I have learnt a lot in the last six months, my crafting journey had a change of route back in October last year when I tried and got seriously hooked on bookbinding. I have invested in a few good books and I am really enjoying the challenge of learning new styles of binding.
My stamping has had a quantum leap too, having attended a few classes and taken a step outside of my normal crafting zone, I have really taken my stamping to another level. I have resited gadgets for ages and have now aquired the following;
- Dreamkuts machine
- Crop-A-Dile 2
After much investment I have now got the complete range of Ranger Adirondack dye based inks, it has taken me three years to get them but worth it. MIL got me the Colorwash sprays for Christmas last year and I really want to buy some more alcohol inks and at some point the new Pigment inks from Ranger. It is soo much easier to DESIGN when you have co-ordinating products. I spent so many years fiddling around with odds n ends of inks and could only do projects using those colours. Now I can actually design, choose inks that I would like to use.
I have just recently bought the Inksentials White Gel Pen from Ranger for highlights and love that too. Shame I can’t get sponsered by Ranger, I love and promote their stuff a lot, wouldn’t that be great.
I am starting a weekly series of articles on essential products to make designing craft projects simpler. If you are new to crafting and feel overwhelmed by the array of STUFF available this should help you find your way. If you are not so new and just nosey (like me) then come back on Friday to see what products I can’t live without.
I have plenty of pictures to share, but they will have to wait a bit longer yet as they are all waiting to be sent to their recipients first. Soon though, soon.
Best wishes and thanks for reading see you Friday
