'Make and Takes'

Hello are we all? Well I hope.

You may remember that a few weeks back I went to the great British Craft Festival at Bolton and a friend and I did a couple of makes and takes. I promised I would show you what I had here we are.......

First MDF heart.

This was my first go at covering with paper...I did enjoy this! I am sure there is scope for a lot more texture etc to be added to this in the future.I know a lot of you out there have produced some stunning MDF creations

Secondly Hunkydory liftables....... so pretty..........and not something I would normally go for....but.....
take a look.

This is the butterfly pad (they do flowers as well)....the butterflies were painted with distress inks....layered and lifted...simple...quick but stunning effect, great for when time is short but impact is required. Just need to add a sentiment in the middle when required.

I came away very satisfied......and a bit inspired I have to say........just such a shame that there is never a stand selling time!!!! I know it would be the first one to sell out !!

Thank you for stopping by today...I do hope you are having a good week...........I shall catch up with you all very soon.

Take care, and if you have left comments for me...thank you also, I love to read them.

See you all soon
Love Carole xx


  1. Two fab projects Carole. The heart is beautiful and I am with you on the Hunkydory stuff - not normally my thing but these are gorgeous!!! x

  2. Oooh, I can see why you thought that was time well spent and wished you had more! These are spectacular, Carole!!

    I'm working out the final deets of my upcoming visit and I sent you an email a couple of weeks ago. I'm wondering if you got it? Mine is darnell dot knauss at gmail dot com. Thanks!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Another duo of gorgeous and, as you can predict, your butterflies in both have me swooning! The MDF heart sets mine a pitter-patter, while your beautifully coloured-and-lifted butterflies are absolutely marvelous! Impressive make-and-takes in every way!
