Day 6: Craft/blog every day in June!


Today Kairen has set us these prompts:

Day 6: Tell us all about your fav craft gadget & why OR Craft with a Summer theme

Another word post today as I'm a right misery guts who doesn't like Summer at all lol....
well, maybe I do like it just a little bit....real early in the morning when the world is
quiet I do like to sit outside with a mug of coffee & plan the day! Anyway, enough
waffle from me.....I'm gonna tell you all about my favourite craft gadget & why:
Well, it's gonna be a tie between Mr & Mrs Die Cutter....I love my Big Shot (Mr) & last year
 one of my boys bought me a Grand Calibur (Mrs Spellbinder) yep, I love 'em that
much they even have titles!
So why do I love them? Mr Big Shot because I love my Big Sizzix dies, especially
my Tim Holtz ones & Mrs Spellbinder because I love that it can cut bigger
die & folders......I recently tried Sheena Douglas' faux leather technique using
glycerine & it worked fab! I then ran it through an A4  embossing folder & wow, I
was so chuffed with the results! I'll show you another time cos I'm gonna make it
into a notebook for one of my boys for Christmas!

What's your favourite gadget?

  3. Hi Jo

    I hate the summer too so its nice to hear it from someone else. I like the brightness and the longer days but I dont do hot!!!!!! Love being able to dry the washing but not the ironing.

    I would have to say that my favourite is my ebosser,love being able to cut bigger or lots at once and not having to crank the handle. lol.

    Happy crafting
