Well,we are half way through the month of May already and Scrapbookers Anonymous have posted the cards made by the DT using the leftover papers from our LO's and this month's challenge element which is stamping. This is a brand new challenge for us,so come on cardmakers you don't have to do a LO just get your scrap box out and make a card with a stamped image. You have got until the 31st May to enter your LO,card or both and you could win some of the new Tim Holtz distress papers,if you do both enter them as two seperate entries so you have double the chance of winning.
Here's my card using the leftover paper from my LO.
I've made a step card which I was shown how to make last week by Banu from Sunrise Crafts,the image is Nellie Snellen coloured in using ProMarkers.
The last couple of month's I've been trying to teach myself to crochet using books and tutorials,I really want to make a blanket so I started off doing granny squares but wasn't really happy with them,they looked uneven however much I tried. Over the weekend I was blog hopping and went onto Dottie Angel and saw this blanket.....made by Tif,I just fell in love with it,look at those gorgeous vintage doilies.
Photo Courtesy of Dottie AngelWhen I saw there was tutorial that was very easy to follow with photo's ( I'm more a visual learner) I got my wool and needle back out and gave it another go.
I finished my first square yesterday and though it's not perfect I'm really pleased with myself eventually I'd like to have a go at following a pattern and make one of the cute baby hats and bootees that I keep seeing in those gorgeous gift shops,one step at a time though but watch this space.
Thanks for taking the time to look and leave a comment,I really appreciate it.
