Crafters Companion - Big birthday week celebration

Well can you believe it its been a nearly a year since I joined the gang over at Crafters Companion and what a wonderful time I've had working on their design team, I can only hope it lasts a little longer.

Coming this Monday Morning as the 4-day deal, the girls and boys at CCHQ are going to be showering you with wonderful new products , embossing boards , Cd's and paper kits in celebration of their eighth birthday and on the 21st October they will be launching all these fab items on Create and Craft TV.

Here is some inspiration for you to get your 'teeth' into from the Sweet Treats Embossing Boards , a few boxes that can be created with the templates on the boards, 2 double sided boards that will enable you to make popcorn boxes, birdhouses, milk cartoons large and small, gable and  takeaway boxes . There are also embellishments decorating the templates like lips , bow-ties and labels but to name a few...

Above are pictures of an alternative way to use your birdhouse template if you so wish, My halloween bat house was made from the embossing boards and sweet treats CD. The text bubbles can be found of the Sweet Treats Cd along with papers and embellishments to compliment the embossing boards.

I think My day would be a little brighter if my milk came in cartoons like this in the mornings, and what do you think of this for a popcorn box ?? I think it makes a great gift box for anyone...

Don't forget to tune in to Create and Craft TV, next Monday 21st October and grab a birthday treat for yourself from Crafters Companion  xx

Crafters Companion Sneaky peek - Winter Faeries Poppets Collection

 Here's a quick peek at whats to come on Create and Craft TV next week ,Crafters Companion have the '4 day Deal' slot on Monday 7th at 8am and this ones a stunner . Its the Winter Faeries Poppets Collection from Christine Haworth and they are sure to fly out the door!!!!!!! ( No excuses for bad pun!!).

Here's one of the stamps from the Winter Faerie stamp set,
She is a little 'Holly Berrie faerie' and I think shes adorable.

I've colored her with my Specrum Noirs , I used TN1,TN2, FS1 and FS2 for the face and limbs, and BGR1,BG2, & BGR3 for the coat, LG3,LG4, BG2 for the skirt and leggings, EB2,3,4 for her hood and DR1 for the holly berries ..

I have glittered her wings and lantern, the outside of the image has been dusted with some Tim Holt's 'Crushed Olive' Green distressing ink (it looks a little yellow in the photos but trust me it is green) and then edged with a gold stickle pen!! the filigree circle die-cut behind her is from one of the latest dies, 'Decorative Holly Rings' from Tonic. 

 The sentiment is also from the stamp set and the snowflake was made with dies from spellbinders and Cheery lynn and decorated with little gems and gold and silver stickles glitter glue

Thanks for popping by , come back soon xx

Sheena Douglas ' A little bit oriental' stamps

Had a bit of a rubbish week last week, bad news was flooding through the door, people I love getting sick , jobs been lost and then the cat decides its going to throw a wobbler and start need regular trips to the vet (she's on the mend now but was very poorly before) so I was feeling down and a little stressed to say the less , so decided to treat myself to something nice to cheer myself up and give my mind something else to focus on. Good old fashion retail therapy works for me every-time!!

 Wasn't long before I found these fabulous 'A little bit oriental' stamps from the Sheena Douglas range at a bargain price so snapped them up and locked myself in my craft room for the afternoon...

  Here's my first creation from the set, when I get some free time I hope to do more, I choose this one first as the koi carp as in Japan it is supposed to represent 'Hope, courage and love' and we could all do with a little of that now and again.
