This image is from the every bunny stamp set which i coloured with watercolour wonder crayons and a blender pen to give him a vintage faded look.  I then mounted him up with various dies and punches and finished it off with a length of so saffron ribbon; and of course i added an itty bitty flower.

woyww? March 26th 2013

Good morning Dear Reader and all woyww’ers; do you still have snow?! Some one needs to remind Mother Nature that we would like some Spring please!!  The snow is finally starting to melt here but apparently we have more to come at the end of the week…….Joy!  O well i can’t control the weather but i can craft and i plan to make my own version of spring this week by making lots of springy {is that a word?!} projects. 

But for now here is my desk as it ends Tuesday; it will see no action apart from a tidy up as we have family over today.

Practically the same as it was last week but with a load of Stampin’ Up! party invites and what not's dumped on top as i decided to spring clean all weekend starting with our bedroom where i found i had loads of craft bits that had somehow got up there so they needed to come back down to the craft area.  I drove Mr.C potty as always when i get bit by the tidy bug as i am normally the poster girl for organised chaos, but when get the urge to purge the clutter i go all out but i also have a habit of not finishing each room before starting another! lol so once he had pulled me up on that and we’d finished the upstairs before starting on my craft area i managed to set myself up a cutting and big-shotting or should that be shooting(?) area.  The new computer desk means that the girls craft stuff has vacated my sideboard so i have organised it much better.

So i now have my big shot all ready to go with my punches next to it, i have my trimmer, guillotine, and scoreboard in one drawer and all my dies and embossing folders in the other, its the perfect height for cutting and die cutting and if i lift my big shot away the lamp makes for a perfect place for taking my blog photos.

Well that's my workspace for this week i shall go and tidy my main desk area before the school run so that i am free to hop round blogs until my grandparents arrive for lunch; i hope to get round as many as possible but at the very least to every one who visits me.

Until Next time

Easter Milk Cartons

Morning Dear Reader; i thought i would add in a few bonus posts as due to my computer troubles of the last few weeks i have quite a few Easter projects to share with you before the weekend.

So here’s today’s project;

I have shown you these earlier before they were finished but i thought that i would show you them up-close.

mini milk carton small easter gift birds of a feather Check it out at craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 24-03-2013 08-58-57

These where cut from the subtles colour family using the mini milk carton big shot die, the DSP is the birds of a feather stack which i have said before i am totally in love with so expect to see more of it! :) The sentiment is from the every bunny stamp set which i punched with the oval punch and back with a scallop oval an flower punched using the itty bitty punch set that is 3 little punches perfect for little accents.  These were filled with 3 Galaxy Caramel mini eggs but they can fit a variety of chocolate treats in them.

Stippled Blossoms

Afternoon Dear Reader; how's the weather where you are?  We have a reasonable amount of snow at the moment i really wish would go as i am really over winter i am bored of wearing tons of layers and i want to get my washing out on the line and smelling of fresh air rather than tumble dryer sheets!! I know easily pleased eh? lol But the cold weather does have advantages …. time to craft! As if we need an excuse!! lol

So on to today’s project; 

stippled blossoms flowers card easter simple Check it out at craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 24-03-2013 09-00-35

It is an Easter card using the lovely Stippled Blossoms stamp set which is just the most beautiful flower.  Its a 2-step stamp set meaning that there is a stamp for the main block of the back ground, which is best stamped in a lighter colour and then another stamp to add the detail in in a darker colour.  I hand cut the flowers and leaves once i had stamped them before arranging on a whisper white panel that was then mounted on a Lucky Limeade card blank.  I think that this could easily be adapted for any occasion just by changing the sentiment.

I shall be back soon with more Easter Projects

Happy Birthday and Thank You

Well Hello Dear Reader, today is my blogs 2nd Birthday i can’t believe i have been blogging for 2 whole years this also means that my love affair with Stampin’ Up! started 2 years ago now as well!  In that time it has many designs as i have tried to find one that i truly love, i think I'm there now as the new header shows most of the crafts i love including lace, paper craft and sewing.

download

I would like to say thank you to all that read my blog and comment i love when you comment it feels like I'm not just talking to myself.  And thank you also to all that follow me it means so much that you like what i create and share with you.

