butterflies

a big thankyou to Tracy for her original idea for this design.
My version pales in comparison but I enjoyed making it.
I used cosmic shimmer sprays for the background.
The flower is made from the new Kraft Glassine paper which i love!

more storage

here are some more storage ideas ...

I found this wallet for paintbrushes in Lidl for about £2.99!!!
[paintbrushes removed and given to an artist friend]



...perfect size for Sizzix Strip Dies
I have 8 in here so far!


And this is a 3 ring binder for the sort of cards that kids collect [eg pokemon]
[and added my own custom printed label]


And i bought zip-lock inserts from
storage4crafts zip-n-flip sheets
http://www.storage4crafts.co.uk/shopx/product.php?productid=83&cat=0&page=5


just the right size for embossing folders
[i have way too many!!]

Anyone need a Big Shot?

I am sooooo excited - my Vagabond arrived this morning and its better than I hoped!!

So I now have a Big Shot [pink and black] that I no longer need.
If anyone is interested - or knows anyone - let me know or it goes on ebay.  I don't want much for it [plus postage.]

Storage for stamps handy tip

I found these Kraft 3 ring binders in Paperchase ...
they are just about the right size for the Stampers Anonymous sheets of stamps.
You can get at least 3 sheets in so they are useful if your posh Ring Binder by T!m is a bit full!!

I use them to store the 'seasonal' stamps in eg christmas, valentines.

My First Time!!

This is the very first time I have attempted to do this, so I'm not high on expectations!!
I guess I will publish my future projects as I make them, but will post a few of my latest favourites on here now.

You will see that I am totally influenced by the one and only Tim Holtz and use his - and Ranger - products mainly for my projects, and take great inspiration from his designs and ideas and I unashamedly plagiarise from him!!! ;o)
I am currently saving for and buying a lot of his latest release Alterations Dies and Ideaology, Spring 2011 releases.
