How excited am I!
It has been one of my secret dreams to join this team. In fact recently many of my crafting dreams have come true, which is just amazing.
I just hope I can do Anice and the team justice!
I am less proud to say I haven't managed my Salt layout for this week yet. It is on it's way and it is rather amusing that it is on (lack of ) self control as if I had pulled my finger out and shown some self control it might be ready to roll now.
I have managed the DCM dare for today (can do a card quicker than a layout see)
'Tis the Season.......to Recycle!
We'd like you to do your bit for the planet and make a card using some recycled items.Well although I am Mrs Untidy 1997, I do like to keep on top of things over Christmas. especially with so many dogs around. So all the recycling was gone before the new year. Havering Council let you recycle loads of stuff which is good. Until you remember you neeeed it for a dare. the cards though only came down this week and I managed to rescue them. trouble is with them that we staple them together to hang on the walls ( I know, how fancy are we) so I could only use certain areas of cards. which is why there is not a huge amount of recycling actually on my card.
the original card had 5 presents on it. I cut them down, and down and then decided to turn one of them into a vase!
Here are the details:
Card made with American Crafts cardstock run through the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder (D'vine. I ask you). AC cardstock is American sized which means it fits better into the folders. the cardstock is actually already embossed but I decided to do my own on top.
White card: from the scrap pile cut with nestability die
Glitter card - Doodlebug. This. Is. Lush. expect to see every last scrap of the pack used up on a card near you.
Three Prima flowers and two Auntie Sarah's Bloomers with tiny Anitas gems in the centre. Anita's have brought out gemstone wheels and they are a great idea as you can store lots of bling pretty easily. They are fiddly to stick on but look cute!
Foam alphabet stickers covered in Glitter glue
Sadly, I mangled all the other presents so there won't be any more vases!
And here are the girls
