Good Friday :)

Ive spent the last two days making 'stuff' with my sister so im on a creative high right now! lol I have so much stuff littered around the house that im running out of space unless i start to get rid of some bits....hence im going to start looking for craft fairs and ask in a couple of shops if they sell cards - the worst they can only say no :)

I made another one of the folding book sets but this time instead of cards and envelopes, i included Sakura pens and a set of note cards :) As of last night i am teaching a class next Saturday on how to make these and other boxes but will post a quick tutorial for something similar after that - sorry to do it that way but the class has been requested.Here is an example of why i need to practice my colouring in!! I love it when i blog hop and come across the most wonderfully coloured images.........sit down, try it myself and i just cant grasp the whole colour/shading/texture thing. ARGH! Sit me down with some blank paper and i will create something but stick an image in front of me and i cringe.........what pens/pencils/chalks/inks do you use??

Have a lovely Easter weekend :)


  1. Wow Debbie those folding book sets are beautiful. Can't wiat for th tutorial. I would love to learn how to make this.Great practice on your colouring. It's not so bad. Hope you have a wonderful Easter! TFS


  2. These are so pretty. Your coloring is not bad. Keep at it girl, you will be a pro in no time.

    I myself am no pro but I am learning. I really want some Copics but I can't afford them so I usually use Prisma colored pencils and Goo Gone (or odorless mineral spirits) with a blending stump.

    Once in while I will use my BIC Mark It markers. They are alcohol based like copics but there are only like 38 colors and I have heard they do not blend as easy as the Copics.

    Best of luck to you with getting your stuff into shops and doing craft fairs. Your work is wonderful!!
