Tweedies Launch

Well, I'm a little late to the party as all my teamies started to show off their stunning samples yesterday, but as I could barely see through sneezing yesterday, you've had to wait a little longer for me - sorry.

This new collection from Crafters Companion launches tomorrow (12th January) at 8 a.m. with the lovely Fiona on Create and Craft TV.  I have to confess that I did not instantly fall in love with this collection as I have some of the others, it really is a bit different, but I think thats what Crafters do really well, take the unusual and make it into something infinitely craftable.  As I started to work with the images I found more and more that I really loved and the creative juices kicked in.  The Tweedies collection is created by the same lady, Abigail Mills, who did the Halcyon Days.

This first sample is created on an A4 sheet folded longways and is actually created from one of the card companions, which now come on two sheets so you get lots of alternative toppers and, as you can see lots of embellishments. I also used a bit of Neenah Desert storm for matting on the base (with one of the backing papers), some glossy accents and a brad, but other than that, it's all one card companion.

Like I said, I now love this CD, it's going to be a great go to for those people who 'don't do cute' (odd, but there are some people out there!).

Anyway, for now I'll sign off, but I'll be back with another sample tomorrow, and don't forget to tune in and see Fiona tomorrow morning.
