oh my goodness, it just looks really messy at the moment – I need to have a tidy, but would just like to finish the current project I am working on first I think.
I didn’t get much time to work on my current project last night (apart from cutting the front cover and painting the edge of the tag book), but the paint should be dry this afternoon when I can hopefully get a bit more done, after my meeting with the lovely Alan ………………..
ahhhh yessssssss …………….. Alan ……………… it will kill me not to say any more about this for the time being, truly it will!!
to celebrate their new blog, which has moved over to:
All you need to do is to post on your blog, and then fill in the Mr Linky Widget of the T&B blog with the permalink to that post, and then leave a comment about your most recent craft purchase – simple.
they are giving away an Adam (RRP-007), Zoomz and one of the lovely new Stampendous Thin stamp storage files.
So hop over to the blog and take part, even if you are not successful it will mean that you’ll be entered into the “I want it all” draw on 31st December where you stand the chance of winning the whole of the T&B range issued by that date – you have to be in it to win it as the saying goes!
I have just moved all but one of the T&B stamps into one of Stampendous Thin units this morning, and I will still have room for some more small things in there. T&B have a video demonstration of the blog of this product, and it is fabbilicious.
as I might of mentioned, I’ve move the Adam tag I made on a bit last night, and have made box with it using my Scor-pal and a piece of 12×12 card. I didn’t write it down, but I think I scored at 1 and 11, and 5.5 and 6.5″, and then flipped it around, and scored and 1 and 11″ again – which has essentially given me a large rectangular box.
Then I mounted the image on some Daisy D Christmas paper, which I have had for several years unused.
Then just addded QK snoflakes in Limeade Sugarcoated, with red dots and leaf green pearlidoodles, and red snowflakes with Limeade centres and red pearlidoodles. Green gingham ribbon all around the middle of the box, and a limeade circle with red ribbon tied through to indicate the opening.
It did take a bit of making because of all the cutting out of snowflakes, and I’ve all but depleated by stock of silicone glue too … which is tragic as I still have tons of 3-ding to do. I need to find an emergency supply from somewhere, and am hoping that Lorimers or Sussext Stats will have some in Sevenoaks … we are so desparately short of a decent craft shop here now.
Sorry for the awful photos, the light levels are terrible this time of year.
By the way, I found out what my extra birthday pressie was – yay, the Sparks new album (OMG, that takes me back decades and makes me feel really old!). Actually, they look younger on the cover than I rember them all those years ago, and it’s a fantastic piece of work, called “Exotic Creatures of the Deep”, and has a really rock opera feel. The individual tracks are also make great listening – my particular favourite is (She Got Me) Pregnant.
I need to use this stamp, but had to come up with some kind of festive twist with it.
Actually, I’ve moved things on again since taking this, and have made a rectangular box to place a goat in (yes, a goat ….. well, a cyber goat anyway from Oxfam) – I thought I’d put a little label that says “care: contents contain nuts” on it too. I am currently in the process of cutting out a massive amount of Limeade Snowflakes and circle middles to go all around the edge. As well as the cyber goat there will be an Adam stamp (mounted on kling) and some liquer choccies.
