eughh !!

Stirring a pan of hot chilli with a saxaphone around your neck is not a good look !!!!!................ but I digress... the sneaky peak on Monday was of course, the brand new Shabby Green Door - a whole new division from Daisy Bucket with the first debut range "Farmers Market" - unlike the usual Daisy Bucket papers, these are heavy weight and un-textured, double-sided and with matching rub-ons and little clear stamps - it's already proving quite a hit, so hope we can look forward to more Shabby Green Door ranges to come. Daisy Bucket will be producing some new papers of their own in September so lots to look forward to there.

Tomorrow we will hopefully have the new Sassafrass Lass "Me Likey" range and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the new Felties will be in the same order - our regular delivery man thinks I am quite mad " no-one else gets THAT excited when I bring their boxes " he said LOL !!

Having nabbed one of the new Tim Holtz Mini Holidays stamp sets at the weekend (all in the name of research you understand - well I had to make sure they were ok first !!) I came over all festive and made a tag using alcohol inks, crackle paint, stickles, and other bits including Grungepaper which is my new best friend - try cutting those antlers out of paper or card, by the time they have been inked and painted - that reindeer would have been bald ! but not with grungepaper - wow it's so flexible and easy to cut out.

OK, I did try to get the picture underneath the words, but for some reason I can only do sides or top ?!?!?! it's on anyway LOL !


  1. Hi Lyn, Fab Tag !!! I must invest in some of those stamps ...and grunge paper is my new best friend too, I love it! and it goes through the Cricut beautifully as well as being good to ink, paint, spritz, reshape, hand list is endless, and I like it's leathery smell.

    Beautiful layered artwork. Good thinking re use of the grunge paper, I must remember that!

  3. Looks fabulous. You can also drag the photo down but then you can't make it enlarge.
