And the Winners Are...!

I think we have just about recovered from the craft fair at Elsecar. And WHAT A BRILLIANT time we had!! 

We had lots of our lovely ladies come to see us (thank you ladies **waves**) plus other SU demonstrators, friends and family.

The fair was held over two days (the longest one we have done) but it was so much better than having to set up AND clear away all our items on the same day.

We are DEFINITELY doing the next one, so put 15th & 16th October in your diary and come and see us for a natter!!! 

The winners of our prize draw were
First Prize - Tracey from Sheffield
Second Prize - Marilyn from Horbury
Third Prize - Denise from Rotherham

Well done ladies, hope you all enjoy your goodies!

Heres a picture of another of the decorated boxes.  This one is made using Crumb Cake cardstock which has been distressed on the edges and then run through the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  I inked the raised areas of the embossing folder before running throught the Big Shot and glueing it to the box.

I ruffled the Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon before securing it to the edges of the lid and added a die cut Top Note shape which had been stamped with a sentiment from the Occasional Greetings stamp set (the edges were sponged to give a little definition).

The butterfly was die cut with the Beautiful Butterflies die with Crumb Cake cardstock and then stamped with the En Francais background stamp.  The edges were sponged with ink and a little strip of Crumb Cake Seam Binding was added before the layers of the butterfly were secured to the box.

I loved this box and was gutted when someone bought it.  Mind you I did well - it didnt sell until Sunday afternoon (partly because I kept hiding it!).   I just hope its gone to a good home - sniff!  I may just have to make some more...

Thank you for stopping by.



  1. Ooh this is just gorgeous! I don't think I would've wanted to part with it either ;o) Glad the craft fair went well. Lisa x

  2. Oh Jan, it was so funny seeing you keep moving this so that people couldn't buy it! And how upset you were when someone finally did ... and no wonder, it's gorgeous. Well, you're just going to have to make another now aren't you ;-)
