to Milan, I have used a beer mat for the pocket, tucking photographs, receipts, and other memorabilia behind.

My little book only measures 6" x 6", it is a great size to hold in your hand, and look through. It has fold out flaps, and with its pull out tags, is very interactive. I hope you have enjoyed looking at my project, and I'll be back soon with another one. Thanks for stopping by, xx

Forgotten Friday 36- Some old and new

Hi folks, a quick post today, as I'm travelling Northwards to visit my Parents for the weekend. My card this week is not strictly all forgotten stash, as it was not made solely for this post. However, there is enough hoarded stash that I am bending the rules to use it!

I made this card for my Nephew's Birthday recently, using Pan Pastels. It was the first time that I had ever tried using these, and I love the vibrancy that they give on projects. I gessoed over some Viva Terra that I had brushed through some sequin waste. I then added some pastels to give some base colour, and then stamped with Versamark and used the pastels again to get a stronger colour laid onto the card. I then added feature stamps with Stazon . I used a piece of Stampbord as the main section, adding an ideology clock and spinner for an element of interest. It's hard making cards for lads, and I know that he was pleased with his card.

Have a rummage through your stash, and if you make a project with your forgotten items, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, xx

Forgotten Friday 35- getting ready for another trip!

Hi Folks, it's been a week since my last post, and a lot has happened since then. I went to visit my Daughter last weekend, and we had some much needed time together. I helped her sort some bits and pieces out for her student house, making her room feel a bit more homely. It was lovely to see her.

I also went to the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight on Saturday. This is my favourite show I think, as I love the atmosphere, and the stands that exhibit at this show. I met up with my two blog friends Jo, and Lesley, sadly missing Elaine, or our quartet would have been complete. We met up with several of our Chocolate Baroque Guild friends, who we rarely see these days, so it was lovely to see them again. Lou, Rebecca and Sarah particularly, it was so great to see you girls.

I love to catch up with Jo (Zart) and Jennie at the show, but I had a terrible headache on Saturday, so I only managed the briefest of hellos girls, sorry. I bought some new rubber from several stands including Stamp Camp and Lost Coast, and am really itching to make some projects with those amazing stamps. It was very busy at the show, and sadly I didn't get to all of the stands, so there were several that I know I missed that I would have liked to have looked at.

I spent quite a bit of time at the IndigoBlu stand with Kay and Alfie. Kay was demoing their new Flitter Glu, a really great new product that you can ink up your stamps with, and apply gold leaf or glitter over the top. It captures really fine detail. I'm going to make some bits and pieces with it soon, so watch this space. I was really proud to see some of my samples on their stand too, including a couple that I dropped off to them on the day.

My favourite purchase of the day had to be a new Vintaj Big Kick, which will be able to emboss Vintaj blanks to use for jewellery or mixed media projects. I will also use it to replace my Big Shot, which I've had for quite a long time. I run a card class from home, so the Big Shot will still get used in the class anyway.

Okay, on to today's project! I have chosen to rake through my very neglected Darkroom Door stamps this week. My Husband has booked up for us to go away on a short holiday to Paris next month, to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We have never been there together oddly enough, I've been a few times, on school trips, etc, but we've never gone as a couple. I've decided to make a small journal to record memories of our trip, and collect ephemera that I bring back. So, I have covered the front and back covers of my journal, and started to prepare the pages. I will add pockets, and make some tags, hopefully by the time we go, the journal will be ready!

I have gone with a soft plum colour scheme as my overall base for the journal, it's my favourite colour. I have chosen the Montmartre stamp as the main focal stamp for the front cover, stamped onto a piece of Kraft card with a Versafine, and added clear embossing powder. I have used a white pencil to highlight the street lamps. I have added the word Paris in a Tim Holtz frame, and metal corners to the cover. I hoard my ideology bits for no reason whatsoever, and decided that I should actually use some on this little book. As I make progress with the album, I will try and show you more photos.

So, if you feel like having a rummage through your crafty stash, and making something with a forgotten or neglected item this week, add a link to my comments, and I'll pop along to take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, xx

Friday news

Hi Folks, I'm away from home this week, so there won't be a Forgotten Friday project from me. However, if you would like to link anything you have made with your neglected stash to this post, I will pop along to your blog to take a look.

I am heading up to Happy Stampers North West on Saturday, but spending two nights with Megan, my Daughter either side of the Show, in Stoke. It will be some much needed time together, so we are very happy about that.

For the past few months, I have had the fabulous news that Kay and Alfie of IndigoBlu wanted me to work as part of their Design Team. I have sent off some samples which will be on display at the Show on Saturday. I have added a link to their blog in my sidebard. Had any of you spotted it? Here are one or two photos of what I have been making for them:

Aren't the stamps lovely? I have had a lot of fun making these, and have lots more ideas, so look out for more posts coming your way soon, hopefully.

Thanks for stopping by today, xx
