September Calendar page

woweeee, September in 2 and a bit hours, where does all that time disappear to. On Saturday I will have been married for 23 years (you wot, I know I am too young and awesome to have been locked away in marriage for so long . . LOL).  Dinner is booked for the local pub and perhaps a drunken stumble home, hehehe.

Being so organised before returning to the dreaded work I got my September page done, under the water theme with the fab mermaid stamps from stampotique, ( have you seen the new stamps, oh my I have an urge to buy lots and lots of them)  : )

and my finished August page.

Was aiming to be no 1 link on Kate's page (she who organises us sad junkies/floozies/stalkers), but she hasnt done the link yet, is too busy showing off her skills using the new stampotique stamps (green eyes burn into her page) LOL, Love ya really oh supreme one . . . xxxx

Nearly time to go back to work . . . :(


Well my two weeks off is nearly done, truth be told it hasnt been the best holiday I've ever had, there has been pain, PMT, teenage hormones, crap weather and that's just me (LOL). I have however managed to get some craft shopping done, visited Pickleberry and she had the Dina Wakeley stamps, I just couldn't resist them, when I got some time I made a master board using distress paints and masks, cut out some tags from them and decorated with my new stamps, I'm so impressed how good they look, I think it must be because the stamps are just so brilliant. I'd cut out four tags all together so played around with some stampotique and holtz stamps as well.


I had one card to do for my baby bruv's birthday, really hard to think of something different to do for male cards, doesn't help that his wife Debs is also a crafter, so a bit more pressure to produce something she will like too, doubly hard when the mojo has left the building and refuses to return, so this is what I ended up with, havent rung for a comment yet, tee hee.

Also over hols have had major blogger probs, so I have been reading all your posts but have not been able to comment, grrrrrr.  My photos have loaded ok today so cross fingers again that this will post.

Right next two days are going to have lots of allocated crafting time, have bribed mojo back into building by buying some new stamps and ordering some more of the new distress stains, check out Craft Obsessions they are on offer at £3.89 and free postage over £10, a bargain me thinks. So gonna try a challenge or two and make a couple more cards for upcoming dates.

So nice to be back blogging.

September Craft Stamper

The front cover of Craft Stamper grabbed my attention as soon as a I saw it, and I just had to have a go, co-incidentally I had just bought the Paperbag Studio set, so I flicked through to find the right page, and found it was the lovely Jo F-Y whose article it was, really simple instructions nice and clear to follow, I was really pleased with the result which I turned into a card for my new managers birthday, she is a lovely person and I am very fond of her already, so nice to have a manager that cares.

I then had an idea for using it for this weeks Octopode Factory challenge "girls", didnt work out quite like I had imagined, but hey ho, its my zombiefied Alice . . . LOL

August Calendar

Wow haven't the months gone quickly, hope this month goes slower as we have our two weeks off in it, only 5 more work days, not that  I'm counting LOL. 

August has quite a big blank area on the left hand side, dont know if I'm gonna fill it in or not, shall see what inspiration comes. If you want to see more of these pages check out Kates blog, she who is responsible for starting this. LOL
My finished July page, I love the colour of this one, in fact I think that it is my fave so far.

BTW this has taken me all week to get it posted, grrrrr to blogger, sort out your problems please.

Happy August everyone.   x
