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.

Time for some wine!!

Good afternoon!! Time for some wine? If only.... Am feeling slightly better on the neck front today - so hopefully the new pillow is working!! And I slept an hour longer too which was a bonus!!! But since I got up I seem to be chasing my tail!! Am working on two projects at the same time today as one is messy and needs different bits to dry - so I'm working on the other one in between. And then I get sidetracked sorting stuff out for a craft fair later this month!! It doesn't feel like I'm getting on with any of it particularly well, so have taken a break to pop in here and blog!!

While we were away it was my brother-in-law's birthday!! He likes making wine - and this year is trying to make some from the many damsons that grow in their back garden. So, I thought that this topper from Crafter's Companion Camden Town Male CD would be perfect.
I used the Create Companion in this instance, along with a couple of co-ordinating papers from the CD. I used Papermill Maroon card for the A5 base, and some of their Buff card for matting and layering!

Another piece of the maroon was embossed with CC Embossalicious A4 Argylle folder! I cut the letters with CC Die'sire 1" Alphabet dies. I find these invaluable for personalising cards.

The finishing touches are a piece of ribbon, and Glossy Accents on the bottle and card.
