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

Leonie's new launch is live...

Good evening to all my lovely followers. Tune into Hochanda right now to see the fantastic new Christmas entwined dies and stamps that Leonie Is launching. It's a one day special. The dies are fabulous and intricate and cut lovely, and well I just love stamps so these are perfect.
Here's one of my samples which is an altered tissue box.......

I covered the box in distress paint and then rubbed the Silver Pebeo gilding wax over parts of it. Then I heat embossed some of the fabulous stamps and added some of the dies all from this release. I created it as a small home decor peice ideal for those cold winter days.
Don't forget you can also tune into Hochanda tomorrow for more shows at 9am, midday, 4pm and 7pm. Leonie and the rest of the fabulous design team have made some amazing projects as usual and I've been in awe of such a talented bunch of lovely people.
