JoAnn Haul and Tags


Went Shopping to JoAnns yesterday, I wanted the full pad of the shattered collection papers but they only had the single sheets so I picked 3 up, along with Somerset Studio Gallery 2014, white card, canvas boards and a 7 gypsies wooden frame.


Loads of T!m Holtz idea-ology and other metal and wooden embellies.


More idea-ology, a couple of wooden stamps, paint and threads.


And some basic essentials which I wouldn't normally buy, but I have torn a calf muscle so at present can't ski, so needed glue, scissors, ink pad and baby wipes in order to keep myself entertained in the daytimes!!!


So with my limited supplies Emma set us a challenge to make something green with words on it and a time limit of an hour. This was no mean feat without a heat gun, but the hotel hair dryer came in handy!! Patterned papers, used both my new stamps and made a darker green paint using the blue for the circles.


And then I decided to make a second one too. Used rub ons, tissue tape, sharpies and paint.

Not up to my usual standard, but not bad considering what I had to play with!!

Sam, so sorry to hear you can't ski - for a second year. That's such bad luck. Thank goodness you have the craft shops of America to save you from going crazy.

I do love your tags. Your stash is growing I see!
I am very sorry about your torn calf muscle. I guess it will take a while to heal. Too bad for you but great for us as we will get to enjoy more of your makes.
