My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!
In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!
Hi folks, like many crafters I do not like to throw things away but the other day I looked around me and thought "YOU REALLY MUST DO SOMETHING WITH ALL THESE BITS AND PIECES" but the question is WHAT?????
For a start this is what sits by my desk.....
it's where I store cut offs of paper and card - I'm sure you have some too!
colour coded (well most of the time) in plastic wallets
One way to use these leftovers is to make tags, and since I have some new stamps from Inkylicious and also a Martha Stewart corner and border punch this seemed a good way to start.....
I felt really pleased and proud of myself when I had finished my project - I had used two bits of waste, 2 new tools and stamps, and some raffia that had tied up a bunch of lovely red roses from my crafting mate Chrissie of LIM fame, and enjoyed myself! No wonder I love crafting!! I have my thinking cap on for more ideas on using more of my leftover stash because I have lots (and I mean lots)!
