Sheena's Saturday Special

Sheena's back on our screens this Saturday at 3pm with several sets of brand new stamps. They are very useful stamps as you will see, a must have. Below is a sample I made using H2o's, acetate and some black card.

Looking forward to a busy few weeks, shows include Harrogate with Glitzcraft, NEC with Hougie, Thetford with Hougie again and then Excel with Cardio.
At the moment I'm at Stephanie's with Nancy and the team working hard on a several new projects the first to be seen at the weekend.
Friday I leave for the Harrogate show, haven't been there few a while and I'm really looking forward to it.
Time for bed so Happy Crafting for now.

Ornate Handbag

Along with the launch of the Tattered Lace Lavish Blooms there was a few other dies, the handbag on the above card was one of them.
I used papers from a Lili of the Valley pad, yes I did buy all the new ones while I was at Farnborough.
The flowers were all made using just the stamen dies and the fern leaves were from the new foliage die set.

Another sample like the headband actually cut from felt, always look for a wool felt as this cuts easier and also feels nicer.
Just a short post today, more Tattered Lace tomorrow.

Lavish Blooms

Well I'm just about recovered from being at the Farnborough for the weekend and then an early start on Monday, looking after my Granddaughter.
Really enjoyed the Make It show, it always has such a great atmosphere, lovely customers, friendly staff and the catering, well no complaints there. The weather behaved to a point, at least we could bring the vans in on Thursday for set up. Only one bad point, the sweet stand which you had to pass on the way to the catering, wouldn't be right not to buy some would it. Lol
I did get a chance to have a look round in the morning before opening and of course build up my crafty stash, ribbon, felt, card stock , air dried clay etc...........
Last night was the launch of the new Tattered Lace POD, Lavish Blooms. Loved these, so many ways to use them, even stamping............ die cut the whole shapes in funky foam, then use Stick and Spray, attach to an acrylic block, apply ink , I used Distress Ink and stamp.

I've posted on Facebook the following two photos for the launch of the Lavish Blooms,

All the flowers and leaves were cut from felt using the dies , even the stamens. The headband I brought from Riverside Beads. I've lost count how many presenters including Nancy have tried this on. Who do you think looked good in it ?

This took some time to do , but what a result . The flowers were cut from a handmade paper pack a friend brought me years go. The polystyrene ring I brought from J & C Creations along with the Silver Crushed ribbon which I used to cover the ring. Thanks also to Trish from Ribbon Box for the thin silver ribbon to hang it with.
More samples to follow tomorrow.
