A crafty itch...

Hi folks...I confess I can be so easily distracted from the job in hand...you know that feeling when you get a crafty itch and you just have to scratch it...on this occasion it was those new Layering Stencils that upset the crafty schedule. My old faithful well-used stencil storage...a Tim Holtz Blogworthy Link from way back in October 2013...was looking a bit tatty around the edges...
so time for a bit of a mini make-over...a new acetate overcoat should keep him looking good for another few years and applying adhesive behind the new stickers holds everything in place...
but he was beginning to bulge at the seams...I can identify with that feeling for sure...time to create separate storage for the Christmas Layering Stencils...
a killing 2 birds with one stone adventure and a chance to play with the Alphanumeric Dies...


But before the rest of the cubbyhole crew send me to the naughty step...it's back to the workshop list but first I need to recharge the old brain cells and make sure my specs are firmly fixed on my nose....yes you've guessed...it's construction time and there are instructions involved.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
