Stamp storage idea

The Fruit Pixie has a lovely new stamp line, Lavinia Stamps and so I needed a way to keep my stamps together ready to be used. So I have made them a nice new home in my usual storage trick, a handmade binder using plastic CD pockets. I have used this idea so many times in the past and it still dose the trick!!

These are lovely fantasy stamps along with cute zentangle stamps. Not my usual style but there is just something about these stamps that I really like. I used some of them to make the cover, just covered cereal box card

I then stamped the images onto card and laminated them

Each card has its own CD pocket that is punched and then bound into the book with seambinding

and closed with a ribbon.

  You can find detailed instructions on the Fruit Pixie blog -

 The stamps are available from the fruit Pixie shop -

Marbled eggs

A while ago I bought a marbling kit, it takes a bit of preparation and I did have a few snags, our water is still to hard for the water bath even after going through our filter and I don't think I mixed the paint up thick enough but I know how to fix these glitches so next time it should be fine. Even taking these problems into account I still was amazed at the finished projects, I marbled some polystyrene eggs and some flat wooden eggs for my Easter tree and I thin they look rather good!

Hare collage piece

I have been playing with my Gelli plate and some dry wax paper or Delli paper available in nice small amounts - 15 sheets for £1 at the wonderful Fruit Pixie online shop where I am the design Elf!

This collage was made using the wonderful book pages from the Fruit Pixie and then I stamped the hare stamps onto my printed delli paper and cut them out, added some distress ink to the edges to finish.

I also made this card with the printed delli paper which I put over some book paper. I then stamped the hare stamp and coloured their crowns. The corners are a Crafty Individuals starry frame which I cut into 4 to make the corners, I also used some Washi tape, the blue spot to add an extra bit or colour.

All items are available from The fruit Pixie, except the stamps.
