My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy


Hi there! I've had a busy week trying to get these core'dinations projects together. They are having a design team call and it was an opportunity I cannot miss! Bit of a squeeze on time as I've worked four days and still managed to feed the gang and do some domestic goddess stuff!
First thing I've put together is a birthday card for a 2 year old girl.( Saving it for later this year!)
I've sanded the number two from a stencil and then cut around the edge.I've used two shades
 of core'dinations and an embossed white which has been inked over. Simple but sweet I think!

|Next up is a layout of my lovely little Emma on her 1st birthday. Ive made the roses from two shades of core'dinations. Once the edges are inked and sanded they have a lovely stressed battered look. One of it's biggest plus point's for me. Unfortunately I lost the light so will have to try for a better layout shot tomorrow.

 Finally- my Easter gift box in the form of a Easter Bunny hutch. It's for Andrew and there's a Easter chick-en coop for Emma!
I have also made my first tutorial to watch- eek!! Have a look and feel free to comment. Constructive criticism welcome but be gentle!

Funnily enough, after using my slightly suspect file's for sanding in the tutorial, I found this and had to treat myself. A proper tool!!
So there you are- my submissions. I think my strength is in the scrapbooking and card's equally. I loved doing all these projects because the beauty of this card stock is it is a blank canvas. You can sand and distress and emboss and make it into a unique patterned paper- or you can go bare and just enjoy the colour. It's got no limits with style or colour- it's there to do whatever  you want it to!!
I hope you like what I've done- thanks for looking!!

Catching up

I had this photo and layout sitting waiting to be a scrapped for yeeeeeeaaaaaaarrrrrrrsssss! Seriously! About 4! It's been at the bottom of a pile and I've never got round to finishing it. who could resist it though? A three year old with a mouthful of mud- no wonder boys have the rats and snails rhyme! Hence the title mud sticks! Nowadays the nine year old is much more choosy on what he eats! Any faddy eaters your end??

On a bloggy note I feel like a new look- I keep look at the thing to change your template but there are things  like about my old style. Watch this space I guess!

Not all cute

 I tried something new today. Manga drawing! I haven't reall done any proper drawing since college. But I had these sheets that came with my promarkers, so decided to have a go. it's not bad for a first attempt but is by no means up there with pokemon!
Still been knocking out a few cards too. Think I have my crafting head back on! ( Remember how Worzel Gumidge used to change his head- that's what I need. Overseas or young visitors please google this- it was a UK tv show from the 80's- awful but in a good kind of way!!)

Normal service will be resumed...

....when I stop playing with these promarkers! All these years of crafting and I never went there....ever! Now I'm all cutsie!! So not me! But a change is as good as a holiday so I'll get it out of my system and then go back to my normal style- whatever that is! Keep your eyes on IACW-we will be back at the end of March with an Easter relaunch and regular post again!
