Blogging Everyday in June - DAY 10

                                               Craft blog every day June

I cannot quite believe we are a third into the challenge already and I am still going strong. I really enjoy the challenges and find they inspire me to try new things too.

Today challenge - Day 10 - is:

Day 10: Have a rant; go on get it off your chest OR Craft something that has the colour purple in it

I could have a rant about hayfever today as I have been struggling with it for the past couple of weeks. I know if I rant about hayfever I won't be on my own. So annoying to wake up with a feverish headache every morning, sneezing runny nose and sore throat. It seems to dissappear a little in the afternoon and then late hold again early evening. How many more weeks???? Aarrgghh!!!!

So instead of that rant - LOL - I have made something with purple in it:

I cut two pieces of purple card with this square scallopped hole Spellbinder die and put them to one side. Then I cut another two pieces of square purple card 14 cm x 14 cm. I scored both squares on the Crafters Companion box maker using the 1 inch groove. That means the box when assembled is roughly 9 cm x 9 cm and fits neatly into the die cuts. 

The box is decorated with a Lili of the Valley die cut image mounted with foam pads. The corners are decorated with a few gems, perls, ribbon and charm from my stash.

Off to see what the rest of you have made today!


  1. Love the box, Winnie! And cute image too! The added bling embellishments go really well with the purple! :) x
