She art tin cover

Hello fellow crafters and bloggers  :-)  

I've just joined a 'She art' swap on UKScrappers and I hadn't done she art before until now.  

I have some 'not quite me' tins that I am using to store some of my crafty items in and a couple of days after signing up to the swap a lightbulb flipped on in my head and then the she art ideas for covering the top of the tins started pouring in.  

So, here are a couple of photos of one tin before the cover and the same tin with the cover.

I used some free papers I had laying around for the background and for the outfit.  The butterfly wings were freebies from somewhere, I think from google search free printable images, I got ages a go and the wording I did myself.

Thanks for looking xxxx

May postcard swap

I made this postcard for a swap on UKStampers, it's a year long swap that each of us freely takes part in on a monthly basis, and this is the one I made for May  :-)

I really liked the postcard a lot and felt like I wanted to keep it for myself so I made myself another one and popped it on the front cover of an envelope book I made last year and sent the original of to a fellow crafter.

Postage Stamphead Atc's

Helloooo, it's been a while since I last blogged, but here I am  :-)  With me today are these atc's I have made for a swap on UKScrappers Forum and they have been a lot of fun to do.  I have taken five used stamps and added them to some fashion cut outs.  three of which have sentiments and two have not...I got a bit stuck as to what sentiments to add to the two.  Here they are for you to take a look at xx

Inchies and Twinchies Minibook Swap

While I am happy with the Inchies I have made for the Swap I am currently in...I am, at the same time, a bit unsure about the Twinchies I have made for the same Swap.

Black and White Christmas Cards

Hello Crafters :)  Here are some
Black and White Christmas
cards that I thought I would have
a go at.  Up until a few days a go
I never thought of making black
and white Christmas cards...I
just had all this black A4 card
lying around not getting used,
and as I was making Christmas
cards anyway, I went for some
white paper and card and got
right to work.  See what you
think of them.
