all crafted out

I haven't done any creating today - I think I'm all crafted out after yesterday!
Tonight I'm going to make some notelets to go in the swing-hinged box (from the Stamp with Us classes), and then I've got a lovely little gift (it could be useful as a 'teacher gift' for the end of term). I don't have any plans for the other box yet.
This is the first time I've done on-line classes and 'Stamp with Us' is proving to be great value for money. I paid £20 for one class a couple of weeks ago, so the £15 for SwU is great!
I've mainly used products from the Stampin' Up! mini catalogue to make these boxes. I love the way everthing co-ordinates so effortlessly..I WANT MORE!! No, seriously, I do! My April SU order is coming tomorrow though, so that's exciting.
I've resisted buying anything from QVC (well, apart from a new cutting mat...yawn...) which, considering it's 'Craft Day' is pretty good, I think.
Speaking of tomorrow, I've got to start to get to grips with doing a scrapbook for a colleague. I'm finally going to use all that K&Co 'Wild Saffron' stash that I've been hoarding - I mean saving! I've got some gorgeous felt ribbons that I brought back from the USA, I can't wait to use those. Julie is coming round to be my 'labourer' LOL , she'll be matting photos etc. So it'll be another busy day!


  1. very nice and beautiful blog!

    greetings frome germany, hamburg


  2. Hi Alison! Wow - gorgeous works of art there! I've not had a minute do do anything for Stamp with Us challenges!


  3. How did you mange to resist so many tempting offers on QVC craft day !!!!!
    I'm very proud that you only bought a cutting mat - I was dragged out for the day so missed most of it! I think it was my boyfriends attempt to save the credit card LOL!
    Have fun with your new order!
