Hiya Everyone
Hope you are all ok
Have you been tuning in to the Pick of the Week over on Create and Craft
Amazing Folders huh?!

Today I have a make to share using the Hessian Folder again :)
A total contrast from yesterdays design 
I used black cardstock and coredinations cardstock, I distressed the edges with a tool, and layered the cardstocks up. I used lots of flowers from the classique dies collection and the Die'sire leaf swirl, the stamp is another from the new collection, pearls and ribbon from my stash, and I finished it with a little spray from spray and sparkle.

The first make I have to share is using the 
Dry Stone Wall Folder
Don't tell anyone but this one is my ultimate fave from the New collection
 (well for today anyway looooooooool)
It is an absolute dream to work with and it just makes me want to craft and craft
I stamped some centura pearl with some of the stamps using a black ink,to give it a dirty wall look,  then I used some distress inks to coat the whole piece of card, I run the whole piece through the Ebosser in the folder. I punched a random hole through the wall and mounted it onto black card, I used another of the stamps to place over the hole, the embellies are from my stash.
I really loved how it finished up :)

I got had an appt with my Niall at OT this morning, seems he does need some help with his 
co-ordination skills and another professional I have onside in agreeing that his sensory needs cannot be met in mainstream schooling, this is turning into so much work, because they do not seem to listen to me! so annoying! I treated him to his fave saus roll and the took him back to school, I missed the bus and got caught in the rain - ARRRRRRRRRRRRGH, Straight home, heating on, pjs on and a nice cuppa lol

Today I have another Tweedies make to share with you

The Tweedies...

Hiya Everyone
Hope you are all doing ok :) Its Friday whooooopie

Today I have another Tweedies make to share with you
I have also made a tute on this one :)
You will find lots of goodness over in the Crafter's Companion Shop

Go to the shaped card section on the cd rom and print out the reel shaped card twice, either print onto satin finish and mount onto centura pearl and cut it out or print directly onto centura pearl for stabilty

Cut around one of the shapes and draw around it onto a piece of A4 Centura pearl, then move it along and draw a third one (do two of these)
Then Cut it out and score the lines

It should look like this

Using the designs on your remaining pieces you printed, cut and stick these to your card base

Take one of the ribbon reels and draw around it on the back of a piece of patterned paper, I used a piece from the Quilted section on the cd rom, cut this out and mount it to your card base

I added a piece of patterned paper from the CD rom to the middle panel

You can decorate this as you choose and add the second 3 reel piece you cut out to stick over the back to conceal your workings

Hope this was ok
Thanks for popping by
Have a GREAT Day
