Good evening crafters!! well what a week!! i feel i have neglected my blog of late ( shakes head ) I've had such a busy couple of weeks, lots of things going on at work...all good!.. training to fit in..also good! and ...dun dun dun...CHRISTMAS CRAFTING !!! AAARRRRHHH...and breathe... this topped with the horrid cold i now have a busy Design Team Schedule and a wedding order for the lovely Clarie who is getting married on the 28th of December..I've been a tad preoccupied...( did i mention my Christmas card stall on the 2nd of December too!) phew i have no idea how i fit the day job in!! so today i printed off a planner to get me back on track! all i need to do is fill it in mmmm.
ANYWAY on to crafting!! Its been an exciting week over at Crafters companion with the fabulous launch of the cutest little Bunni, in the amazing new addition to the Bebunni range with "Bebunni Floral" guys and gals if you love and adore Bebunni like we do, trust me you need to add this CD ROM to your collection! the images are just beautiful with the softest of colour pallettes, which i hasten to add i LOVE for 2 reason as a CD crafter
- they are just totally yummyiressitablygorgeous
- THEY DONT TAKE MUCH INK TO PRINT! yay bonus!!!
as an avid cd'aholic ( yes this is a word ) one of my most expensive layouts is ink! so i like to be frugal! if i don't need to print it i don't and this is one of the reasons i like to import my images into a graphic programme, so i can only print what i need for the project I'm doing. i LOVE LOVE LOVE my printer ( i have a canon A3 pixma ix6550) and obviously as a CD crafter without it...well...i couldn't craft! so i only buy original inks, pricey but good!, now don't all shout at the screen lol i know there are some amazing compatibles out there and I'm not knocking any of them its just a personal choice, ive had my little beauty break on me once and at £169 not something you want to replace! but it was exchanged so quibble for brand new! had i put in compatibles, it would have been sorry..go buy a new one lol,
right...I'm digressing lol where was i? oh yes ...BEBUNNI! so did you all carch the shows on Create and Craft this week? not only was there amazing deals to be snapped up, alongside the arrival of the new addition to the Bebunni family Crafters Companion have simply out done themselves by bringing out a range of Bebunni dies too!! for this launch i made 10 samples, now when me and the girls get our allocation, we have to be quite specific on what sections of the cdrom or stamps we are using so our wonderful DT leader Fiona gets us all organised with what and who needs to make what lol ( she does a fabulous job!!thanks Fiona!!) so here are my 10 makes for you, 6 from the CD and 4 using the stamps
first off a cute little stamped image coloured on CC Neenah white card, coloured with spectrum noir pens and pencils, base made using cc Kraft card ( love this stuff!) ,
and below how about using your dies to create a cute small shaped card? here Ive used the Die'sire die Elegance stamping frame to do just that and coloured up little bebunni for a lovely Good luck card.
her again another shaped card, this time using the Die'sire Chantilly lace die, coloured up bebunni and popped him..or her lol in place! supe4r cute and super fast too!
here Ive tried CC desert storm to colour on for a change, you do get a completely different feel, feels very vintage , i like!
now onto the CD ROM, I'm not going to waffle ..oops maybe too late!, all 6 cards here are made using the wonderful collection from the CD, buy it and see!
so there you go! all 10 of my deign team makes for you. As soon as i have finished ploughing through my long list of Christmas cards i am really looking forward to having a good play with this collection!
thank you so very much for stopping by, and reading my quite looooooong post this evening!!
