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

....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…

A new challenge

Not crafty related which is why it's in a separate post. When I mentioned about not decluttering in a recent post it got me thinking. When I have been successful in completing something it's because I have broken it down into manageable chunks, so I have decided to attack decluttering using the same method. So, from now until the day I can't decide what to get rid of, I will be getting rid of one item a day. Here are the rules.

1. It cannot be food - obvious reasons there
2. A photo must be taken of said item - there are exceptions to this rule. I am not going to subject you to a picture of my old underwear should that be an item I get rid of.
3. Once chosen I cannot change my mind - this is relevant when I am in the middle of filling up a bag to give to charity. I cannot dig through it, once an item is in there, there it stays.
4. I must explain here where I got it (if I remember) why I am getting rid of it and where it is going.

So, with that in mind here are the first i…

Time! Look where we are...

Wasn't going to post anything today, then I decided that it's been ages since I've entered a challenge! So I looked around and found That's Crafty were hosting a challenge with the theme of time. So here is my entry to that. See if you can spot the time link...


Got it yet? I decided to celebrate my favourite Time Lord, Doctor Who! (The Eleventh incarnation to be precise)
The star is symbolic of Galifrey. It's chipboard, painted with tarnished brass distress paint, stickled with the same colour, then edged with weathered wood distress pad. The blue symbols are foil, embossed and sanded. The embossing folder just reminded me of Galifreyan writing!

The background is clocks *(not sure but I think it's a Docraft set) to which I inked the edges in weathered wood and added some remnant rub ons.

Bow tie. Cos bow ties are cool! This was made from Sew Lovely paper.

You can also see a shrink plastic keychain Tardis here, complete with bead sonic screwdriver and key. Cos e…
