The best little gadget..

I thought it was lost - but I have just tidied out my craft area, and uncovered my envelope template! :) These are distributed in Australia by, and I see they are sold online by . It's called the Kreate-a-lope and you can make envelopes out of any sort of paper, without measuring or cutting. Here are some pics to show you mine - needs a wipe over with some tea tree oil me thinks! I have the "series 1" and the smaller of the 2 templates in this set, will just fit onto a sheet of A4 paper. I tried making an envelope out of striped vellum...hmm not too sure.

More non-papercraft posts are coming...

Scraps of green ribbon..

As promised, here is what I did with the little offcuts of olive green ribbon - looks like grass I thought. More of the chipboard pieces used too! A Birthday card for my nephew.

More frequent posts coming soon...:)

Back from Easter...have chipboard

Hi, back from the Easter break now. Have just gotten around to using a box of chipboard shapes and letters that I received for Christmas :) Wondered what on earth to do with them! Here's what I have come up with. As you can see it's DCWV Green Stack Chipboard - each piece is a few mm's thick, gives you a nice relief effect.

For the birthday card, I used a couple of ribbons and alphabet stickers from my stash. Can you understand my cryptic birthday message?
  • I'm going to add a ribbon to the 'bear hug' tag, and put it in a mini envelope on the front of a card.
  • there are little bitty scraps of that olive ribbon that I am finding a use for...stay tuned.
