Little bit of fun!

I have being spending time out in my craft cave having a little bit of fun, I spent a few hours making this stationary box, I have used some lovely Prima paper and just played.

I have made a little note book for address's and stuck it inside the front with a small pocket for stamps, then I made tags little cute cards and 3 bigger cards leaving sentiments off so they can be used for anything, maybe just to say "HI"
I love receiving things ( except bills) through the snail mail and thought this would make a lovely gift so someone else can receive something nice through the mail.
The tutorial for the stationary box is on Splitcoaststampers  so have a go at making one yourself, who knows you might be the lucky person who gets something nice in the mail!

The winners for the Imagine If blog hops for June are-
Week one, Merry go round- Debbie Groot
week two, MDF house- Tricia Collins
week three, small houses/church- Debbie Wyatt
congratulations to you lovely ladies i hope you fun playing with your lovely Imagine If  products.

Happy Craftin

Little farm!

Hello and welcome to our third Blog hop, I'm loving these blog hops they are so much fun, I get to hop along and see what everyone else has been up to, and this week the difference in our houses is amazing. We all got a set of 3 chipboard houses and a church, as you can see in the photo i made a farm scene, the first thing i  made was my little outhouse and i loved it, so then decided i would make more run down buildings,I joined my third house with my church to make my barn, it looks like a run down little barn has been added onto a few years later, the tree, fence and animals are  all from Imagine If and just complete my farm yard.
So the start of this weeks hop starts at Imagine If, and you have another chance to win some amazing chipboard products, this week you can win your own pack of houses and a church and we would love to see what you make. the next stop on the hop after me is Beth and she has made the cutest bird houses, remember to leave more lovely comments on everyone's blog and go into draw for your own houses, they are a lot of fun.

Little cottage

Woo Hoo, another blog hop for Imagine If with all the lovely design team, the starting point is Imagine If for those who want to start at the beginning. This weeks blog hop is all about our little house's and are they cute or what? Tash has made the cutest little shabby chic house you could see little fairies living in it, I have made mine so I can open my roof .

So I can use it to hide my secret stash......

or I can pop a flameless tea light in so it looks all warm and cosy and someone small lives in it.

Well that's my little cottage, to carry on you way through the blog hop next stop is Beth and her adorable Artists cottage, and remember Jo is running another chance for you to win some beautiful chipboard embellishments and house quotes, all you have to do is leave a lovely comment on all the design teams blogs on you way through the blog hop, so good luck, happy hopping!

ATB- love them!!!!

Good afternoon, how are we all today? I have been making some ATB's (artist trading blocks) and I'm in love, I really love how you can do anything and you have six sides to decorate, you can really let your imagination go on these.

I really like the metal look using plumbers tape over cardstock with die cuts and mesh tape under it, I have then painted it with black acrylic, wiped most of the black off and then used copper acrylic to high light some, the feet I made using air hardening clay painted back.
