Morning guys,well just.

sorry I have not been about for a while,but I decided to renovate my craft room.   Several weeks later its all done well one other bit to sort,but main room is done.

So here are the photos,thought you may like to see them.

The desk,I painted you can see before and after, its like shabby chic,as when paint was nearly dry I rubbed some back.

 All my shelves were the brown of my desk,so painted all those too.

I also did the above too.

Here you can see my desk.
This is were all my things I make go.

And this I bought,its a bathroom thingy,but thought it was great for storage the wee baskets,were a pound and fitted perfectly great for holding ribbons.

 Last picture of Alfie chilling in his chair.

Hi blogging friends,well the sun is shining here but oh its turned really chilly.  But as least the rain has stopped.

I have made another envelope book for one of my friends on FB,can show you some of the pages too as know she does not do blogging.

These lift up to reveal,more pictures,see below.

Think I got these images from June at dezina world.

This page is a label of some old jeans I had,which I loved so kept it.

The front of the book, is a cut file of a jar I downloaded, and added it to the front of the book. Then took some ribbon etc and added it to the spine.
Then I took a ring,and attached to the spine of the book,to hang some charms.
Then finished with a Paris clock to match the dove crafts papers.

And finally my Gorjus card.I have just bought these,now knowing if I would like them.  But so glad I did as I love the vintage feel to the images and papers.

So that is it from me,today hope you are all well,take care all my love Cherylxxxxxxxxx

A bit more time to craft anything goes

Morning guys well at moment the sun is shining here,but it looks as though its going to rain.

Which means its a perfect day to,craft.

I have been revisiting my old cd,s which I love to do every now and again, so once again I have used one of the images from the fabulous fashions,CD.

So here is the dress form,layered up with flowers,and leaves cut from the scan and cut.

Next I played with my scan and cut,and used the dress form images,and dress that comes,with the scan and cut,I welded them together,then  added some words to create the card.
The words say love laugh inspire,which I added using,the pens that come with scan and cut.
Happy Birthday,and the swirly bits all,created using scan and cut.

So that is it from me today,and just as I am finishing,this post its pouring with rain.

So stay,warm safe and healthy and take care my blogging friends.

All my love,hugs Cherylx

Morning guys well its lovely and sunny here today, its been so cold and wet.

Yesterday I made a card using one of my old favorite CD,s fabulous fashion.

So played along with it,and came up with this.

Papers are from my stash,flowers,leaves and shoes all cut using my scan and cut,the flowers are a free down load from birds svg.  Which I have,downloaded and then,unzipped,and used on my scan and cut.  I have added glossy accents to the shoes,and the hat.

Now for something totally different,I downloaded this,owl and cogs from pinetrist,it was a free cut file.  I played around with it,and used the owl not only as the main image but as a background too.
The cogs,I overlapped and then,welded,cut some branches,and played with some inks.

So here he is.

                    alphabet challenge y your choice.

Resurrection of my Blog??????????

Well I have decided to,start posting again on my old blog.

Finally after lots of messing about on windows ten,I got my old computer up and running which is running windows 7 and found my old blog. I could see my old blog on windows 10 but for some reason could not access it.

As some of you may know I did start another one,but just did not feel the same. 

Well firstly how are you all???
really missed seeing all that goes on in blog land,so hopefully some of you may come back to see me.

well here goes some of my recent makes.

Oh I have treated myself to the brother scan and cut.  Oh I love it,to bits.

So there you go my latest makes using my scan and cut.

I hope to see some of you back to my blog,and I will pop and see you all to say hello.

Lots love cheryl xxxxxxxx

Hello blogging friends,well its a bit late but wanted to wish you all a very happy new year.

I really hope the year will be filled with love,health and happiness for you all.

I have been away for a while,due to family issues,and I have also stepped down from That Craft place.  I have loved every minute of my time with the girls and it has been one of the happiest times of my crafty life.
I just want to wish Lisa all the best for 2016 she really does deserve it as her and Danny work so hard.

Creativity left me for months and months its been nearly a year since I made a card,but I did finally get my sewing machine out and I have made these 2 bags from scraps of material.

So hope you like them,just hope my mo jo lasts as hate feeling like this.

The tags I made myself using craft artist and printed the images onto canvas.

once again thanks for sticking by me massive hugs Cherylx
