Hi,Happy Thursday. Hope you are having a wonderful week. School started yesterday and my work hours go back to normal but should manage to get some crafting in now.
Yesterday I met up with my very good friend,Kate. We haven't managed to see each other during the 6 week school hols. The rest of the year we spend alot of time together so we arranged to meet up for lunch.
I had a little gift from one of our mini trips away(Kate is a massive cupcake fan), and decided to make a quick box to give it to her in. Thought I would share this with you.

I must apologise for the picture as I (and I still don't know how) deleted the better picture of this little box on it's own!
Anyone that read my candle post will know how little I use my gypsy. Well the other thing that looks at me when I'm crafting is my Imagine. Unfortunately it's too big to hide in a drawer! Lol.
I was undecided whether I wanted one of these and over time saw fabulous creations with it and when it was on offer I took the plunge. It arrived just before school hols so haven't had much opportunity to play with it but I must have a real go. For me,I like adding the detail to my work and the Imagine feels pretty well done...I think this is my difficulty to overcome.
I digress as I thought I would cut the best friends and butterfly from it. (I still inked my images though!)

I cut the box at 4.75" from Sweet Tooth Boxes using Tim Holtz Kraft Resist card. Beautiful butterfly images.... so I thought,it turns out they are moths!

I don't think I could get it to cut like that again if I wanted too! I  assembled my best friend image on 3d foam and instead of sticking to the house it slides over the tab! Had to include the 3 bears I picked up as it reminded me of goldilocks. Enough of my ramblings!
I am entering this over at My Craft Spot - make a project for a friend.

I'd just like to thank Judy from for thinking of me and awarding me The Butterfly Award. Judy makes beautiful projects and so do visit her amazing blog.

Thrilled that my Falling for You card won over at BBTB2 and made top 5 at FCCB.

Can you tell I haven't posted much for a while?!

Have a fab day.

  2. Congrats Jayne! Although it doesn't surprise me that your cards/projects win.... You are soooo talented! And this is soooo CUTE! What a great gift for a friend.... Don't worry... it will get easier to use the imagine! Sooo much easier than that stinker of a Gypsy! LOL I don't know if you've ever been to this blog... but here is a blog where they make all kinds of Imagine projects that may help you out in using yours!
    I hope it helps!
