Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Today I would like to share with you the stunning birthday
card I received from our part time 'Madame' Janet, that makes her sound naughty, (all I actually mean in that she lives part time in France) haha!
I wouldn't know where to start with explaining how Janet designed and made the card, It is an easel style card, with a beautifully decorated tag on each day side. The papers used to decorate the card were all french themed.
Janet also created the prettiest flower arrangement, there was so much detail in the card, it must have been so much work, the gorgeous little clock face brads were part of the finishing touches, along with beautiful ribbon and pearl strings.
I absolutely loved the card Janet, thank you so very much xx
Now I have to tell you that I was a very lucky lady yesterday,
The postman bought me a parcel that contained the amazing
Sizzix Big Shot Plus, well I was overjoyed as you can imagine.
I took it straight into my craft room to play and then realised how big it is, I ended up spending the rest of the day tidying and organising everything, do you know I have 3, yes 3 huge
'bit boxes' and some of the bits are quite big! I sorted through them all and got rid of some of the bits. I got the new Dyson out and gave the carpet the cleaning of its life!
I am not sure how many of you have bought the Woodware Die storage folders (black with white spots), well I opened them up tonight, to sort my dies, but I found the magnetic sheet inside the pockets way too flimsy, you would struggle to pull the sheet out and the dies remain in place, so I then spent the next two hours cutting up old mount board up to stick the magnetic sheets to so that it was more sturdy and easier to pull in and out of the pockets, you could also stick another mag sheet on the other side of the mount board too, therefore doubling your storage! It would be easier however if the magnetic sheet were better quality so that you don't have to spend time and money to make them easier to use.
So hopefully I have made enough room now to sit and play today, I did a couple of die cuts yesterday and I was very pleased with the result and an embossing folder which embossed perfectly all over.
So so far so good!!
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday,
\love and hugs,
