ArtyGirlz - Anything but a Card..... (Updated with link added)




Managed to do a bit of crafting late last night but didn't fancy card making so made this post it note folder, it is my 1st attempt so hadn't really planned what it was going to be like, just grabbed the 1st sheet of paper and experimented really. The paper is double sided "Crate Paper". I used my Fiskars Waterfall punch, Opal Liquid Pearls, flowers from Hero Arts and a bit of doodling with a black pen. I can see me making alot of these, they make great little gifts and I'm sure the next one will be alot quicker. This fits in with this weeks Artygirlz Challenge. I am so pleased to be back in the system so to speak, shouldn't be crafting at all as still not done all the unpacking and the house needs a good sortout, but for the sake of my sanity I dived in and went for it! Tomorrow I'll be back with my DT piece for the Secret Crafter, please do and try and pop on over to the challenge blog, we'd love for you to join in! 
Had a bit of a splurge in December and cant believe just how many new stamps and other bits I'd bought, must make it a mission to try them out soon, so hopefully back to regular blogging next week. 


Here is the link for the tutorial as requested http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=l3ocilOI6u8

Hope to do some blog hopping soon so apologies if I've not been to visit recently, not enough hours is the day but will get there in the end!!!
