Crafters Companion's Hunkydory Sneaky Peak #1


Hi everyone, I've been so busy lately that I've not had any time at all to blog, I've been trying to catch up on my DT work in my spare time (which there hasn't been nearly enough of, I can tell you) but I'm finally on top of everything (fingers crossed) and I'm hoping to catch up on everyone's blog at some point today...I've really missed seeing all your fab cards and other crafty and inspirational makes.

Anyway my post today is my DT make which is a sneaky peak at the brand new Crafters Companion's Christmas Hunkydory Kit which is just absolutely gorgeous and the designs are just stunning.

I made these small acetate gift boxes that you could hang on the Christmas Tree or could be given as teachers Christmas gifts maybe.

To get your very own mega gorgeous kit be sure to tune in to Create & Craft for the POW on Thursday 1st August at 8pm.

Clean & Simple

Clean & Simple


Hi everyone, I hope that you've all had a fab weekend and that the sun has shone for you. As you know I had my first little jaunt into the outside world on Saturday when I went out shopping with my mam, well as a rule I don't usually like doing the grocery shop but I can honestly say that I enjoyed myself, but what a shock I got at how much everything's gone up in price over these last few weeks since I last went, I've had to pay almost £30 more for my usual grocery's I couldn't believe it :( I'm thinking maybe it's time to change supermarkets now.

Anyway onto today's card, I thought I would have a go at a CAS card, well it's probaby if the truth be known it's probably a little over embellished to be classed as CAS but I just can't help myself when it comes to embellies lol.


Card Recipe

6x6 cream scalloped card, Core'dinations, Latice Embossalicious folder, silver mirri, organza ribbon, mulberry rosebuds, Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink, Martha Stewart doily border punch and champagne pearls.
