Sympathy Cards

I find Sympathy cards, along with masculine cards, the hardest of all to make. I seem to have had to send a few of these out in the last couple of weeks so I decided that I would be a mini production line and make a few to have on standby.

I was really pleased with how it turned out. Now to tackle masculine cards......

Happy crafting.

Candle Box

Tonight at Crafters Anonymous we made this candle box. The class was taught by Jane McGladesmith. I love the idea of this box and I know I will make it again and again filling it with different things (chocolates; booties; jewellery the list goes on)

Happy crafting.

Catch up

It is a very chilly day today - we had a huge frost - brrrr. I have my fire going so my lounge is warm and toasty. Only thing is I am now upstairs in my craft room and its freezing!
I was looking at my photos today and I realised I had not posted pics of the last two classes that we have have at Crafters Anonymous.
The first pic is a "Star Card" that was taught to us by Sharna. I must admit I made a bit of a hash of the card as I misread the measurements. I should stick by the builders code "measure twice and cut once". Once I had the correct measurements the card was able to shut properly.

The second pic is the "faux postage" technique that Tia taught us. Its a great technique - lots of fun things - tearing, sponging, stamping.

Happy crafting

Moving House

I made this card for my online buddy Julia. Her and her family have just moved house. I am so jealous she has a new, big craft room!!!

I attended the last Ustamp bloghop and as soon as I saw the tutorial (designed by Lorri Heiling) I knew that I was going to make it for her.

I love the window box - a perfect resting place for a little bird!

Thanks for dropping by.

What can I put in here.....?

Isn't this a great idea? We made this last night at Crafters Anonymous in our Monday night Online class. The very talented Anne showed us how to do it. Anne's version had a permanent lid (put it on after filling the caddy) but I read the instructions wrong (well I thought I had) so I decided to make mine into a flip top lid. I'm pleased with the finished result. And I can see myself making more of this caddies as gifts.

Happy crafting
