Yes, I'm back today with a longer post so pop the kettle on!
It also happens to be a male dominated post!
To all Fathers today.
This was the card I created for my Dad last year using a variety of dies -
and a Keepsake Envelope embellishment.
Firstly before I forget I must answer some questions.
Yesterday, Carolyn asked whether the red flower featured was made using a die -
it was indeed and it is Blossoms Two.
Also Janice asked about the shop opening hours. We are coming to a decision
on that very soon - it may be particular days and hours but hoping to keep it simple!
Other new products arrived and Mitchell couldn't wait to get his hands on them.
More moulds which can be used with WOW embossing powders - this time hearts and bows.
(As always, if you would like to purchase just get in touch).
He recalled the method by mixing together Melt-It and this time he used a
glitter red embossing powder.
Heating from the bottom - keep hold of that peg it gets very hot!
Applying heat to top when pouring into mould.
Waiting for it to cool and set - it doesn't take long.
Turning it out of the mould.
And here it is - to be honest Mitchell instantly wanted to try other colours,
we agreed it would look very nice in white/cream.
Then he set about making a project, I mentioned tags were quite popular on this blog....!
And the picture showing he is really getting to grips with this crafting lark.
Applying adhesive - he has realised that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is the best!
His finished design - a simple little gift card.
I'm thinking pretty good for a crafter in training.
As for Elliott - he had a trip out yesterday.
We haven't ventured too far since his surgery but thought we would make a point
of visiting the Model Railway Show as it was local.
(Elliott loves trains!)
I discovered very quickly that this is a seriously expensive hobby to get into!
So far we have purchased some track, I thought that was a sensible starting point.
Take care friends and enjoy your Sunday.
