at the Riverfront, Newport, South Wales


Boutique market and Open Mic Sessions - it was Comedy Week


home sweet home

tablerunner and tray cloth/placemats


owl bag


tray cloth with Laura Ashley fabric


gingerbread house card



Owl and the pussycat


more bags


brooches

Actually, here in Wales there is a ban on bags - plastic and paper from shops, so you have to pay 5p for a bag- it's chaos in Mcdonalds!!  So many angry men.....it's 5p guys!

But my bags were featured on this youtube video by the clever baggers...at 49 seconds..haha


 





Gocco business cards

 Gocco - it's kind of fun, but slightly annoying...


the registration isn't great on this model...


and I wasted 2 bulbs...


I squeezed the design onto 1 screen, and moved the tag around between passes, using masking tape





finished product...


for my first craft fair.

Gocco Wedding - Save the Date


Save the Date cards for a special couple....


I've used my trusty Sizzix Big Shot to cut the tags, then printed them on my Gocco......go go gadgets!!


I've made the envelopes with handmade paper that I bought in Ikea at Easter, and added a magnet to stick on the fridge.


Hessian string and Playbill font adds the 'kitchiness'
