Jems July Blog Hop - Animals

Well it's that time of month again - time for our monthly blog hop,
 and as the title implies, this month, the theme is animals.

With the advent of the new catalogue we have oodles of fabulous animals available
for your crafting pleasure and I am sure if you hop round everyone's blogs,
you'll see some amazing projects that can be made.

This is the little menagerie that I made for our quarterly training back in January.
These were my swaps - I did take individual photos of the little critters,
but my iPad died on me and consequently, the pictures were irretrievable.
(This photo is one that Julie took - thankfully I now have a record of them all.)
All these animals were made using the Playful Pals stamp set and the matching 
Pyramid Pals Thinlits to make the fabulous pyramid boxes.

Here's a close up piccie of the cow, dog and mouse - I have managed to make these three again
as a reminder of my little menagerie!! You can see them in more detail on this close up.


Here's a group of little Foxy pyramids - I made these (and a few more!) as swaps for
the most recent  Quarterly Training get-together a few weeks ago.

Here's a close up - you can see the separate parts that make him up.
Foxy is available to buy as a bundle, comprising of the stamp set "Foxy Friends"
and the matching punch at a saving of 10% costing only £36.00

To see more animal makes, do please hop on to Tracy's blog
