Docrafts A-Z Challenge, letter T.

Evening everyone, I am sharing a quick card today that I have made for a family member and its the dreaded male card!
Luckily most of my family are catered for now using the super Wellington range from Docrafts as it shows Wellington the bear with many sports and leisure activities, perfect.

This card is for the Docrafts A-Z challenge which is over on their blog. The letter this time is T and the products to be used are tags and twine.

I have used some brown/white twine from my stash and my tag is one of the decorative stamps from the new Docrafts, Home for Christmas range in the Tags set.
The stamp comes with 3 lines in the centre for you to hand write a message or leave blank as an embellishment but I have horrified ladies at my recent demos by cutting my stamps up and so I have removed those lines from my stamp with a craft knife and used a Just Rite sentiment stamp to fill the gap, luckily it's a really good fit! :)
Right, I'm off to do some stamping ready for demo prep with new Docrafts products next weekend! Ni. X

Guess The Crafty Item - Revealed!

Hiya crafters!
Well there were a few very clever guesses yesterday evening as to what my new exciting crafty item is and here is the answer:

A Promarker Storage Unit!!! :D :D :D Yay!

*** A big well done to the winner chosen at random, ChrisAndCat!!! ***

Please PM me over on Docrafts with your address and I'll get your prize sent before the weekend.
Thanks to everyone who played along. :)

So, I had been saying I wanted a storage unit for my pens as I was getting annoyed with having them in plastic boxes and having to search around for colours. Well after a month or so of dropping hints we set to designing a very basic unit.
What you can't really see from the photo is that the box is 4" deep with a solid back and two lattice effect panels to hold the pens securely. This means it can be turned horizontally for transport to my boyfriends when I craft there over the weekend or if I go to crafty play days at a friends. Clever touch! ;)
Dad drilled all the holes, 180 of them! (for the basic collection, all Seasonal Limited Editions and a few extra just in case!) so we marked the grid out with a pencil as a guide, mounted them on the deep frame and it was pained white.
I am loving how easy it is to find my pens now! :D
No one except crafters would understand how exciting this is, so I hope you've enjoyed my little share. Ni. X

Good afternoon crafters!
I am so excited about a new crafty item that I have just received, and I will share it in its entirety tomorrow...

a new pack of Strictly Party, Glitter Sentiments and 3 sets of Anita's Christmas Decorative Toppers!

Ok, so here is the picture below..... it's quite easy really isn't it?! ;)
