Crafty Creatives Box 11 - Spoilers #CCBox11
It's my husbands birthday so I'm off today and he kindly opened the door to mr postie at 8.30 to get my box and his cards.
The themes this month is Glamour and the artcard is very Angelina Jolie!
Before I go any further, if you get this box and haven't opened it yet DO NOT open the tissue in the velvety pouch on your bed, near pets or where things can roll....I now have half the contents in and under my bed!
CCkit hair clip - not sure about this yet but may give it a go (I still haven't done the steampunk kit so it will go in my drawer of bits to do if I look creativity)
Beaded fluffy trim - I'm thinking of cushion trim with a black velvet cushion make from the fabric in this kit.
10 Swarovski crystals beads (I have 6 pink left...rest under bed)
Photo glue from stix2 - I have loads of stix2 adhesive now (I usually use silicone glue, tape pens and collall) I found photo glue was quite good on felt as it didn't harden it like pva does
8 stardust beads - very pretty, just wish I had more to so a whole bracelet of these (simple stretch elastic type) but think I'll either do a knotted bracelet or get some black beads and mix them in.
Lace stamp - nice for the inside of cards and on envelopes - I have some flock so may try flocking the stamped image
Ink pad - I don't get on with dovecraft ink pads unfortunately and sold all mine in place of memento ink pads as these are too wet for me and my stamps weren't crisp enough.
Bag of metallic star dust - very handy, I have some which I use a lot and like to die cut stix2 double sided adhesive sheets and attach the little balls on that way.
Fat quarter of black velvet - think as I said I'll use this as a cushion cover
Red rose pendent - may use with my remaining ring blank from the gothic box
Silver plated rhinestone faceted teardrops (first think I saw in the box and I love them!)
Findings - will use these with the teardrops for some nice earrings.
Overall it's a nice box but I am beginning to get too much stix2 in my stash and starting to get duplicates of things I own most of which I've sold when I've cleared out my craft room.
I think I'll see what the next box has in store and may re-evaluate as I want to do more stamping and colouring and also with all the projects I have to sew from the Great British Sewing Bee book!
