A mystery has been solved

Now those of you who keenly watch my blog will know about cardgate! Well for those who don't I lost the cards I had painstakingly made for my dad to send out. I searched everywhere and could not find them. I asked my dad and he didn't have them.

Well while I was at the class earlier today my dad phoned to let me know that ........ gasp .......

He has found said cards in his house!!! after making me panic for such a long time he has bothered to look! Grrrrrrr. Anyway all is well and they are safe and sound. BUT dad did say he wanted another 20 aaarggghhh lol.


Cute candy canes

I got the idea for these from Youtube. I think they just make the candy canes so cute. Instead of being a humble candy cane they look good enough to give as a small gift. In my opinion anyway. If you listen carefully you can hear all my friends groaning at the thought lol.


First ever Scor-Pal class

I went to Fee's fab shop again today. I was there for a Scor-Pal class. I have not really been interested in a Scor-Pal before now but I bought one after the class. Boy am I loving it. It scores paper beautifully and is such a crisp finish. FABBY!!

I made this gorgeous box at the class and after Fee showed me how to make the pizza box. I had an absolute ball at the class.

There were what another friend of mine would call Vampires there (people who suck away all your energy - just in case you couldn't guess lol). Fee was soooooo patient with them. Apart from the vamps I got to hang out with Fee, Izzy and Val after the class. I think these three women are just fab and I always leave with a huge smile on my face and loads of inspiration running round my head.

Cute Little Notebooks

I was at a craft fair at a primary school earlier tonight. I sold out of my Hello Kitty bookmarks. Will need to make more of them.

While I was there I made these cute little notebooks.

I am loving my new SU stamp set.

I think the hall of the school is now covered in glitter lol.


Project Tuesday Post it Note holder

I made this on Tuesday but have not had the chance to actually do anything with it yet. I have kept it very simple. I may add an image but I will do that when I have more time! Whenever that will be lol.

New Design for Dad's Cards

I have finally come up with a new design for my dad's Christmas cards after cardgate when I lost them - DOH!

I was playing about with a design for my ATC card at Passion for Papertrey. I liked it so I modified it slightly to come up with dad's card. I got the paper and stamp at Fee's shop on Sunday. I was dropping off her PTI order.

Project Tuesday Box

This is my third box. The other two were a disaster area. I used my new punch I got with my PTI my friend picked up from the States while she was there. It is made with PTI cardstock and matching paper.

Inside I have wrapped Hershey's miniatures in SU paper.

I could not fit in a tab and when I tried them with the other boxes they looked really messy. Any suggestions are welcome. So instead I tied some Su linen thread.

Snowman Poop

I got this idea from another blog but I can't remember which one. I apologise to whoever gave me the inspiration cause I have forgotten.

This is just mini marshmallows with a poem on the front.

Snowman Soup

I made this cute Snowman Soup after seeing it on a fab blog - Chic-n-Scratch. This is a great project and is super easy to make. I am going to take these to a craft fair on Saturday. I think they have the novelty factor and should do well.Fingers crossed.
Contents: Hot chocolate sachet, 10 mini marshmallows, 2 mini candy canes.

Cute little Box

I used my cricut again to cut this cute little bag out. I love my cricut. I am coveting one of the new pink cricut ones. Anyone who wins the lottery and is feeling generous can send one my way lol. Only kidding I will save my pennies like everyone else out there.

I used one of the scallops I made for the paperclips. I think it looks so cute on front of the box. I have left it quite plain apart from that.

Cookie Monster Bookmarks

This is another bookmark I made. I have actually made more than 1 but I thought seeing one would be enough lol.

I used my cricut to cut the face. I think it is just so cute. I need to make some more characters and I will post them as soon as I get the chance to make them.
Can't wait to hear what you think!

Tart and tangy Bookmarks

I made these after seeing great inspiration from Emma and Mandy. I saw these done on Youtube ages ago but never attempted them. I didn't think I had a big enough paperclip. But after seeing these ladies blogs I gave them a try and I am so impressed.

I made these using the Tart and tangy stamp set from Stampin Up. Love this set!

The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. I cut the circles and scallops using my cricut.

I hope to take them to a craft fayre on Saturday.

I would love to hear what you think!

I don't believe it !

I posted Christmas cards I made for my Dad in Sept. I only had 10 more to make for him. Well I have put the cards somewhere and I cannot find them now. I have looked everywhere. I now have to rethink cards for him and come up with new designs aaaarrrrrggggghhhh.

I am so annoyed with myself.

If anyone has any ideas for quick and easy Christmas cards I would welcome any suggestions. I am about tearing my hair out here.

Hope full of loads of ideas

hugs to all

Easel Card

I saw this card made on Mandy's blog and I thought I would give it a try. It was actually very easy to do. Loving the result. So cute. I love this jolly Santa from Sugar Nellie.

Hope you enjoy your day.

Passion for Papertrey Ho Ho Ho Challenge

I finally got myself sorted out and made this challenge. I have been busy making Christmas cards. I changed the design yet again. I will post them tomorrow after work.

I made this using Lauren Meaders design - Tote. It is the small size but so cute. I used the Tree Trimming Stamp from PTI. It looks so cute. I added a splash of red with the ribbon which I feel is quite daring for me. I don't usually go mad with colours but I felt I needed something extra with this project.
Anyway I need to go and get some beauty sleep.

Have a fab Monday

Project tuesday Triangle Box

I think these boxes are so cute. They look so professional and difficult to achieve but are actually very easy to do. I made mine using some fab stampin up paper. I love the colours. So Christmas's.

I have kept the design quite simple. I have used bits and bobs from my stash.

Can't wait to hear what you think.
