Tag it Tuesday

From the Crafter’s Companion ‘Cute as a Button’ kit

I cut tag shapes (with the scan n cut) from scraps of card and tried to use up embellishments as part of a ‘Use What You Have’ drive. This was so successful that I have batched and bagged sets to give away.

Die cut flowers, butterflies, ribbon and twine all used, hurrah. Not quite used up yet though.

Into each batch went some not so girly tags as well, not that many though.
How is that for forward planning? I even have some Christmas tags ready.

Heat transfer vinyl

Remnants from a ‘remake the outdoor blinds’ project have been transformed, thanks to heat transfer vinyl …

This premium vinyl is much better than the economy version I have used before and I am surprised how well it melds into the canvas fabric. Let us see how the boat flag survives its outdoor life.

The other projects created from this crafty session with the trusty scan n cut (the whale is a standard supplied svg) will remain a Christmas surprise for the lucky few!

Diy wreath builder

0886B0C4-15DC-402D-97D6-1E8D0E6D6471

I cut a stencil from acetate to make a wreath builder,  saving myself money and extending the use of my new Craftwork cards flower stamps.

The stencil is merely two 4 1/4” squares, one rotated 45 degrees to form a star shape. The scan n cut did it’s stuff and I popped out the star leaving a place holder to rotate stamping paper around so that repeated stamping in a stamp positioner is neatly aligned. (See Gina K wreath builder if you want the original at £10.99)

For this card I used my distress oxide inks and filled the centre with fussy cut flowers from the papercraft magazine kit.
