Coin purses

I have been making a few (ahem!) coin purses recently. This is me finally getting around to posting them. Not that it takes me long at all. 

I have tried to keep them different. I am not going to say what products etc I use because that would take forever. But if you have any questions just leave a comment and I will get back to you. 

Thanks for looking 
Apologies for the huge post! :-)

Blog hop June 2014

I have decided to mark the first day of my school holidays by taking part in the blog hop. I whipped up a quick card. I seem only to be able to make birthday cards at the moment! I need some new sentiments I think! :) 

Anyway I kept things quite simple following the sketch on nicholes blog. I decided to add a butterfly as my embellishment in the middle and I fancied trying the vellum trend doing the rounds at the moment. 

I love the rainbow look as well so I felt this card would suit it. Hey presto we have a small circular rainbow- ish look to the card. Add a few sequins and that's the card done 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a fab day.

Make it Monday DIY notebook

This is such a cute make it Monday. I love home made gifts. They are so cute and thoughtful. They are a total pleasure to make. 

Anyway. I wanted to go really bright on this cover. So I cut various widths of cardstock and stuck it on the front of the notebook front. I then die cut (in my new big shot woo hoo) and stamped images from be happy. I decided they looked a bit plain so I attacked them with a clear wink of Stella pen. Sooo pretty. 

Inside are a bunch of mutli coloured pieces of cardstock. I wanted to keep the rainbow theme going :) 

I am pleased as punch of my notebook. It's not going anywhere apart from next to my phone. I love love love it. 

Thanks for visiting. 


Big hugs. Lesley

New toy

I broke my cuttlebug on Tuesday. So after some advice I bought a big shot. It's so cute. And I have to say it cuts beautifully and is really smooth to use! I love, love, love it. I have added a pic of it. Please ignore my messy craft room. It needs a huge clean out. 
Hugs. Lesley

Make it Monday 158

is my first ever attempt at a make it Monday project. I have decided to try and make more time for crafting. This is my first try at that. I have school holidays coming up so fingers crossed I can get lots of crafty time in then.

For the card I used gelato which were a gift and had yet to be tried until tonight. I saw a card from Michelle short at the Card Grotto which showed a card she had made using an a2 curved edge die. Since I didn't have that die I made my own version of an edge card.

Anyway thank you for visiting my wee blog.

Pti on Ebay

Hi folks. Just a wee heads up. I have decided to do a de stash as my craft room is literally bursting at the seams. So I have decided to thin out my pti goodies. I have chosen sets that I don't really use anymore.

So if anyone is interested in a previously loved set head on over to ebay and ou will find some fab goodies.

Big hugs.
