Blogging Everyday in June - Day 6: Favourite Craft Gadget & Summer...


So, it's Friday and I'm ready for the weekend now. The weather is going to be a bit up and down (or so I have heard from Mr Weatherman) in the UK, but I'm hoping for sunshine and a lot less rain over the next few days. So let's start Friday with a post...

Day 6: Favourite Craft Gadget or Craft Something with a Summer Theme

So I'm going for 1-and-half posts today! First off my favourite craft gadget is probably either my Texture Boutique or my Sizzix Big Shot.

The Big Shot I love because it has a huge amount of dies and folders to use and its still expanding. It's a great machine and so versatile. I also picked the Texture Boutique, which is basically just the embossing version of the Big Shot - where it just embosses paper and card, and if I purely just want to do that, then I will just use the Texture Boutique instead.

On my wish list at the moment is this:

A Silhoutte Cameo. I would loooove one of these. If only, if only! Better start saving the pennies! =)

And the other half of my post is Summer themed, but not quite a card. Its more of a graphic-inspired image I cam up with last night while messing about with one of my favourite apps - A Beautiful Mess



This would be really cute on a maybe a postcard or a Summer vacation card, with the bright colours and phrases too.

Hope you guys liked the post, please leave me a comment if you can!

Have a great Friday!

    1. Thanks Catherine! The Grand Calibur looks ultra compact for space saving! My Big Shot does take a lot of room up! x
