Crafts Beautiful & Wahooooo!

January 5, 2012 at 9:51 pm 11 comments

Hey! Thought you might like a look at one of the projects in the February Issue of Crafts Beautiful out now. The rest of the baby  projects are in there along with a Glamorous gardening set using some gorgeous Authentique papers.  This little box is a variation on a 2,4,6,8 box and using some sponging with a freehand drawn cloud used as a template. The stamp set is a SU! one.

The Wahooooo! bit is that the Paper crafters Library have invited me and 3 other girls to be their first Design Team for a couple of months. I got the email inviting me yesterday on my Birthday- a pretty fab extra present! The site is a wealth of tutorials and inspiration and our job is to add a few more projects and tutorials that will hopefully inspire other crafters.

The other members of the team are..

Kristin Wilson

Michelle Weksler

Ezlie Perez

Go and check their lovely blogs out. I love that we’re all different with our own styles. Apart from being really excited and pretty honoured that Andrea, Sophia and the Paper Crafters Team have allowed me onto the team, I’ve been stunned by the amount of visitors, comments and messages from people. Crafters are really wonderful people!! My blog has nearly gone into meltdown! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and signing up to receive updates. I only hope that I can produce projects that inspire you!

I’ve been busy trying to clear away all the Christmas decorations, and start to reorganise myself. I’m not doing a particularly successful job when after putting everything away- actually labelling the boxes properly this year, shoving them into the loft on a stepladder that I oh-so-nearly-fell-off, screwing the door hatch back on (yes, I know!!), that I went downstairs and discovered the stable complete with knitted nativity figures still on the piano. It’s so big, I wonder how I missed it. The question now is how long will it take before I become too fed up, embarrassed, or oblivious to the fact it’s still there!! Ah well, I guess I’ve left the most important deccies out!

I have to sign off quickly- I’m in the  middle of a really challenging assignment. I like being stretched but my brain is resisting it. Kinda wished I’d got a few more brain cells for my Birthday!!

See you when I can tear myself away from the Bleak House DVD’s I got for Christmas xx

    Ha…My tree got left up the whole year last year. It was new and I didn’t like the color of the cool white lights. We were going to find multi-color lights and trade the out. Then I saw an upright tree storage bag that was perfect for the tree. I knew it wasn’t going back in the orginal box. But the bad was pricey, so I thought…wait till they put it on clearance. It never did and then half the year had passed, so why put it away when it’s closer to time to pull it out again. LOL I did take all the ornaments off and pack them away. I wish I had left them on…there wouldn’t have been so much to do this year. LOL

    I love this little Baby card. Congrats on being picked for the PCL team. Can’t wait to see what’s in store!!!

      Glad I’m not alone- although you had planned to leave the tree that way- mine was complete blondeness!!! Thanks for stopping by! x

        LOL Not so sure it was planned that way…but that’s how it happened. I just ordered the storage bag. It is $20.00 more than last year now AND on backorder!!! ACK!!! I should have bought it last year. I hope it isn’t up half the year again. I am also a blonde, but not using that as an excuse, this time. LOL

    Happy New Yr and ‘Well done on joining the PCL team’ – you are very creative. Will you be holding any crafty/stamping days this yr? Could do with some New Inspiration for 2012.

      The Answer is yes- I’m planning them all very soon. Any good ideas and good days to have workshops? x
