It’s so very nearly the weekend…

Happy Friday all! It’s been a testing week to get through – work’s been very busy and we’re still trying to find time to finish off the mammoth project that is the redecoration of the landing, hallway and stairs at home. I’ve managed to find precisely zero time for crafting this week, so I'm desperately hoping I'll get an opportunity to do some this weekend!

In the meantime, here is the swap which I created for my last team training session – the theme was ‘the colour coach’ – we all randomly picked a colour combination and then had to create a shoebox swap sample based upon it. Mine was certainly celery, soft suede and pink pirouette.


I used the elegant bouquet embossing folder to add texture to the certainly celery layer, and created the flower using pink pirouette DSP from the subtles stack and the fun flowers die, following the tutorial created by the fabulous Sarah-Jane. The sentiment comes from the hostess set Afterthoughts, coloured using the soft suede marker.

Next up we have Bec’s sample, which uses pear pizzazz, rich razzleberry and tempting turquoise. She’s also used the vintage wallpaper embossing folder, pocket silhouettes and the little butterfly is from the flight of the butterfly stamp set.


And finally Elaine’s sample, which features a combination of pretty in pink, wild wasabi and early espresso. colour_coach_swap_elaine

She’s used the square lattice embossing folder to add texture to the pretty in pink layers, which are stamped using the greenhouse garden stamp set and edged with the eyelet border punch. the butterfly is punched from some confetti white cardstock and coloured using a sponge dauber and a little pretty in pink ink.

Well, I'd better stop blabbering and go and get ready for the last working day of the week – see you soon!
