Thankyou for popping by again and I know I say it every Saturday but gosh it has been a busy week again!
I have had a great week at Create and Craft towers launching the new Imperial Gold Dies - all I can say is WOW! what amazing results you get with them and it has been a pleasure to demonstrate them to everyone. The blockbuster has been flying out of the studio and I am back next week (Thursday) for a few more shows to give you a few more ideas. We have also had Valentine's Day this week but unfortunately for the first time in 30 years of being together Mark and I couldn't celebrate with a meal out as we were at the studio. I am sure that we will be able to treat ourselves another day at least we were there together even though we were working. I hope that you all enjoyed your romantic day and made time for yourselves.
This weeks challenge has been set by our fabulous Brenda and she has chosen .......
THINGS WITH WINGS
I have gone with the most obvious and that is Butterflies but I have chosen to show you a different project other than a card
This is a shadow box frame that I had the pleasure of decorating for a recent Crafty Notions show on C and C - as you know I really love to play around with paints and dimensional projects so this was right up my street. The frame and the vine are Twiddlybitz and I have used Crafty Notions Acrylic paints to cover them. I would highly recommend these paints as the colour is so strong and it only takes one coat to cover projects like this.
A have used the frame with a 12 x 12 scrapbook page which (as usual) doesn't show up too well but it is glittered and embossed beautifully. I have also embellished the frame work with stella flash which is tiny snips of Angelica film. The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn and the tiny roses are a Marianne design.
I hope that you like my offering. I am heading up to Sheffield as you are reading this to visit Jean and the gang at Busy Bee Crafts at Beighton Nr Sheffield. We are having a dabble day and it is always a fabulous day. From Sheffield I am heading for Birmingham to attend the Trade Fair at the NEC. This is held annually and it is where retailers get to buy all of their goodies for the following year. It is always a great show with lots to see and demos and workshops to enjoy too. I will take the camera and pop some photographs on the blog of some of the exciting new products and the great demonstrators that I bump into.
I will also pop some more samples on of the new Spellbinders over the next week so keep popping by and let me know what you think to them.
Thankyou again for popping in, enjoy a lovely weekend whatever you are doing and please leave a comment if you have a few minutes to spare.
Also pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a look at the gorgeous work from the Design Team.
Bye for now
