Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
Because you ladies are so very crafty I get to do another
'Mixed Craft Saturday'
First up are my 'Bag-o-Lopes', yes you did read it right !
Daft name but basically they are bags made from envelopes,
Which is where the name comes from I guess, anyway
They are super easy, do I thought I would show them today
Then if you like the look of them i will do a video tutorial.
So let me know in the comments, basics I found a couple of old envelopes, stamped a random pattern all over ggem, then cut top off and score, the only slightly tricky part is shaping bottom
Corners, the large white one has a top closure added which is
Simply a 2 inch deep piece of card cut to same width as bag, I cut it with a scalloped edge die, punched two holes through bag and
Closure then threaded a piece of ribbon through, the smaller
Bag was just cut along the top with a small! Scalloped die.
I hope you like them, they are so quick and easy!
Janet's Keepsake Box
Janet has made this pretty keepsake box for her
Grand Daughter in Law, it started out as an MDF box from
Fernli Designs, but Janet has turned into something so very special with the addition of some pretty fabric, lace and ribbon.
The top has been beautifully decorated with a doily, a heart
Shaped Applique, some beautiful flowers and a pretty big
Janet, what an amazing gift, to receive something so
Beautiful that has been hand crafted by a family member.
It will definitely be treasured.
Thank you for sharing
Lynda's Painted Canvases
I looks as though Our Lynda has gone all 'Arty' !!!
Lynda these canvases are amazing, I'm sure the photos have
Not done them justice, as they look as though they will
Shimmer in the sunlight, I adore both colour ways,
How did you get the movement of the paint to be so
Perfect?? I can see that you have used a variety of the Pebeo
Paint range, I think they all give different effects.
You must be absolutely thrilled with them, I cannot
Imagine the 'buzz' of having your own artwork hanging
On your walls, it seems that you can turn your hand to just
About any craft Lynda.
Thank you so much for sharing
