Owls & Birds

This weekend was spent at Newark Air Museum for the event called Cockpitfest (a gathering of aircraft cockpits and other displays).

As usual it was a great weekend, and the weather improved for Sunday :) which was a very big bonus.

I had very quickly been working on creating a number of pads and post-it-note pads featuring the Stampin' Up punches 'Build a Bird' & 'Build a Owl'. The good news is that due to the size of the pads I was able to use a lot of scraps to create both the owls & birds, many of the pad covers were also created using part sheets of card from my bits box.

From Monday through to Thursday last week I was working like a mad thing.  However in the end it was worth it.

This is what they looked like sat on the table Saturday morning...

I just love all of the bright colours.  The Post-it-note pads sold better than the pads, but I was still pleased.  I now need to make some more before our next event :)

Happy Crafting.

WOYWW - 12 June 2013

It has been a while since I last joined in a Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday... if you are not sure what I am talking about have a look at the Stamping Ground blog to find out more.

As for my desk this week here it is...

Earlier this week I had used my Stampin Up 'Build a Bird' punch to create a number of little birds, I then cut 1 3/4" circles for them to sit on.

I have been meaning to have a go at creating Post-It-Note holders for a while, and finally got stared.  Once the birds were created I cut card to match the co loured pads (purchased in a block of 4 colours from Asda).

This is what the 8 Post-It-Note holders looked like when finished.  All I now need to do is to put them into bags ready for an event at the weekend at Newark Air Museum where DH & I will be with out Owls.
