Friday Round Up

Happy Friday Everyone

I can't believe it is here already.  Where does the week go????  I have spent so much time behind the scenes loading lots of new gorgeous products  in store and moving items to our sale section.  A big reshuffle is perhaps the best word for it.  To me its the mundane side of running an online store but it just has to be done.

Anyway after I posted the video last Monday, I had a customer request a custom made card for a 21st.  I decided to use the leftover supplies from the video I had made as well as the same overall theme.  (See video in post below) I thought it would be cool to show another card made using the same patterned papers, a flower from the Prima Strawberry Kisses Flower pack.  The 21 (number) is cut using my cricket.  With just a handful of great quality supplies you can have a productive, fun, cardmaking session and make several different looks and styles.

What do you think???

So it wouldn't be fair to say that I had added lots of new products to the site without showcasing some here.  All these products can be found in New Arrivals.  My creative obsession with Christy Tomlinson, (so excited to offer some of her new She Art line in my store).  I have already given the Vintage Doily template a run.  take a look at my dimensional flower on the canvas below.  So so so so inspired by her.

This technique was created using the doily template above and a slathering of texture paste.  Note:  It took a couple of days to dry but is was so worth it, I love it.  Thanks Christy for your inspiration.  This canvas is a work a progress, not sure where its heading but I am not getting attached to any outcome with it just playing with different techniques.  The best way to create......

Check out Christy's video here using some of her range including this same template.


This post ended up being longer than I had orginally planned.  I had better make a start on my Friday to do list.  My daughter is due back from camp today and has requested Homemade Ricotta Gnocchi for dinner.  Today will be a mixture of cleaning, working cooking and baking before a busy weekend. 

Have a great day.
