Nestabilities Storage Problem Solved

How do you store your nestabilities, if your anything like me I have tried all sorts of different ways to effectively store these. Ive tried folders, cd cases and other weird methods all of which have been only partly effective. But I think I have finally cracked it, so I wanted to share with you my idea and if you think its absolute rubbish just let me know lol.

I bought a plain and simple little black cd wallet from Office World for £3.00 - just a open and fold type no zip to fumble with and a packet of photo magnetic pockets. I cut piecies of card to fit inside each cd pocket. Cut two inch strips from the magnetic pockets and fixed to the card using double sided tape. Each nestability set now sits nicely in each cd sleeve without moving around or falling out - great stuff.

All I need to do now is pull out the card and select the size of frame i want to use.

Making Flowers

Where did Feburary go, the year seems to be flying by already. I have actually been working very hard in Feb but just never got around to posting so now I need to catch up with my posts and upload all my projects lol. The first one I am going to share with you is a mothers day card I made, it was a simple project to do but very effective. Here is a list of materials used.

Tim Holtz distressed inks peeled paint for the leaves and faded jeans for the blue flowers. I just rubbed some of  the ink onto my  craft mat and then spritzed it with some water. I dabbed up the ink onto some card and left to dry. Using a flower punch I punched out about 30 tiny flowers.

The matt layer is done with bazzil card and a blue background paper which was created in photoshop elements (which I hope to upload as a feebie) the verse is printed off in Edwardian script font, for the corners used a daisy corner punch. Icicle stickles just to finish off the flower centres. Hope you like it and have fun playing around.

I tried really hard to get the verse into focus and this was the best i could get!!
