Pootler’s Design Team – Week 2

Thank you for joining me for Week 2 of the Pootler’s Design Team Challenge.  I’m having so much fun playing with the Crafting Forever stamp set, I have finished my 4 projects for the challenge and jotted down several more ideas in my notebook that I’m hoping to make in the next few months.

If you follow my blog you will know that I love colouring, I tend to spend a few days each week colouring stamped images with either my watercolour pencils or alcohol markers.  It helps to relieve stress which lessens my M.E. pain.

 

 

Whenever I go away I always take my water colour pencils with me, I love my alcohol markers but they are too bulky to take.  I have a ‘Watercolour To Go Kit’ which is a Clear Mount Stamp Case that holds all my Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils, a Blender pen, an Aqua Painter and a pencil sharpener. Continue Reading →

OnStage Solihull Swaps – Ribbon Scissor Charms

Last weekend Hubby and I went to Solihull for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which is held twice a year.  Demonstrators who attend get a copy of the upcoming catalogue and play with some of the new products.

For the event I made 50+ swaps and I got to swap and chat with lots of demonstrators. I came home with a bag full of swaps that I can use for inspiration.

 

For my swaps I made Ribbon Scissor charms with the Shrinkles Shrink Art sheets, these are great fun to play with.  They reminded me of when I was at school and I used to put crisp packets in the oven to shrink them and make key rings and badges with them.  Did you do that too?
