I used a Magnolia image and masked it with a frame stamp made for Spellbinders label 10. The vintage clock is a freebie from somewhere (sorry... memory you know).

DCD - use a poem


It's time for another challenge at Die Cut Dreams and we want you to use a poem.


I took out my distressers and Tim Holtz dies and used a quote from Martin Luther (German priest and scholar who lived in the early 1500s) that says:


“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”

My home made crop in style =)

Went to buy a chair to my craft table - it was sold out - but I can't stand going home empty handed so I went to Biltema and bought a trolley, you know the kind you can use for grocery shopping. And I bought a plastic shelf with three plastic boxes. Hubby wondered what I was doing, "it's a project" I answered and got a sigh in return =).

It's not that I'm cheap - well perhaps a little =)! Anyway, I tore away the bag thingy from the trolley and the wheels from the shelf, sewed a cover for the boxes and now I have a perfect case for going to scrap events - at a fraction of what a Crop in Style cost. Yey!

Altered bottle

This is my second contribution to the challenge weekend at Svensk Scrapbooking - an altered bottle. Using papers from Pion design and the small punch from X-cut to make the paper lace - excellent purchase!

Allsorts - show us your bears

Wow, so many great flowery creations to look at this past week on Allsorts!! Let's see if this week is as great, it's time for you to show us your bears. And up for grabs is a fab set of Spellbinders dies. You don't want to miss the chance!

This is my bear, using yellow which is not very commonly used on this site, but I keep challenging myself to keep on my toes =).

Small gift bag

I made this gift bag to participate in one of the challenges this weekend at Svensk Scrapbooking. Might be more to come before the weekend is over ;)

I used a mini-Tilda with heart, and used shrink plastic to make a charm using the same stamp. The bag is perfectly sized for a Littlest Pet shop figure and the wee one is going to a birthday party on Sunday - gosh what a coincidence ;)
