Baubles - and Bows!

It's my turn to post on the Craftwork Cards blog again today, I am in a festive mood again, pop over to see what I have been up to and leave a comment.... 


Then pop back here to leave your name and on Wednesday I will draw a random winner to receive this gorgeous paper bows pad, full of the most lovely paper bows in different sizes, there is a lot of inspiration on how to use them over on the Craftwork Cards blog and Pinterest



I am taking an online course with Tim Holtz, Creative Chemistry 102. I did the first course last year, and although I am not really into mixed media (I love to see it, I'm just not very good at doing it...), I really enjoyed it. That chap certainly knows his stuff when it comes to talking about the different properties of inks, etc. He comes up with really cool techniques which I am dying to try out, but first I had to find the stuff, hidden in little corners all over the house. Alcohol inks, stains, glitters, distress embossing - all stuff I don't use every day so it has been a marathon to gather it all together. This is as far as I got - meanwhile, other, more organized people are busy posting the fabulous creations they have made with the really cool stuff they learned on the course from the master inker. All I can say is, they must be a lot more organized than me, and even with the great man himself explaining patiently what I should do with all this stuff, I still have to squint at each label, and watch the video again before I know what to do with it...


So this weekend is earmarked as a 'just for me' crafty fest. I have finished my Heartfelt Creations submissions and just need to photograph them and get them sent off, Monday will be magazine commission day, but tomorrow is a getting inky day - if I can find the right ink!

See you tomorrow

  5. That bauble card is stunning Enfys.

    Loved all your super creations over on Craftwork Cards - that little box is adorable.

    Enjoy your "102" - I bumped into a fellow crafter last weekend who was frantically dashing round the craft shops trying to find some of the bits she needed for 102 and was panicking that she wouldn't manage to get everything.

  8. I've pooped over and commented. Looking forward to hearing how you get on with the course - I see lots of work inspired by Tim and really admire it but when I try to do that kind of thing myself it just looks a mess.

  25. Left ya some love over at Craftworks! Love all the projects! Going to give those pinecones a go!
    I so relate to your TH issue! I have so much of his stuff but don't have anything organized so hunting for things I "know" I have takes more time than the project!
    Thanks so much for the chance to win! I love that bow pad! Great concept.
