Camden Town Wall Hanging

This is a wall hanging I made using the Camden Town CD from Crafters Companion. There are some lovely papers and toppers on the CD and all in really gorgeous colours. The CD is available as a One Day Wonder on Create and Craft right now.

The step by step instructions for this project can be found here

Camden Town

A quick post to let you know about the fab Camden Town CD's from Crafters Companion. Tomorrow on Create and Craft there is a One Day Special for the CD's. Here is a tag card I made from the CD and is on the Crafters Companion Blog along with some more cards from the DT.

Everything is printed from the Female CD, I have just added a doyley, pearls and some lace and ribbon.
This is another card from the Female CD. The images are really lovely and the sentiments are a bit different to most. Should add that there is also a Male CD which has really great images for men - not just sport!
Will share a step by step wall hanger from the same CD tomorrow.

Papercraft Essentials - Brayering

Hi All, quite excited this week when my copy of Papercraft Essentials magazine arrived.


My first full article is in this months issue, it is a beginners guide to Brayering which I really enjoyed making the cards for. There is a small picture of my cards on the cover and I was really pleased when I looked inside to see this...
 ... Editors favourite!!!!

There are four cards printed in the magazine along with the list of products and how to make them. These are the cards...

I made a couple of other cards for this article (not in the magazine)so I will show them as well

For all the cards I used Distress Inks to brayer with in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey. I also used Hunkydory Colour Me! card which I found worked really well with the Distress inks and blended very nicely. The stamping is done with Black VersaFine ink for clear detail.
Hope you like the cards,
