...or two

Posted by Picasa
Appologies for the alignment...I'm still waiting for my computer to be sorted...

I just love printing on ribbon, you can choose and name and any sentiment.

So, decide what you'd like to say and type it in to a word document, change the font and change the colour if you'd like.

Print on to a plain piece of paper

Using repositionable glue (I use the green tombow stuff from Stampin' Up!) stick a line across and just beyond the type you've just printed.  Leave the glue to go tacky if you're using tombow.

Position the ribbon you wish to print on on top of the glue covering the whole area of the type.  make sure its straight.

Return the paper to the paper drawer or feed and reprint without changing wour settings. 

It may take a few goes to feed the paper in the right way so practice first without the ribbon. 

The less shiny the ribbon the better the print...the one I used here is satin and organza from Stampin' Up! so the print is fainter on the satin.  I would suggest that you don't try to reprint over the ribon as it could lead to either the colour spearding or the type moving slightly.  Have fun trying and let me know how you get on!

A Christening...

Posted by Picasa

Here's a post I started earlier, before the computer crash....I hope it keeps you coming back for more.  Don't for get the Farmer's Market tomorrow

It's Christening season, here's a special one I created last year using Baja Breeze.  The easel card format makes the card so easy to adapt for any name.

Christenings part too coming soon.

I'm so sorry I've not been on here lately, but my computer as crashed, my 11 year old laptop, or is it 12, can't cope with the newer blogger format and frankly typing on my phone is quite a chore.  I hope to be back soon with more projects and perhaps a class or too.

I'm selling my creations and some new and second hand crafting goodies at the St Martins Farmers Market on Saturday mornings 9.00-12.15.  Come and buy or come and chat, there's excellent coffee from the charity cafe, along with loads of produce and gifts and bric a brac and books.  I might even get chance to set up a demonstration this week.
