2015 Calendar

Hello Friends

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas :)  I am in Scotland visiting my family it has been great. I am loving being home.  I brought some of my crafty things with me so I was playing around today with them.  I also found these calendar books at one of the craft shops so I decided to make up a wee calendar. The timing is perfect with the New Year right around the corner.

 I used one of my favourite stamp sets called Your Wings Exist. I only had my coloured pencils on hand so that is what I used. I also bought this lovely floral ribbon and  burlap from the pound shop the other day so I used them to create the background then glued it all together. 

 When 2015 arrives I hope it is a happy, healthy and creative one for you and your families.

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Then I added some pink twine to finish it off.  Now it is your turn to come and join us this month in the Craft Stamper Challenge.  There is this fabulous prize up for grabs. All of the details can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Mandi xox

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
