Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box Slider Card

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today card is a Lawn Fawn slider card with this months Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box. Throw in a DCWV Rainbow Splash paper stack and the Lawn Fawn Magic Slider dies and we are good to go! You can see me unboxing this months box here and you can get it here.

Trying to be more organised when I film, so I precut everything I needed and actually had everything for a change. There is a missing stamp about though! The Copics and Promarkers were even picked before filming, though I did need to find some more. Stamping on cardstock was done with alcohol marker friendly Memento and on the acetate with Stazon.

The Waffle Flower Sweet Ice Cream and Hedgehog Hollow Sweet Sentiments stamp sets were both used. Copics and Promarkers (see below) were used to colour. To create the mask I used a piece of paper, some fussy cutting and some Zig Two Way glue. Most of the colouring used two colour blends.

Ice Cream Combos – Promarker V735 and Copic C5, Promarkers G267 and G356, Copic B24 and Promarker B637, Copic R85 and R83, Copic E53 and E51, Copic E79 and E77, Copic R24 and R27 and some Glitz Sea marker Southern Ocean.

Mouse – Shirt – Copic YR18 and YR16 Bow Tie (cause bow ties are cool) – Promarker B637 and Copic B24 Mouse – Copic W5, W3 and W1 Cheeks and Ear – Copic R23 and R21.

Background – Ground – Copic C5, C3 and C1 Ground – Copic B00, B000, B0000.

That’s a lot of colours! If you watched to the end of the video you saw as well as using the Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box I also showed how to use stamps from this previous box and talked about how you could case your stash to get similar results :). I Hope you enjoyed this video and are doing some arty crafty alchemy yourself. Bye for now.

Caroline’s Gifts Part 2

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today I am sharing  Caroline’s gifts part 2. Caroline gave me some more stuff while I was at craft group 😀 Two grocery bags full in fact. When I say full, I mean bursting at the seams lol. I am very greatful to have received so many lovely things.

There are some more lovely scrapbooking papers including some of my favourites from DCWV. There are stickers and rub ons and vellum poems. Lots of little bits and pieces. Some chipboard from Graphic 45 that matches the papers I got in the first video.

There is quite a lot of Creative Memories stuff. A whole pack of different coloured border strips, stickers, die cut Christmas words, punches! I am very excited about these especially as one is the hexagons and hexagons are back in again… The Creative Memories cutting system with the three little blades and some of the shapes to cut and templates to see the sizes.

Whilst I have hexagon dies already to make a card with many hexagons on it I think the punch will be a much better and faster option. The Ebosser I have takes 30 seconds to pass the plates through the machine, in that time with the punches I could probably punch around 20 lol. Double that if I used both punches at once.

What was your favourite item that Caroline gave me?  If there anything in particular you would make? That doily was lovely, while I was editing the video I was thinking that it would make a great addition to a journal or mini album cover.

Thanks for joining me, hope you’re creating your own Arty Crafty Alchemy. Bye for now.

Huge Haul, Carloline’s Gifts!

Welcome fellow alchemists,

Today I am sharing a huge haul from a lady in a craft group I just recently started going to. Huge may be an understatement lol. The first time I met this lady was only two weeks before she gave me all these pretty things! Feeling very blessed 🙂 Thank you so much Caroline!

From embellishments to papers this gift had it all! My favourite embellishments were the cute lil shaker bunnies and the cut apart laser cut baby piece from Plaid. The Paper Pizazz Verses 2 was also a fave and I can’t wait to find some projects to use them on.

Where do I start with those papers. Of course the Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary has me swooning. There are only a few G45 stacks in my stash unfortunately. KaiserCraft is always a winner too 🙂 The rose paper with the silver? How have I never seen this before? Wow! Almost forgot about the vintage papers, from the baby ones to the old photos and sketched Pooh. Love Love Love. Oh and I have always been partial to K & Company. There are a few stacks in my stash.

On a side note I have most of my 12″ paper sorted by colour. This is not working for me. My feeling is except for the paper basics like spots, checks and plainer papers I need to organise them back into brands and series and then maybe alphabetise them as it helps keep co-ordinating pieces together. Most of my newer KaiserCraft stacks are stored like this in 12″ project folders. However I have too much paper to do this with all of it… “Blush.” Honestly I feel very daunted when I have to go find something in my paper stash at the moment 🙁 How do you store your 12″ papers? Got any Tips?

Hope you are doing some arty crafty alchemy of your own
