It's that time again, actually I'm a little late ....whoops !!! For my Jones Design Team project, and I've got to be honest here, I kept putting this project off, "why" you ask...well, quite simply because when I opened the package from Jones, I gave out a little squeal followed by a sigh... a squeal because of the stash I received, a sigh because I looked at it and thought, "when am I going to get time to do this"?
It looked so complicated and there were so many little bits to the Candy Box Crafts Rotary Craft Storage Unit, but seriously it takes longer to say than do LOL !!!
These guys really know their stuff, the "building" of it couldn't have been simpler, in fact I got it all out and put it all together in no time, so much so that i forgot to take a picture of all the bits.
There are so many gorgeous papers out there that will compliment this product, and Sandra, in her wisdom, sent me the Kaisercraft Mister Fox collection, nice one Sandra !!!! There were quite a few to choose from but I went for the simplistic everyday look, I have plans for the other stash !!
I can honestly say, everyone NEEDS one of these bad boys in their crafting lives, it holds so much stash, with loads of compartments on top and four drawers beneath and get ROTATES.....EEEEKKK !!! I love it !!!
Anyhoo's here's what i did :
As per the instructions I put it all together first before decorating, I applied a couple of coats of KaiserCraft KaiserColour paint in Sage and Antique White, then applied a bit of dry brushing.
Then it was down to cutting into the Fearless paper from the Mister Fox Collection and covering, I just applied DST top and bottom, as simple as that :)
For the drawers, I used a Cropodile to punch a hole and then tied ribbon through.
Then it was on to decorating the front
I used one of the KaiserCraft Wood Flourishes "Bird Twig" I painted it then applied Embossing Powder to give it a bit of texture.
I gathered a few of the KaiserCraft paper Blooms and first edged them in paint.
Followed by a bit of Embossing Powder., I glued these to the front and added bits of twine.
And now I've started to fill it with come of my favourite Pocket Scrapbooking stash.
I've popped some buttons in one of the drawers, well it would have been rude not to !!
So if you're looking for storage, especially storage that spins, go treat yourself, you wont regret it.

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
