It's In The Can...........

Hi everyone, I can't believe how fast the weeks pass. I've had a lot of birthdays this month and that's meant lots of card making and gift wrapping. So with that in mind, todays project is a gift tin.
I have a few of these tins at home and found them perfect for small gifts. I hope this gives you some inspiration to use up some of your scraps of decorative papers and stamps to make a difference to a gift.
I've used a decorative paper for the top part of the tin and a lime green bazzill for the bottom part. Once cut to size I stamped the quotes and flowers on the green bazzill card. The stamps are from Sugar and Spice and called Happy Birthday Flower. I then attached the papers to the tin and hid any joins with some ribbon. I finished the tin off with a tag using the same Happy Birthday Flower stamps, edging it with some fabulous glamour dust - a must for any craft box. I also coloured the lid with alcohol ink to keep the colour flowing through.Bye for now and happy crafting P x

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
