Still here :)

Hi all,just to say i am still around but a distinct lack of crafting mojo at the moment so no new projects to add to my blog. Am meeting up with some crafting buddies on sunday and hoping that will re awaken my mojo as its in hiding for sure.

Blog Prize and Bristol Craft Meet Scrapbook

Hi all, well came home today to be greeted with a lovely gift,my blog prize from Diane who over on her blog On the Cards had a competition to quess where she was going on her mystery tour mini break, had arrived and it was like christmas with all the goodies inside. Thanks Diane will have fun with these.
On Sunday went again to the Bristol Craft Meet organised by Sue and had another great day with fab company and projects.
Made a scrapbook using a travel sweet tin and lots of circles! Had fun cutting out and decorating and really pleased with the end result. Also had a play with distressing a tag and have found a new toy (stampin up spritzer) that i must have which i used with my promarkers to colour the poppy on the tag.
Well off for a nosey on Docrafts and too do some blog hopping,thanks for popping by,x

Inkscape project and first svg file

Hi all,well knowing how much i like to tinker on the pc and with scal (surecutsalot) for my cricut, sue from docrafts suggested i download inkscape and have a play which i did. Well to be honest was a bit daunting at first and some of the tutorials very off putting but found this one and after a initial hiccup ie not reading it properly have spent a happy 2 hours following their doll tutorial and making my own version. This is now a cutting file but shall leave the cutting and tweaking bit for tomorrow as a bit brain dead....lol
So if you want to stretch those brain cells then inkscape is the thing for you,here is the link to download it and its free.Basically you make something using lots of shapes and those eyelashes were fiddly....lol. So have a nosey and look at the tutorial to see the differences in theirs and mine and yes i didnt do the blush on her cheeks :)
