Tattered Lace - Flower Pot Shelf

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you had a good weekend and that you are having a good week so far. I always struggle a bit when the clocks change. The rabbits we had been looking after went home yesterday so I have been cleaning and getting everything back to normal (whatever that is).

I have been busy again and this latest project for Tattered Lace was a bit of a  rush the die didn't arrive  until last Friday. I was sent some laser cuts so that I could plan my makes. I did so well with the prep that everything was in the post the afternoon the die arrived hopefully arriving on Monday morning. It is very exciting being involved with this and some other opportunities have arisen that I might be able to share later on.

As it was a rush I stuck to making just the four projects usually I make one or two more. Once I start working with a die I tend to get lots of ideas of how to use it.  The die I was sent was called the Flower Pot Shelf it is a very pretty die and can be used in many ways. These dies make it very easy to snip away pieces so that they can be used in different ways, 


This was my first make I simply cut two of the die in white and I coloured them with my Promarkers. The letters on the bunting were cut with another Tattered Lace die set I had in my stash. 


This was quite a simple card. Once I had cut all the squares I cut the die three times in white. I cut off the pots of flowers and I coloured them with Promarkers. This I found was the easiest way to get the colours where I wanted them. It doesn't show very well but I put one of the snails in the bottom right hand corner of this card. 


I made another gift bag. I am working on a tutorial for these that I will add to my blog soon. I think the die looks good in silhouette. That little snail is so cute. 



I was rather proud of this I had to watch a video on how to make one but being me I had to change all the sizes. I used paper piecing to achieve the colours on this. I though it was a nice cheerful image for a calendar that will be out all year round. I used the calendar as a stopper for the easel part. You could put a gift in the drawer. 

The shows are on Create and Craft today I think with Nancy Watt demonstrating. I not quite sure if my projects will have got there in time. The first show is at 10:00 am I will be watching. 

I do hope that you have a good week and that the weather is kind to you. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
