WELCOME

This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Demo Day at Flutterby Crafts

Well, just got back home from a demo at Flutterby Crafts just down the road in Thatcham. It was a Trimcraft demo by the lovely Tracy Watkiss.

She had some beautiful samples and made every effort to show us how we could make them ourselves, and even made us templates so we could remember how they were done when we got home.

Today I learnt how to make an origami box and lid from two sheets of 12x12 paper, and an origami frame book to go inside. There was also an origami card with a diamond pocket on the front for the envelope-like flap to tuck into. That will definitely be on my 'to be made' list. Looks a lot more difficult to make than it actually is. (It's an easy card to make, isn't it Tracy!) One of my favourites though was a little book that had lots of flaps that can also be made from 2 sheets of 12x12 card. Tracy had made it with the Once Upon A Time card and was beautiful, no, delicious!!!

Haven't got any photos to add to this blog, but hopefully will have some once I've attempted the cards and books.

Naturally enough, I had to spend SOME money (would be rude not to!) and treated myself to the Goody Bag, the two different types of Laura Ashley papers from Dovecraft and some stamps. I look forward to using them after my in-laws have been and gone next month. (The dreaded pack away - I'm not looking forward to tidying everything away so they can have the use of the spare room).

Well, I'll head back to my recording of the Andy Murray match - I'm an hour behind so no-one tell me the result!!
