Card making

Today I am trying to finish all my card orders. Here is a peek at one of them. I love the Prima dolls & thought it would be great as a Niece card for a teenager.
I can sometimes struggle with card making unless inspiration strikes quickly.
I wanted to do something other than a pop up box card ( which was really hard to back away from lol).
After making this I am now sat trying to think up some idea's for the next 5 cards I need to make by friday!
I think I need a class in card making lol....my brain is just not feeling the love for it.

Getting organized

After weeks (month's) of putting off sorting out my craft stuff, I have finally made a start.
     I decided to go down the "cd" route to store some of my acrylic stamps. It was a cheap solution & is working out ok. I can add an extra rack & keep expanding if (or rather when) I buy more stamps.
I would have prefered DVD cases but couldn't find clear ones anywhere.
       
I have ordered some plastic storage boxes for my 12x12 paper pads which I can label & stack ontop of my unit. I am going to attach a clear A4 sealable bag inside the lid for scraps that correspond with the pads stored in each box.....that way I will no longer have to spend ages rummaging through a big box of scrap searching for that one elusive piece of paper.

Having no craft room is a nightmare & my ever expanding supplies are in chaos, so my mission next week is to get as organized as possible before I need to start on new projects.

Still lots to do but I am getting there. Can't to get it finished & get crafting!

It's all about the Boys!

Hello everyone who takes the time to check out this blog! Please feel to subscribe & leave comments.
 Lately I have been working on a few bits for "Boys".....I find it really hard to find stuff the boys will like, as I always end up buying computer games & lego etc or duplicating a prezzie & feeling bad. So I decided to make some comic covered letters for the "MARVEL" & Scooby obsessed boys in my life & not just the young ones LOL.

These letters are for Nicola's son, I still have to finish the Iron man letter but thought I would share anyway. We started them on Saturday (the Batman is all Nics work), but we got side tracked by a trip to the pub, so I brought them home to finish off.
.
I want to do a "Dr Who", for my friends son for his Birthday as he absolutely loves every thing to do with Dr Who, & I think it would look cool. I also want to do a "POW" for my nephew using the MARVEL comics again, but I might do a canvas or shadow box frame for that I haven't quite decided yet.
Great fun to do as I did find myself sitting & reading the comics before cutting them up LOL.
