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.

Mix and match and added sewing

Another way to use up all the snippets and cut-outs which need to find a home. The added feature to this card is sewing, which I love to do ...
