Bespoke handmade

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 πŸ˜„

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 πŸ’•πŸ’• 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

#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.

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 😊 Β  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 Β 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 Β£15 inc p&p private message me if you would like to order one. Hope you are having a lovely Sunday Happy Crafting 😊image
