Blimey, you learn something new every day don't you? How long have I been blogging? That's one of those rhetorical questions - honestly, I DON'T expect you to know the answer to that (since June 2010 is the answer though!). Yesterday I happened across a dialogue between SallyB and ScrappyJacky which involved the size of photographs (apparently size DOES matter!) ...... Sally fixed her issue and then Katina said something about adjusting the widths on your blogger template ....... LIGHTBULB moment!! No idea how to do it but I wanted to find out and off I went. NOW I can have Xtra large pix in my blog AND I can separate my two sidebars which occasionally merged - I'm a happy bunny - thanks to SallyB, ScrappyJacky and Katina - YAY!!! If none of that makes any sense to you then ...... maybe wait a year and it will!
This morning my latest issue of Craft Stamper arrived with it's fab little freebie stamp by Stampotique attached ...... leafed through and was taken by one of the examples using this free stamp, a card by Joanne Wardle, so I set off to make my own version of her card.
- C6 300gsm Kraft card and matching envelope
- Stampotique star image inked in Memento tuxedo black directly on to the base card and a frame drawn round it and cut out with a craft knife
- Post it's to make a frame on the base card which I then coloured using Distress Ink in Barn Door
- Studiog sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black on to the red panel
- Kaisercraft glittered water droplet to embellish
- Crystal stickles to embellish star
- Inside of card lined with DCWV Christmas paper
- White panel of card with corners rounded and coloured with Barn Door to match before inking my sentiment again in the centre of the panel. The sentiment was also inked once more to embellish the envelope
Hope you like it ..... I suspect this stamp may get used again .... and again ...... and again!
This morning Steve had gone to Gloucester, by train, for a hair trim and possible business visit - we shall see. I'm left home alone so ....... wonder what I shall be doing? Hmmm - tough one eh folks?
