Top Note Gift Set

Wow, it has been so long and I am yet again sorry about that.  Funny how a little change in your life is really bigger than you expected.  I am trying hard to get back into my craft (unfortunately it has just taken me a while to get the time), but I was working over the weekend and yet again tonight.  Which is the reason I am posting as I have almost finished this big project that I am hoping to share tomorrow or the next day!!!
So I still have a couple of projects up my sleeve before I disappeared and it is another set.  I did manage to make quite before I went walk-about, I just haven't had the time to post.
 This is not a very clear picture but here is the set
 I cased this from Two Paper Diva's, they generally have a Freebie Friday and have posted some great tutorials.  I love giving gifts like this as they can keep on living on (if you get what I mean, lol)
 My card to match the Top Note Packet.
 I so love this box, I cased it from Brenda Quintana, while she made a Christmas box mine is just a general gift box
The whole set yet again, and for some reason this one looks clearer.  I am a little time poor again tonight but just wanted to get back on here and say hi :).  If you need any information please just let me know, or if your would like me to do a tutorial I would gladly do that too.
Anyway stay tuned over the next couple of days for what I am in the middle of making.
Have a lovely evening and thank you so much for popping on by x

Matchbook Clip Holder and Cards

Hi all,
The end of our school holidays is so close now and I am a little sad that it will be back to all that rushing, no more sleep in's!!  On the other hand I am really looking forward to getting back into routine.  But on to another kids set I have made....
I am a big fan of Greg Sukendro and these are a couple of cards that I have cased from him.  The matchbox at the back is from a tutorial by Two Paper Divas, love their work too.
So card number one with strips cut from the side and curled around a pencil.  I have backed this one with soft subtles dsp and used a retired stamp set for a tiny touch of sparkle.
Card number two is cutting two strips down the middle and curling to opposite sides to create a love heart, same dsp at the back, ribbon and lucky limeade ribbon and dsp with whisper white card.  I have also used the teeny tiny sentiments.
Now for the matchbox, have to say I am a little partial to matchboxes, think they are always so cute.  I have used the boho blossom punch and Itty bitty shapes punch pack with pearls in the middle of the big one and crop-a-dial small circles for the bitty punch.
And this is what is inside the matchbox, three paper clips.  I went for the flower theme but would like to do one for the boys next.  I thought this would be a gorgeous present to gift.
Thanks for stopping by............

Some More Boxes And Candles

This evening I am showing you the other boxes I made and the inside, completely cased from Sabine (she generously has all the instructions on her site, and they are very easy to understand).  I think I will have to put her on my favourites as I keep visiting her blog, very inspiring.  I so love these boxes and a couple of friends were over and thought they would be great gifts to give that extra special person.  So here they are....

 Sorry this stamp set is discontinued but continues to be one of my favourites.

 For the man (or one of my friends said a female would still like it!!!! (still out on that one!)

And my favourite.  Love the stamp set (also one of my favourites) and the little flowers (dazzling diamonds int he middle of them for a little bling) and my favourite colours too.  The candles are so easy, I have been wanting to make them for a couple of years.  You have to try them, so so easy.  I will be making plenty more of these.
Thank you for stopping by and if you would like any further information on anything just let me know.
Have a great night/day......

Great Gift Box And Paper Flower

I have been busy the last couple of days with holiday commitments but I think I told you a couple of friends (stampin up demontrators) came over and we had some fun.  I can't show you a couple of the cards as they are non stampin' up product (even though they were cute).  But Tracey made a flower that Georgie had previously shown us and I made a cute box (directions from Sabrina).  So here is what we made...
 All three of them together, Tracey's Mum didn't make one :(, sorry the photo is a bit blurry)
 Tracey's box and flower
 Sonja's box and flower, and she added twine to wrap around a brad.
And my box and flower.  I was really out of it (was still really upset over Creamy disappearing - our pet Rooster who was more like a dog) but tomorrow I will show you the ones I made the next day and what I put inside them.
Thanks for stopping by.............
