Well the postman has brought some more stuff this morning - an order I had placed with Joanna Sheen for some promarkers, a role of organza ribbon which was on offer, and a pack of angels wings in gold. The other pack was from Lili of the Valley for some of their cute stamps I ordered - I can't wait to play with both.
Well I've been playing with my nestibilities this morning - the scalloped circles and labels 1 (seeing as that's all I've got). I've been making some sentiments so I have them read to use for any project coming up. Here's how I did it:
Firstly, I created very feint circles on a word document and added text (various sentiments):
Secondly, I cut the sheet up with my craft cutter into smaller managable squares:
I then cut each individually with my 3 smallest scalloped circle making sure that it fit adequately round the sentiment.
Next, I put the following sandwhich together following the instructions from my nestabilities pack:
A plate, C plate, Die, Cardstock, B plate:
I heard from a colleague this morning who had passed all three of some accountancy exams she took just before Christmas - I made her a quick card, which my husband has dropped off:
For this I just used a ready folded card, embossed a piece of plain pink card with the paisley cuttlebug embossing folder. Tied some white grossgrain ribbon around and popped one of my new sentiment toppers on top - just a single layer here. Just a quick and simple card - that says exactly what it needs to!!!
I might repeat the process later increasing the size of the font - it's all trial and error...
I might share some finished projects off later but need to do my friend a birthday card and finish one for my husband which I started earlier.
Hope you enjoyed my project.
Bye for now
