Sorry again to my followers I seemed to have slipped by the wayside again. To be honest I haven’t been crafting a great deal lately what with work and family I really haven’t had the time. I have to make an effort and make the time, hopefully this should be a little easier as I am going to be spending some time with my Mum soon so it will be fun to craft together.
I did spend yesterday afternoon having some “me” time at the Paperterie in Aberdeen, I watched Sue Wilson do a couple of demos (and hopefully helped her with her camera) and then spent a couple of hours in a workshop with Julia Watts where we made this wonderful card.
I had a great time and was very pleased with my results. Thank you to both Sue and Julia for coming all the way up to Aberdeen and to the Papeterie for hosting the event.
OK I know, I didnt last very long with my promise of blogging once a week did I? I must try harder!
Here is a new Instructable that I have written and I would love it if you go and take a peek
Whilst you are there check out Deann’s Book box and Kim’s shadow box as they are fabulous!
Hi bloggers, here is a project I made with all the little scraps from my typography papers as the background to the canvas (Hels Sheridan calls it paper blocking and I love the idea, thanks Hels). I used the Typography stamps to add some more interest to the background. The paper roses are made using spellbinders and Marianne dies. The pen is from one of the Typography stamp sets, stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I am going to be doing a class on this one in February over at Cullen Crafts.

Here are the other 2 things I made using the decorative diamond stamp from Oak House Studios for the One Stamp Project. For these two projects I used shrink plastic.
I used the stamp to make the kite for the wee boy to fly
I have saved the best until last in my opinion, I really love how this jewelry set came out and plan to run a class on how to make it at Cullen Crafts.
