Crafting Community

The forum that has been on the website for years and tears has had a little facelift, it need updating to the latest software and the old template wouldn't work, so have taken the opportunity to give it a little facelift. I hope that you like it and pop along sometime :)

Scones & cookies

I bought some buttermilk, and made some scones recently, scouted around the internet for a recipe, and kind of combined a few, they were lovely scones, so will have to make some more.

I froze most of them, so am still getting through them.

I also made some chocolate chip cookies.....

Birds and charms

So I have had these charms in the cupboard for years, and I am determined to use them up one day, so more birds but with charms too!

Love these quirky stamps, the first I got last year second hand, and the second had for years, so I am sure that I must have published before :)

You can't go wrong with a bird on a card can you?  these first three are definitely plain and simple, nice and easy and no colouring!  the green one is stamped in a metallic ink pad to ring the changes.

Seed head

This one was different for me, I cut an aperture from scrap card, and then used my ranger distress inks to create up this background, using the cut out as a stencil, then stamped just using a black ink pad.  Was pleased with the results.

Am liking these type of stamps, fancy some new ones that I can colour in some of the flowers.

Will have to try with smaller inked area, and overlap the seed head onto the white maybe.

Denim Bag

I made a different style internal pocket for this one.  The pocket is attached at the top only and has a button enclosure.  Gave me a chance to use the amazing auto button hole maker on the machine - so clever.

Card fest...

I have made a few cards over the last few weeks, so will share some over the next few days, so to start with I decided to make little pictures, not done this for ages,
