Green bag!!

This 'green bag' is made using the Pinflair kit, it comes with the jute bag,fabric,card,buttons and twine/yarn.

I have made this as a gift for Christmas and Im going to fill it up with small gifts of what the recipient likes, so yes..there will be chocolate in there!!

I made a pocket for one side, as there is plenty of fabric, attaching using pinflair bookbinding glue, to hem the edges and pinflair glue to attach to the bag and the pocket, it isnt stitched on, I used a fabric pen to make faux stitches. Finished the bag by stitching 2 different shades of yarn along the handles.x

Re-Use Recycle!!!

Well...after a few days of rain it is gloriously sunny,chilly,but beautiful blue skies!
I promised my little daughter we would plant up her little wellies, as she loves them but has grown out of them! So today we have been very green,using peat free soil! she has planted a few snowdrops,crocus and narcissis, so all she has to do is wait and watch them appear in her wellies!! I thought snow drops were a good option, as however harsh the winter, they poke their heads up early in the year.xxx

Watercoloured Villiage

This is another purchase from Ally Pally, this is using a Create A Scene set of stamps,designed and hand drawn by Sheena Douglass for Creative Expression,some of them, as there are loads on the plate of stamps, this is using the Villiage set. I watercoloured the main village stamp and used the separate grass and flowers to fill in the picture, I then added Spray & shine glaze from Crafters companion.

Having a play...

I went to Alexandra Palace on Saturday for the Big Stamp & Scrapbook show,hada lovely chat with Sara ( Crafters Companion) and Jayne Nestorenko, also Paul Church (ws templates) Sheena ( Create a scene) There were so many faces from Create & Craft it was a great day. Well I have just posted my samples to Sara for Sunday launch on Create & Craft,Ideal world 2pm,popcorn Christmas stamps,watch this space for samples over the weekend. So as I am not doing any samples at the moment I could have a play, I bought this stamp from Creative expressions stand! It is wonderful and one of the designs was made into a gorgeous 6.5 dia lantern using one of the stamps, this has taken roughly 20 stamped and embossed images joined to make the lantern!
