About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Use Acetate

Good Morning All

Firstly I want to send Best Wishes and Hugs to Jennifer Swandells at Krafty Keepsakes who has been taken into hospital for complete rest,  'Get Better Soon Jen'

Saturday means it is Allsorts Challenge day and the theme is 'Use Acetate' and has been set by Helene.

I embossed my acetate using a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, I have never done this before and I was really pleased with the effect.  I put silver peel-off strips on the top and bottom edges to make it more visible.  

Inside, very CAS, a decoupage mono flower image and I stamped 'Thinking of You' straight onto the card.

On the outside I glued a black bow and added a couple of my tags tied on with twine.  I,m quite pleased with this one.
We have two sponsors this week -----
Crimson Cloud  will give a winner 3 packs of die cuts.
My Heart Pieces  will give 4 digis.

Hi Wendy
Lovely elegant card. I really must have a go with the acetate I bought a year ago but have never used.
Hope the lady in hospital is on the mend. x

Hi Wendy. Love the use of the acetate. Really good result. I've never embossed it myself so another thing to have a go of.
Hope the lady in question is ok.
Love Val x

wow that looks really cool! I do the same thing sometimes. but then go and paint over the inside of accetate with acryllic paint. Let it dry for a few second and then gently wipe the paint away. The inside of the circles fills with paint so you have clear accetate background with white spots =)
