Tickets 4 ways? A tutorial & Project Life Great Ouseburn Spring Festival

Tickets 3 ways by Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa (4)

Tickets anyone? A quick tip or two for you today…. and a Project Life page too….

Whilst I was crafting away on my last series of Project Life pages…. I had a bit of a ticket theme going on… The  Ticket Duo Builder punch and the That’s The Ticket stamp set were out and in full use!

But then I realised that I had other images/greetings I wanted to use but that did not fit into the 2 ticket sizes in the Punch (which are those to bottom and to right in the image above)… so my brain started thinking…. and here are a couple of other ticket ideas for you….

First up - using the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits dies – cut the frame then re-cut as wide as you need….. love that you can also get a cotton reel using this method!! (see centre)

But this one I LOVE!!! And it happened totally by accident…..

I was punching a Tag using my brand new Ornate Tag Topper Punch… the punch wasn’t open properly so the card did not go in all the way to the top – so I ended up with a semicircle notch at the top….

And then the idea dawned on me! So I cut off the rest of my Tag, stuck my card piece on a Post It Note and inserted the other side into the punch – lining up half way across the little circle and punched.

Et voila! A REALLY great ticket shape…. Love it when a punch does something you don’t expect it too…..

So cut a piece of card just 5cm (2”) wide by 2.7cm (1 1/8”) long – but of course you can use any length you need...! Then….

1. Place card piece on a small Post It Note – make sure the sticky side is face up… otherwise it will stick to the punch when you insert it!

2. Insert into punch.

3. Turn punch over so you can see the card piece… Line up about half way across the circular hole…and punch!

4. Pull out the post it note/piece of card…

5. Turn the card piece around the other way and place back on the post it note

6. Line up as before and punch…

But before I go…a quick one pager Project Life share…. and a plug….

Our village – Great Ouseburn- between York & Harrogate in North Yorkshire - runs a fabulous Spring Festival fundraiser each year… this year it is BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY… 4th MAY 2015.

 Project Life by Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa

With some fabulous Open Gardens, Scarecrow Trail, Craft Fair, Plant Stall, Duck Race, Produce stall, Homemade Food Caf├ęs, Barbeque, Pimms Bar & Posh Tombola on the Vicarage Lawn, Ice Creams, Church is Open, Woodland Walk, Nuzzlets animal rescue,  Morgan Car & Vintage Tractor Display, Raffle, Free shuttle bus, Free Parking.

A really lovely day out for all the family…

And this Project Life page is showing some photos from a year that we opened our Garden. I remember that it was one of those strange April days – gloriously sunny for most of the day with a lovely shower at the end – which ruined all my display samples!! You will notice that I sneaked in a Display board or two on the patio! Though I had to giggle at some of the projects on there…I have to admit that my crafting has come on a bit since those days!

But before you ask… no sadly our garden is not open this year…. so we will be busy elsewhere in the village this year…
