MOJO 256


Howdie fellow crafties...

Well, I got my 'MOJO' on early this week...

Yesterday I was making my son a cumber bun & bow tie for his ballroom dancing (as you do...) and had some left over satin fabric just yelling out for some floral action. I have seen this done on a few different sites and last night decided to try making a few fabric flowers by cutting some circles and melting the edges with a tealight... I then had it in my head that I wanted to incorporate them with this weeks MOJO Monday challenge... was a bit enthused when I came home to see this weeks sketch... my little flowers were able to make an appearance.. yaaayyyyy!!!

The 'Floral District' paper is a bit of a 'sneeky peeky' of one of the many new awesome products that will appear in the new Stampin' Up! catalogue out on September 1st.. not many sleeps now!!! Cannot wait! Stay Tuned...

Here is this weeks MOJO 256 Sketch... mmm... what to choose... round or square???
Square won out this week...

Now for the finish product...

 


Well, I can hear my bed calling... gotta kick my son out first as he is curled up in there watching Avatar for the 50th time!

Till next time,

Happy Birthday Mum...


Hey Dad.... here's the card I made for you to give to Mum... and Mum... if you are reading this 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY!'... Looking forward to catching up for tea tomorrow...
Hope you enjoy the day...

For those of you who are playing along at home... these cute little flowers are another one of those 'product knowledge' purchases from work... I'm a sucker for a bargain, they were on special!!! Gotta love a sale... and the little flowers were purple (mmm... my favourite colour!!!)



 
See you tomorrow Mum & Dad...

MOJO 255



Hi de ho fellow craft addicts...

Well, I've spent an entire day painting my bedroom.... its nearly finished!!! Yayyy!!! Looks awesome! I'm off to hunt for curtains tomorrow and one more coat of paint of the skirting boards... and lamps... and it done. Then its the fun bit... dressing the room... can't wait!!

My poor little craft room however, was screaming for attention, but the paint brush won out for most of the day... still, I managed to finally get back to do the MOJO Monday challenge... I thought this had a bit of a retro feel.. definitely something I wouldn't normally do, but still had fun. This card was made using some cool paper I got from work... I call all my work purchases 'product knowledge'... well, you have to see what its like... mmm... that's my excuse...

Here is this weeks sketch... MOJO255


 
 

 
Well, I had better finish cleaning up the paint bits and pieces so nobody trips over in the middle of the night... (it all sitting in the hall... not good...)
 
Till next time,

Going Going Gone!


Hi Fellow Craft Addicts..

Yes, its 7.30 and I'm escaping into my lovely little craft room for a little bit of therapy before work... there is still painting to be done in the bedroom but that's not sounding too appealing!!! I've woken up with a bit of a brain ache... I slept in there last night... probably shouldn't have, as it was a bit smelly with paint fumes... but the bed was sooo warm and yummy I couldn't bring my self to sleep in the cold spare bed... mmmm..... bed.... Torsten escaped to the lounge to escape the smell & paint tins etc.. smart boy!!! We shall see how it goes tonight... cant wait till its all finished. Gotta love renovating....

Well, back to crafty things...

As you probably already know, Stampin' Up! is releasing their new 2012-2013 Catalogue on 1st September... simply cannot wait!!!! To make room for all the new goodies, they will be retiring quite a few items... this is you last chance to pick up your favourites before they disappear!!!

Till next time

By the Seaside


Hi fellow craft addicts...

Finally I finished this 'Seaside' card... the little paper shells have been sitting on my desk, unfinished for a couple of weeks... I don't know about you, but occasionally I will just randomly stamp something with no real direction... it may sit there for a few days... weeks...  just waiting for that bit of inspiration to finish it... well, today was the day. The little shells finally found a home.





Well, time for a cuppa and curl up with a book... or should I say 'kindle'... gotta luv the kindle!!!
till next time,

MOJO253


Morning all,

Things have been pretty hectic here this week... between work, wifely duties, painting the bedroom and general 'stuff' the craft room has  been a bit neglected.. well, I couldn't resist playing along with this weeks MOJO Monday challenge. That was a given, as I'm a bit addicted. Here is this weeks Sketch...


I originally intended to do a 'boy' card... but finished up doing this one. Well a girl can change her mind...
I used the Stampin' Up! Fabulous Florets stamp set in Whisper White Pacific Point & Wild Wasabi... added a little bling.. there you have it this weeks entry...





Well, time to get my act together... get ready for work...
Till next time,

Triple Layer


Morning my friends..

Its 6.45 in the morning... and yes, I'm in the craft room already! I thought I would have a quick 1/2 hour of playing before I hit the 'wifely' duties... cleaning, washing, food shopping, blah, blah, blah...

Anyway, back to the card...

I've seen different versions of this 'Triple Layer', or 'Triple Time' card.. one of them being on Mary Fish's site Stampin Pretty..
http://www.stampinpretty.com/2012/07/a-reason-to-smile-for-triple-time-stamping.html
If you want to do something quick & easy, but still look effective, this card is great.



Well I all goes well, might be back to play this afternoon... fingers crossed!!
Till next time,

Strawberry


Hi all..

just quickly wanted to show you my latest 'Fimo' creation.. my little strawberry pendant. I cheated though and used one of the new Martha Stewart push moulds.. they are sooooo very cool!!! Just press in the polymer clay (she has her own clay available but I can't go past the Fimo or Sculpy clays...) and flip over the little mould, press the back and gently stretch out the sides.. out it pops... couldn't be easier. The detail is great!


With this little strawberry, I painted on a layer of black acrylic paint and wiped off the excess with a damp sponge, let it dry and added a couple of drops of glossy accents to look like a few water droplets... (as suggested by my other half.. he was having a creative moment with me... oohhh... isn't that nice...)

Well time for bed... I can hear it calling...
Till next time,
