Welcome to my world of craftiness

Best Wishes…

Hi everyone. hope you all had a nice Christmas and New year. I didn’t do much crafting in the holiday, but I’m hoping to get cracking now we are into the new year.

I did purchase some new Spellbinder dies designed by Becca feeken. Graceful fans border and graceful frame maker. I did watch her demo these on Create and Craft and thought the frame maker would be useful as I do like my frames. To be hones it takes a little practice to get the corners to match up but if they are not perfect you can always cover them like I have on this card.

Other items used are…  Sue Wilson noble squares and stitched tags,  Justrite vintage labels ten, Anna Marie Designs paper, flowers from Wild orchid crafts, Sentiment stamp was free from this months cardmaking and papercraft magazine.

Hopefully see you all soon…



My finished craft cabin…

Hi everyone.

So Ive finally moved into my new craft cabin, Im very pleased with the end result, all cladded inside, lots of plugs, lighting, carpet, TV, coffee machine, heater, bed for the dogs, ohhh so cosy. A huge thank you to our friend Mathew Thompson for all the Saturdays working on the inside and getting it looking fabulous and not forgetting my hubby who is very happy I have my own crafty place so he can have the TV on as loud as he wants now:)

I have to get a few more under the worktop storage so it looks a little neater but Im all spent out for now so it will have to wait.

Im hoping to do more videos in the new year so if you click the subscribe button it will keep you up to date. Its taking me a while to get to grips with doing  videos and the editing, so bare with me, lol.

Anyway, that me done for 2016  so I’ll  be wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy new year. See you all soon… xxx

Hi folks, I went to the NEC craft show last week, had a fabulous time, I do love the Christmas show. Ive been wanting to have a go at powertex but the workshops fill up that quick I miss out, so I bought a starter kit and a few other bits and decided to have a go…My 1st project was a wooden photo frame I did in ivory powertex and I added some fairy lights. my 2nd project was just a polystyrene ball and a little angel, I used the bronze powertex and gold power. Its a bit messy but I love the effect you get.
My craft cabin is nearly complete, cant wait to move in but Im dreading moving all my stuff (don’t know where to start) lol. Pics to follow…….
