Chef of Happiness

Chef of Happiness

I just want to share this card with you which I made for a work colleague who is moving on to pastures new. I made the chef and cooking utensils using a set of  MFT stamps Recipe for Happiness. This is the first time that I have used any of their stamps and found them so crisp and easy to use. The beer bottles set – Last Orders were bought from set from Card-io, all cut out and mounted onto the card. The star was made using the Tonic star set whilst the greeting is a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp.

Hope you like it as I had lots of fun doing it and will definitely be buying more MFT stamp sets and co-ordinating dies.

I would also like to enter the card into the Seven Hills monthly craft challenge for September – Spotlight.

Keeping Note of Craft Stuff

This is something I never thought I would find myself doing. I am a visual person and love having all my crafty stuff on view. With the room getting smaller or just buying too much, I find that I cannot keep all my dies, stamps, inks etc, in full view allowing me to decide what I am going to use for my next project.

Today I came up with what I thought was as a good idea for me.  Using the application Trello I was able to start listing all the craft stamps etc into lists, organised by the brand. Then getting photos, they were added to each of the items in the list giving me a visual image. As you can see from the screen shot I will be able to easily find what I am looking for. Each card will also be linked to projects I have made using the individual items.

Hope that you find this helpful.
