Running out...

Happy Sunday,

Today is the last leg of the Crafters Companion marathon with me being in the evesham store today again demoing and playing.  I have titles todays post Running Out because I am running out of projects to post.  Tomorrow will  see the first sneak peak for the launch of my new Die Collection on Hochanda tuesday night at 6pm!  This means that I have been manically making samples using the new range and have got to the point where I am running out of projects I can share on the blog!

I hope you don't mind but today I thought I would share a couple of tags I made over the last couple of months using my sandwich box die set and the starflower dies and leaves.

The first one is made using silver gilt and the second using up a piece of scrap card I cleaned my brayer on.  I love using this scrap card for flowers as the colours are so random and make unique flowers.

Join me from 6am tomorrow to see the first reveal from my new Gerbera Daisy collection.



  1. They're very sweet. Looking forward to your launch this week. Hope it all goes well. I'm sure it will! xxx

  2. Hi John

  4. Morning John, beautiful samples as always today.

    I must be honest that when I read the name of your new collection I thought is was a little typo but no I was wrong, I googled it and found that it is spelt correctly and what a lovely flower it is too, looking forward to this new release, not long to wait now.

    Enjoy your last day at the CC store

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    Great tags and a marvellous way to use up scraps. You will be tired after your marathon but I'm looking forward to our date at 6 tomorrow. I am, however, unsure as to the time as you say 6 p.m. at the start of your post and 6 a.m. at the end. I'm hoping it's 6 p.m. ha ha.
