First Prize

Hello friends

Back into the swing of things, the cats have decided to punish me for being
away with very early wake up calls! 

Today's projects were made for both CHA and the studio at 
Create and Craft.  Something a little different, the rosette die 
is First Prize and I created them in various sizes and colours,
placed them on garden sticks and popped them into oasis
in little metal buckets.

Some leaves, flowers, crystals and ribbon added to finish.
I spritzed the leaves with some gold spray so I now have a 
golden glow on my craft desk too!

This die was a sellout, I think the fact that you can make the rosettes
different sizes is really useful.

If you fancy trying out steel rule dies with all different mediums
there are other designs available including First Prize.

Nearly the end of the month, I always think January is a tricky
month, I'm not allowed to wish it away too quickly though as
tomorrow is Mitchell's birthday, my eldest is living back home at the 
moment - I'm learning to embrace the extra washing etc! 

Take care friends, have a great Monday!

  6. Morning Christine, This rosette bucket looks fabulous, a brilliant idea !!
    I had to chuckle at your comments about the cats showing their displeasure, and also how you are 'learning' to embrace the extra washing, very funny and it's brightened my morning.
    Happy Birthday to Mitchell for tomorrow, I hope you have a lovely day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. I enjoyed your shows very much If I was in the market for a smaller machine It would definitely be the Sapphire Plus as it takes the big steel dies - not that I own any but you never know...!
