This end Up!


The business side of Time To Create means that sometimes I need the "This End Up" stamp right in the middle of my forehead. I can't believe that there are over 4000+ products on my website and many hundreds more in store!

That's a lot of packing lists and packaging!

Which is good today for my light hearted make!

I'm not sure whether it is the fact that I have gathered together the photos in our home and put them in the one place or that there are a lot of marvellous paper ranges that are tempting me but whatever it is I have been enamoured with scrapbooking when I can sneak playtime that is!

This silly little play is for a challenge over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges where you are asked to use a list. I've been playing there too as the challenges are interesting but not rule heavy.
How virtuous am I to have cleaned up all that packaging too! Isn't some of the packaging too lovely to toss?


What's on the agenda this weekend? Well, a very exciting package arrived yesterday from a very generous and interesting company! The 4000+ products will be increased when Time To Create becomes the first Australian stockists....Funky and fun....I hope you are going to love it!
I will certainly be keeping my cup half full this weekend ...of coffee as I dive about. Yes I'm checking those lists carefully!

Frame It!

Hello and welcome!
Quite a few months ago I created a class where we de-constructed an old pair of denim jeans and made all sorts of projects.

One of them that I loved was to use the Mega Sized Tattered Floral to create a focal piece for fabric panels.


With the mixture of fabric die cuts, stamping with Chocolate Baroque Stamps and embellishing I went on to create three panels. After the class I put them away.

I knew they would be perfect for the bedroom particularly as there are indigo curtains ( I'm a light phobe) as well as other inky accents in the room.

How to frame them was a little problematic until I got out some old frames that just needed a bit of sprucing up. Viva Decor Stamping Paint and a little of the Viva Decor Inka Gold worked some magic.


When I painted the denim I added a little PVA to the paint. This made it stiff enough to be able to shape the fabric pieces. Some of the ribbons and braids needed touches of colour too so that they blended. I know the burlap might fray but hey that's what burlap does!


Of course when I asked Super Star if he could hang these pieces for me he had the drill revving faster than I could take a photo. These are on the wall!


Fabric takes stamping really well and now with the newer ink pads heat setting means the fabrics can be washed.


There are a couple of tiny pieces that are joining the denim trio when I find them that is. Slowly we are sorting out all the packed boxes from our renovations. One box at a time!

I've got some ladies about to descend on Time To Create and we are going to get MESSY!
How easily pleased we crafters are!
