Fun cracker makes

Crackers for all occasions
Hellllooooo and a Happy Tuesday to you.  A couple of weeks ago I showed the ladies at the workshop I was running at Pink Tulip how to use the Envelope Punch Board to make quick and easy crackers, and the lovely Linda asked if I'd do a video, so Linda this one's of you.  

I'm out and about this week starting with a trip to Peterborough early Wednesday morning.  Join me if you can for the DCWV shows at 10am and 3pm on Create and Craft TV.  Thursday I'm driving down to Cornwall and will be with Margaret and her ladies at Scrapbook Magic, Mullion for a workshop on Friday.  I'll be staying with my sister for a couple of days while I'm there too which I always look forward too.  Maybe we'll get to do some paddling lol!!! 

There's still time to leave a comment on this months Giveaway post to be in with a chance to win the gorgeous Violet Trio card kit,  donated by Paula & Gary, WhichcraftUK before it closes tonight at 12pm GMT.  Good luck.

Enjoy your week, thanks for calling by and catch up again in a couple of days :-)

    1. Hi Karin Thanks for calling by. Hope your enjoying your week. xx

  3. Hi Clare, love the "Crackers"!!! You make everything look so easy!!!! Even making the rosettes!! We put clear tape on the back of ours before we start concertinaing them, lol, if there is such a word, because sometimes they tend to come apart on the fold lines!! If I use the large rosette I put them in the top of a metal jar ring used on canning jars and it seems to help hold them whilst putting the little circle on. These are very cute and your tutorial videos are the best I have ever seen. You do an excellent job!!! I am going to try to watch you on your TV show and see if I can do it time wise since we are 8 hours apart!! Anyway thank you so much and enjoy visiting your sister!!!

    1. Hi Judy, hope you're enjoying your day. Am just home from the TV studio. Had a great day and enjoyed the shows. How are your albums coming along? xx

  4. Hi Clare Enjoyed the video and you make it seem so easy. Had to laugh when your rosette 'pooped' open as mine always does. You are so brave demoing them in front of a camera.. The envelope punch board looks great. Maybe I'll get one for my birthday. ( Hint Hint) Love Pauline A x

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!   
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)
