I have been having an amazing time playing, learning and generally collecting and loving the fluff!
Below I will show off some of my recent makes and I warn you there might be quiet a few! This is not replacing my Paper Crafting, and I do hope I don't loose too many likers, but hey, I might gain a few too.
Anyone want to get into Needle Felting I would Highly recommend a company called The Makerss at www.themakerss.co.uk Their range of Wool and accessories are fabulous, they are friendly and fast. I only share this information as when you start a new hobby it can be hard to know where to start, and yes you make the wrong choices along the way, but I truely think with The Makerss you will miss this out and just get the best.
Type in CAZ10 for a super duper 10% off, this is my own "Friends of Caz" code, how lucky am I? :)
Its been a long time! I apologise for that, I have been busy and making the card for work, I have been needle felting and making Pop up cards for my classes coming up at Crafts U Love but just not posted on here.
Whilst my time with the Karen Burniston Design team has ended, I am still part of the Paper Pros team, which is a group of crafters who met on the Karen Burniston DT, we love her designs, and whilst using her dies as a starter point, we are of course allowed to add in anything we want as its a "Just for Fun" challenge.
That said, I did in fact only use Karen's new collection for this card. The theme was HALLOWEEN and I was dying to play with the new designs.

Today I am back with another card from demo. The boys have stolen the mouse off the PC so trying to post this post from my phone. So I'll keep it short and cross my fingers it actually works.
On the front I made use of the flags that come with the twist panel set and added wording from the words set, keeping the front simple as a leaf into the main display on the inside.
Inside I used the adorable animals and also so of the birthday charms and the cupcake too.
Apologies its short and not linking directly, I'll have to sort a mouse out soon.

This first card shows off the Charm Accordion Die, and this card has been made with a single base cut to create the main card. It makes the most adorable small card, which you can add further pages to to create much longer ones.

Paper Pros challenges are a group of crafty friends, (formerly Karen Burniston's Design Team) who decided that even though we disbanded the old Design Team we wanted to challenge each other and to get creating. They are no pressure, join in if you want to, and whilst I do try and join in, last month with Caiden leaving primary school it was just too hard so I missed out.
Here is my card for this month and I am using the Katherine Label Pop up die for the card and the MFT Sow Much Cuteness stamp set.

Over next week I will share on here the cards I have made but for now a little snippet of cards.

I am back with another Paper Pros Challenge and this month Shelly chose "Masculine Birthday Cards ".
Of course I am still excited to be playing with the KB Riley Dies that I purchased the other month and slowly but surely ticking off all the dies.

I am back again with another one of the NEW Karen Burniston dies. Could not wait to play with another one.
This time I have used the Cupcake Pop Up to create a card for my son Caiden who is 11 next week. He is 11 (how the heck that happen) on Thursday but he is on School Journey and will be away from home :( We are celebrating his birthday early this Sunday so I needed to get a card done sooner rather than later.
Caiden loves cakes! (who doesn't) so I had to think for just a nano second to which die set I would use. Karen Burniston Cupcake Pop Up from Crafts U Love in the UK or www.Karenburniston.com for America.

I have loved Karen's dies for many years as she has transitioned from Sizzix to Elizabeth Craft Designs and I think her dies just get better and better. So much hard work and thought has gone into these designs and its not just that, she is not one to create and die and leave you figuring how on earth to make it, oh no. There are videos for all of her interactive dies so you can see exactly how to make it. I have lost count of the dies I have purchased elsewhere that contain next to NO instructions and a video that although punchy and fun to look at you have to rewind umpteen times to watch the main instruction again again.

Why the sale you ask? I am not giving up stamping, oh no, its my blood! But I do have hundreds and hundreds of stamps that I have collected in over 25 years. That is a heck of a lot of stamps that have not seen the light of day for many moons. I want to share the love for Rubber Stamping by giving the buyers some awesome bargains and then use the pennies for garden improvements, more craft stash and Needle Felting stash too!
Why are car boot? Sadly I do not have the time to list all this stuff on Ebay. It take mega time to make very little money what with paypal & Ebay fees. Also lost in post items means I lose out twice, I lose my items and I have to refund the money :( By having a car boot people can come along, choose a stamp, pay and go away with some mega bargains. I can also have by appointment people come along to look at them here in Redhill, Surrey.
Car Boot is at Rusper near Horsham. I decided that even though this is quite far away from me it makes it more central to Crawley, Horsham and other places. Just over half hour drive from where I live. Also it is not a crazy early boot sale, they let the sellers set up without people diving in their boots!!
The details of the sale are HERE YOU MUST CHECK on the morning that the sale is on that it is actually going ahead. It is in an open field so it is weather dependent.
I have flowers, animals, words, you name it! I will probably be doing a few of these as I cant see my little car taking all that I have to sell so I will post further dates.
Hope to see you there!
