Julia's blog. My desk is a bit untidy again this week - I had to make quite a few cards for a couple of orders recently and I always find you pull out lots of stuff to make all the different types of cards - so there is a collection of dirty stamps piling up at the right hand side and a few dies gathering up - I bought them recently and so just had to try them out - I used one of the Cheery Lynn butterfly dies and one of the Shapeabilities tags dies to make the wedding card below - its a bit overloaded with die cuts but you have to try out everything at once! I found it hard to get the label out of the die, so I have stuck some of the Quickutz ejection foam on, and it seems to be working better now.
The circular plastic thing is part of my circle cutter set I bought at the very first craft fair in the Kings Hall, Belfast, many years ago now - from a company called Creative Memories - they mostly did scrapbooking, but I bought these sets in circles and ovals and have been using them to make cards ever since.
