A Frollick of Fairies

Yes, that is what a collection of fairies is called - a frollick!

Had to go to The Range today today to get some silicone glue and door mat, but finished frugal February by not buying any other craft stuff - so that is 2 months now that I have resisted buying anything other than basics such as card blanks, DST & glue. I've managed to make over 40 cards just using up papers, dies, embellishments and sentiments  I already had in my stash.

Flowers, Leaves and a Moroccan Tile

Some more cards made with some old dies that have been sitting around unloved and unused for a while.

Experimented a bit using some Kraft card that was sitting at the bottom of the pile too!

Still on track with frugal February and I  have only bought card blanks and double sided tape so far this month!

Tim Holtz idea-ology Botanical

I've had this Tim Holtz idea-ology Botanical pack of die cut images for ages - the butterflies were all used up first.

 I'm now trying to come up ideas for cards to incorporate some of the other vintage plants & flowers now.
I've still got 25 out of the 83 images in the pack left!

Do you remember Dufex? Those detailed foiled toppers you could buy in sheets. Well, I found a couple of steam train images that I had lurking around for ages, so just had to use them up.

I've teamed them up with vintage travel background papers and tickets. So that's another small dent in the stash pile - at least Storm Dennis is a good excuse to stay in and craft this weekend!

Seeing Stars

A couple of cards for the men in my life made with  die cut stars. Ideal for men of any age.

Used some odd scraps of  coloured card up in the process too!

Twilight Makes

I'm still using up the background papers from the Hunkydory Twilight under the Sea pad that I bought last year

As well as the Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom pad that I bought back in June 2017! Despite making loads of cards with these papers, there are still loads left!

Frugal February

Well, I managed to get through January by only buying card blanks and double-sided tape. My mission for February is to do the same again and only buy basics - no magazines, no eBay bargains and no visits to The Works, The Range or Hobbycraft. Good job it is only a short month!

These two cards were made from pages of an old bird-watching calendar.

Clearly Besotted Roses

Here's another set of stamps and dies that have been sorely neglected! These are from the Clearly Besotted Merci Beaucoup set that I won back in June 2016

I've dug out some embossing folders that haven't been used for a while to team them up together and make a few more birthday cards
