Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
Please join me in wishing our dear friend Cheryl a very Happy Birthday, I hope restrictions don't stop you from having a lovely day. XXX
Oh it feels really Autumnal outside again today, the heating has gone back on to timer ⏲️, when we got up early yesterday morning everything felt so chilly, even the toilet seat, which was a bit of a shock 😲!!
I wanted to share a picture (above) of the Cute critter that Karen kindly gifted to me recently, I have to say that myself and my girls have hugged and thrown him across the room, although we felt a bit guilty being mean to him, it's such a genius idea to gift something that someone can hug, cry on, shout and scream at and as Karen said 'throw across the room in temper'' the girls just wanted to try him out, so they threw him at each other, it worked as they ended up crying with laughter, which had Paul and I doing the same. I have asked Karen to make one for the girls too, so that they can have their own, that also means that they can keep their hands off mine! Karen you are on to a winner with this idea, such a unique gift idea, my girls have always had a 'comforter' they have a 'lello' which was their word for 'Yellow', it started out as a yellow, brushed cotton cot sheet, with little Winnie the Pooh's on, they both have one (they had matching bedding), maybe it's a twin thing that they both ended up with the exact same comforter, they now resemble a piece of grey rag, they both still have them under their pillows today. So cute bless them, they are so excited to receive their own critter. Thanks so much Karen XXX
Michele's Magazine Review
Diecutting Essentials has a brilliant free gift this month which can be used for so many occasions.
Here’s the magazine with the free gift-photos got a bit mixed up or maybe it was me that’s mixed up!!
First feature using the free gift.
More ideas using the free gifts, nice ideas for craft projects.
Clean & Simple card ideas using the free gift. Theses would be quite easy to copy using other Dies
Another feature on how to create your own stamps to match your Dies. Nice cards in this article.
Great article on Mono prints and it seems easy enough to do.
Brilliant feature on hinged Diecutting, making some gorgeous cards.
Great to see someone using a basic set of Dies and producing 5 very different cards
Part two of this article.
Some great ideas for gift tags.
I’m sure most of us haven’t go this Die but it gives us a few ideas perhaps using what we already have in our stash.
That’s all for this week so
Thanks so much Michele for a fantastic Magazine Review, it looks as though all of the articles are new and not recycled from other magazines! which is a bonus, I was actually thinking about formally complaining about the repeated articles in my magazines but I 'm pretty sure that they would say that they had to recycle some features because of Covid-19!! There are some great features in this issue, I am biased as I love a wreath card, so the free gift is right up my street! Having said that there are some great features showing how to use the free gift to make other projects. There are a couple of really great features encouraging you to get the most out of your Crafting. The first is a feature showing how to use but parts of die cut cutting, both the inny and outy!! The second feature showing you how to look at your older dies and use them with the 'Hinged' technique, to breathe new life into them.
Thank you so much Michele for a great review, another fantastic Magazine. XXX
Thats all for today Ladies, I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Love and hugs to all of you,
