SSP Guild Members - Ally Pally - Sept 08

Well here I am back home after 4 days in London - phew - well and truly shattered. What a lovely time I had on Saturday at Ally Pally. Here is the pic of some of my friends from the SSP Guild - starting from back left : Vonny, Cheryl, Jo, Becky and of course, moi, Janet or janeyc49 !
It was lovely being able to put faces to names and we also had an ATC swap amongst ourselves :) It was really lovely to meet up and hopefully we shall be able to do so again in the near future. I didn't overspend, but it was lovely to see all the new crafting goods and to indulge in a few 'goodies'. I know some of the Guild members were hoping to go on the Sunday - do hope you all had a lovely time. It was just a shame that we were all indoors on one of the hottest weekends of the year !!

Altered House Swap - CSF

Here are the last 3 Altered House swaps for the Craft Swap Forum. I have had a lot of fun
making these, using different techniques and products like Glimmer Mists - I am quite pleased with the results and hope that whoever receives them will like them. Thanks for looking.

Altered House swap - Craft Swap Forum

Hi, I have had a very busy week and not had much time for posting - I have joined a swap on CSF which is to produce 8 Altered House shapes - these were a free download shape from a CSF member - Dan. I have had so much fun playing with these shapes but I still have another 3 to make. Hope you like them and a really big thanks to Dan for the idea. Will post the last 3, as and when I manage to get them done which must be before Thursday as I am going to London for the Ally Pally show :)
Thanks for looking.

Back home from holiday - 'itching' to craft !

Hi, here I am all refreshed back from holiday. A full week with no crafting, only reading craft magazines - I have come home 'itching' to craft ! These two cards are for a challenge on CSF - the challenge was to make something for a man. The first card was made before I went on holiday - I used part of a map for the background, stamped the motorbike and matted and layered onto brown and then gold mirri card. I added a gold peel-off and a couple of gold stars.

For the second card I have used Creative Imaginations paper and embellishment by Marah Johnson. I love the epoxy sticker sentiment which I mounted onto a piece of the backing paper and then silver mirri card. A silver peel-off border finishes the card. This was designed for a guy who was once a 'goth'.

Thanks for visiting.

Lola Rose Birthday Card

I think I must be 'on a roll' - another birthday card done !
I love the Lola Rose papers from Pink Petticoat- I used the horizontal wavy lines for the
backing paper then printed the cute image onto card, matted onto purple card and then silver mirri card, coloured in with Whispers pens. Finished with some lilac ribbon & Happy Birthday sentiment.
