Joel Tag (RRP-002)


Woohooo, my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder arrived yesterday, and I got a chance to play with it today.

I’ve had a layered/stitched tag kicking around on my desk for bloomin’ ages, and so I wizzed it through with the folder, what a difference it makes – how have I lived without one all this time!

The Victorians have landed

Just a quick picture of Lydia dressed as a Victorian Farmer’s child as part of her Year 6 History this year.

Apparently, it was like stepping back in time when she was dropped off for School, with all manner of different Victorian costumes.

…… and now I have those elusive bits

at least I will have in the next few days. Thanks to my stash emergency email to Caz, I managed to find not only the Momento Dye Ink in, but also the coveted Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Thanks hun, you always come up with the goods!

In fact, I also got the Rich Cocoa Momento as well as the Tuxedo Black from them, Charmed Crafts.  I can’t wait to try them out.  The Palette Noir works quite well, but the only bugbear I have with it, is the fact that like most Palette ink pads it tends to be on the dry side.  I’m a juicy kinda gal, if you know what I mean!

Look what I got, and it’s just as yummy in real life


as I have imagined it in my fluffy brain – a scrummy Tim Holtz stamp file.  I popped over to Scrapbook Sisters yesterday, and as it looked lonely on the shelf by itself I had to bring it down.  They had lots more, but sold out really quickly.

The only tiny bit of disappointment is that it doesn’t have a handle on the spine, but truthfully most of the time that won’t matter one jot.  It came with 5 of the stamp storage sheets inside, but a got an extra pack.  As this particicular beauty is being used for my Toodles & Binks stamps, and no others will be allowed to creep in.

The way I justified it to myself was that I can’t tout the T&B wares around retail shops without something smart to show them off now can I?

I also picked up some lovely pearls, a cuttlebug embossing folder (disappointingly not the Swiss Dots one that I covet), some Bazzill Just the Edge Cardtock Strips in bright yellow, a small 7g’s tag book, and a large acrylic Tag Book book, oh and a Papercrafts mag from the States.  I really just went looking for Momento ink, but you know what it’s like!

I shall have to order the Momento on line and also get myself that Swiss Dots embossing folders – for that I can blame Adele, she uses hers to such effect, that I want one.

Help me decide, do I need one of these lil’ babies

I’ve been seeing a lot of stiching around again recently, and whilst I have a nice large sewing machine upstairs in the cupboard, that’s the problem, it’s large and heavy.  Do I need one of the lil’ darlings for my birthday?

My first Celeste Card and Ismaki Challenge #35


sorry, it’s had to be photographed flat, as the Pearlidoodles are still drying.

It’s the first time that I’ve had a chance to take part in Isa’s Ismaki Challenges.
