Tattered Lace Blog Challenge - Elegance
So as you know I have been suffering with a creative block of which Tattered Lace is the medicine. I am very much enjoying there blog challenges. Please see http://challenge.tatteredlace.co.uk/ if you would like to take part.
I have treated myself AGAIN!!! to some new Tattered Lace Dies, a couple of which can be seen in this sample. Specifically, I have bought the new Thames Die Set and the Butterfly set.
I have a special liking for cards that only have a couple colours, sometimes I think they are more powerful that cards with lots of colour.
In the above card I have used the panel die that came free with Tattered Laces most recent magazines, which I must say is absolutely fabulous. The cars itself is pretty self explanatory.
There are a couple of Birthday's coming up at work, so I think this is where this card will go. I think I may have found myself yet another buyer population to - YAY!!!!

As I have stated in a previous post. I have been suffering from a little craft card block. As a result I haven't been making loads of cards. I have been looking at other peoples blogs, reading tattered lace magazines and looking for inspiration. I then saw a tattered lace facebook post that they were looking for people to join Tatty Twinkles design team. I felt inspired by this and for the next 3 days I worked on the above card and I have to say I am very proud of it.
Tatty Twinkle is very new to Tattered Lace and I think she can go far.
For this card I have used:
Tatty Twinkle stamp
Create and Crafts Topsy Turvey Card (A MUST)
Tattered Lace Flower Die and words
Tattered Lace Blinging Gems
EK Success Butterfly Punch
As promised I have attached a picture of my craft room. Please keep in mind that it is still early days and I plan to do a bit more to it (e.g. a bit of paint, some pictures and some lovely curtains) Does anybody a few suggestions about what makes a fabulous craft room. All my magnetic sheets have been attached to the inside of my cupboard doors, so they give it easy access to all of my tattered lace dies :-)
and the rest of the house...

Good morning fellow crafters, crafty apologies for the lack of posts and pictures. I have been super busy with the house move. However, I am all settled in now and things can get back to a little bit of normality (e.g. crafting). I will post some pictures of the house shortly because I am dying to show off my craft room. Its not finished yet, because I am going to have some fun decorating it. It can be the space where I go a little wild so to speak.
Given the stress of moving, I only had the time to make cards that had been specifically requested from me or cards that I needed to make myself.
Recently, I feel that I have hit a crafty block. My cards feel like they are all coming out a bit samey. Have you ever had this? I have been getting a lot of inspiration from other peoples cards, which I have found online and also I have been doing some of the projects in the tattered lace magazines. Since doing this, I have been trying to pick up new techniques, my cards have been taking longer, they do not always work out but I feel like I'm getting there.
Given the inspiration I am getting from others. I am thinking of dedicating a weekly or monthly post to pictures of cards made by others that have really grabbed my attention. I feel that people should get credit for the beautiful cards that they make.
