Distress Inks and Border Punches

.... are two of my favourite crafting supplies right now!!

I quickly made this card this morning using both.

The background is kraft bazzill card stock mounted onto a white square card blank with a sheet from life of the party 6" X 6" Pad trimmed to fit and the edge punched with my Fiskars Border Punch (which are on order and will be in the shop very soon!). All the edges of the paper & card stock are inked with a blending tool and distress ink. The stamp is from a lovely set I ordered at my friends crafting "party" a couple of weeks ago and I stamped it with peeled paint distress ink. I added little gemstones and a stamped greeting to finish.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some of you at our July Open Day. See here for all the info!

Don't worry if you can't make it to this one as I've already booked in our August Day so put the 27th August in your diaries!

Giveaway coming soon .... promise!

Hi Everyone

Lots of you have bought one (or in some cases two!!) of the grab boxes and I hope you have enjoyed creating some lovely cards and scrapbook layouts with your new papers.

The very talented Jenny didn't waste any time in cutting into her new papers and made this beautiful card with the My Minds Eye Little Flowers paper from her grab box.

She also made this gorgeous box with another sheet of paper from her box.

For details of how she made both the card and box and to see more of her crafting projects why not pop over to her blog.

I'd love to see what you make with your grab box goodies or in fact anything purchased from the S J Crafts Shop. E mail a photo or a link to your blog. My e mail is:  sarah at s j papercrafts dot co dot uk (obviously remove the spaces and change the dot to a .) Just don't want loads of those webrobot thingys e mailing me too!!! lol!

There is another grab box coming soon so watch this space for that and also details of the OPEN DAY are now up on the website here
