Monday Make with Creative Expressions

Oh how I have missed doing these blogs! It is so nice to be back in the swing of things. For those of you that don't know I have undergone one of the most stressful processes a human can go through. I moved house! Check out my blog from yesterday HERE for a peak at the new place.

On to the reason for being here now. I have unpacked most of my crafty stash and of course I simply had to have a dabble with some lovely products from Creative Expressions. It is the holiday season, buckets and spades, seagulls and sandcastles. Also, I am lucky to be living on the coast now so the stamps and products I have chosen to showcase are both seasonal and personal. Hope you like them as much as I do?

I used the Lighthouse embossing folder for the background with a piece of Tim Holtz Core'dinations card which I sanded back slightly.

The stamps are from the Singles range, which are foam mounted and pre-cut. I used the Lighthouse and one of the seagulls from the Marina Bay set. These stamps are so easy to use and they produce a fantastic image. For me it was all about getting something done quickly and perfectly first time. I had missed crafting so much during the move! I simply stamped the lighthouse with black ink and coloured it with markers. A little bit of decoupage, a neat little nautical knot and job done! A nice simple card but I am sure you will agree a very pretty card. Perhaps one for a man?

This is a quick blog today as I have a lot of catching up to do, not just craft stuff. There is still lots of household unpacking to do as well as quite a few more craft related boxes need opening up and the contents need to be put in their new home. I found a great second hand furniture place in town that seems to have a good supply of office furniture. What do you think of the units I bought the other day? They came from an opticians. I love the shallow drawers, great for storing ink pads and trays of embellishments.

Right, I must away and get on with 'stuff'. See you soon for more adventures with Creative Expressions!

Take care, Kim xxx
