Crop-a-Dile Wars

Morning Custard Lovers :)


I'll try and keep this brief, as this is the first of three posts I have going live today!

Jane has chosen a rather fabby new Challenge for you over at Cupcake this week... Something in the Eyelet. Simples really, you just need to include some eyelets on your project. We have stash generously provided by Crafts U Love and Tickled Pink Stamps up for grabs. Pop over and check the luuurverly work from The Cupcakes.


Last year, I bought a Crop-a-Dile. Mainly because I do the majority of my crafting at night time, and I worried about disturbing the neighbours by setting eyelets at one in the morning. Not that Naughty Nursie would have been bothered by me banging at one in the morning. ;) But I digress!

The first time I used it to set an eyelet, on a more or less completed project, things did not go well and I ended up remaking a hefty section of card, without eyelets. My fault, I should have done a dummy run first. The Crop-a-Dile has been an expensive hole punch, ever since.

Jane's Challenge encouraged/ forced me to do battle with the Crop-a-Dile again, and look, I won! Turns out, I just needed to twizzle the thingy round...

I'd like to enter this card at the La La Land Customer Gallery.

Hmmm, I have one of those but never use it, might have to pull it out myself. Love the DAD sentiment on the card, need to get me that die set.

Super card! Love this little guy on his perfectly Fluff layout! So are you saying you don't recommend the CaD? It's something I wondered if I should have? Of course first I have to find my eyelets. I have four sets of 5 stacking pots of them in every colour (except, of course, the colour I will want to use on any given project) and I can't find ANY of them. How can I have lost 20 containers? Hugs, Lesley
