Candle Holders

The other gift I made for the Fair was these Metal candle holders made using the Flower Folds die and the Big Shot. I bought aluminium shim from the net, to cut them out of. I still have a roll of it so if you would like some and live in Perth then let me know and I will organise it with you. The second one is also embossed on 2 layers using the Finial Press embossing folder.


I have some of these left and if you would like to buy one off me then they are $4.95 each. The larger Red candle one is not available. I put citronella candles in them and use them for the BBQ.

Lovely as a Tree

hi again, the week is flying by and even though I don't have anything much on I have done no stamping except what I taught today at LBC. We did brayering today and used Lovely as a Tree. This is one of my favourite sets as I use it for lots of different types of cards. I used So Saffron, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie for the sky and Wild Wasabi and Always Artichoke for the grass. On one I used the set Curly Cute and the other Teeny Tiny Sentiments.



I hope your week is going well and that you have a nice weekend doing whatever you love most. Thank you for stopping by.

Have you missed me....

Hi there, have you missed me. I haven't posted for 11 days and am happy to be able to post something today. I have been busy with a few classes and getting ready for the craft fair I did on Saturday. I have taken a couple of days to get over it as well. I didn't sell many of the gift items at the fair but will know for next time what people like.
 Anyway last week I taught the inlaid embossing technique and I made a Christmas card that I have already shown you and also this butterfly card. I punched the butterflies and glued them to the white card and then embossed with the new folder called lattice that will be available in the summer mini which starts on December 1st. I then used the butterfly prints stampset and cut the butterfies out instead of punching them. The sentiment is from the set Curly Cute.


thanks for stopping by. Have a good week.

Candle Holder

Hello again, 
I have made a few of these candle holders for the fair I am doing in a couple of weeks. With a red candle it looks OK for Christmas. I'm going to do some with embossing on as well and will show you one when I do.


I have my sister Sue staying today so another short post, so I can spend time with her. She is from Manjimup so we don't see that much of each other so will make the most of the time we have.

Another Owl Card

This is the first Owl Punch card I made using the Wood grain Background. The Owl is so cute. I just thought I would show it not using DSP for the tree. They are so easy to make.


Just a quick post today as I am getting ready for a Stamp A Stack, with lots of cutting to do.

Paper Weaving

hello again, I had a day off from my crafting and went fishing with Graham yesterday. I don't get to spend much time with him, as he works long hours and then on weekends he plays golf, umpires footy in the footy season and goes fishing on his boat. I had planned to go to a local market and a fair, but decided to go fishing, so up we got at 6.AM and went out on the boat. For the first time ever I was seasick and after feeding the fish 3 times, Graham decided to move to a more sheltered spot and that helped. He caught only 3 fish even though we could see them in the water. I had a big one on and was having trouble bringing it in and then it snapped the line. Oh well!!! Anyway it was nice to spend time with Graham, even if we didn't catch much. We got home around 3PM. I haven't been out for about 18 months and think it might be some time before I go again. He can take his mate next time.

Anyway back to card making. I saw this Christmas card on ESAD but cant find it again now to see who created it so if its your idea can you let me know. This card is made with vanilla base and Jolly Holiday DSP.  


  
The second card I made up using retired card and DSP. The base card is Soft Sky and the DSP is Afternoon Tea I think.

 

I'm having a quiet day at home today so hope to get a few posts ready for the week. Have a happy Sunday.

Hi again, 
The other gift that I sent to Aly, my Secret Sister was a set of Owl things. I made a card, a post it note cover with pen and also a tea bag gift holder which I forgot to put the verse in. I used designer paper for these items instead of the woodgrain stamp. I knew Aly liked Owls so that was why I made these items. I also sent her some book marks but I haven't got a photo of them yet but will show you when I do. The surprising thing is that when my Secret Sister was revealed  it was Aly that was sending to me. I never once guessed we had each other as Secret Sisters.




have a good weekend.

Fanatsy Box

Hello... have you wondered where I have been this week. I did so well last week and then totally forgot to update my blog this week. I do have an excuse in that I have been busy making gifts for the craft fair I am taking part in in a couple of weeks time. Its the Craft Thyme fair at Cannington on November 20. If you are in the area drop in and visit me.
Today I want to show you a fantasy box that I made for my Secret Sister on ESAD. Now that we have revealed our identity I can now show you the things I sent her. This is the first Fantasy Box that I have made. I filled the little boxes with ribbons and brads etc.

 well that is all for today. Thanks for stopping by.
