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
