Oh The Places Youll Go!

Here I have created a cute little mixed media house; I was rummaging through my stash and I found this little grey board house and I knew I just has to do something with it!

This is my April DT Piece for Mixed Up Printables
Hugs Aly xx

1. Using wet glue cover the grey board with your chosen paper
2. Edge with Walnut Stain
3. Stencil with the script stencil
4. Smooch a bit of the stencil paste across the card and on the edges
5. Decide on a layout and assemble the piece together using a glue gun

Lost In Thought

Hi all, I am on the design team at Mixed Up Creatables and this month its my turn to blog a project
Here's how I made this tag, entitled 'Lost in Thought'.
1. Cut a tag to the size 5.5” x 4”
2. Cover this with the Old Ledger Printable Sheet
3. Fussy cut out elements from Postcards, Gladys, Victorian Rose, Victorian Leaves.
4. Create a pouch at the bottom of the tag using a piece cut from the Antique Page Printable
5. Arrange the pieces you have cut out into a desirable layout on your tag.
6. I have then added further embellishments by die cutting some butterflies from the Antique Page sheet, adding some sisal and a little sentiment.
Printables I used:
-Old Ledger:…/old-ledger-printable/
-Victorian Roses:…/victorian-roses-print…/
-Victorian Leaves:…/victorian-leaves-prin…/
-Antique Page:…/antique-page-printable/

See you all again next month
hugs Aly xx

Remember The Now

Hello on another wet and miserable day. today I am sharing with you a tag I have made, hopefully it will brighten up your day, hugs Aly xx


Starting all over again!

What happens when you delete all your post from the last few years? Well you just have to start all over again right? Its no biggie, thats life and there are worse things that could happen eh? Life is waaaaaaaay to short. I have had a spell using word press but I cant tell if people are going there and I dont know if folk leave messages, blogging is such an important part of my crafting as I love to share what I have made, crafting and my crafty friends are very important to me. I use Facebook and Instagram too, but there are so many platforms to choose from and I fear I havent got hours and hours to be posting to everything lol. So I will post to both my Wordpress and Blogger for now till I find which is the best and most fruitful one to use. Hugs Aly xx
