..four sheets of Pion papers went missing... cute papers with small people on them... while looking for something else I found them along with a pot of Raspberry glass glitter and some Collection Elements chipboard hearts.........amazing what you find on the floor behind boxes of stuff (Christmas stuff)..so I made some tags..

The Pion papers have lots of little elements and borders to cut out

and I just love glass glitter.. it has a very different look to ordinary glitter..
The tags were made from this cardstock...it's too thick for card bases but is fantastic for tags or constructing boxes, shrines or any project that needs something that bit more substantial than normal cardstock.
You can find everything you need here...

Julie: **New In** - and end to chasing embellishments around!

Hello again.
Do you use:
  • small embellishments in your crafting?
  • such as beads, buttons and brads?
  • does trying to pick a single, particular, one out out of its container drive you insane?
Me too!
Which is why I've been enjoying using this:
Aside from having a fab name 'Embellie Gellie' is also really useful addition to your crafting tool kit.
The gel is a squidgy, tacky, substance, presented inside its own box [above] which you can use to easily pick up fiddly embellishments etc. You only need a small amount of it pressed on to the end of the stick provided and you're away.
This last week I put it to good use picking out the exact colour of tiny buttons I needed from a jar filled with all kinds of colours:
I also used it to winkle out the specific colour of brad I wanted ... after almost getting my fingers stuck in the jar [and very nearly throwing the jar across the room in frustration!].

But, for a less hysterical description of Embellie Gellie ... here's how the manufacturer, Scraperfect, describes it:

The quick pick-up tool for placing small embellishments:
Use a pearl-sized ball of Embellie Gellie on the wooden wand. So fast and E-Z!
  • Pick up and precisely place small embellishments including gems & jewels, buttons, beads, sequins, charms, punched shapes, confetti and more
  • Perfect tackiness means it’s strong enough to pick up charms, yet releases diecut letters with ease
  • Better than tweezers! Easier to pickup flat items and will not mar, bend or “pop” embellishments
  • Stable material does not dry out, soften or harden with time or temperature
  • Environmentally-friendly minimal design and packaging contains a long-lasting supply of Gellie
But if you need a little more persuading ... I can honestly report that while it might sound fairly girlie [and yes, it does come in a pink glittery box!] ... it's also really useful for plenty of fiddly men-friendly hobbies too.
My other half has already pinched some from me to use in his scale-aeroplane modelling [where he has to pick up and glue together some very tiny parts!] and is equally as impressed by it as I am!
Embellie Gellie's part of the new range of practical supplies from Scraperfect which is now in stock in the 3DJean shop where some of the other items include the Best Glue Ever and the Best Cleaner Ever. [Those are the actual product names!]
See you again soon.

It's All About Hexagons

I've got back into scrapbooking , all I seemed to be make where cards. So I thought I would have a play with the lovely NOTEBOOKS OF THE HERBORISTE 12x12 papers.

I added some strips and cut up the Hexagon sheet from the range , then added them to the layout with 3d foam pads to give it some depth.

A little bit of Basic Grey to pull it all together and some photo's completed the look.

Jan: Sweetheart box

That time is almost upon us to tell the one we love that they are special. This year I thought I would treat my love to a little gift. Jean has some fab kraft card which is great for this sort of project. It is very thick and strong, what you would call construction card. It comes in an amazing range of colours. As it's a Valentine's Day project I've used the brick(red).

 I cut out the shapes using my nesties. They didn't cut out cleanly so I had to help them out with a craft knife but it was worth the effort.

 I've used Pion papers to decorate. The striped band and label are from "From my heart 2" and the butterflies and words are from the new Playtime range.  As for the filling ....well it had to be love hearts, unfortunately Jean is not stocking these...yet.

So what are you going to use your kraft card for?
