Well just to show you what became of those cut off's from the denim jeans! Ta Dah!
A bear cushion! I found the idea on Pinterest but couldn't find a pattern so made up my own. I still have quite a lot of denim left so I will be searching for more things to make by up cycling!
I have to admit I'm addicted to Pinterest at the moment and have been looking at all the lovely cards other people have made. Inspired by a card I saw I also made this birthday card for a friend.
I really enjoyed making this. The design is great for using up all those odd pieces of scrapbook paper that you have kept "just in case." I stamped on some of the squares and added the butterfly and flower to link the squares and bring it all together. Trouble is I then got to thinking about my drawer full of odd Christmas papers that I have and…..
Same design…I used white embossing powder and blue ink to stamp on this one and added die cut snowflakes and silver gems.
I will be making a lot more of these they are so easy. A very productive Easter break!
As well as working at my craft desk we also went out on a few lovely walks…
Llanelli Beach where we almost got blown away on Easter Sunday…
And on Monday we went to Rhossilli on the Gower… This place is so beautiful and so was the weather, we managed to get out of the wind and sit in the sun.. bliss...
Bad hair day!
Then a big black rain cloud appeared…..
and we just made it back to the car before the heavens opened!
Well… That's me for this week. I'm looking forward to more walks and more crafting as I am on the 2 week school holiday… I've also got lots of time to visit you all too.
Have a happy week
