Janet's New Boxes
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all relaxed and ready to enjoy the weekend, I hope the nice weather holds out for a little bit longer, the girls had a Super-busy day at the Wildlife Park yesterday, record breaking amount of visitors for February, they took over £10,000 in their restaurant, so needless to say they were shattered when they got home, Lucy had been doing the job of two people and Sophie was a 'Barista' for the day, making all kinds of coffees!
We are off to Farnborough to the Make It Show today with Sue and Margaret, meeting up with Brenda when we arrive. I love this show as it is so much more accessible than other shows and there is a greater range of stands.
I am hoping that it hasn't changed too much, as its in a new Hall this time.
Our first picture today is of Janet's newest Boxes, they are the latest Tonic Box dies, they are a fantastic size Janet and I love how you have decorated them, do the different panels work for both box shapes? The Ballerina panel is so pretty, such a lovely design for gifts for Girls, image buying their first Ballet shoes and presenting them in that box. The other decorative panels are beautiful too, the ornate floral one is decorative enough to just leave as it is, the lattice panel one is perfect for men as it is but could have flowers added to it to embellish it further. Such a lovely collection Janet, thank you so much for sharing them with us. xxx
Now we have Michele's 'in depth' review of 'Die Cutting Essentials' Magazine...….
Diecutting Essentials issue 48 has a gorgeous Tattered Lace teapot die free this month. Plus there’s a great offer to send for coordinating stamps-you just pay the postage.
This is one of the articles inside the magazine using the free gift. It shows you how to use the Die in different ways.
This picture shows you how you can get more from this Die-look at all the different elements you can cut out.
There’s a great feature on using Diecutting as a stencil including a step by step guide.
This feature shows a lovely style of card-Shadow Box Cards. They’re great because they fold flat to post but look very impressive.
That’s everything for this weeks Review.
Thanks Michele for another brilliant magazine review, it makes it so much easier to decide whether to buy or not being able to see so much detail . xx
Val has treated herself to a Trimmer, she has used a Craft knife and mat up until now (Sue does the same and it amazes me how accurate the mats are) so I think you fill the trimmer so much quicker Val, I cannot believe that you make all of those cards without a trimmer, you deserve a medal!
Val also couldn't resist that beautiful Floral corner die, it looks so pretty Val, I can't wait to see it die cut and on a card. I can see why you wanted it. xxx
Michele finally got her £50 prize for sending this card photo in a magazine and writing a short email explaining how to use it. So it just shows it is worth sending in to these things, I always read them but think that my cards wouldn't be good enough!! I actually bought that magazine for a couple of pounds on Moremags as I loved this die when you used it.
Thank you for sharing your happy news with us my lovely xxx
That's all for today ladies, thank you all so much for taking part for taking part in today's blog post.
