Crafting in Miniature

Altered Miniature Piano - A Candy Box Crafts Product 
I hope you're having a good week.  It's flying here, I've been designing and making a new project for Graphic 45, cut into a few more sheets of An Eerie Tale papers and writing the instructions for the two projects we're making at my retreat next weekend.  We're one day away from the last GCSE exam,  which Harry tells me have all gone well and his last day at school.  I think I'll be having to find him some little jobs next week.  Oli's been working on the web site too which is giving me more time to cut up paper an stick it together lol! 

I thought I'd share this new product with you from Candy Box Crafts.  Its the cutest little piano to decorate and fill with whatever you fancy.  Roy, Mr Candy Box himself decorated this one in papers from the Bird Song collection by Graphic 45 and I made the flower arrangement to sit under the lid using the Sizzix Susan's Garden Rose Die (658411) and Cheery Lee Designs Branches (B466) 

Undecorated it looks like the is (above) and is available now in our shop along with lots more fabulous Candy Box Crafts products to tempt you.  Heres the link

  7. This piano is gorgeous and just the thing to make for my sister's 60th birthday in December ( I might just get it finished if I start soon) She plays the piano and this would look lovely stood on top of hers. I play a little bit but it always sounds as if I have boxing gloves on or so I am informed!! Aren't some people unappreciative Clare? Lovely and hot here today but I've spent most of my time in the kitchen;cooking but it's time to relax now with a glass of red. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs Pauline A xx

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 :-)

The first tag was inked lightly all over wi…

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
