Country View Crafts Goody Box

I have spent ages contemplating whether or not to buy a goody box from Country View Crafts. It costs 14.99 but for the life of me I couldn't find a single review of one, bar a small blurb that someone loved the contents. So I bit the bullet and bought one. As always, delivery was almost instantaneous. I ordered it yesterday and it arrived this morning. Here are the contents.



Some wedding cake embellishments.


A wave shadow box.

Some ten second studio metal sheets - 12 in total, all A4 size


Three ten second studio moulds


Some embellishments. I like these as they will help when I get stuck for ideas for male cards


Some christmas tree shaped cards


Some double sided tape


Some glittery ricrac braids - green and silver


Some christmas flowers


A magazine. This came with it's own freebie, which was a project to make a recipe book


A project book, There are some gorgeous things in here


A lime shake n spray. Should be interesting!


Two wood mounted stamps. 




A bunch of papers. There are some beautiful designs here.

Overall getting a goody box is a no-brainer. You get so much here and, while admittedly it is from older lines, that is not necessarily a bad thing, especially for somebody who has not been crafting for years. All the stuff in here is new to me, and I can genuinely say there is nothing here that I don't want to use. I think my favourite items here are the tensecond studio things, and the shadow box as that was a complete surprise. 

If you like the look of these (obviously contents varies but there is a list of what you can get on the site) then you can find it here

Trying out some new dies

Well, one new die. I also tried out some black shrink plastic and butterfly dies to make some jewellery. The trick with doing this is to roll the shrink plastic and the die back and forth through your machine more than once. Black shrink plastic tends to be difficult to cut. Anyway, once I had successfully cut out the butterflies I shrunk them. The best thing to do is to shrink them on the lower setting. After they had shrunk, I painted them with the new Sparks paints I got just before Christmas, before assembling them into earrings.


The pictures don't show just how beautiful the butterflies are. It's a perfect way of doing a pair of earrings for someone.
I've also tried my hand at making a slider card. There is a mistake there, as I didn't position the background paper properly so there is a little kraft paper showing through, but overall it went well. With these ones, if you are using the spiral slider piece you need to make sure that you use foam pads in the middl…

A few completed projects...

So I finished the Tiger in the Heavens stitch finally. I have decided not to put the sequins on it, as to be honest on reflection it makes it look a little garish, and not right for the intended recipient.





So, one is finished and the next one has started. I have to say I am loving my cross stitch floor stand. It makes it so much easier, even if it is a bit cumbersome getting it up and down the stairs sometimes! Below is the next project.

I have had at least two people remark that it looks like a pair of boobs in a bikini top in the middle, but you can see from the rest of it that it isn't that - that is, unless Wallace and Gromit has suddenly become X-rated!
I've also made a card this week. I haven't been able to do much, as on Saturday I got a delivery of some new furniture, so my room is a little bit of a mess to say the least. Still, I got my G45 papers out and had a bash at a card.

As well as the G45 papers, I used a couple of SnipArt wings and some Lindy's embo…

....and I've run out of heart related puns....

First off, as always, the decluttering. All funkos this week (and next actually) They've gone to my brother.












Even my cute little Sauron!

Onto the makes. Haven't had a chance to make any jewellery yet and the stitch is not yet finished (on the final page now, which has the most french knots on) but I have made another heart.


I started by cutting two hearts out of some Tim Holtz paper. With the first I sprayed with green and brown Lindy's sprays, and glued it to the wooden heart. With the second I cut with a mixed media thinlit die on one side. It didn't work completely so I cut a bit away. I used texture paste with a brick stencil, then sprayed it with blue Lindy's sprays, adding a couple of drops of alcohol ink on certain bricks to darken it. 


I love Lindy's sprays - they call them magical for a reason!





I die cut loads of gears, painting them silver before attaching them to the heart. I added a couple of pieces of ephemera, a clock, and a wing I've had in…
