its time for a monthly Crafters Companion blog challenge and as its Crafters Companion's Birthday week in October we decided on a theme of Birthdays.
Sooo...... i decided to use some older products and newer products to celebrate the years that CC have been with us. My all time faves are SWALK stamps and i used this image while in Holland and Belgium in turquoises so i decided to have a go with vibrant reds. I coloured this in between my Spectrum Noir workshops and i wasn't too happy with the result and was going to throw it in the bin. However Margaret had a quiet time while i was teaching my next workshop and she made it into a card without me knowing and look at what she came up with.
Ultimate Pro on the matting and layering and then chose ribbons to match. I think she did a brilliant job and i was amazed, especially seeing as though it was going in the bin. Then I've added the smallest Scalloped Tag from the new Diesire range of Crafters Companions Dies to finish it off. I've not listed the colours i have used as i really can't remember but i only had the six packs of Spectrum noirs with me so they are all from those.
I have also started to organise my stamps and dies too, using the new storage system from Crafters Companion and i just love it. Everything is neat and tidy all in one place where i can find them and i cannot wait to get more and sort all of my goodies out. At the minute they are just in boxes getting messed up and it takes me hours to find anything. No wonder i haven't enough time to fit everything in. This is one of the larger binders but there are smaller ones too and i have used the magnetic sheets for dies and there are inserts too for stamps.
Hope you like it and don't forget to pop over to the blog and take part.
