We have a monthly work out on one of the forums I live in and this month we had to make something using the resist technique and it had to have flowers in the resist.. I made this Tag and it went to Joanne.. so I hope she liked it ok .. its a bit bright !!!!!!!
A hard card box that I knew I had to keep for something .lol.. well I ahve altered it for a circle of friends gift for a forum friend .. and an actual in the person friend too as its not just on the internet we have met..
Its coverd with Basic grey Papers ..
And agian I have used the Purple Onion stamps.. Its going to become a standing joke I know .. lol
I need to get a set of these for my friend Mandy.. She will love them ..
I think I have all my crafting christmas presents sorted . Just another 5 sets of these stamps and everyones Happy :-)
I have been Making ATC folders a lot recently and wanted to make something different for a friends Birthday.. I was clueless as far as ideas go but my Friend Mandy asked why did I not adapt the ATC folder for Tags instead.. so Thanks Mandy,.. That's exactly what I have done :-)
Again I have Used mostly the flourish stamps from the set from Purple Onion. Yes I know I am harping on about this set .. But really if you are looking for a set of lovely flourishes and decorative embellishment , I think you would be more than happy with this set. At least 2 of my crafting buddies have agreed and gone off and ordered them having seen them in use her.
Well after posting 1st class 2 weeks ago the Domino I made for Karin has never turned up.. So I have made a second one. Its different as I did not have another sheet with the image on that I used before .or any of those beads.
My Friend Gillian runs Monthly Tag swaps ( on 2 forums :-) ) and this is mine for August.I may have gotten carried away as its a bit big for a tag. its 22cmx11cm lol. The Flourish Stamps Used here are from The set I bought recently at Purple onion and I think I have hardly made a thing since getting them that did not use them. I love this set.
I made this Triptych ATc on the theme Mozart's Magic flute for my friend Galina. I hope she wont mind me showing it on here :-).
I tried to make it look like the opera theatre curtains on the outside with the lavish tiebacks .. and on the inside I have Papagano the bird catcher and his love Papagana. hence all the feathers floating around.
Just a little reminder that although My forum is at full capacity, we welcome anyone interested in some of the swaps. I have a list here of the swaps available at the moment... If you are interested in any of them please e-mail or leave a comment in my blog :-)

Well I got an altered Domino from Linda a couple of weeks ago (its amazing and you should go to her blog and have a look) well anyway, it inspired me to try something with an altered domino that I was doing for a friend..
Lazykay (Kath) is running a bookmark swap.. here is my effort.After complaining for over a week that I hated the resist embossing technique cus I could not do it, I have now gone OTT with it and am using it on loads of things lol.
I don't expect I will need to put my name on the back as I could take bets that whoever gets it will be able to spot its mine a mile away. I am a bit predictable.!!
The flourish stamps are from Purple Onion and the butterfly and Quote from Vickie Enkoff's Creative Chaose
I had some craft buddies round on Sunday for a visit and they ALL brought gorgeous pressys for me .. So I thought I would let you see some...
The Note book was made by Seona, the ATC box (and ATC's) by Gillian and the matchbox and watch by Kaz. As well as what you can see in the picture there was a yum selection of ATCs and other useful craft equipment, a HUGE bunch of flowers, and lots of chocolatey goodness :-) ..
Kaz said she had had difficulty getting a good picture taken of the watch so I have taken a couple here for her ...
This was an attempt made on a tag for a challenge to use some form of resist technique. I was not doing too well with the more traditional clear embossing and an iron so I used (peeloffs) Cough cough.. as reverse stencils. I like the tag but I am not using it in the challenge as I actually had a more successful attempt at the clear embossing and the iron. I cant show that as we do a reveal of all the items in the challenge at the end of the month.
So Joanne.. this is the thing you are NOT getting now :-) .
Its the July Colour swap and although I did my cards at Mandys, I didnt like them. I am not managing to craft really at the moment. Lost all inspiration... Anyway decided to give the colour another go.. its a hard colour to work with.. It was chosen by Nicole ! Thanks Nicole lol :-)
