What, no craft space!

Hi, I’ve been a very busy girl this last week moving craft stuff around, rearranging and getting a little bit excited! I no longer have a paper craft space at home it’s gone and made way for my sewing room. No I’ve not given up my beloved stamping, paper crafting it’s just got a new home. Keep watching this space for more information over the next week ……… As Our Creative Den begins to take shape in the beautiful Calder Valley, sooo excited! The pictures attached are my old craft space before and after, no doubt I will fill it up a bit more! Happy Crafting 😄

 

Simply Affectionately Yours

imageHi, today’s projects are 2 quick makes using Affectionately Yours DSP one of the new packs of DSP you will be able to purchase from 1st June. They are both made using Very Vanilla card stock and Night of Navy ink. Happy Crafting 😊

Novelty card

Hi, the new in colour DSP stack Playful Palette lends it’s self well to all kinds of projects. This particular sheet made me think of fabric and how pretty it would look as a novelty apron card. It’s a quick make card and open to all kinds of fancy accessorising, your imagination can run wild. Happy Crafting 😊

3rd Birthday Boing Box Card

Hi, today’s project is a bespoke project I put together for Edward’s 3rd birthday, he’s my sweetheart 💕💕 it took me quite sometime to put it together with a handmade spring to present the contents in a totally amazing way. Reality, it just struggled to pop about 1cm no sign of boing at all! Having said that it looks pretty good once it’s assisted from hiding and tweaked to make the best of the display. Eddie liked it and that’s all that matters. Hope you’re all having a good Bank Holiday and Happy Crafting 😊

Hello

imageHi, sorry I’ve not posted on my blog for a week or so I’ve been busy with lots of things, work, plans, changes & Telford On Stage Live to name a few. I’m busy in the craft space today making cards etc. for future workshops so all I can do is give you a sneak peek of them. They are made using two of the new Stampin Up 2016/18 Incolors. But if you watch this space all will be revealed in the next week or two. Hope you’re all well, warm and dry and enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend. Happy Crafting 😊

#imbringingbirthdaysback

Hi, Stampin Up have just released a new stamp #imbringingbirthdaysback as part of the move toward getting people to send handmade cards rather than Facebook messages or e- cards.  Have you every received or sent a handmade card? Would you like to receive a handmade card that you can send out to a member of your family or friends? For a limited period of one week starting from Monday 18th April until Sunday 24th April (inc) I will send you a handmade card so you can see the quality of Stampin Up products and the professional look you get from these products. All you have to do is like my Laineybcrafts Facebook page (it must be the page you like not the post) and send me your address so I can send you your free handmade card. If you already like my page just send me your address. Only one card per household please. If you would like to learn how to make your own cards, let me know as I will be arranging workshops in Calderdale in the coming weeks. The cards I send out will be of my choosing – no special request, sorry. Happy Crafting 😊

Sale-a-bration stamp set

Hi, i can hear you thinking she’s already posted something today – but I thought I would show you a card made with an SAB stamp set this card is a stamping direct to card project, no layering, no glitter, no dimension, simply ink and stamping. The blue sky is gentle daubing and the images are The Flowering Fields stamp set which is available as a free Sale-a-bration item and will sadly no longer be available as from midnight tonight when SAB ends. The images where made using the Stampin Write markers. I love this stamp set I wish SU had made this one for the new annual catalogue! You can still get this set free if you place an order today by going to my online store http://www.elainebaines.stampinup.net      imageHappy Crafting 😊

Thank you Thursday

Hi, it’s a few days since I posted any projects so I thought I’d better get something on here. Today’s project is a selection of Thank you cards made using the World of Thanks stamp. I used a selection of bright colours to make the image stand out and teamed it with layering. A quick and easy project. On one of the cards I used glitter and the pastel multi colour I used the ‘resist’ technique. Off to do a bit of crafting and nattering with my friend KraftingK. Happy Crafting 😊
