Thanks for popping in!
I am writing really fast,
because we are driving to Frankfurt at 4 in the morning,
and well. Ask me if I’ve packed yet!
But before we head off to the very exciting
Paperworld Trade Show,
I thought I would showcase
two rather fabulous brand new Groovi plates before I go.
Not been seen anywhere else.
Not been sold anywhere else.
First, the Key to my Heart plate.
Also available as a stamp set:
But this evening I’m going with Groovi and Parchment.
That’s what we’ve been asked to showcase at Frankfurt too.
Quick and simple step by step.
Pick a padlock, so to speak…
Make a frame with the square nested framer.
Got a rectangle nest coming next time I’m on the telly.
That will be so much easier than sliding along to extend!
Now here comes the next brand new plate.
This is a MUST HAVE
Yes, it is exactly the same as dear Jayne’s frame,
only much smaller, so the alphabet is the same
but quite a bit smaller,
and the nested squares round the outside
are an extension to the regular A5 nested squares.
A few people requested the frame in a smaller size,
to make smaller cards.
Your wish is our command!
Here’s what I want to write.
Fits a treat using the smaller letters.
Even got room for one of the keys up the side.
Stop as you go down the inside groove….
and add the heart key element at the base.
There are 5 to choose from.
In fact, let’s use them to build a wall.
Bad turn of phrase just now.
Add a few boxes round the frame using the nested square.
Random is good.
Now to pick a paper.
That will speed up the colouring process no end.
Told you I was in a hurry!!
Loving the papers…
Found two matching pens.
Distress Markers work a treat on parchment.
Because they are translucent, you don’t block out the background entirely, just change its colour.
great price on the whole collection.
Colour in from behind.
I addedd a light pink here and there too. Spun Sugar.
It’s in the set too.
Cut around the outside with a ruler and blade.
I wanted to picot cut all round the key detail,
but I haven’t got 24 hours to spare!
I think it looks just fine like this too!
Mounted on a piece of the light blue parchment.
That’ll have to do.
Must pack my kit and get some sleep.
Dave, Paul and I are travelling together.
Wish us luck.
Love & Hugs,
