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

My favourite re-release

Hello friends, well to say I was overjoyed when graphic 45 decided to re-release steampunk Debutante is an understatement. I loved these papers when I went to a workshop around 6 years ago and only ever managed to buy the odd sheet. But now I have a full set yay ! So I created this little matchbook box which is also from g45. It's this weeks design team piece for Jones crafts. I painted it with black gesso and cut out all the bits and bobs from the paper including lots of the little butterflies. Added some dies and flowers etc. I'm really pleased how it turned out. Take a look.....

Hope you liked it. Anyway a huge piece of exciting news for me is that I've been asked to demonstrate graphic 45 at one of the craft shops in the local area. I'm thrilled and also scared out of my wits ! It's at intricut crafts which has just moved into a larger premises. Nerves are so bad already, I'm beavering away making lots of samples etc. so wish me luck it's on Halloween lol. 
Hope you are all having a great week , take care thanks for looking and taking the time to leave comments, I can't thank you enough xxx