In the last two years my life has changed so much and a lot of that is due to stamping, by joining Stampin’ Up! i have met lots of lovely people some of whom are now some of my dearest friends and who i could not imagine life with out now.  But i have also met people within the community that i live who i would not have met otherwise; i knew absolutely no one when i moved to Saffron Walden apart from Mr.C’s family and by introducing people to what i do and what i can offer them i have met lots of new people and increased my social life ten-fold!  If it had not been for the fact that i was on the Stampin’ Up Demo finder; i would never have known about the great crop i now attend a few villages away i am so grateful for that as it is a fab place to go and craft and the people are so lovely and welcoming.

So in short its been fab I've loved it thanks for reading and here’s to another year :)

I shall be back tomorrow with a new project for you.

Until then

woyww? March 19th 2013

Hello Dear Reader; today is Wednesday {well 5pm Tuesday night but my desk won’t change between now and then :) } so that is when crafters from across the globe bare all and show their desks in varying degrees of the creative process.  If you would like to know more hop along to the queen of this massive blog hop Julia at the Stamping Ground, but do join if you can its is great fun and highly addictive.

woyww march 20th craftylittlemoos.blogspot.com Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 18-03-2013 18-58-04

So here is my now two desks as due to the computer issue we have had to have a desktop and so that meant a new desk so in this picture you can see both.  I am currently sitting typing at the computer under the stairs which is actually a desk from my old room at my grandparents house and do you know that now that the computer is in another room i am actually getting more work done as i don't keep getting distracted by pinterest!!
Not a lot on my desk at the moment a  few stamp sets as Mr.C had me stamp a wooden box for him to keep all his seeds in that also looked nice on the shelf as the shed would be too cold and damp a place for the seeds (?! so he says i don’t know!) i plan to have a big tidy up as i did a craft fair at the weekend and the boxes are not unpacked yet and then i can get on with preparing for my next events.  Also its craft night at mine again today so i shall have to be tidy so that we can all have somewhere to sit down! :D  If you would like to see the results of my suitcase boot fair find you can find it on yesterdays post.

I am planning to hop around to as many desks as i can today.

Until next time

Up-cycled Vintage Suitcase

Hello Dear Reader, i am finally back with you a day later than i had planned i am sorry but you have no idea how much you have on your computer that you just cant function without until you have reloaded it all back on!  But it is done now and i am back with you my postings after today will continue as normal on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and maybe with a few bonus ones if you’re lucky :)
So my project to share with you is the vintage suitcase that i had told you about a few weeks ago that i had found at a boot sale that Mr.C had not wanted me to buy…. Well i did and i got to work with my staple gun and here it is as a display stand for a craft fair that i attended on Sunday in Chelmsford.

Here you can see it is all full with some of my wares for the day and i have just noticed that one of the cards had fallen down but this is the only photo i had taken as i had forgotten my camera so you will have to forgive me the poor photo. 
As you can see i have completely upholstered the inside with fabric as it had a wooden frame that i could staple into.  Then i raised the height of the bottom layer with a trusty cardboard box cut and shaped to fit the base.  I then covered a board as i would for a notice board without the ribbons as a flat surface for my gift boxes to rest on.  The lid of the suitcase has been turned into a no pin notice board with Stampin’ Up! gorgeous vintage faceted designer buttons and large pearls with add a bit off sparkle {and cover the staples ;) lol}
I will be back later in the week with details of my Easter gift baskets,  But for now just a quick reminder that Sale-a-Bration ends in 3 days so if there are any products you NEED from this fantastic promotion please be sure to get your order to me by 1pm Friday afternoon so that i can get it processed for you before the deadline.
Until next time

A brief {hoprfully!?!} break in usual service

Hello Dear Reader, unfortunately over night my laptop has gone  to the office in the sky and i have no access to my files at the moment so i cannot blog.  Hopefully Mr.C's very clever techie friend will be able to at least save the files but the computer is very much dead.  So i am sorry that i will not be blogging at the moment until i can get a new laptop or at the very least borrow one as i have very limited access at the moment.  Hopefully i will be back soon and normal service can be resumed.  On the plus side i cannot lose a few hours by just 'popping on' to pinterest so i should get all my projects finished :) lol
All Classes will continue as normal and i am still able to take orders for Stampin' Up! so that will not be effected by this blip.

Until next time
