About Me

Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

I'm Home!

Good Morning All and may I wish you a very Happy New Year!

We're back from the cruise which was great fun but when we got back I went down with the "dreaded lurgy" hence, no posting last week.  Please forgive me, but I felt like death warmed up!

Anyway, let's get on with a nice quick and easy project for this week.  It's a little tag I made using the Couture Creations 3 in 1 sets.

Start by covering a tag with the Creative Expressions "Teresa Collins" paper.  Paint the sides and the back with Eco Green Black Acrylic Paint.

Use the doilies dies to cut shapes from the Teresa Collins Paper and build them up with 3d foam pads.

Cut out (by hand) some leaves and stems from the same paper pad.  Draw dashes onto them with a fine black pen.  Glue into place.

Glue the flowers on with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.
Add a Creative Expressions Cream Self Adhesive Pearl to the flower centres.  Attach a piece of Cream Seam Binding to hang the tag.

Nice and simple and a good way to ease back into crafting after a break!

Now onto the blog candy.....we've reached the 300 mark and using my random number generator (my OH!), he has selected the number 296 and that is Angela Hartley.  So Angela, please e-mail me and I'll get the candy in the post for you...many congratulations.

I'll be putting up a new candy in the next few days so please keep an eye open for it.

On the cruise we went to Jordan and I was finally able to see The Lost City of Petra.  It was stunning and I've put a couple of piccies on here.  Well worth a visit if you're ever anywhere near.

I'll be back tomorrow with a project for Creative Studios, hope you'll visit, but in the meantime, many thanks for stopping by today.
