Grid for Home Decor Project

This is one of my newest Grids for Home Decor projects. I chose the tones of orange/turquoise/shades of brown/green and black.

This is what it looks like when it has been framed. The size is 12"x8,5". They look very decorative in a small space, like just above a low cupboard for example. It is not for a huge wall as the only piece as it looses itself in that way.

I am thinking of doing a give-away of one of these very shortly on my other blog. The color theme will be all shades of blue, red and brown. But that is still a surprise.

Thanks for popping by. Oh by the way, if ever you feel like making one, they make perfect presents for birthdays or even weddings. I make these with butterflies too, perfect way to use up the scraps. To me, its like making puzzles.

Grid-Tag card

Because I love making them, another grid card, this time with tags, three in a row, vertically placed.

I chose coral, pink, grey and brown. I used the scraps I had in my basket. Unfortunately the scraps are diminishing in such a fast rate! But I'm glad I can find a home for everything I have and hardly throw anything away.
My tags are 8cm x 4cm and my card size is 13cm x 8cm, which for me is the standard size I usually use.

Have a lovely week of crafting!

I won't keep you waiting any longer, I just got back from an eye-test. Before I went I had already picked out two names. I put all the names (and two times for those that visit this blog often)  in a cup, as there was nobody in the house I had to pick the winners myself.

First of all I picked out Laura-Jane, who said to have no desire for the stamp, so she gets a card, and then I had to pick another, which was Maria from Russia who will get the stamp.

So there you have it ladies. I wish I could do more, but its the luck of the draw!

O.K. so I just now picked a third name and that is... KAILASH - she will be getting a card from me too.

Congrats ladies!

A Tag-grid design and a give-away

As I have said in the past, a grid design can be all shapes and sizes. So this time I'm introducing the tag-grid, made from scraps. 

These are so enjoyable to make and they give a home to all the little bits of paper, embellishments etc. that you may have. I hardly have to throw anything away.

Now, I have a give-away. The following photo was on my post of 1st April. I would like to give this stamp to anyone who could find a use for it. No use keeping it if I'm not going to use it. That is not what stamps are for.

So, if you are interested, leave a comment and I will pick a name on Wednesday. I will also be sending one of my inchie cards with it.
Good luck.

Watercolored inchies

I cannot seem to use this stamp, other than in an inchie card way, so....

Using distress inks and water.
