Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well.
Sorry I've been missing from blogging or commenting but had a few things going on here healthwise (I will explain later in the week) and doing some samples for John's first One Day Special on Hochanda with Crafts Too.
Some of the products will be available on my website later today and there is a link on my sidebar to the website.
Now, the new products are embossing and cutting folders so they emboss around the edge at the same time as cutting an aperture from the centre.I use a Grand Calibur and have found that a combo of the white cutting plate and raspberry plate work best on my machine.
You know I like to do something different so I decided to go with a box,
Cream and aqua card
Crafts Too Mariposa embossing and cutting folder
SB Medallion die
Hobbycraft corner punches.
Aqua Spectrum Noir
I used a sheet of A4 to do the sides. I cut the sheet in half across the width and used the folder twice alongside each other on each half. I then scored down the middle of each to form the sides.
I then made a separate base to fit and a lid.......the inner piece fits the aperture, whilst the top piece over hangs slightly. 2 x depth of foam pads holds them together and holds the lid onto the box.
A basic box that could be zhushed up with other bits and bobs but something different to do with the folders.
Hope you enjoy John's shows. He is on at 6pm and 8pm today.
Don't forget to check the website later as there are some special offers on there too. Also, I am ordering some of John's box dies for some customers so if anyone would like them ordering, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Sandwich Box will be £19.99 and the Opera Box will be £24.99 and I'm only ordering them to order (if that makes sense). I will also be replenishing the Star Flower and Mini Tags dies too.
Hope you have a good week.
Ps.....I had a new camera from Mr D for Christmas so this is the first blog outing with it and my new photo tent. Hope it looks ok.
