Stampin' Up Freebie!!

Hello bloggers!

Did I mention that's it's SALE-A-BRATION time at Stampin' Up?! If you spend £45 over in my Stampin' Up shop (click on the logo on my side-bar) then you can choose one of the fabulous free stamp sets of offer, one of which I've used here!

I made a Gelli Plate print background for the little bi-plane to fly through. The set is called Sky is the limit, it's great for congratulations on exam passes, for a Valentines card for a man, or for a birthday card, fabulous!

Don't forget, it's only available as a free gift when you spend £45!

Thanks for popping by, see you again soon! Xxxxx

A burnt 'Lavinia' tea light holder...

Hello bloggers!

I've really enjoyed burning these pretty Lavinia designs onto this tea-light holder. I decided to give it to my daughter, who is always so kind and complimentary about my crafts, bless her! :)

The fourth side has my daughter's name and date of birth on it, so I'm not posting a picture of that side!

The holder is made from Sycamore wood, absolutely lovely to burn, no soft bits or sappy bits to worry about.

I hope you like it! Thank you for visiting, big hug! Xxxx

My first burnt chopping board!

Hello bloggers,

Happy New Year!! I hope 2016 brings you peace, prosperity, good health and creativity!

After seeing Jo Rice's fabulous chopping boards and listening to her advice, I decided to have a go at burning a design onto a board. Jo has posted a great tutorial on her blog if you want to learn more. I traced the chicken design onto the wood with the aid of graphite paper and then started burning! I used a very fine wire tip for the outline and fine details, then a spoon tip to shade in.

Thank you for visiting! Have fun, whatever you are doing today! Xxx
