Busy Tuesday..

I follow , with total amazement and awe Maddy's blog....Mad Imaginations.....some of her creations on there are fantastic and make me lost for words which doesn't happen often,I can tell you......anyway after being inspired by Maddy, I decided to have a go.....I found an old shower gel box, took it apart, cut the top off, covered it and put the box back together.....I then added some bits and pieces and made myself a stamped images box.....to keep all my images together...then I covered some more things......
Thankyou Maddy for the inspiration...



I got this old tube from work, it had a poster in it.....a bit of fancy paper and some stickers and I have a paintbrush holder....


This used to be a coaster box but has now been turned into an atc box, just the right size to keep atcs in......I covered the box with paper, lid and bottom, added a ribbon to the lid, some flowers, a butterfly and a tag.....very handy...




Lastly, I covered a little pot with some sticky ribbon and put a sticky flower on the top, I filled it with some diecut flowers....very dinky..

I was on a bit of a roll yesterday, I made a batch of atcs ready to send out to friends, you never know when you are going to need one...so I decided to make some for the occasion..

The first two are Jemima Puddleduck and I think its a red admiral butterfly but I could be wrong...

These are a couple of images that were sent to me, just begging to be used...


A couple of Tildas, I can't get enough of these stamps, they are brilliant...so easy to use...







Finally, I also made some toppers for cards or scrapbooking, whichever takes my fancy.....I took a coloured stamped image, wrapped thread around it , placed on another piece of card and added a button..

ATC Book...

This is what I have been doing all day today..I made a book to display all the gorgeous atcs I have been sent.....I covered a childs scrapbook with wrapping paper and decorated it with all my bits and pieces....I made all the little envelopes to hold the atcs and decorated the pages....and I still have plenty of room more...hint hint!!!
Now all I have to do is make some more for all the cards and tags I have got......phew!!!




























This is a bag charm I made for a challenge on the cb forum, two colour combination....greens and oranges..

Jewellery Today!!!

Today I made this bracelet for Tiggertastics new jewellery challenge blog, I have used silver chain with a lobster clasp, the beads are threaded onto headpins and attached to the chain....I have used blues, whites and greens in the beads, there are a few green leaves in there somewhere but you can't really see them that well in the photo...






A pair of purple earrings I made today for the cb swap, I think the colour was purple I might have to check...lol..

New year mojo is off and running...

Now the new year is well and truly underway, my crafting mojo has returned with a vengence....I have so many ideas and themes running through my head at the moment I have taken to carrying my book around with me to jot them all down....now just to find the time to fit it all in...lol..
This is my entry for the exotic challenge on the cb forum, as usual I have gone for the exotic oriental theme...I love anything oriental...the papers and images you can get now are amazing and I can't get enough of them..






My entry for the new year challenge on the cb forum, quite pink for me....




This is my entry for the cb card swap, this month the theme is pinks, purples and silver......more butterflies, I'm afraid....feeling very girly at the moment...






These are my atcs for the cb swap, this month the theme is fantasy, so I decided to do flower fairies...







The theme for the bookmark swap on the cb forum this month is monochrome and this is my effort...not really happy with these so I might have to redo them..




These are my tag swaps for the cb forum, the theme this month is butterflies which I have made out of vellum, embossed and pricked...
