Second part of configurations

Hi all

here is the second part of my Birthday configuration box hope you all like.

This is the next step I have added the small left box and found a cute Elli to add to the box and distressed the edges using the spiced Marmalade distress ink and weaver brush. I have also added in the bottom right box a polymer glow in the dark steampunk monster I made (the 1st one nearly set my house on fire my beautiful range cooker nearly went up in flames oopppsss). In the top box I have added a triple embossed number 7.

Here is the final piccy of the finished box as you can see I have added a perty bunting. So cute. And you can add anything you want and make it uber cute and fun. Well I hope you all love it. Love and bugs andreax

Configurations. Birthday style

Hi all

well the great weather has not done much for my crafting but I felt very guilty after a few people at the craft club yesturday (great to see you all) said I had not blogged for a wee while sorry all, I have put in extra work today promise!!!!

My little boy Logan is going to be 7 very soon and I have decided as many of you want to do a Tim Holtz configuration bax but don't want to alter it too much, to do a happy Birthday one. This would make a great gift or fancy card? Or even be geat for a birth of a baby.
I have done a 7 year old boy one here it is!!!

As you can see this is the first part done with all the inner boxes removed. I have distressed the edges with cut and dry and distress ink, in Weathered wood and Shabby shutter. I have chosen some paper from my stash and a little photo of Logan.

This is the second step, for this I have cut strips of the yummy paper to fit on all the outer edges and the back of the confiuration box.

This is the Third step and the last I am going to blog today you will all have to come back tomorrow to see the final bits. For this I have added two configuration boxes to the bottom, a small and rectangle one. for the small box I reversed it and added a picture on the front then went round it with spiced marmalade distress ink, this time with a dreamweaver brush. Then I cut and glued paper strip to the inner parts of the rectangle and distressed the edges to create a rusty look with Spiced Marmalade again.

So hope you all like and will pop back tomorrow to see what the rest looks like. Don't forget you can follow us on Facebook too where Ali has some offer codes!!!!

Love and Bugsxxxxxxx

Play play play....

Hi all

no I haven't hidden away under the duvet in the horror that is the kids holidays aahhhh. I have been very busy, sorting hubby and kids so I haven't blogged for ages sorry all :(
Baby Harper is doing great he is only still 9 weeks old and is sitting and staying and doing so so well. Stu (hubby) loves him, has a new baby.

Anyways I have done a few cards with the new stamps Ali has, here is the first one 'Play' it was great using the pastel colours and banners. I had lots of fun doing this one as it was one of those cards that comes together with no thought. I love those types especially when it is hot outside.
Ali and Iain saw lots of you at Ally Pally last week and are off to Dublin tomorrow, they are currently staying in a field in a log type cabin (probably more like a shed) with a pub close by (so lets hope Iain doesn't get lost in the field on the way back from the pub) somewhere at the top of Scotland!!!!
Love and bugsxxxxxx
