Angie's Crafty Corner




Good morning all, i don't have a card for you today but i have put a few piccies on of my crafty corner.
I love looking at all your craft rooms on your blogs,
some of your craft room/dens are amazing (she says green with jealousy).

You might have read that i dragged the gang to Ikea on 
Thursday, for some much needed storage
for my craft things.

Well i got a fab white unit which holds lots and lots,
I've still got the two bottom draws empty so i can buy
more goodies ( don't tell hubby) LOL.




I also saw this fab chair, i always used a dining chair before
with cushions on, but as soon i i saw this and sat on it i 
had to have it, it's so comfy.
The cupboard we have had for years but that too came from
Ikea, Mark bought it to put his computer in, but when we redecorated the lounge we had built in units made,
so i got the cupboard, which i love because you can just shut it all away when you want to.



Hope you enjoyed looking at my little crafty corner
Take care

Love is




Hi all my card today is for two challenges
Friday Sketchers - Fab sketch to follow

I was lucky enough to see the Hanglar stamps on eBay
when they were first advertised and snapped at set
up straight away, because if you umm and ahh 
about it they go like hot cakes and you miss out.



This little girl is so cute i love this stamp.
I have used my copics to colour her.
The sentiment stamp is from LOTV.
Papers are from K&Company, and
i used some of the same papers to make a flower,
and sprayed it with some mica.
Ribbon and feather from stash.

I'm off to Ikea to look for some storage
for my crafty goodies,
They just keep growing and growing for some reason.
LOL.

 Hi all hope you are having a great weekend, it's half term
here now so the kids are looking forward to the week off.
Beth's managed to stop sucking her thumb as the dentist asked and as a reward we said she could choose something from Sylvanian Families she absolutely loves them.
So i said if she can crack it before half term we would buy her what she wanted. Well I'm going to take her tomorrow
she decided to get the Windmill they do so she really
excited.

I don't have a card to share, I've not been in a card making mood at the moment, but i have been in a knitting mood and made Wilfred to go with the Primrose i made before
Christmas.
I bought the pattern off eBay as i didn't have a Wilfred one 
and kept it a secret and gave it her the other day she was thrilled.






I also wanted to thank Lynne for giving me this award.
Thanks hun. 
I have to pass it onto the blogs i love to visit
so i have chosen

 Go and check out their blogs their work is wonderful and inspirational.

Oh well back to it, Beth's having a major sort out of her room and it looks like a bombs hit it at the moment. 
Better go and help she's making room for her windmill

Bunches of love


 Hi all hope you are ok, my card today is for 
three challenges

Crafters Companion - Romance theme
Wild Orchid - Sketch 
CES - Cute and Cuddly theme

I have use a Popcorn bear stamp called
Bunches of love.
Coloured him in with copics on some 
Neenah card, everyone seems to rate this for 
using with copics or promarkers and i must say
they are right, it's fab.
Blends beautifully.




The papers are a mixture of popcorn bear cd rom
and a magazine freebie.
I have added Glamour dust to the flowers and also
onto the papers with a quickie glue pen.
I have used a Martha Stewart border punch. also
a nestie shape.
The stamped ribbon strip and the butterfly
are stamps from buzzcraft's Olivers orchard.
I found these clear stamps at a local craft shop
on sale, they are so cute, fab to colour, and a bargin.
What could be better. 

Managed to get another tie for my son and
guess what he came home with the 
original one he lost, it turned up.
Anyway now we have a spare one, i'm
sure it's not the last time it will get lost knowing 
these lads.

Thanks for looking

Putting on the Glitz




Hi  there well it's  Papertake Weekly time again and this week
the theme is 

PUTTING ON THE GLITZ 

that's right we want you to use as much sparkle,
glitter as you like.

This week challenged is sponsored by Wendy's digi delights.


Did everyone have a nice day yesterday, did ya
fellas remember. 
Mine did, sometimes he doesn't, but yesterday he did
got me a  card and he took me out for
lunch which was lovely. He definitely scored some
brownie points. LOL. 




Onto my card i have used Cupid Tilda, i must say that out of all my Tilda's this has to be one of my favourites and it's a shame that i can only really use her once a year.
The sentiment is from LOTV
I have painted her with distress inks on 
water colour card.
The papers are  from Basic Grey bittersweet pad.
I have used Nesti and Marianne creatables die for the shapes.I used pumice stone distress ink
on the edge of the image.
I coloured the flowers with the distress inks and water so the would match. I love the way these have turned out 
I'll be doing that again. I sprayed them with a mixture of pearlescent mica powder and water to give the flowers a 
sheen. The hearts in the middle of the flowers are 
punch leftovers, i put diamond glaze on and a pinch of glamor dust .
The leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch.
The pin is form the Ribbon Girl.
i have added diamante and glittered around the edges
with platinum stickles. 

Well I've got to go out now, my son has lost his
school tie and I'll have to get him a new one.
I don't know ' Boy's ' what can you do with them?

I'll have to do some more saving.




The paper is from K&Co best of paper stack.
I have recycled the flower spray 
from another card and added some red feathers.

The sentiment is from LOTV,
stamped on a mini tag die cut shape from Go Kreate. 
I went round the image with silver stickles.

Together forever plus a little extra


Hi all yes yes i have been a bad blogger this last week
but i have a good excuse.
I have put down my paper and inks (only for a little while) and
taught myself to crochet.

It all started when i decided to have a clear out of a cupboard
that i keep my wool in, I'm a knitter, but haven't picked up my needles for
a while until before Christmas, when Beth was looking through
my patterns and came across a brambly hedge primrose doll one, and asked if
i would make it for her


Anyway I'm getting off track a bit but isn't she cute and i finished her
just before Christmas phew.
Right I'm in my cupboard with a lot of different coloured wool
but not enough of one colour to make anything.
It seemed a shame to throw them away,
then i thought i would make a blanket with squares
that i can use in my camper, so checking the web for
patterns came across granny squares so i taught myself,
and away i went. I have made 40 up to now, I'm thinking 100
might make a nice size one. I'll show you when I've finished.


On to this weeks Papertake weekly challenge.
It's an anything goes week with the optional theme of flowers.

We are sponsored this week by LOTV with the prize
of a voucher for £10 to spend in the store.
well worth a go.
I have used one of the new LOTV stamp and sentiment again
this one is called together forever.
I have painted the image with Distress inks.
The paper is K&co classic Mckenna paper pad.
I have just marked the middle and cut the paper
diagonally and folded back to make a little window.


The flowers are a mixture from prima and hobby craft.
i made them into a little spray and then glued that to my card.
I also used gold flower brads and gold mirri card.

I'm going to enter this card into two challenges as well
Wild orchid challenge - Love is theme.
CES challenge - Bold and Bright theme.

I also want to say a big thank you to the team
over at Crafters Companion challenge.
I won last months challenge
WOOHOO
Thanks Girls.

Well that's it for today
Thanks for looking
