VIDEO | Card Making Haul - June 2016

Hello there, I am back today with my monthly card making haul. As always, I share these videos just to give you something fun to watch, to show what is out there and to show the sizes of the items 'in real life'. I hope you enjoy them.
 
 
I bought quite a few bits from the June MFT release, as well as some new bits for the upcoming Creative Chemistry class. Oh and of course, who can resist Doodlebug?! Here is a look at everything I bought:

VIDEO | Updated Raskog Cart Organisation

Hello there, a while ago I shared how I am organising my Raskog Cart. Well, a few months ago I decided to change it up a bit. I absolutely love this cart from Ikea. It wasn't cheap, but it is so worth it in my opinion. It holds a lot of stuff.


So like I said, a few months a go I changed it around a bit. The main thing I did was to move my 6x6" paper pads from the cart and put them elsewhere in my room. This gave me a whole shelf to play with (the middle shelf). I also changed up the top shelf too.
 

The top shelf is the one that I access the most. This holds my most used pens, paint brushes, pencils and new goodies. I love the Ikea Skurar pots for my pens and pencils and the Variera tub for my new items. I keep my new items in one place so that not only will it encourage me to use them before I put them away, it means I know what I have bought that month so I can film a haul video with them.


The next shelf down is what I am calling my mixed media shelf. I have another of the Variera tubs in here holding my sprays. I have a lot of the Heidi Swapp Color Shine ones, as well as stamp cleaner, mister bottles and my new Distress Paints. On this shelf, I also have my new alcohol inks, as well as mediums and tools.

 
The bottom shelf holds my Cuttlebug and the tools I need for it - cutting plates and also some large embossing folders and a steel rule die.

Thank You Sow Much

Hello there, if you have been following me for a while you will know how much I like pigs. Well, I think I have mentioned it once or twice ;) So of course when the Hog Heaven set came out from MFT, I had to grab it!
 

I started off by cutting a piece of white cardstock using the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies. I then stamped the pig on to it and again on masking paper. I cut out the one on the masking paper and placed it over the stamped panel. I also cut a cloud border from masking paper. This was placed on the panel also. I then used my Copic airbrush system to colour the sky, moving the cloud piece down as I airbrushed the sky.
 
 
I then took the masks off and coloured the rest of the panel using Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies list). The panel was adhered to a white A2 card base with foam tape. To finish off, I added Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay pen to the heart.

I got to use my new super duper air compressor at last. My mum kindly bought it for me for my birthday since I had complained I was getting through air cans so quickly. I absolutely love it! Lucky me for having such a wonderful mum! Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day and a great week!

Feel Better Soon

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the super cute Reverse Confetti Bear Hugs set. I apologies that it is two get well cards in a row, but I couldn't resist this cutie!
 

I started off by cutting a piece of white cardstock using the LF Stitched Journaling Card die. I then stamped the koala on to this, along with the sentiment. I coloured the koala with Copic Markers.
 
 
I took a piece of paper from the MFT Lucky Prints paper pad and adhered this to the front of an A2 card base. The image panel was then added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added a little Glossy Accents to the koalas nose.
