Book of Time

Hello and Happy Friday to you! Gosh this week has flown by…

We have some more awesome inspiration to share with you here on the blog, first up today is Teresa Morgan…


So, how do you like the new stamps? I love the time themed sets and have created a zig zag book to show off the wonderful words in the set.



Front and back covers…



My pages and covers are coloured with Distress Oxide Inks. I used more Distriss Oxide inks to stamp the numbers in the background, and used Versamark ink for the stamps I wanted to emboss in gold







The sentiments are stamped with Ranger Archival Ink.




Stamps Used:


Ahead of our Time




Somewhere in Time




Amazing project! How awesome does the gold embossing look against the oxides.. love it! Thanks Teresa ♡

We Always Think We’ll Have TIME…

Hi there!

Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today sharing a rather special project she made with our NEW stamps…


Good morning

The new stamp sets really are awesome! They are larger sets, A5 size, and there is so much you can do with them.
I was like a kid in a sweetie shop, as I had so many ideas, when my sets arrived.


Somewhere in Time




Ahead of Our Time



I received the new stamps hush/hush a couple of weeks ago to make some samples with and today I am sharing my first project.

I made myself some very “cosmic” backgrounds using Distress Oxide inks on black card



I was aiming to make a galaxy with my inks.





I die cut 4 panels using my ancient but much loved Sizzix accordion die and added some stamping around the edges using the cogs and spring stamp which I gold embossed.



I stamped and decorated each panel centre. These words were white embossed.



I loved adding hands to the time swirl from the Ahead of time set..I fussy cut and embossed the falling man and woman; he is just about holding on to time 😉 but I think she has slipped into the vortex….I wonder if there is a black hole out there…?




I made myself some die cut cogs too which I altered with mixed media products and finished my card with these great quotes from the Somewhere in Time set.





and here is the big reveal of my Time accordion card…





As a member of their Design Team I get a real buzz seeing my work on television. I made 2 other “Time” projects for the show, which I will be sharing very soon. I was waving to them on TV.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for all the very kind comments that you take the “Time” to leave…pun intended 😆 I hope you got a chance to see the show..or set up your recorders to watch at your convenience. You can still watch on ‘catch up‘ over on the Create and Craft website… but today is your last chance! (You need to search for the June 9th shows).


Back soon.
Bye for now,
Jane x



Incredible project Jane… absolutely superb! Stunning background and the addition of the clock hands is awesome!

Time To Make Some Changes

Hello there! We have lots of inspiration to share with you over the next few days.. so many amazing things have been created!

It’s been such a busy week here, preparing for next week’s Create and Craft TV show, so apologies for not blogging for a few days.


It’s Helen here today sharing a project I created with some of our NEW stamps! I had so much fun making this and cannot wait to have some more free time to get inky!

I decided to use one of our brilliant MDF Monoliths, so started by cutting a piece of card to size, then created my background using brushos




I selected similar colour distress inks and began building up my background, randomly stamping the brilliant numbers stamp from the ‘Somewhere in Time’ set




Using some of my left over brusho background, I stamped some of the words from the same set and matted onto black card




Before stamping and embossing the awesome ‘inky bowler hat man’ from the ‘Ahead of our Time’ set, I added some stamped cogs for extra detail



The birds were designed to perfectly fly out of his hat so I just had to add them too!



I had painted the sides and base of my monolith with orange dylusions paint, and once dry I stuck my card down, ensuring the tabs were kept clear




I adhered the words using foam pads for dimension, and splattered some black paint to finish it off



I also added a few last splashes of brushos to the base to give it an aged look to tie in with my project



I am really pleased with how it turned out…



Hope you like it too!

Helen xx
