Evening. Hope everyone is having a good week so far. This is a little personalised wall hanger, which I have been working on today. I decorated a few cardboard beer coasters . which I asked very nicely if I could have from the local pub, and attached them to each other using craft wire. The papers are from Bo Bunny, Crafts too and Daisy do. I used my Cricut machine to cut the tags, letters and heart shapes. I have also used two shopping Anya images from the Greeting Farm. I coloured these in promarkers. I just love anything from the Greeting Farm, one of my favorite stamps companies. The craft wire and ribbons are from Hobby Craft. The pins are from Bee Crafty in Elgin. The bling I purchased on Ebay. Lots of fun making this. I am making this as a little stocking filler for my lovely neighbour Sherri's daughter Caitlin. She loves shopping and is a girlie girl so hopefully she will like it. Oh and my neighbour has four girls all together so I better get myself in gear and make the other three their hangers. :) Thanks for popping by.

Tilda decoration

So close to Christmas now and I am getting all excited. Still a couple of small bits and bobs to buy, but nothing major. Very organised this year. Did stress december shopping last year, and it was a nightmar, so decided to be good this year and get it sorted before december. Just got my tree up and still making decorations for my house. Here is a little project I made this morning.For Deep Ocean challenge this week I have chosen "circle" for my "C" challenge. I have used a Tilda image, which I coloured in with Pro Markers. The papers are from Berry Merry, by Jennifer Ellory. I used my Cuttlebug machine and some Spell binders to cut the circle shapes and made little stars (this is really easy, you can find a tutorial HERE ) Lots of fun to make this. My whole house is going to be full of paper things. :) Thanks for looking.

Hanglar gift card

Sorry, a bit absent this week, have had computer trouble. It seems to be working fine today, so here is a card I made this morning. I have used Forever Friends papers and some cute Hanglar images, which I coloured in with pro markers. The side board image is from Magnolia. The bling is from Ebay. The sentiment and embellishments were cut out from the papers. For this weeks My time to craft I have used two sentiments that are the same. Thought I'd just mention that. :) Love to make a scene on a card, so much fun. Thanks for looking and have a good weekend. :)

Let it snow!

Oh, getting excited now, almost finished my christmas shopping and my cards. Can't wait to put up the decorations and be all christmassy. :) This morning I have made a very snowy card. I used a little Tilda image and coloured her in Pro Markers. The punch outs and sticker border and all the papers are from The Nit Wits Heavenly Collection. The felt flowers are from Tesco's kiddie craft bit. I sprinkled some tiny sparkly confetti onto some glue at the bottom and on the flowers to make it look snowy and wintery. Thanks for coming by.

Living without you....

Oh what a soppy card I have made here. :) I decided to make a card without stamping today, so I have used sentiments and images on the papers and cut them out. The papers are from Paper Adventures (Carolyn Holt) and so gorgeous. The buttons and eyelets are all from old stash, that I came upon when I tidied out all my craft stuff. Really love it when you find something in the bottom of your stash and think "hey, this is just what I need". I did use some nest abilities to cut out one of the flowers, the one on the front are just a few circles that I handout and inked up. Did lots of taring on the papers, love the effect it gives. Yellow card stock is from the Paper Mill in Aberdeen. Pretty clean cut card for me, but really enjoyed making it. Have a good saturday. :)

My boys

Can't believe my boys are getting so big. It was over two years ago I put pictures up of them on my blog. The two biggest ones just had their hair cut today, and were really happy with the result. The little one won't sit still and yaps all the time, so I do his hair myself. :) I am so lucky to have these three. They are such lovely, helpful boys. Have a great weekend. x

Cotton Reel Christmas Decoration

Afternoon. Last week I bought gorgeous fabric ribbons from a local shop, and used it all instantly of course. I was left with a load of cardboard cotton reels, and thought what a waste to throw them, here I have decorated one to use as christmas decorations. Hanging in christmas tree, or on the wall or in a window. Haven't decided yet what to do with mine, and might decide to make some more. I have used scraps of Making Memories papers. The "25" I punched out with a SU punch. I did a lot of hand cutting, the hearts, tag and swirly scroll are all handcut. I used a lot of craft paper to layer all the cutouts and the image, which is a Hanglar image. I coloured her in with pro markers. The red ribbon is from Ewe and me and the yellow one is from stash. The pins I bought in Bee Crafty. I used craft wire for the pearls (pearls are from The Craft Factory) and decided them with some small silver flowers. Craft wire is great, it bends anyway you want. I used a tiny knitting pin to twirl the ends of the craft wire. Had a great time making this, even though there was a lot of work with small bits and bobs. Thanks for coming for a nosy. Have a great weekend.

Christmas Wall Hanger

Afternoon. Here is a little project I did this morning. It's a christmas wall hanger, another item to add to my home made decorations. :) For this project I used craft paper and the dotty paper I had in my stash box. Think it came with a magazine. The punch outs are from Making Memories, the fabric ribbon is from Ewe and Me, the pins are from Bee Crafty and the snow flakes are from Hobby Craft. I managed to squeeze in a little Tilda angel image too, and coloured her in pro markers. The little calendar is from Hobby Craft too. I attached the bits and pieces together with craft wire and made some little paper beads at the bottom. This project took me about an hour from start to finish so it was a fast one. Had lots of fun making it never the less. I am away to make some soup now for my boys when they come home from school starving as ever. Thanks for looking.

Card and matching bauble

Evening. Finally got time this evening to prepare a card and a christmas tree bauble for my lovely granny, that lives in Finland. She is past 90 and an amazing person, so I thought I'd make her something extra on top of her presents this christmas. I liked this weeks Mojo sketch so much, thought I'd be perfect for even a small project, like the bauble. For Christmas stamping all year the challenge is "your favourite sketch", I have a few favourites, but this one is definitely one of them. I purchased the bauble last year in Tesco's, it came in a pack of four. It was very cheap, if I can remember right it was £5 or less for the pack. The papers I used on these little projects are from Paper Adventures and The Paper Company Studio. For the card I used a little Tilda angel image and for the bauble her little star. I coloured these in with pro markers. The bling is from the poundshop, and the ribbon on the bauble from stash. On the back of the bauble I put a little picture of my three boys, her great grand children and I put some white tiny antique glass beads in the bauble too. They are from Mill Hill. There was a bit on hang cutting involved in this, but I also used my cuttlebug machine and some spell binders to get the shapes. Thank you for coming past. :)
