First blog


Hi all and welcome to my first blog !  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to a safe and happy New Year.  My name is Jackie from Australia and I have discovered crafting.  I have been doing a bit of sewing, scrapbooking and cardmaking for a couple of years now and LOVE it.  Although (as you may have guessed) sometimes it is a bit of hit and miss.  I had a busy Christmas time making lots of card for loved ones.  

Sooo...I have decided that I am a little bit indecisive when crafting! I have so many things that I want to create that I don't know where to start.  I also have a habit of trying to fit too many techniques onto one card.  Hence I have created for myself a "card randomiser". I have created some chocolate wheels with different colours and crafting techniques, etc and when I feel like being crafty, I spin the wheel and take my chance ! Hence - a bit hit and miss !  I think I will start putting the results of these on this blog. You may see some interesting stuff ! I will still post it even if it turns out shocking!  Give you all something to grin about. :-).

Well, here is the first spin... 

I spun up the following:

Stampin up colours Mossy Meadow, Lost lagoon and crisp cantelope. Yikes !
Technique to be included somewhere on card : sewing
Stamp to be used: Heidi swapp zig zag background

Well, here is the result...best I could do at short notice !




I have used the mossy meadow stamped on the vertical strips with stamps from my stash, lost lagoon cardstock and sentiment is stamped in it, crisp cantelope is used on the heidi swapp zig zag background stamp.  Finally, the sewing is just peeking out from under the sentiment and strips. Not my best work, but fun nonetheless.  Hopefully I will get around to posting some videos here too sometime soon. 

Back with more fun another day!
