Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Bag instructions.

As promised here are the instructions for the bags I posted yesterday. I couldn't resist decorating a few as I have some birthdays coming up which I can use them for.

Nifty hey? And a good way to use all those scraps

First cut your paper to 21 cm x 30 cm. Then score the long edge at 14 cm and 28 cm.

Turn and score halfway down at 2 cm and all the way down at 19 cm. Cut away the shaded areas. The angles don't have to be an exact degree. Then fold the dotted lines and glue.

 Cut the flap in a curve shape with fancy scissors and you're done.

I live a tiny walk away from Abakhan who are having a pre sale evening tonight with cake and wine so guess where I'm going??
