"Pumpkin & Aubergine" and Scoreboards

Posted by Alice Morland
Pumpkin & Aubergine are the cats in the Daisy & Dandelion series, and they are next on our purchasing list, maybe we'll show you them in one of our videos...  Meanwhile we see that here in the UK, D&D are being showcased on QVC shopping channel on Tuesday 29th September.  It can also be watched online.

We use (and have shown in our videos) quite a lot of different scoreboards in our crafting, but one we always come back to is the Eazi-Scoreboard by Phyllis of DiamondCardCraft.  It is well-designed, particularly for UK sizes of card (A4, A5 etc).  Not just for scoring your cardstock neatly, it can be used for loads of things (use ideas from our Videos, or the boards' Project Books). The latest design is the Mandala board (which can be used over a lightbox as it is transparent) particularly useful for matting and layering, using the different shapes as a change instead of plain squares and rectangles.

We are intending to go to the craft fair at the SECC in Glasgow during October, so we hope to come back having bought lots of goodies!

Instead of my rubber-stamping I have been using large Christmas peel-offs on watercolour paper, then painting them with Twinkling H2Os; the paper is harder to paint than the 160g lightweight white card, but it gives a nice texture.
