About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 43 - Preparation

Evening! Today has been a combination of a bit of crafting this morning to make my Mum's Mother's day card. And an afternoon of planning in preparation for a few regular teaching sessions I have after half term.

But there was just time this evening to dig out my original Textures collection of 8x8 folders and stamps (the new Elements collection is, of course, winging its way to me as we speak), along with other supplies necessary to finally have a go at Sheena's faux leather technique. I bought the glycerin eons ago - but I've just not got round to having a go.
I've got as far as spritzing the Kraft card with glycerin and water and squishing it several times. And I've embossed one half with the Leaf Vein folder, and the other with the Distress folder. It's now drying on my craft table - we'll have to see what it's like in the morning!!
