Catching up.....

I have already started my quest for the perfect quick and easy Christmas card. I want something without bulk, and quick to make. Even when I find it, I know I will be bored after half a dozen

This first one used a memory box stencil and Sissix snowflake, sprinkled with a little frantage embossing powder


This one was done with a Memory Box die......far too fiddly for mass producing although it looks simple....



While I was having my 'lazy August' I did Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 103 class, now those of you who know my style know that mixed media type projects really aren't my scene, but I thoroughly enjoyed the class, what an excellent teacher Tim is. I messed around a little and was really pleased with this next card that I showed on the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page, where we have a regular Friday feature on cards for guys. 





I must thank so many of you who took the time to subscribe to Max's YouTube channel. He was over the moon, his subscribers have jumped from a paltry three to 39. you really did make his day - and mine too actually, thank you all

On the Fiskarettes facebook page, which I run for Fiskars, everytime I post, it shows me as 'Fiskarettes UK' not Enfys. A lot of people over there know it's me however, and if I post one of my projects, they often mention me by name in their comments - 'love this Enfys' etc. So last week, a person asked rather plaintively 'Who or what is an Enfys?'

This led to quite a conversation after I posted a photo (the new one on the sidebar here of me with Kiki and Monty) and said that it's me, Enfys, pronounced Envis

The long and short of this is that apparently IKEA have a product called an Envis. What is it? A gorgeous sparkly chandelier? A really comfy sofa to curl up on? A snuggly feather duvet to cuddle up to at night? A stylish new fabric?

 No, it's a pair of silicone pastry brushes. I feel quite insulted 

See you tomorrow x

  1. LOL - Sorry, Enfys! Sometimes things change in translation but we all know how wonderful you are, and what gorgeous cards you make! Love the soft background on the snowflake, and the second it a stunning, bold statement to die for :o) Well, OK, I don't really wanna die but you know what I mean...

  4. Awww ... now Enfys (Envies), please don't feel badly about the name similarity to a silicone pastry brush. Allow me to share that I actually own a couple of those brushes and use mine mostly for basting foods, which gives them the most amazing tastes and flavors. And ... since I consider you a woman of great taste and amazing flavor, I believe it actually fits. (Okay, so that may be a bit of an around the block sort of way to make the name fit ... but still, it works, don't you think?) *wink* *wink* BTW, I love your cards, particularly the snowflake card, which is gorgeous!

  6. The first one is perfect, but I am like you and get bored with the same design repeats

  7. Your posts always bring a smile to my face! Love the snowflake card and the Tim Holtz bird card is really great. I'm not a fan of mixed media either. I have missed your craftiness!!!

  8. Oh, now this has to change! LOLOL. We'll have to invent something fab, and name it after you. I watched Max's video today, and could tell he was really excited. I actually get a kick out of him banging away in his little world. Not much a gamer beyond the odd solitaire. But I did enjoy watching max collecting coal n wood.

  10. Fabulous cards Enfys. I love the Tim Hlotz bird card. I've signed up for a class, thinking I'd have lots of time to do it, but no chance yet sadly. Cathy x
