Man O'h Man!

A Mans Birthday Card for today's post. Happy Birthday Brother-in-law.

Here I have used an embossing folder to emboss some white paper then coloured it with Black Soot Ink. Then I have used the On The Edge Die for some black paper. The Tag has been covered in silver paper that has a sticky back. This has been embossed and I have gone around the cogs with a fine black pen. I have also added a hammer which come to think of it now probably should have been a screw O'h well. I've also added a die cut of a car, some brads, an eyelet on the tag and some chain.

 Have a great day!

ATC Carousel Holder

Hello and welcome,

Today I am showing my ATC Display Holder. I was sick and tired of not knowing in a hurry what dies and embossing folders I have. So I decided to put them on display. It's wonderful now I just turn the carousel and I know exactly what I have and unfortunately what I still need to purchase.

You can simply use the ATC Cards that are already pre-cut and ready to go on they're own or you can use a slip cover like I have. I prefer the slip covers as they turn easier when flicking through the cards.
Some I placed a piece of cheap black card stock in between to highlight that particular shape.

Embossing Folders in one section.

Edge punches in one section

Dies in another section

More punches.

This is a pre-cut card in a slip cover.

Here is the 7 Gypsies Carousel box to look out for.

You will need a few slip cover packets. The cheapest I  found was on Ebay.

There you have it.

I hope this has been helpful.  I know organisation in a craft room can seem daunting when you have a lot of items to sort through but once its done I'm sure you will be pleased.

If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them.

My biggest task to tackle yet is my stamps. I have no idea what I have got in there. That's another day another post.!!

Your Tea-riffic Thelma


A very quick post today. 
Another card for Nan. This time it's Your Tea-riffic and she really is.  I love spending time with her, especially since I don't have my Nan around anymore. Spending time with mature age ladies and men for that matter is quite theraputic I think. There is so much to learn from them.

Apologies for the poor quality photo. I am unable to do a photography course till next year. I so need it.
Enjoy your day!!

I was on Pinterest and just had to share something with you.  If you believe in  fairies take a look at the link if not thanks for stopping by and I will have something else for you next time. O'h and when you loose another tooth don't expect the fairies to visit you. LOL.  Click here to visit

Here are some pictures from

How creative is this? I love love love these.
It says Please Do Not Touch. These books are out of circulation. Besides there may be some-one living in them and it would be rude to disturb them.

I am going to have to make something similar for my daughter. This would be amazing on her book shelf. I already have the fairy door which I purchased from Sydney so its just a matter of making the homes. There are alot of clever fairies out there. And NO I haven't been drinking.

Have a great day!
