This is my first blog and as such it will be a steep learning curve for me - so there will be developments and changes along the way and hopefully it will be fun to discover how to do these new things but it may be more by luck than judgement.
I have crafted now for a little while - collecting bits and pieces along the way as one does but with no clear thought process - then along came an American company called Stampin' Up - and what a revelation it has turned out to be for me.
Now, I don't pretend that with a craftroom full of 'stash' it will be an overnight change - it will be gradual but I shall do my utmost to keep this site to SU products as much as possible.
Having received some lovely Christmas pressies from my crafting girlfriends I wanted to make them something that was pretty but at the same time useful to say 'Thank you' to them. I often visit an American website http://www.inkingidaho.blogspot.com/ put together by Becky Roberts - I found this idea there - a set of four little notelets in a holder. Well, the photo was meant to be just below but it has shot to the top of the blog - don't quite know how that happened - I think if you click on it it will give you a larger photo - it's a bit small - I think I'll try medium next time.
Items used: SU Stamp Set - Heartfelt Thanks; SU Scalloped Punch; SU Ruby Red Ink.
Black Stazon Ink; White Linen-effect Card and Sizzix Scallop Tag Combo.
