Artist Trading Coins

I have been creating a lot of artist trading coins recently, they can be quite addictive! Artist trading coins are 2.5 “ circles, which are decorated in any way imaginable. They can be made from mdf, chipboard or thick card. I have been using the mdf ones, but I have recently ordered some blank chipboard at coins for a change. You write your usual artist details on the back as you would for the more traditional artist trading cards. You then of course swap them with other  artists.

I thought I would share some of my coins and ideas.

I edged the coins above with pearls.

I heat embossed these Classic Pooh stamps. These stamps were some of the very first stamps I owned.

I edged them with some bead gel.

I heat embossed these flowers, and added little pearls to them, and edged them  in more white pearls.

I created the background for these coins by making a lace design on my gelli plate, and laying the coins down onto it.

I covered these coins with some vintage pages from an Alice In Wonderland book.

Heat embossing various stamps to create a little scene.

Back to Classic Pooh to conclude.Thank you for visiitng xx

Goodbye Christopher Robin New Film

Wonderful news a new film about Christoper Robin,  A.A.Milne and of course Winnie the Pooh is being released in September.

Happy Birthday A.A.Milne

Today A.A.Milne would have been 135 years old! He of course created our Silly old Britsh Bear Winnie the Pooh. I have created this 3D scene in his honour.

Pooh was 90 years old last year but I had just had an op so I couldn't create anything then, so this is a double celebration!

I used a Tando Create Art Room as the base and Tim Holtz Treeline and Pine Tree Dies to fill Ashdown Forest with lovely trees. I covered the trees and the outside of the Art Room in Indigoblu Coarse Texture paste and painted them in various shades of green.

I watercoloured my stamped images of Christopher Robin and Pooh, Piglet and Hunny Pots. I stamped an extra balloon and used some wire to dangle Piglet underneath it, he is having a grand old time! Some glossy accents added to the hunny pots gave them a goooey glossy look.

Many Happy Returns of A.A.Milne's Birthday, thank you for visiting us on this Special Day in Ashdown Forest!

In A.A. Milne's and Pooh's honour I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Pooh is 90 years old Commemorative Frame

Our Silly Old British and Much Loved Bear Winnie the Pooh, became the grand age of 90 on 14th October 2016. So I made this Enchanted Place to commemorate the occasion.

My Blog is called The Enchanted Place after the Enchanted Place in the Pooh stories by A.A.Milne.I Love, Love, Love Classic Pooh by E.H.Shepard and A.A.Milne.

I made this before I had the op on my finger, the good news is I am slowly getting movement back.I hope to be back crafting again soon!

I cut the template above in card and covered it in Modelling Paste, dabbing it with the spatula to raise it up a little. When dry I used Hot Coca and Peppermint Tea paints to cover it.

I found the silhouette of Classic Pooh and Christopher Robin online and printed it out. I then traced the outline and transferred it onto black card and cut it out.I adhered their feet to the top of the hill.

The frame was an inexpensive wooden frame, which I covered in Flitterglu and Chocolate Box Megaflakes.

I painted some card with Grandmas Teacup, Wimberry and Iced Gem paints. I cut it to fit the inside of the frame. I used black Archival ink to stamp the Pooh sentiment from the Caitlin Stamp set in the top right hand corner of the card.

I found some black number stickers in my bulging old sticker box, and I covered them with Megaflakes.

I picked some twigs and herbs from the garden and coated them in Slap it On. When dry I adhered them to the hill and the front of the frame.

Many Happy Returns Pooh!

Today Pooh is 90 years old!

Happy 90th Birthday Pooh!

Today it is 90 wonderful years since A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh book was first published. Our silly old British bear was bought to life by the extraordinarily talented E.H.Shepard. The stories have bought fun and happiness to many generations all over the world. I could not imagine my life without Pooh and friends in it!


"Pooh when I'm you know - when I'm not doing nothing, will you come up here sometimes ?"

"Just me?"

"Yes Pooh"

"Will you be here too?"

"Yes Pooh, I will be really. I promise I will be Pooh."

"That's good" said Pooh

"Pooh promise you won't forget about me ever. Not even when I'm a hundred"

"How old shall I be then?"

"Ninety nine"

"I promise"he said

Still with his eyes on the world Christopher Robin put out a hand and felt for Pooh's paw.

"Pooh" he said earnestly "if....if I'm not quite..." he stopped and tried again."Pooh whatever happens, you will understand won't you?"

"Understand what?"

"Oh nothing" he laughed and jumped to his feet "Come on !"

"Where?" said Pooh

"Anywhere" said Christopher Robin

So they went off together. But wherever they go and whatever happens to them on the way, in that Enchanted Place on the top of the Forest a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.

A Pooh Takeover!

Oh goodness my crafting blog has been taken over by all things Pooh for his 90th Birthday week! Today I am sharing a few Lovely Pooh Bears. Pooh Signatures by Deans Bears. Deans is the oldest British teddy bear company. They started making their gorgeous bears in 1915.

Gabrielle Designs made these wonderful Pooh sets. They were also famous for making their Paddington bears. Sadly they went out of business in the 90's.

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh,” he whispered.

“Yes, Piglet?”

“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw, “I just wanted to be sure of you.”

Classic Pooh Stamps

I am missing my crafting so much, I have been doing some sort of craft or other since I was a child.I find it is very therapeutic and helps to try and take my mind off everything.

As I am a huge Classic Pooh fan, I am sharing something Classic Pooh everyday in the run up to our silly old British bears 90th birthday on 14th October. Today I am sharing my collection of Classic Pooh stamps, some of them are decades old! I love them all!

Below is a whatnot I made with them, it was the first thing I ever had published!

When I get back to crafting which will hopefully be soon, I must make more of the things I love and enjoy making.

Thank you so much for visiting I hope to see you again soon - lots more Classic Pooh to come!

"What day is it?", asked Winnie the Pooh

"It's today," squeaked Piglet

"My favourite day," said Pooh

Free Cath Kidston Pooh Printables

It's not long now until our silly old British bear is 90 years old on the 14th October! Cath Kidston recently released a new pooh print (unfortunately it was Disney Pooh and not the original Pooh as drawn by E.H.Shepard - still lovely though !) They now have free Pooh Printables on their blog to celebrate their new release which sold out in record time!.

I am missing my crafting a lot, I am having my wound checked tomorrow and hopefully after a course of therapy I will be able to use my right hand again. It has been a challenge steering my wheelchair left handed, everyone dives for cover whenever I start to move!

Even though I can't craft just yet... I will post lots of Classic Pooh things this month.

Hope everyone is having a good start to Autumn!

Here is a very good quote from Eeyore
