Ive had a GREAT day cardmaking, tag making, new punch trials, photography, and a little something for me. I also managed a hardcore sesh down at the gym - spinning, x-trainer, belly busting and 40 min poochy walk. Ahem, that all didn't come without incident though as I took a few bites of carbs this evening so I have been naughty with a bit of garlic bread with cheese. Oh dear. But, its nearly Christmas and it could have been worse - it could have been pasta and creamy sauce or fish and chips. Who am I trying to convince here? You or me?
So here are a few of my "hand-mades" and projects:
Tonic sent me some gorgeous new punches to trial few weeks back. This is punch number 1 - cutesy snowman who Ive lovingly called Burt. He is GORGE. He cuts out beautifully and Im thinking threading ribbon through his side slots is a good idea too. Look out for more Tonic punches this coming week. Go here to see a list of stockists.
I really fancied faffing with food colouring and water this afternoon but could NOT be bothered to drag out the DSLR. Instead I used my little minxy Canon Ixus 80IS (it packs a punch, I dare say) and snapped this.
**a pal noticed that the splash of dripped ink looks a little like a dolphin....go on, look closely...amazeballs**
When I get a moment, Im deffo going to trial it with my DSLR to get it a little more crisp but,for a pokey little point and shoot, I dont think it did a bad job.
Tag Time.........but not Tim Holtz 12
Having only just gotten some of my Tim supplies to trial out his "12 tags of Christmas", I couldn't get into the spirit of his game today. Instead I made this tag here. BUT! **STOP THE PRESS*
Massive error alert - I forgot to attach the "never" word strip to the tag. Oh Dear!
It's been stuck on now. He heeeeeee, Im such a donut.
It now lives in this cute bag, attached to the embossed bingo card.
**the little wax sack on the bingo card? Thanks to The Ribbon Girl for sending me some. Fun little pockets they make**
I dug this out from two years ago today. I made it from an acrylic album. As you may have guessed, Im not a mini book fan so using the "pages" from the book acted a perfect backing to make this christmassy hanging for our lounge mirror.
its so pwitty, even Mark likes it.
Me love craft. .......A little nik-nak to adorn my office shelves made from various sized cotton reels.
Its just a whim, a little fancy - something cute.
Ok, so now the mojo is back Im going to be busy doing some other bits and bobs including demoing a FAB product from Letraset that you all simply ave to own. Im being deadly serious. I begged them to send me it to trial and let me tell you - its going to blow your socks off.
PS: Check out the post below for my "new but late" digital stamp. Its been popular which means some of you are late (like me) making crimbo cards! He heeeeeee
