I was blurfing last night til 2.30am :-0 and came across Dawn. Oh My Word. What a wonderful woman. Uploads video tutorials all the time, I made this one Post it Note and Pen holder below, last night using THIS tutorial! Of course mine is awful for a first go but its a start! Dawns are just amazing, as is EVERYTHING she makes!!
I am gonna use patterned card stock and a simple image for my next one. I will be teaching my kids to make this today for themselves as my first one has been, erm, borrowed, by one! Lol!
Then I found Kristina had made this little 'takeout' box, below is the first one I have made using Berry Sweet Cardstock from KandCO and curling ribbon from Morrisons. This box has subsequently been stolen by a child, stuffed with chocolate and I have been told that that is her gift to Daddy! haha! bloomin' cheek......
My second box, a lovely golden one, was stolen by another child, stuffed with a Roary the Racing Car and claimed, bloomin cheek...
I then gave up making them for me and printed out the pdf pattern (found on Kristinas page) onto the reverse of lots of patterned cardstock and white card, where they proceeded get my stamps out and stamp all over the white card and then cut the template out, or go ahead and cut it straight out on the patterned card. Very creative! We now have a dalmation print one, a tiger one, beautiful flowers.......etc!! All made by kids that are 7, 11 and 12. The 4 year old is wandering around trying to steal them as they are finished off ;).
I am off now to have a go at more of Dawn and Kristina's tutorials! Where would we be without wonderful women such as these!
Later ladies :D, be good!
