More Sneaky peeks from Brambly Hedge - Crafters Companion

 Welcome back and time to look again at what's in store on Friday's Pick of the week' show over at Create and Craft TV , The girls and boys at  Crafters Companion have bought you this fantastic range of stamps and a Cd Rom of these wonderful little woodland creatures that live deep down  in BRAMBLY HEDGE.....

Here's another couple of projects I made from the fabulous Brambly Hedge CD Rom, this time we are celebrating Summer.

 The first is an A5 card I made the backing paper with white card using the Argyle embossing folder from Embossalicious and then inking with some Tim Holts 'Vintage Photo' distressing ink and a couple of dies from spellbinder and Cheery lynn, all mounted on brown Core'dinations card.

  Next is a Desk Tidy made from a little red felt bag (£1.99) from the Craft barn and I decorated it with an image from the CD, printed out on Iron on fabric transfer paper from Crafter's Companion and some lace, paper flowers and a enamel butterfly.

This was so easy to make , just print out your image and iron on to some clean cotton material, I used a piece from a cotton pillow case , edged with some lace and stick onto your felt bag with your tacky glue , I used a glue gun to stick on the flowers, leaves and butterfly purely because they were a little heavier and I want them to stay put!!

 Dont forget whenever you are using iron on transfer paper always follow the instructions on the packet and remember when you iron on your picture it will come out as a mirror image facing the reverse way. So if you want it to look the same as on the CD you will need to 'flip' the picture in a graphics programme first ( I used Serif) and then print out . Don't worry if you don't know how to do this, nine times out of ten it doesn't matter unless you are printing out text and then your words will come out back to front!!

Ideal if you want to move from room to garden to do a bit of crafting  in the sunshine while it lasts!!As you can see it holds all your goodies nice and tidy and there is plenty of room left for more, it could hold your wool ,knitting needles or sewing kit as well . or if you didn't fancy using it for any of those you could simply put your sandwiches in it for work!!

Don't forget to watch the show , there will also be some beautiful Brambly Hedge Hunkydory paper kits to go with this range and they are to die for!!
