PurplePoppy Crafting

My crafting photos are now on the main blog page.  I usually take part in a crafting challenge each Wednesday, so that's the day you are most likely to see new creations.

Here are some recent makes:


Couldn't get the card below to turn round.

These Toppers also have the theme Thank You, but are for a different swap.



Got myself some artificial Sweet Peas, but the only vase I had suitable was this very plain one.



I used some flower punches on double sided sticky sheets.



Decorated the vase.



This is the end result.  I am pleased with it, but after I had done it I remember that I had a set of four very ornate punches.  Might do it again in the future.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
Thought crafters might be interested in this storage idea.  I have used mine for punches and wood mounted stamps.


Just got to get my un-mounted stamps sorted now.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Recent cards.  Several of these cards were made with toppers that I received in swaps.
