CREATING, CREATING oh and a little more CREATING...

You know that feeling..."no mojo' ? Well before Christmas I felt flat, I felt like my mojo had left me forever.
Then Christmas came, I had a good rest (sort of) LOL !!! And BAM !!!!!!! It's back.
Project Life has changed me, seriously, I'm crafting for me not just the shop, I'm finding it so quick, simple yet, still creative, I'm doing it my way not the PL way, but that's OK, I don't think the PL police are going to get me :) :)
I'm so lucky to be on the Jones Crafts Design Team as I get to play with so many lovely things, one of them being KaiserCrafts Captured Moments, their version of PL..... it's gorgeous !!!! I'm just working on some samples for the Jones Crafts stand at the trade show in Feb....here's a few sneaks....














I've used Snap Shots and Favourite Things on these ones and now here's a few PL ones along with a JilliBean one








This one above, is work in progress





This is my first one I did, not much embellishing compared to th…

 The 'LOVE' stamp is perfect, not just for this, but for those all important valentines cards. How many will you get ???  I couldn't get enough of the stickers, they just transform the backing in an instant. and the elements from the Pea Pod Parts were FAB !! Look at the heart bunting…Love it !!!  I just used the 12" x 12" card stock sheets and cut them…

KEEPING IT STYLISH….

One of the BEST things about being on the Jones Craft Design Team is that you get to play sorry, I mean work with some rather yummy stash.
Kaisercraft is no exception, always have and always will love what KaiserCraft produce and I particularly LOVE the Art of Life Collection, it's just timeless, you just know you'll make something with this and look back on it and STILL love it :) :)
Another thing KaiserCraft have become renowned for in this industry is their Beyond the Page products, they are so well made and thought out, I love using them. So this month I worked on the Mini Cupboard with the Art of Life papers….of course !!

I also used the KaiserColour Paint in Antique White  I always paint the edges first and then go on to paint the rest, then I covered it in some of the papers from the range.  To make the "Knobs" I mixed up some WOW Embossing Powder and WOW Melt-It, heated it in a foil case and poured into a silicone mould, once set (approx. 1 minute) I glued a …
