Boxes and Bags

Hi everyone, 

well I decided I need a little bit of crafting inspiration this morning, so I headed in over to you tube to see what I could find. Well being part of a huge team of Stampin'Up! Demonstrators here in the UK there is no shortage of very talented ladies out there. 
So headed over to Crafty Halletts you tube channel for a looksy. I find all her videos really easy to follow and a pleasure to watch, she's a very talented lady.  Click the link to her you tube HERE 
And tell her I sent you. 

So today I made the little bows she made using just punches! So easy and a very effective way to use up all your bits of scrap papers. 

Mine's not perfect as the scrap paper I used had been scored, so the bow part wasn't as round as it should be. But hey practice makes perfect! 

Another you tube channel I visited was 
Pootles papercraft, she is always coming up with new ideas for cards, boxes etc 

Today I watched her video on the framelits storage box. It's brilliant, and so easy I made three of them in less than 10 minutes after watching her. 
Click the link HERE to here you tube channel and tell her I sent you. 

And finally I went to have a look at papercraft button's you tube channel and found a cute little gift bag made using one A4 sheet of paper , just score, fold and stamp. 
Click the link to her video HERE

Well that's all for today.
Happy Crafting

First workshop done!

Hi everyone, well it's been a very windy and rainy few days here in Corby! Hope it's not been to bad where you are. 
Well I have done my first workshop, it was a very small one! Just a one on one with my lovely big sister, who I went to visit yesterday. 
We did a few make and take cards, simple ones as she hadn't stamped before and I didn't want to overwhelm her. 
The I did  a demo with the new product we have coming out on the November 1st and she loved it! So much so,she has ordered it.  Well when it comes out! 
Just a small first order but but never the less it's a order. 

Bye for know
