We love Glitz Designs Collection Kits and recently showcased them and their doodle rollers at a Midnight Madness. We used Finnley and Wild & Free two of our favourite collections. The doodle rollers are fun to use – although a little practise is required.
Well, I haven’t blogged for ages – sorry guys, too busy having fun and creating. Thought we’d best show you some of the fun we have been having with crochet. We started our Crochet workshops at Craft Haven in early November 2012 – it has been fun “getting our Granny on” (as some of our ladies call it). I couldn’t help myself and had to do a Scrapbook layout with some of my Crochet flowers. We’ve been working on heart bunting for the shop doorway too – but that’s not done yet (too distracted by other stuff). We love crocheting cotton dishcloths – they are fantastic for those of you who like things that are Eco-friendly, they are so easy to make, we made quite a few for Christmas presents.
This LO uses some Two Scoops cardstock for the background – sanded and inked. The patterned paper is from the On Trend Collection by Crate Paper and the flowers are made by ME – cotton, pattern and hooks available at our store Craft Haven. I used A TCW template – Sunburst to make the ‘rays”, then inked around the edge.
Last night – was Midnight Madness at Craft Haven. We papercrafted the evening away – and yes, by about 11:00pm it is all getting a little ‘mad’ – only in the crazy, fun, laugh till it hurts way – not the where is the straight jacket, lock me up way. We had a sketch challenge and this was my LO on display as inspiration for the sketch. I kept it pretty simple and clean as a good place to start for newbie scrappers. There is some perfect pearl mist, spritzed thru a TCW mask, but the photo doesn’t really show it up too well. I love the Cherry Lyn dies, and chicken mesh is a favourite of mine – so many different uses – here it takes on a fishing net look. Of course Washi tape is fun to work with and another fav of mine at the moment. The papers, lettering and pennants are from A Walk in the Park Collection Kit – by Echo Park.
