Mojo still AWOL. Reward offered.

Typical isn't it, I have the week off work and my mojo is missing. I spent 4 hours this morning making a DT card, finished it and then realised it didn't have any stamping on it. Not good for a stamping challenge! Cue one hastily stamped sentiment.
I still hadn't managed to make my July card for a swap, but finally managed to cobble something together. I shall share it after the recipient recieves it.
A very simple bit of crafting this evening to relax. I bought the Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Collection Christmas Feast Dies, recently from iconuk and decided to take them out of the packet. I cut red card, gold mirri and Hunkydory Mirridazzle and glued them on 5x7 card blanks. Super quick and easy. They may be my mass produced Christmas cards this year, they cut perfectly even with the mirridazzle which is a pain as it has a thick plasticy layer. I still had to poke a lot of bits out with the mirridazzle but they came away easily and quite therapeutically! I also bought the Noel set from the same collection, so might have a play with them later. I think the frames could be quite useful as they are not overtly Christmassy and so can be used in everyday crafting and they are different but interchangeable between the sets. I hope mojo turns up tomorrow! 


  1. It's always the same when you have time on your hands somehow your head just can't get round it Lol! Interesting dies Cara, they would make nice masks too. Happy crafting, Angela x

  2. That's a lovely die and looks great in all colourways

    Hope you find your mojo, just checked under my table ....sorry, I haven't got it!


  3. I hate it when your mojo goes walkies - and it usually comes back with a vengeance at the most awkward time! One thing I do when mine is AWOL is browse through a stack of old craft magazines - usually by the time I get to the end of the second I've picked up some ideas for a layout or a colour scheme, or have been reminded of a technique I'd forgotten, and I'm raring to go

  4. A super Christmas die Cara.
    Loving all your CAS seasonal cards.

    Hugs Erika. x

  5. I think that my Mojo and yours were last seen running for the hills hand in hand. I'm going through the throes of making things but it's a trial to be honest. Let's go out for a drink instead!!
    Hugs, LLJ 8 xx

  6. Hey Cara, I love these Christmas Cards..I really need to get on with Christmas. Mojo often goes missing when you really want it to be around :( My mojo came back in full force just before I left for London and I stayed up until 4am just making stuff because mojo was in the house..not ideal on a school night. Try doing the Copic class, I find classes help me ease back in. Have a great weekend. Cx

  7. Fabulous cards. I love them in all the different colours.

    Hope you find your mojo soon. It's so frustrating when it goes AWOL. xx

  8. Beautiful die and makes such lovey cards Cara,lovely colours too, Kate x

  9. Typical mojo to go off on his hols when you're on yours, reckon he's sunning himself alongside mine somewhere as he's cleared off too! These dies are fab, bet they're lovely cut from your shiny card.

  10. Well looks like Mojo turned up on thudding card you did, hope it sticks around. Nice die for this lot too. I think I know what you mean about that hairy glitter stock. I have a bit of that stuff and gave up on cutting it as it never seems to cut well, also find that using it as a background is pretty dicy too as it doesn't want to stick.
