Birdhouse Card

Another idea for the birdhouse stamps - you don't just need to make birdhouses - you can also use the front section to create a fab card too! Just trim the roof pieces down and if you create a flap you can use this to stick behind the birdhouse front. I've also accented this with the gorgeous cosmic shimmer ribbon too!

Busy Times!

Well it's been a busy weekend with the Oriental workshop on Saturday and a craft fair today and still Diss club night tomorrow to go!

Today I thought I would share the picture of the jewellery set I made with a mix of seed beads, crystal rondell beads and glass pearls - all in shades of blue. These jewellery sets are easy to make and are fabulous Christmas presents too! There are lots of beads to choose from on the website and I'm working on putting the latest delivery of beads online too!.. so more to come!

happy crafting

Finally... I've found the time to put up the pictures of the birdhouses!. Those of you who visited me at Bury St Edmunds saw me demonstrating with these. They are created using the birdhouse stamps from UMount and make lovely tree decorations. You can also convert them to a gift box and I thought they would also make lovely place names for the Christmas table - the roof space is ideal for putting your guests names onto! Finally why not go non christmas with the Eco-green acrylic paints. Simply stamp the design onto card, cut and score all your pieces then decorate the other side - you are then free to create any design you wish!
There are two designs available - poinsettia and holly
