I'm Pants....apparently...

I have been told recently (twice, actually....and by the same person) that I am a "pants Blogger"....do you know what? She is absolutely right! I am a pants Blogger. I used to be good, back when I had design team commitments to fulfill. Perhaps I ought to try to get back into a Design Team??

Anyway, after my Friends (?) comments I thought I really ought to have a catch up on here. So what have I been doing?

My Daughters Friends have just had their second child together, a baby girl called Rae. This is a quick shot of the High Chair I made for my daughter to give to them. I made a moses basket for their last baby, so had to do something different this time.

My Daughter's partner's Brother (hope you followed that) has just got married and this is the card I made for them to give. I really like this card design.
Our Niece is one today, and now the day has come I can post this picture. I don't think the family read the blog, but I didn't want to chance it.

I have spent any spare time over the last couple of days playing with my new love...my Altenew stamps. I just love how these stamps layer up. I am a Stampin Up fan, and love their two step stamps, but these take the idea a stage further, and the effect is lovely. I have tried several different ways to try to line the stamps up correctly....it can be a bit tricky to get the positioning just right. The best way for me is to use an acrylic block (even though I usually use the Misty). Trouble is I have twice dropped the block whilst trying to twist and turn it to line up the layer stamps resulting in having to start again with that panel. I am waiting for some little acrylic handle to arrive and I will hot glue them to my acrylic blocks to help with my problem. I wasn't aware that I had a problem with my grip...but I obviously have! I love this card shape too. I saw it on Dawns Stampin Thoughts and just had to have a go. A cutting file makes the job much easier though!
Well that's me all caught up (Karen!!).


  1. Hi there Diane! How lovely to see you posting and two fabulous cards too! Love the double Z fold one and am so envious of your prowess with the Altenew stamps. I keep thinking about having a go, using possibly the same set as you, but so far have just stuck to their one layer stamps (which are also wonderful). You're NOT a pants blogger - remember that the best things come in small packages :)

  2. Ha ha. Well done. Lovely stuff. My guru friend­čśŤ

  3. Hi Diane, thanks for popping over. Of course you will all see the results, which will arrive first I wonder, my visitors, Tesco or the new unit? So excited I am panicking about what to clean or tidy first!
