Place in Time Cards and Crafts

Top of the morning to you all,

I know it's a little early to wish you all a happy St Patrick's Day but my Irish themed layout featuring the crafty elf himself, the lovely Andy is up on the Graphic 45 blog today along with the Gloria's wonderful Place in Time card tutorial series.  Just click the link below to hop over and take a peek. 

Andy has become my greatest critic over the past couple of years, and has picked up all sorts of tips and ideas during the hours spent wondering around craft shows with me, making teas and coffees at my workshops and as a studio guest at Create and Craft TV   watching and brushing up on his techniques along the way.  Here's a little creation he ran up one morning before going off to work.  

The Crafty Elfs Supply List 
Cardboard - supplied by Andy 
Spellbinders Blossom - one I'd made earlier and left on the table 
Rafia - from a flower bouquet he bought me
paper clip - found in a drawer 
Heart - cut out by hand from the Tropical Travelogue paper collection 
Treasury Tag - from my stash 
Artistic writing - his own 
Hole Re enforcer - found on the floor 
Ribbon - from my huge collection 

Have a great day :-)
