Accordion Cards xx




Morning lovelies

Hope you had a great weekend, we sure did!!

We picked up our spanking brand new caravan on Thursday and then threw everything in, including the dog and went away for the weekend! Its just so lovely, scroll to the bottom for a wee peek at it!

So did anyone catch the HOCHANDA one day special yesterday?? The fab new Crafter's Companion Accordion overlays are out and wowsers are they stunning!!


If you have the bases already then your all set to get making with these. Here's just a couple of the of my creations


This is the circle base with the Cogs and Gears overlay




Another with the Circle base and this time the Cherish Overlay



and lastly the Oval Base and the Elegance Overlay


What do you think??
 My favourite has to be that wee Wedding card, the colours are just fab together and the touch of red just pops right out!!

Remember and check out the Crafter's Companion website for some more Overlays in the range and also you'll find more inspiration on the blog!

Well until next time

New Craft Room xxx

Evening all
I do hope this finds you all well?? Me I'm on cloud nine!!

As the title suggests, ME yes little me has a new Craft Room! Totally NEW and all designed by the hubby just for me and what I need! 



You can see there is a stair case at one side of room, this is one of the reasons I got the New Craft Room! See hubby decided to convert the loft in too a office for himself, well a Man Cave really and that meant adding the stairs in. This would mean if someone was staying he would have to pass them to get to his room, so decided to move me in the spare room and give me a whole new craft room!!



It started off looking like the above pictures, with the new stairs coming through the ceiling!


Here's the trip to Ikea, of course where else would you get perfect made 12x12 storage hehe
 

Look at all those colour coordinated bits and bobs heeee


I just need to add my dies to the rack and thats it 
 

My wee colouring desk, still my promarkers to add!!



This is my wee shelves full of crafty makes and of course cards plus my bits and bobs!

You can check the video below for a full start to finish of the room makeover!



Thanks for popping by! I'm off to play now, feels like its been to long!

Happy Crafting everyone
