Fiskars Makes...Day 1

Hi folks...talk about being saved by the bell or in this case the punch. Isn't it strange how things turn out...just when I thought that the blog posts for the next few days would be filled with loads of waffle or I might have to ask the Furry Boy to step in due to the lack of crafty stuff available to share..oh yes we are still in hush hush top secret sample making mode...FISKARS come to the rescue...the samples I made for the launch of the brand new 2013 products at Stitches are now on the FISKARS new website so I'll be sharing the projects I made with the AdvantEdge Punch System and the Interchangeable Border Punches over the next few days...you can see the tools in action HERE and HERE

Flower Garden AdvantEdge Punch which comes with the AdvantEdge Starter Set
NOTEBOOK
and Music Border Punch...

CALENDAR
WINDOW ORNAMENT...

along with the Banners Border Punch...
I have to confess I'm becoming a little bit concerned about the frequency of my Mrs Numptie senior moments...I had a fun morning with my lovely buddies Debbi and Charlotte at The Papeterie on Thursday...lots of catching up chat with coffee...booking up demos and workshops for 2013 and a little bit of crafty shopping...top of the shopping list was to stock up on my must-have cardstock...the fabulous 300gsm Diamond White but guess what...I was ever so slightly distracted by the 50% off everything Christmas Sale and arrived home minus the essential item but it's not all doom and gloom....lookie...lookie what I managed to grab in the sale...
yes Timmie's fabulous Bottle Brush Trees...HALF PRICE and all is not lost...I can always wangle another morning out next week to rescue the cardstock. I'll be back tomorrow with more Fiskars Makes...

  10. Looks like you've been ever so busy & I think your brain is allowed a bit of OFF time after all that - the Diamond White will be there next week but the bottle brushes wouldn't have been!

  20. Beautiful projects, really love those punches, Fiskars are such a great company. The photo of the deer and the snowman is definitely from Stranger In The Woods. It was all shot just down the road from me in Kensington Metro Park by two wildlife photographers who built the snowman, took photos of the wild animals reaction to it over a period of time and produced the visually stunning book Stranger In The Woods. It made the best seller lists a couple if years ago.

    Hugs
