Felt Bracelet: Cornish Waters

This is the last bracelet I have to show you this time round.

This is nice muted shades of blues and whites. It is meant to represent the waters off Cornwall. I like this because I love blues.

This would be great to wear on a trip to a seaside resort. Perfect for the Hampton's :)

Felt Bracelet: Jacob Wool

This is the only felt I made using Jacob wool. The texture is much coarser and as a result I found it quite difficult to work with. I am not as satisfied with the results but I jazzed it up a bit with a cute feather charm.

Anyway this colour is known as humbug because it is meant to look like mint humbug sweets.


Felt Bracelet: Neutrals

This is my next installment of felty goodness. I am nearing the end of my goodies and normal service will return and card making will be back. Fingers crossed.

This has a nice neutral colour scheme which would be good for work or play!

Take Four: Tropical Sea

This is my fourth bracelet. You must be getting fed up of them by now! Hopefully not. I am loving making them at the moment. So prepare for even more lol.

This is a lovely collection of blues and turquoises. It is reminiscent of the Caribbean seas - Sigh!

Another favourite. :)


Take Three: Peacock

This is one of my favourites. I love the mix of colours in this bracelet. It is fun, fresh and funky. I have shown a few friends and the response has been positive. Woo hoo.

This is my peacock bracelet. This is the first one I made!

Take Two: Felt

This is my second offering from my many bracelets. This is my rainbow inspired colours. I have tried to coordinate the charms on the clasp to match the mood. It felt summery so I used a flower charm.

These will eventually be going up on my folksy site so just give me a shout if you like any of them before I put them on.

I have been making alot of felt beads recently and I sat one night and made them into cute bracelets.

I am pretty happy with how they have turned out. This is the first bracelet but I warn you I made a whole bunch of them. You have been warned lol.

Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

I love the colour combination. This is definitely one I would not use but I think it works really well together. I had a bit of a struggle putting the card together but it is finished and is semi ok!

Make It Monday Edger Dies

I am making this project right at the wire again. I resolve to make my project quicker for the next Make it Monday.

Anyway in my head I had an image of a rainbow peeking out of the pocket. So I started with my rainbow. I coloured it in and put some glittered clouds on the front and also one on the back to use as a tag.

I made the pocket using my one and only edger die. I then stamped some polka dots - just cause I felt like it! No other reason lol.

On the background of the card I used the cloud stamp and used a rock n roll effect so the clouds were not solid. I am pleased with how the background came out.

Anyway its a very simple card. I hope you like it.


Felt Beads My first attempt

I tried my hand at making felt beads during the week. They took me a bit of time to make them but I am pleased with the result. They are not perfect but I think that is the beauty of them.

I will try and make them into a bracelet. This will be posted as soon as I manage it.

Make it Monday Polaroid

I am very late making and uploading this card. It has been a beautiful few days. Very warm and sunny - unusual in Scotland lol. It has been glorious so I have not had the chance to do this weeks Make it Monday.

So last thing Sunday night I decided I need to rectify this. I tried the technique with craft cardstock but did not like the finish. The i decided I wanted to use colour and so I settled on Spring Moss. I love this colour.

I struggled for a stamp set but thought it would be cute to use the tree from falling leaves because I could use the apple. I also thought it would be cute to use my new apple stamp to make a background with.

I am happy with the results. Its not my usual style but it is still ok. I love the Make it Monday cause it gives us the chance to learn new skills.

Have a fab day

Notebook for Lauren

Lauren is Laird's Big Sister. She is just made to be a big sister. She is bright, funny and absolutely nuts lol.

Anyway I don't like taking one child a present then not taking another anything. So I decided to make Lauren a wee pressie.

I have been making alot of notebooks recently so I decided she could get one to doodle in. I just had to use the doll image form the simply charmed cart. It is just so pretty.

The paper was echo park and I just love their paper. It is so bright and funky.

I added a tag and so purple saddle stitch ribbon.

I also made a little something to go with it which I will post tomorrow.

Big Hugs
