Magnolia Vs Stampavie *Week 9* - Give a Little

Sunday, 11 January 2009 - - 7 Comments

Over @ Magnolia Vs Stampavie, This week we have a Gift Challenge going on....

The challenge is as followers:

*Week 9* Give a Little

It’s now After the Run-down of Christmas and your all starting to relax,

How about a Gift Make?

Make a Handmade Gift, Perhaps you want to send more than a just a Thank you Card to somebody?

Or Possibly have a last minute Christmas Gift to give to somebody who you haven’t seen yet?

Maybe like myself have a birthday to prepare for and want to make that extra special Gift from the heart?

Perhaps you got a last minute Christmas Gift to make, for somebody you not had a chance to see over the Festive times?

Whatever the Reason, Make us a Gift and enjoy the Challenge.
So i made a Gift Tin for a Family Friend who we hadn't had chance to see for Christmas as they don't live in the UK, We got to see them and i handed over a Altered Paint Can that was filled with Treats for them.

I wasn't able to get a photo of the actual tin i gave, as i had forgot in the excitement.
But i did the same tin as the one in the photo not so long ago for Lorraine as a little gift.
The only difference was Tildas Hair was coloured slightly different.


Pringle, Soft Center - Sugar Bowl Challenge 1

Saturday, 10 January 2009 - - 7 Comments

Finally found some "me" Time to be able to get a card done.
I have lost my mojo at the moment i seem to be out of practice making cards etc .
which is really frustrating, I don't know why but i don't feel as excited about crafting lately but hopefully that will improve with the more i start getting back into my crafting.
First thing first is to finish the new blog make over I'm doing on here, and then move my blog over to a different address.

Here is my card i done for the Sugar Bowl.

Challenge 1 - Sketch by Tiets
Below is my Card i have done following the Sketch above.

I really enjoyed making this card once i got over the frustration of not remembering techniques and feeling like i was starting from sketch as a newbie crafter lol.

I used a mixture of matting and layering, along with Embossing and Distressing with Inks.


Working Progress

Friday, 2 January 2009 - - 2 Comments

Please excuse my work in progress for a while, I am very busy stream lineing all my "work" and stuff, and decided i needed a new Blog that wasnt involed around work related things ie my store
Im not sure if i will keep it on the Craftykrafts name yet or move over to another name, which i might well do so shortly , but at moment the blog looks a little bare until i complete it all.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas xxx
