Just a little note ...

Hope you are all staying safe and warm during this awful weather.  We are supposed to be visiting the furniture show up at the NEC on Sunday.  We check the weather reports daily in the hope that the snow is going to miss us but I think that it is looking more unlikely.    

If you are planning to visit us on Friday or Saturday of this week it might be best to phone or e-mail first just to make sure that the shop is open!

If you are lucky enough to be inside crafting by the fire then here is a card made with spellbinders dies for you to have a go at...

The aperture was created using the classic-scalloped circle die set. I used the largest die in the set to create the cut for the  Lilybee orange spotty paper and the next size down for the actual aperture in the card.

 The flowers were created using the Rose Creations set.  To make one flower cut out 5 rose shapes of increasing size,  ink a little around the edges with a beige ink pad and attach together with a gemstone brad.  You may need to twist the flowers so that the petals are not all sitting over the top of one another.  Once you are happy with the position of the petals, pinch the ends of each petal to create dimension.

Here is a view of the card open so that you can see the aperture.  


I am thinking of adding videos to the projects that I post.  Would you like to see a video tutorial for the projects as well as pictures and notes here?  Leave a comment if you would like to see a little video so I know whether to give it some more thought!

Happy Crafting!
