It is a cloudy and non-summer like day in Pembrokeshire again (although we did have 2 days of sunshine) and TUESDAY. I am typing this up whilst watching Real Housewives of New York (I love all the RH series - this is an old one, but interesting to see what happened before it all happened), so that when I get up early on Wednesday full of excitement to link up with Julia @ her Stamping Ground I may even get into a higher position on the list of crafty workspaces.
Having my extra table and more organised storage in my craft room is really helping me to create. My new promise to myself to try and make at least one project each day is so far being kept to. I have made some more Xmas cards, some general (any occasion) cards, a New Baby card and started on a set of 3 Twinchies for a UK Stampers swap. This involved Debbi Moore's Metal Magic and stamping into it - which I hadn't done before. My hubby even came to watch! By the 3rd attempt I had worked out that I needed to get a thick layer and heat it for longer until it literally slides around on the card. I really enjoy trying out new things.
My top tip for this week is to make your own Washi Tape. Get some micro-porous tape from any pharmacy and then just decorate it to suit your project. I used it on a distress-style card, so coloured it with a Copic and then stamped on with Distress Ink. Much cheaper and very satisfying. Take a look at the finished product - Rooster card.
