Actually the next one I would like to try is the one from the gentlemanscrafter blog, called teabag fold I think or something of that nature.. Just need to get my measurements right.

I’ve also been looking at graph it pens reviews, I love how they color but wanted to hear first hand off someone how they felt about them, really. Anyone ? 🙂 I currently use spectrum noirs, do I switch or carry on and try to master the noirs… Hmmm

Oh made this for my mother in law, for her daughters 21st. Was pleased how it turned out!

Right off to bed I think, hope tomoro is a better day!



Finally had the time to get my scan n cut out it’s box today!!

Hopefully I’ll be able to upload a pic of one of the stamps I cut round with it. It actually cut round the tiny tiny stands of hair! I am shocked lol

I just need to figure out how to cut the “spaces ” inside the shape as it were…
Also cut out a sentiment and it was perfect cut!

I can see the mats wearing out of tackiness pretty quickly though, but that can’t be helped.

Had a lovely Easter Sunday with my family, now off to see how I can upload these pics…

Here Goes….

New chapter of my life it would seem….. i am addictive to most things paper crafting!!!

Cards, Boxes, Scrapbooking, Digi stamps, Stamps, Spectrum noir markers….Love it and cant get enough. Have always loved art, but since having my three beauitful babies, i seem to love it even more, esp when my eldest son and daughter join in, and let me share what i have learned. 🙂

will hopefully be uploading the things i make, colour, draw as i go…practice makes perfect so they say.
