Golden Oldie...

Happy Friday,

I'm demonstrating at H&J crafts in Louth today form 10am till 4pm so if you are in the area why not pop in and say hi!

Todays Golden Oldie is a bit of a multi layer fancy but I do love the way it looks like an optical illusion.

Its been fab looking back through some of my golden oldies to see where ideas came from and also how I have developed as a crafter.  I really hope you've enjoyed looking back too!

Share your sorrow...

Happy Wednesday,

I haven't shared this card before because I am always a little unsure when sharing cards for sympathy or that sneak of loss as we have all been touched with loss in our lives.  However yesterday as I was driving I heard all the news ( stuck on the M25 which as i'm sure my British Blog family will know all about) regarding the tragedy in Manchester on Monday evening.

This card came straight to my mind and I thought I would share this todays as I feel the sentiment sums up the feelings of so many of my friends, family and extended crafty family at this time.







The sentiment is very simple but I feel that I says what I and hopefully all of you feel about the tragedy ( I rarely share personal comments on the blog but this time I felt it was appropriate I really hope you all agree)



I won't finish today with Enjoy just with the simple sentiment...

Golden Oldie...

Happy Tuesday,

Another day another golden oldie.  I will be starting with new posts and cards from this weekend so keep your eyes peeled!

Todays golden oldie is from January 2014 and I thought I would share a few projects I made with the same die.  Ive lost the name of this one but it is a tonic die.



These really show my love of a lattice die!

Goldne Oldie Box again...

Happy Saturday,

Another box today this time with a centre piece that is die cut instead of an easter egg!

As I have been looking through my older posts and files of photos ( you wouldn't believe how many photos i have of cards and projects loads Ive never blogged!) Ive seen how many different 3D projects I have made.  I have found these a real inspiration and will be making lots more boxes and 3D projects in the coming months!






This post was made using the Spellbinders Filigree delight I die I used for so many different projects ( always a sign of a good value die to me)



The box is made of acetate which is one of my favourite mediums to make boxes for as the contents can be protected and seen at the same time.

I made this originally as a gift for a good friend who left Spain ( where I was living at the time) the original post can be seen HERE




I have had some lovely comments over the last week and I just want to say Thank you all so much and to reassure everyone That I am Ok and just taking a small break as I have been crafting non stop ( or so it feels) for over 2 years!

Enjoy...

Golden Oldie vintage...

Happy Friday,

I have chosen a golden oldie today that will also fit as a vintage card as it uses one of the original Striplets by Sue Wilson as well as spellbinders n one of my Easter Egg boxes.  I used to make a new easter egg box every year I must make more boxes!

Golden Oldie Tutorial...

Happy Thursday,

Ive had a renewed interest and comments from the video for this card on You Tube so I thought I would share it in case some of my blog family haven't seen it!  I used a mixture of Sue Wilson and Spellbinders for this card and it works with lots of different background dies, i have an idea of a version with a square die?!?

To see the original post click HERE



This is the green version but the original post has this in red so worth clicking through to see a different colour?!?

Golden Oldie...

Happy Tuesday,

Ive chosen one of my favourites for todays golden oldies and the technique used on this card is really useful as you can supplement loads of different dies to make this one!
























The technique is really simple all I did was to cut the die which is square shaped with four arms to it.  I then pulled the arms into the centre and adhered it with a pearl.  I added a lilac square in the centre and then simply repeated the process and covered the front of this hand made gatefold card with them.

Peony and Box...

Happy Monday,

There isn't a way I could revisit any golden oldies without featuring this box and matching card which has been the most popular project, and tutorial on my blog since the beginning!

There is a video tutorial on this available on the original post HERE


I have added a few more shots ion this card and box as it really is one of my favourites and still has ( after being gifted back to me by Wendy) pride of place in my craft room!

Golden Oldie...

Happy Saturday,

Today I am demonstrating at the Create It event in maidstone on the Art of Craft stand so if you are in the area pop along and say hi!

I have decided that whilst I make some changes to the structure and content on my blog I would share some golden oldies with you over the next week or so.  What I mean is some of the projects I made at the beginning of my crafting journey on the blog.  Some of these have proved to be the most popular posts and I know that as many blog family has grown a lot of my earlier cards and projects may have drifted off into the air!










That said I thought I would start with this project I first posted in June 2014 which seems so long ago.
