Good Saturday morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and enjoying the weekend. I hope that none of you have to go out and fight for your toilet rolls and hand soap! We went out yesterday afternoon as we usually do to get our shopping for the weekend, as we pulled into Aldi car park we saw too women with a trolley literally over flowing with packs of toilet rolls, tissues. hand soap, more than you would ever think of buying. The problem is that people that are going in to buy their normal weekly shopping are unable to get the products that they actually NEED! We were able to get both toilet rolls and hand soap that we have needed all week, we only bought what we needed though, I think that the Shops should put a limit on the amount of each product that people can purchase. Even the Prime Minister has put out a statement stating that there us absolutely no need to stockpile products! I think that this problem has occurred because of the Press scaremongering!
Our first delightful craft today is Janet's incredible Diorama, a beautiful scene inside a white frame, with extra images added to the front of the frame to give dimension to the piece.
The box, backing paper and all laser cuts are from La Blanche, which I think has fast become one of Janet's favourite craft companies. I can totally understand why, their images are beautiful and everything looks so well made.
Thank you so much Janet for sharing your Diorama with us, its stunning xxx
Karen bought this 'Crafty Roo' Stamp designed by Clare Horner at Stamperama, it's such a modern design and works so well with the Honey Doo Paint Splash stamp, Karen made this card for her Niece, who I am sure will love it. I love that sentiment too Karen, perfect for young/teenage girls.
I look forward to seeing what other designs you come up with for this stamp, I imagine you can make it look quite different by using different colours and mediums. It would be fun to have Hairdryer/Brush/hairspray stamps or images in the background too. xxx
Michele's Magazine Review
Papercraft Essentials has a great free gift this month.
Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.
First of quite a few photos showing what you make using the free gift.
Even more idea's!
This look like a great technique that makes some lovely cards.
Interesting article on stamping.
I’m sure we’ve all got some lace that we could try using to create some of these ideas.
Lots of great ideas in this magazine.
Thank you Michele for another great review, those umbrella cards are lovely, so vibrant and cheerful. I have a Stampin'Up! Stamp set with dies too, I might have a go at some of these. They would be good with the Card-i-o stamps too.
I love the look of the Slider cards too and the Tone on Tone stamping, such a great idea and looks really effective.
I am a great lover of lace so that feature is definitely one I am interested in!
Michele I have bought 3 magazines that I wouldn't normally buy because of your Review, I am going to have to stop reading as I post! hahahaha.
Thank you so much my lovely xxx
Well ladies that's all for today's post, I hope that you enjoy the rest of your weekend,
Love and hugs to all,
