Masterboard Monday

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

I am here today to show you how I have used up some left-over Masterboard:
You may remember seeing me use this Masterboard before:

When I made this:
 
 
As I still have quite a bit left I decided to cover some tags and here is one of them. I wonder if you can see that the brown trees are actually the waste from cutting out the original ones for the bag above.
 
 
And a close-up.
The white splatter was done using Pebeo Brilliant White Artist Marker and the Noel and the labels are Tim Holtz Thinlits dies.

 
I'm thinking this might make a good topper for a card too so we will see.
 
In case you wondered these are the stamps I used on this Masterboard.

 
I would love to hear your comments.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

More brick work today, it's all coming along nicely.




 
They have started on the bandstand too as some kind people decide to set the roof on fire some time ago so the council are replacing it.


 
Someone is keeping his eye on the proceedings!


Maisie and Stan watched over the replacement of the pond net this week too.
 
 
The worst bit is getting the old net off but I always forget this!

 
Next we have to place lengths of wood across to support the net until it is secured.


And there we are all done which is good because it's turned cooler here and the fish can now settle down for the winter.


Maisie has come to inspect!


Now she has sent for Stan.


Obviously not impressed they have decided it's time to find something more interesting Lol!

 
 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 If you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW 391 # What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!

 
There are things on here today which are new. The Tim Holtz Baubles have been available for a long time but well I just fancied them now they are quite difficult to get hold of but managed to find these. The other new things are the Mini snow flakes and Mini Greens.

 
Been cutting out crazy birds, dogs and hats, sure you can guess what they are for.

 
You may have noticed some bottles of nail varnish, got an idea for those.

 
The 'Exploding Box' is looking even worse today or better depending on how you see it Lol!

 
These are a few left over stars from an earlier project made with a Seth Apter stamp and Shrink Plastic.

 
New Masterboard but can't really show you properly what's under there yet.

 
Everything else is pretty much as it was last week.
If you've not already seen it this is my main project this week other than the Christmas cards.
 
 
I made this for Crafty Cardmakers and have a tutorial here and you can join in the challenge here.
 
  So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Crafty Cardmakers Challenges #178 Anything but a Card.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

 Well what do you know! It's my turn to host the challenge for the next two weeks.
Our challenge is Anything But a Card. With Christmas rapidly approaching we feel sure that you will have created something as a decoration or a gift and would love you to share it with us. 
As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

So here is what I came up with:



Using some Left-Over Masterboard, stamped with Paper Artsy JOFY stamp set 06. I started by tearing a piece to fit the brown Craft Bag. A little bit of grunge always works for me Lol!


Next, die cut trees, tags, plants and words ready to start putting the design together.

 
I embossed the tags with a snow drift embossing folder, rubbed over this with Treasure Gold Gilding Wax in silver and edged everything with black distress ink.
 
Once everything was dry I mounted these on the bag.



 
The trees were attached with my hot glue gun to make them stand out and giving dimension to the design.

 
I completed this by adding a metal star, bows, ribbon and a small tag with Christmas tree attached.


I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 Happy crafty card making.

Friday Fun Day with smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what's been happening this week.

We've been back in the park again and the Weir is really coming together now.

 
This is an absolute work of art!
It has been brilliant watching this come together, a true craftsman at work.

 
I'm waiting to see what he is up to at the far left as the pillar seems to be set off centre but I'm sure he will have a plan for this.

 
I so love these little arched openings and can't wait to see what he intends to use them for.




Just a view of the surrounding area.
As you can see the leaves have been dropping this week.


The park is looking lovely in the autumn sunshine, think we need to make the most of it as it's getting colder now.


This is the building work around where the old house and stables used to be.

 
We went to Macclesfield again last weekend and how different the weather was as you can see here.
 
 
Famous Cat and Fiddle.


 
 

Sorry the photographs aren't brilliant but I couldn't resist showing you this one! Brrrrr!

 
We also went through Chesterfield which is famous for it's church with the crooked spire.

 
Hope you have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by, I'm off now to see what everyone else has been up to.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for

WOYWW #390 What's On You Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!
 
This is a full view of the desk today especially for anyone that has not seen this before. I work in a space between the dining room and the conservatory and it has a skylight above which is why the light in this room is always good so it's great to work in.


As you can see the 'Exploding Box' on the left is once again close to explosion!
 
A left-over Masterboard is stuck in there, little note book where I keep some lists of what needs to be made and when for The Craft Barn and Crafty Cardmakers.
A small paper bag waiting to be finished, that will be around next week.
You can also see some left over tags from an earlier project when I made this for The Craft Barn:
 
 
 
 A close-up of the desk shows some die cutting which is also related to the paper bag.


 And that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,
