Quick and easy gift

Hi, as I promised here is the completed picture I made with the help of my new Misti. It was very quick and easy to make and a great way of capturing your little ones latest obsession without too much cost. The stamp set used is No Bones about It and you can view this and other Stampin Up items at my online store http://www.elainebaines.stampinup.net  By the time this is posted I will be heading to Telford ready for Stampin Up Onstage and the opportunity to meet other Stampin Up demo’s and see some of the new products 😀 Have a lovely weekend and Happy Crafting 😊image

#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 😊

Miniature Birdhouse

Hi, I decided to have a bit of a play about with a small wooden birdhouse I bought a few weeks ago. It measures approx 7.5 x 6 x 3 cm and I covered it with Stampin Up English Garden DSP and one or two flowers using the punches and the small bird stamp from Everything Eleanor stamp set. I think it’s quiet cute and looks lovely sitting amongst my makes. Happy Crafting 😊   Want to purchase items or look at Stampin Up products then go to my online store http://www.elainebaines.stampinup.net

Spring Sunday

Hi, been a busy week in the craft space making swaps for Stampin Up On Stage at Telford next Saturday. I can’t show you my swaps just yet as I want to keep them a secret and part of them I’m not quite sure what to put in them at present! Today after  finishing my swaps I thought I’d make a gift for a special little someone I will see next week to put in her bedroom. I just love making these home decor items it’s amazing how different they look with a change of colour. I used Mint Macaroon cardstock and the beautiful English Garden DSP. If you would like to purchase one in the colour of your choice I charge £15 inc p&p private message me if you would like to order one. Hope you are having a lovely Sunday Happy Crafting 😊image

Botanical Blooms

Hi, lovely afternoon the sun is shinning and all feels well with the world. Mr Darcy is still sunning himself, he managed a quick wash but now he’s back to sleep by my feet. Today’s project is inspired by the sun and the idea of flowers blooming in the gardens very soon. The basket is one of a set of 3, I bought at Ikea a few weeks ago, I have used the middle sized basket. Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow card stock and inks were used all from Stampin Up. Watch this space to see what I do with the other 2 baskets!  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, Happy Crafting 😊image

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 😊
