Hello Ladies
Not long now to our wonderful craft break in Westport
So looking forward to catching up with everyone.
On Sunday 31st of March.

I need to say a Great Big Thank You.
 To Crafter's Companion.
For sending me a replacement set of leads for my
 Go Gemini Electric Die Cutting Machine 
I misplaced the leads, and want to bring the machine
 with me to Westport,
To let the ladies try it out.
 As I am using quiet a few die-cuts on the projects.

Gemini Go
Has 3 x 6 inch plate
Grteat for all the small die cuts.

I also have the Junior Gemini Machine 
Which I love, as my hands are getting really bad with arthritis.
and having the electrical machines takes the pressure off my hands.

Gemini Junior 
Has an A5 size Plate

A Few cards to share today
I made this project at Dorota's Class in Newbridge
But decided to change the tags into Cards
The Theme for the workshop was Alice in Wonderland
To be honest I am not mad about Alice in Wonderland 
I remember as a child going to see it in the cinema, 
and really didn't enjoy the film
I find the original art work scary. 
so didn't use any of the characters from the kit.
Photo hanging rail

2 of my completed tags



This was the kit, but the 12 by 12 papers were extra


These were the handmade foamiran we made for the project,



I went for a Teatime look
and uses the graphics from the paper pack and kit
to create my cards




The beautiful little chipboard shapes are available from
14 Craft Bar in Newbridge.
