Sick, Sick, Sick... The Perfect Wallet For It!

Good evening,
I don't know how you spent Mothers Day but I did some crafting and went on one of my favourite blogs, Sabine's blog.  Love her and everything she makes.  So this is what I made....
 Now I am already for winter.  Sabine has a great tutorial on how to make them.  I have now given two away as I think they are the cutest present.  The only problem is that our tissues are bigger!  The newspaper print is the same size as Sabine's and the other two are slightly different sizes as I had two different packs of tissues but it really isn't that hard to just add a little extra length to most of your paper.
 The decoration inside, holding tissues, lollies and a tea bag
 closer look at the sentiment
 Now you can see what is inside
 On to newspaper print

And the look at the back.  So easy to make you will want to make heaps.
Thanks for stopping by.......

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day
I hope everyone has had a lovely Mothers Day.  I had my cup of tea in bed and that made me extremely happy.  It is always the small things isn't it!!  I just loved it and of course I got some little gifts from the school stall which were lovely.  A friend and I made these with the class, which I absolutely love.  I think she found them on pinterest but I am not sure.  Of course when I got home I made some (three) for my Mum and then some for me (because I love them so much).  They would even be great as Christmas presents.  I am in love with these pots.....
 A couple of rolled flowers using Stampin' Up dsp, Christmas pack though you wouldn't know it!
 A closer look.  I did use the glue gun to adhere the raffia and flowers
 And what good is a message without a drawing, even if you have to do it yourself!
 I forgot to mention that they are chalk board painted so we can write messages on there all the time.
I had bought these flowers for myself and even though they look gorgeous is the pot I am not sure if I am going to put herbs or flowers in them!!!  Decisions, decisions....
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely rest of your day....

Decadent Birthday Cake and Box of Cards

Evening all,
I know, I know, two days in a row, who would have ever thought that would happen again.  I do have things to show you but like I said I misplace instructions and I do always want to share those with you.  So on to what I am showing you now..
A birthday cake I made for a friend.  I have found this amazing site and this woman makes the most amazing sweets.  My mouth was salivating as I looked through the pages.  This is no where as nice but I was impressed with myself and her icing tastes like mock cream which was very easy to spread and to keep its shape.  Make sure you have a look by clicking here.
This is what I gave to Roylee
 A box of cards and I will try and post instructions over the next few days.  I did manage to get the box out of a piece of A4 by adding a little extra to the front of the box for the lip to tuck behind the flower.
 Some cards for the males

 Kids cards, I know.  I could have made them with more colour but at the time I was going for the plain for affect but after I wasn't so sure that that was the affect I was really after.

 And of course some girlie cards.  I love this stamp set and was so happy to use it again.  I did case quite a few of these cards off pinterest and when I find the names (yes that is right, they are tucked away somewhere - just wanted to get them up for you!!!) I will let you know.

Sorry, it looks like I have two photos of the same cards but when I try and delete one, it won't let me.
thanks for stopping by and have a lovely night.....

Tags for a Friend

Hi again,
Yes two in one night but I had to finish off with something other than Easter so I wanted to show you these tags I made up for a friend for her birthday.  I am always looking for tags and think other people are probably doing the same thing so I made her half a dozen male and half a dozen female ones.  Quick and simple using a piece of A4 and cutting them 2" wide and trimming of two ends.
 I love the beautiful wings embosslits folder and use it all the time.  Another favourite is the itty bitty shapes punch pack, these punches are just the right size for flowers.
 Two retired sets but I can't bare to part with them so expect them to pop up every so often.
Thanks for stopping by again, lol.....

Boxed Easter Goodies for Easter Tree

Hi all,
Well I have finally got my act into gear to do another post.  My Easter tree I promised with the boxes of decorations I have made up, ready to give out next year.  Unfortunately I am only showing you two of the five boxes that I made as the other three are still waiting for decorations!!!!  I know, but these were very time consuming to make.
 Unfortunately not a great photo and the branches were a bit iffy!  I have the pink box I previously showed you and one of the new boxes with all the bits and pieces on the tree.
 Box number one decorated, I wanted to keep it clean and crisp for Easter.
 The flight of the butterflies.
 A closer look at the boxes.
The top of the tree.
I know we are a way off Easter but I put so much time and effort into these I just thought I should show you.  I have also been busy making presents for friends and teachers so I will be posting those as soon as I can.  I try and write directions for everything I do and I do have the box instructions, just not that happy with them but if you would like them just let me know.
Thanks for stopping by and I promise there will be no more Easter creations this year.
Have a lovely night........
