Well its that time again and I've not posted anything since last week! Still I couldnt miss joining in Julia's WOYWW over at her Stamping Ground blog ,even though I've not had much time for crafting this week. We had a lovely time with our friends who were over from Spain at the weekend, as well as my doing a children's workshop on Saturday, printing bunting with a group of visually impaired children and their brothers and sisters. It was a fun day but I think I've been recovering ever since. So it's been a quiet week in the attic with just a little time to peruse my signed copy of THE BOOK which arrived yesterday. Lots of good ideas contained within and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in. At the top right, you can see my roll of ASBO tape, Its sticky backed aluminium foil and there's a great idea in Tim's book which I shall be using this for watch this space.

Here's a closeup of the ASBO tape. I got this from my local hardware shop, only £4.99! Because it's sticky backed you can attach it to any surface really easily, it can then be embossed and painted.


  1. Sounds like ou have been busy with your friends and workshops. Have a fab week

  2. My copy hasn't arrived yet and I'm waiting (in)patiently for it. What a great name for a tape - ASBO - does it have to go back in it's drawer every evening in case it gets into trouble?

  3. Hi Thank you for the visit. I too am waiting for my new book (although mine will not be signed) Looking fwd to seeing it now. And the ASBO tape sounds interesting! Love Ann's comment ;0) Dxx

  4. I've used that sticky tape you put under mats to stop them from slipping, on cards, it's surprising what's out there that will look good in a crafty make!
    aaaghh!! I gave up last week with your word variation code, wish me luck this week!! Have a great crafty time. Happy WOYWW!

    I also have that sort of tape - there are so many fabulous non crafting items out there for us to make use of.
