Some Sewing

Morning guys,sorry not been back.  As you know both my dogs have been ill,and also had several anxious times with my daughter's pregnancy.

Anyway they are monitoring my daughter closely and baby should arrive this week. So on tender hooks at moment waiting for the call.

 However, in the meantime I have been sewing trying something new. so here are a few items I have created.

                                  This is the back of the bag which I had padded,then drew some lines and stitched to give it the quilted look. Then added a pocket.

                             The front of the bag is designed in craft artist,then printed onto canvas. The kit is from Gracie Tracie who designs,the most beautiful kits. So I took the elements,and made this picture.

                             This bag,I made from some material I had and made a bag for my filofax,and room for my tablet. Then stamped onto the front of the pocket.

                         This is another type of bag, I made once again using craft artist then,printed out and made the bag.

So bless you for looking have a wonderful day,and take care hopefully later this week I may be back with some news.

Morning guys hope you are all well.

Today is my last post for That Craft Place
and I would like to thank the DT for their,love support and encouragement whilst I have been part of the team.

I have been on a few DT's and I can honestly say with hand on heart that this team have been fantastic,wonderful bunch of crafters and mega talented too. However there is one special person I would like to personally thank and that is the owner of TCP and that is Lisa,she took me on when I needed it and she has been a real friend so I would like to thank her from the bottom of my heart for giving me this experience.  Love you hun and thank you so so much for everything.

Right now,for my final week,the theme is Tags,so I came up with this a tag book.

All papers are from TCP I have stamped on the papers on the front of the book,flowers are from my stash,die cuts tag,swirls and key.
Then I have added Lace,and some distress ink.

Now I also came up with this and she is called Tagatha,get it lol

 This is one of Lisa's dress forms,which i have painted,then used some crackle paint,and some mica on top. Then I made a skirt out of some fabric I have added a pocket for the tag to go into,then a few embellishments.

So if you would like to play along,at TCP this week,the link is here.

I shall be popping over to your blogs,more after this week,I have my daughter's,baby shower today my Little dog Alice has to have an operation on Thursday which I am praying will go well.

Morning guys sorry not been around,but I have been busy with decorating my bathroom,and nearly finished,my hall stairs and landing. Just tiny bit left to do and I am exhausted,but it does look great.

Anyway the theme this week at That Craft Place is,anything but a card,so I came up with this using one of the frames,from TCP.
Plus I also altered an old,book.

So here is my creations,for this week.

I painted,the frame with,paints,and added,some glue for texture waited for it to dry,then painted it with black,gesso then rubbed,some of it away,to give it an rusty effect. Then stamped,an image  onto card,and placed in the middle. Then added leaves also from TCP.

This was an old book which I played with and altered some of the pages,and made the cover giving it an aged effect.

So that is,it from me,for today if you would like to play,and see the stunning samples,from That Craft Place and play along the link is,HERE  

Have fun hugs Cherylxxxxxxx

Morning guys hope you are well.

over at That Craft Place the theme this week is alter something,now I had some chipboard from TCP just 2 pieces left and I decided to make a book with a spine.

So here is my altered book,a few pictures of step by step pictures.

Sorry its such a lot of pictures,just thought you may like to see,the step by step process. I used,some distress inks,and the papers are from TCP,along with the,oval piece of,chipboard on the front. I stamped onto,the board,and again using inks,to match,the rest. To close,the book I used a piece of vintage fabric,I frayed it one side,then used pinking shears on the other side. Took some velcro,to use to close the book.

So there you go,if you would like to play along with us again this week,the link to the blog is HERE

Take care guys,love hugs Cherylxxxxxx

Morning guys,I apologize for my late DT post to my teamies,but I have had the most awful toothache,for the last week,went to the dentist as emergency. He gave me some antibiotics,which did not work. Therefore I had to go back yesterday for another emergency appointment as the pain was unbearable it turned out that I had a large abscess and it had gone into my bones,in my mouth. So he had to put me to sleep,and remove it. I am now on,400mg of antibiotics instead of 75mg. I am still very sore,and if I drink anything I have to use a straw,as its still painful. But never mind,now here is my DT project for this week.

The theme this week is Charming,so I altered this frame using,rub and buff from TCP . Its now my best work as not been,well.

so if you want to play in this weeks challenge the link is HERE

Film Inspired

Hi Guys,this week at That Craft Place the theme is Film Inspired,well I thought long and hard about this.

And I came up with this..........

Around the world in 80 Days

I took a piece of Chipboard,painted it with Gesso around the sides,then took some gesso mixed with salt,made it into a paste,then added it to the sides of the chipboard.

Then before it had settled,I tore some,paper and placed it underneath the paste.Then added some crackle paste,then when dry brushed some,black paint over it.

The lady is from a CD I have,I then added some,flakes to the balloons,then decoupaged some of them. Then finished off with one of TCP film strips.

So if you would like to play along at That Craft place,the link is HERE

Also I have a wee group on FB and I started a book swap were,ten,of the girls choose a theme for there books,then each member made a page each. These were then all sent to me,and I am binding them for them and sending them back to each member of the group.

Here is one of them I designed all the covers,for the girls this one is fantasy which contains 10 pages from all the girls of Fantasy.

Also this is a card,I have made using one of Lisa's new digital images over at That Craft Place
