So what with being out and about in the sunshine I haven't had much time for crafting but I did find time to try out this brilliant technique that Julie shared last week. If you visit her post at It's a Creative World here you will find her step by step tutorial showing you how to make your own photo booth style card using stamps.
I'd just bought these cute stamps by Prima and was wondering how to use them. They had a kind of wintery Christmas feel so I thought that using them with this technique would make a great Christmas card..........one down, only another - how many?? to go.
Last week saw another technique 'first'. Not in crafting but in baking.......
I made some soda bread. I was so suprised at how easy and tasty it was. I'll definitely be trying it again courtesy of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's classic recipe.
And today as the weather has turned more seasonably cooler I spent the morning tidying my craft room, a job long overdue. When you have that just been burgled look and can no longer see your desk and floor is rapidly disappearing you know it's time for a clear up.
In the great tidy up I came across my small collection of printer blocks that I bought many years ago, long before they popular. You can tell just how long ago as there are some 80's hairstyles amongst them. They are now safely housed on my 'altered' shelf along with my £2.00 wooden bargain they are standing on. It was reduced as it had lost all it's drawers and is now awaiting a bit of altering. Shame the blocks can't all fit inside.
Next to this I've sorted part of my craft book selection.....and when I'd finally got my all my canvases in one location it appears I have quite a few awaiting transformation. Ooops
I have more tidying to do and I'm not sure it will last but at least I can now see my craft desk. Think I'll just look at the tidy bit.
