TIOT Feathered Friends

Hello Friends and Followers. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts.

Today is the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday where we will look forward to seeing your entries for the Feathered Friend Theme. If you need any ideas the team have come up with lots of different one so do pop over to the blog and have a look. You have 2 weeks to join us then we chose the Top 5 and you could be one of them and invited to be a guest designer sometime in the future.


This is what I made and I couldn't resist taking a photograph of it on one of Astrid's beautiful papers that you will find free on her blog.

This is how it started out

Can you guess what it is?

It is a little case for my i-pod and ear phones. I made this in bright colours because I left my i-pod and ear phones on the seat last time we went on the train. Vic saw them just in time before we left the train. No way will I miss seeing this bright little case.

Do't forget to join us with a tag at Tag Tuesday for our anything goes theme. Would love to see you there and you have another week to join in

Hope to see your makes soon

Love Chrissie xx

Tag and Collage

Hello from a beautiful sunny day here at the NE UK coast and I am hoping it is the start of a good week as we will be away until next weekend on the opposite coast for a change. I do have a scheduled post for Tuesday and hope to have a little internet time to do the odd comment but not sure about that until I get there.


At Tag Tuesday we have the theme Anything Goes and still over a week to make a tag of your choice and share it with us or if you make a tag for another challenge add it to us as well. Always love to see what you make.


Here I am still trying hard with my sewing machine to fasten bits of things to other things for crafting. It never seems to work for me so I have left on all the dangling ends to distract you from the sewing. The owl is one I coloured in an adult colouring book and he will be another distraction hopefully. A mop up page background 'sewn' onto green card

Moo Mania and More have dancer as their theme this time


I have two dancers and I hope you can feel the floating feeling that dance gives you. I danced for years and still would if I could find a partner. It really is the best feeling to float around a dance floor in the arms of someone who is doing the same thing. Vic has several 'left feet' unfortunately.

I would like to add this to Digitally Made as my third entry as they have Anything Goes for their first challenge.

Have a great week

Love Chrissie xx

Tag and Journal Page

Hello Everyone. A lovely morning here after all the rain yesterday. Thank you for calling in today and I hope you like what I have made.

At Go Tag Thursday the theme for this week is Tape Measure or Ruler. Good to know the week before what the theme will be for the coming week as it gives me time to think about it and make the tag early. 


I used the Tim Holtz measure stencil then coloured the he tapes with Distressed ink. The quote I found on Google and the own is a picture of my knitted tea cosy. He turns up on all sorts of crafty things.

Will link this to our Tag Tuesday challenge as well where Valerie has the theme Anything Goes so any tags you make just add us to your post.

Art Journal Journey have Gill as their host this month and the Elegance and Grunge theme is proving to be a winner for sure with some terrific ideas.


I did the elegance bit first with the ladies from DezinaWorld 15 where June kindly provides lots of free images for us to use. Then I made some grunge brushes to show how quickly elegance can be messed up. I know if I get dressed up I spill something all down my front--well maybe that's just me.

Have a great day all. We have 6 for lunch today so I had better get started.

Love Chrissie xx

Tag Tuesday, prize winner news and TIOT project

Hello Everyone and welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Great to have you pop in and thank you for your visit.

Time for another Challenge at Tag Tuesday and this time Valerie has chosen the theme Anything Goes. You have 2 weeks to make a tag and we would love to see what you make.

This tag started out with an old mop up page stuck onto it. Then I added drips of alcohol ink here and there. Next came the flowers and leaves cut out from a seed catalogue before making some mushrooms from a book page. The butterfly was cut out of a magazine as well. The mop up page didn't stick down too well so it has added extra texture to the tag.  

The winner of my prize for the Faces Tag Challenge was number 19 and that was  Gibby Frogatt. Well done Gill and if you let me have your address through Valerie I can send the prize to you.


 There is still another week to go in our 'Little Things Mean a Lot' challenge at Try it on Tuesday. Hope you will join in with us and make something that fits in with the theme. I have made a second piece for the challenge. Lots of other ideas from the wonderful team if you visit TIOT. Today the top 5 for the Transport challenge will be posted as well.




I made a domino book. The dominoes were sprayed with gold paint then concertina page added and decorated both sides with stamps and coloured inks.. Lots of ideas and tutorials online for this sort of book.

Have Fun

Love Chrissie xx
