Welcome to Day 1 of Christmas in July and I’m so excited to get this series started! Today, we are making a gift box for a mini bottle of wine.
I can’t believe it has already been a year since my last Christmas in July series and I’m just as excited to share this years series!
I’ve been craft shopping and here I am sharing it all with you!
Today’s tutorial is a cute folio with even cuter paper….I really enjoyed making this little folio and can’t wait to fill them up with tiny photos.
Moving on from Saturday’s blog hop, here is the tutorial on how to smoosh with the brand new Floral Statements from Stampin’Up!
I’m enjoying making my own Traveler’s Notebooks (or TN’s) at the the moment and I’ve started to look around for items that I can include or make them from.
This technique is very simple, but also very effective – especially when you don’t stick to one colour. Here’s how to make the most out of your circle blending tool or sponge dauber.
If you go on a hop today, you’re sure of a lovely surprise! Please join us for this month’s blog hop and instead of working from a sketch, we were challenged with a colour scheme.
There were two things that drew me to buy this stamp set – first, it had a large ‘Hello’. I love any sort of ‘Hello’ stamp and secondly, I adore sunflowers. Then I noticed the stamp set was called Dainty Daisies!
If there ever was a reason for owning a laminator, this project alone would be reason enough. If you have one? Go blow the dust off it. If you don’t have one? Don’t hold me responsible for another gadget added to your stash!
When I received my free die and stamp set with this month’s Die-Cutting Essentials (issue 25), an idea popped into my head. Why not cut all these shapes out in felt to play with? I remember a happy childhood, spending hours playing with Fuzzy Felt.
Last week, I celebrated my 6th wedding anniversary….why the card said ‘again’ inside? It’s actually our 17th year together and we celebrated our ‘6th’ a very long time ago!
I had so much fun playing with this collection from BoBunny for this month’s Die-Cutting Essentials Magazine (issue 25), especially the bicycle die! I just love how they have mixed pink & yellow pastels with black. And I do love to add black into most of my projects, so these papers were perfect.
I have a card that is very simple and quick to make today. Simple, but beautiful.
Today I have a paperbag tutorial to share with you today. This one is beginner friendly and all you need are 6 paperbags and your favourite papers to get started.
I have a new toy to add to my collection of punch boards…this one is the Pillow Box Punch Board and I’ve been having a lot of fun getting to know it. Here is a quick project along with a demonstration on how to use it.
We’ll be using our inks as watercolours today and this technique is perfect for those that haven’t had a try yet. This beautiful floral look is the easiest to achieve, so why not give it a try today.
We are fast approaching the busy wedding season and these beautiful little boxes won’t disappoint. Making your own table favours not only keeps the costs down, but are also your own personal touch to your special day.
Is there a stamp set that you tell yourself that you should play with more often? For me, it’s the woodgrain background stamp called Hardwood. After all, this woodgrain thingie is all the rage at the moment!
This project originally started as something else – which is turning out to be quite a habit! So this one turned itself into a wedding favour, but don’t worry…the original idea is still in my head and will appear at some point.
