visit Julia HERE. First of all I need to say a big thank you to all those who gave advice about my doily die last week, and in particular Mary Anne, who was very helpful indeed. I tried a bit of everything - I wiped the die and the card all over with a tumble dryer sheet, then used waxed paper (well it was actually silicon coated baking paper as my local Tesco didn't have waxed paper) between the die and the card. It all cut out really well and afterwards I just needed to tap sharply on the back of the die and all the wee 'bits' fell out - now wasn't that a great success!
My desk is even more cluttered today than normal - I'm still trying to do a few things for the craft stall in November so I bought some small jamjars yesterday to cover with felt to make into cupcake style pincushions (I hope - haven't actually tried this yet). Then I bought some Ruffles yarn to make a scarf - I have lots in blues and greens but my friend told me last year I needed to do some in reds, purples and pinks (green and blue isn't everybodys favourite colour!!). The messy pile to the right is still waiting to be tidied away, after making some cards recently.
