Handmade love with Tando shapes

Hello, my dear Tando friends! It's Irit here again and this time with my new banner made from Tando spools. I know, it's more like a  mini album, but I decided to make this banner using 3 of 6 shapes and I think it's a very nice project to embellish any craft room.
And here are all 3 shapes for a closer look

I mostly collaged   goodies here, but I also made  some heat embossing over the edges with clear and gold powders, made my own  altered pins and heat embossed altered paper roses.The paper line from MLS was just perfect for this project.

Hope you like it and see you next time with more Tando inspiration.

Squirrels and fabric?

Hello, I have been playing with fabric again.  It really is as easy as using paper, as long as it doesn't fray too much!  I have covered one of those really cheap little photo albums for my sister using the ~Squirrel Woodland Set~, which is gorgeous!

Its all fabric, apart from the glittered acorns :-D  Here is the whole set...aren't those mushrooms cute? I have saved those for another day!

Thank you for taking a look, please leave a comment as we love to see them, HUGS, Karen x

Case with a Mask

Need a simple and hopefully elegant card, the Tando Mask makes a great frame for an image or in this case a quote.   Dusters lightly blend colour over the top.

Mask very easy to use, just held in place by hand.

Flourish Ring Mask
  These masks are not flimsy but good quality acrylic that stands up well to a lot of tough treatment.

Mums Kitchen

Mothers Day is nearly here (in the U.K) , just a few days now to finish those makes!  Tando have brought out an ideal gift just for Mum, its a pretty little hanging which can be decorated to suit, which is what I have done.  My Mum's kitchen is old fashioned with yellow & blue featuring heavily.

I have used papers to decorate this piece and added a little kettle from the cooks set.

Thank you for taking a look, HUGS, Karen x

Live- love- learn with Tando

Hello, my dear crafting friends! Irit is here again and this time with my new and shabby banner.
I am just in love with those alterable Tando products and so should you.

The lower shapes were  made with stamping resist technique, than I used distress inks and stamped over with some brown ink. The upper part was collaged and embellished with Graphic 45 products, AC letters, some ribbons, buttons and a big hand made flower (old books, both Hebrew and English)

As you can see this is Must to have Tando product!

Village in a box!

Our Di Oliver is one clever bunny to have designed this one!!!!  A very cute hexagonal lift off the lid and there is a 3D village inside it!!!!  I had to have it hahaha!!!  I have used fabric for all except the fence.  Here is the lid...

This was so much fun to do and incredibly easy to put together too.  Go know you want one really!  Here it is nekkid...

I have used papers from Authentique's Gathering collection, along with a load of Mica Mist on this layout.

It features quite a few Tando Creative bits - leaf mask, bird on branch, grab bag of birds and book plate, all of which were coloured with Mica Mists

Home mini tray

Hello, dear crafty friends! It's Irit here again and this time with my very first house shaped tray.
I made it with one layer only (I just keep other two for my next  projects! LOL) and full of Simple Stories products.  Some Tim Holtz metal shapes were added and some Prima flowers (as always).
I just love the final result as you can never ever go wrong with Tando mini printers trays.
Those trays are MUST TO HAVE products! Just grab them all and enjoy your final results!
