Cards and Packaging for Hostess set

OK I also made 4 cards to go with the tags. I used the sweet treats cartridge again. This is such an easy cartridge to use. It is so fab and layers beautifully.

The packaging was made from one of the plastic boxes my Papertrey Ink stamps come in. I added a belly band and a stamped sentiment.

The person who received the gift was very touched.

Since the main idea is to give someone an individual gift I was very chuffed with the response she gave me.


Tags for hostess gift

I was invited to a friends house for lunch on Wednesday so I decided to craft for the first time in 2 weeks. I used my sweet treats cricut cartridge to make some cute tags.

After I took these pictures I decided to twinkle them. They looked so cute with glittered edges. Fab.

This post has all the tags I made. The next post will have the cards I made to match and also the packaging.

Final Gus Pages

Due to my being under the weather (flu) I have not been blogging properly. In fact I have to been crafting at all in the last 2 weeks. I am finally getting over the damn flu - at last!

Anyway here are the last Gussy Pics. I forgot to take another copy of June before I gave it to my friend.

I am pleased to report that she was delighted by the calendar. Phew! :)

How cute?

Pink Brooch

Latest brooch in the series. L


I have been a bad blogger recently but I am blaming my flu. I have been totally floored by it and I am not being a good patient.
There is a problem with the June Pic so I need to take it again.

January Gus Page

I finally got round to making this calendar for my best friend. She is absolutely nuts about her dog Gus. He is totally her pride and joy. He is absolutely adorable in this post.

I think she will love this calendar. Fingers crossed anyway. I have kept the design quite clean and simple.

Hope she likes it.


Balloon Brooch

I made a bunch of these last night but I am only going to show one each day. As you can see I added the brooch to the front of a card. I am loving these cause they are just so cute.
I will be doing a double post every day cause I also have a calendar to share. SO I will post one calendar page and one brooch every day. GO me lol.

Note books

I have to confess that this is a CASE from the PTI blog gallery. I forgot to take a not of who came up with the design. I will try and update the post with the name.

I changed the design slightly. I used clear embossing powder instead of white (just because I don't own white!)

I also left off the buttons because I sometimes have issues with buttons - who knows why. Today is one of those days I guess! I also added a rhinestone to the sentiment. So cute. Who can resist a bit of bling?

Not me, any way lol :)

CAn I just say I hate all this snow and ice! The temperature was -19 last night. We are going to be off again tomorrow as all schools in my area are shut again. I am getting cabin fever as a result. No amount of crafting can make me like this. And then I am thinking of how behind my classes are going to be!!!!! AAAARGGGGHHHH

Ok rant over with.
