About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Good morning, well I'm here today to show my make for MAWTT and the theme was Halloween, so I made a frame from a spare piece of mount board. Painted it with Dylusions paint, used a Tim Holtz stencil and added papers from rare oddities by Graphic 45. I then added embellishments from my stash. To get the blood marks on it I dribbled alcohol inks on and blotted it off.

I've had a busy weekend as I went on my 1st ever craft retreat..... Organised by the wonderful Susan Jones from crafty Bunch. This is her putting the shop back together lol,

It was amazing and didn't want to come home. We stayed in a fabulous hotel from Friday to Sunday night. 2 full days of craft with Hels Sheridan & Pauline wheeler. The food and company was fab . 33 ladies all together, some great friends, and even met some wonderful new ladies, food, drink and craft it was perfect. Thanks Sue you deserve a medal ( I'm praying she does another ). Anyway here's a few snaps.

This is one of the projects a folio using the gorgeous Graphic 45 gilded lily. I haven't taken a photo of the storage we made but will post it later in the week.

Well thanks so much for looking, sending hugs 
Elaine xx
