Creative Corner Saturday Challenge

I have struggled this week to settle down to crafting - done a bit of this and a bit of that, but completed nothing! Have now put this right by submitting this card before tomorrow's next challenge arrives.

TIP - Did you know?

I didn't until last week when I read a tip from a friend on another forum (thanks Storm), that if you are a DST user and that if you have trouble getting things positoned in the right place (like me) then......... try this. Put the tape on as usual - remove covering - run a prit stick lightly over tape, and hey presto the tape then becomes repositionable. AND, it works!


Diamond Wedding

I have recently made these two Diamond Wedding cards for two different customers but for the same celebrating couple. After many thinking hours, I did eventually manage to come up with two different designs and they liked them! What a relief!

Hi Friends

Unfortunately I have no time for crafting at the moment, but I hope to be back soon. In the meantime I'm posting a few cuttlebug cards that I made recently. Hope you like them. You can't go wrong with a cuttlebug can you! and they are so satifying to design (and easy the make, but mums the word).

Triple embossing Tip

Chrissie (Simply One of a Kind ) recently shared with us her tips on triple embossing. I have been asked how did I achieve the initial on my recent 18th BC. The was also a form of embossing - I started with the first layer of powder on a chipboard initial, heated until melted, then I added glue from a prit stick in certain places, then powder, then melted again. This can be done a third time if need to give right effect and more texture. It can also cover up any rough areas on chipboard letters that seem to be inevitable on the letters I have! But, then they were cheap! Hope you find this useful, BFN Ikki

Where's the week gone!

I cannot believe how time manages to pass by so quickly. The days just lately seem to merge - is it an age thing that I can't remember things from yesterday, and things from the past seem so clear? I have not managed to do much crafting this week because of family probs and extra bowling, and I have to say that I have missed being in my little corner. I have, however, completed a little experiment in colouring and using an image I received in a recent swap. Hope you think I'm improving . I don't know the name of the little lady, so if anyone can enlighten me, please do! BFN ikki
