Beatrix Potter Calendar Project

Hi all here I have created a project for you on how to make the Beatrix Potter Calendar Project Kit by Crafter's Companion . These are really easy to make. You get 2 complete calendars in the kit to create for £9.99 – less your membership discount of course!!!! If your not already a member why not? Check out there wonderful Club Inspire .   Right then onto the project.   Step 1 Take your Kit and ribbon from the packet. Step 2 Seperate the two calendars Step 3 Take the November page and remove the 4 holes from the top and the section from the main page. Layer ontop of the December Page. Step 4 Remove all of the other pages in this way layering ontop of each other. Step 5 Place the front cover on your project.   Step 6 Make some ribbon loops through each hole on the top, ensuring they are not too tight so your calendar pages will turn.   Step 7 Thread some ribbon through the middle two loops you have just created to make a hanging loop.   Now your Cale

Molly Bloom Christmas

Hi all I bet you thought I had vanished. Sorry for not blogging. As some of you may be aware I have not been myself of late and finding things a bit difficult. Well I have been trying to take my mind off it and have made this Christmas card today. I have used a Molly Bloom stamped image. I must admit I started to colour this image back in October but only got the hat coloured. I completed the colouring today using my Spectrum Noir Pens from Crafter’s Companion . I stamped onto Neenah Card Stock with Memento ink. I am pleased with the way the colouring has turned out. Practice and advice from wonderful people like Leann Chiver’s, Marcea Watkins, Louise Welsh and Co. has certainly helped improve my colouring technique. Here’s the card I have used the following products to complete my card Crafter’s Companion Neenah Card Stock Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Molly Bloom Jolly Snowman Stamp Lili of the Valley Set 8 happy Circular Stamps WOW Black Glint Embossing Powder Lil
