Photo Frame Fridge Magnet

I stumbled upon a pack for four Magent Photo Frames in WHSmith a couple of weeks ago. They were reduced to £2.49 for 4!

The frames measure 2.5" x 2.5" and take 2" photos. The frames themselves are made from a flexible firm rubber material.

On Thursdays I go along to a Time Out group, where we do all sorts of things, mostly crafty, but literally, anything goes. I take my 2 year old (now 3 year old as of yesterday) along with me and he loves it, and loves the Lady, Trudi who runs the class. The class is about to end for the summer (it follows school terms) and re-starts in September, But my now 3 year old, is off to Nursery and so wont be able to come along any more. He wanted to make a little gift for Trudi and this is what he and I came up with

We applied gold mixative alcohol ink to the frame, and curled some flowers I had in my stash, and made some pins from wire stems and purple beads. I added some gold Nail gems (bought from Ebay years ago to use on my nails!) and printed off a Name meaning.

I made a box using Laura Ashley cardstock, added purple ribbon and some pins, while my Son wrote "Trudi" on the label, all by himself!! (I wrote it into a scrap first, so he could copy)

I won a Coppernob Crease Mouse!

Helen over at Its All Fiddle Fart offered a few Coppernob Crease Mouse for blog candy and I was lucky enough to be picked out of the Teapot!

It arrived in my post box yesterday and I had a good play with it and its fab!
I have (had, as I will pass it on to my mum) a bone folder that came free with a craft magazine about 10 years ago, that I used to creasing my card but it just did not cut it and it was shoved in a box in my craft cupboard somewhere. I didnt get what the fuss was about for crease tools.
Until yesterday! The Coppernob crease mouse is very strong and creased my cards amazingly well, and with such ease. One swipe gave perfect results.
Now I'm hooked! I love it and will use it everytime something needs creasing,
I havnt used it with my Hougie board yet, or with rub ons yet, I'm really hoping it will fit the grooves of the board and im positive it will make easy work of rub ons!

18th Birthday Card using Making Memories slice

For this card, I cannot accept any credit. It was made entirely by my Boys age 7 and 5.
They made it for their Uncle using my Making Memories slice.

All the words, leters and numbers were cut from vinyl and I'm not completely sure which design cards they used, but its from any of these: Basic Elements, Basic Shapes 2 or Remember This.

The paper is from Paperchase and it is like a fabric with embossed patterns over and has an irridescent shimmer to it. (its very hard to catch on photo)

Book easel card

I'm really enjoying Easel cards at the moment and what better than a Book Easel card!
The papers I used are We R Memory Keepers, inked with vintage photo distress ink. The flower is also a Papermania white paper flower, inked with vintage photo distress ink.
The border on the bas is punched using a Martha Stewart scallop punch.
It needs a little "something else" but I cant quite put my finger on what..

My Slice Bag

My new slice cutter needs a nice cosy home, but no way am I prepared to pay approximately £50 for a storage bag! I have only ever once spent that on a designer handbag for myself!

So I set out to find a nice bag and I found this fab bag in the first shop I went to, and it was the first bag I spotted. In Primark and it was very, very expensive at £3!

I also needed somewhere to store my Design cards and refence cards. Again I refused to pay almost £20 for a storage folder (mainly because I remember seeing them in Hobbycraft at Christmas for £2.99 but little did I realise 6 months later I would be wanting one!)
I have a few mobile phone/MP3 player cases kicking around that I've bought from Poundland, and lo and behold, my cards in their cases and the refence cards fit perfectly with space for more! (I have 4 design cards so far)

 Everything fits inside here, with plenty of space for more! I have my 6" cutting mat, the slice, the power cord, spatula, in the zip compartment are the spare blades, blade tool and adjuster tool. Also is a pouch that holds all me design cards and refence cards.
 That purple case holds my Design cards and refence cards
 My pouch with design cards and reference cards.
 You can see my blade tool poking out the little pocket in this pouch, these are no longer in here, I moved them into the main bag.
