Last weekend my friend Jane and I did a stall at The Handmade Expo. There is an official photographer that comes round and takes photo's of the items that you have for sale. The below photo is of the bags that I have made. Soooooo excited.

Christmas Gift Bags


I recently made some Christmas bags. On two of the bags I have used the bow from My Favourite Things, it is the Die-namics Beautiful Bows. There is a small and a large one, this is the large one. Both are cut out of gold card.

The bag at the top is using Kaisercraft paper and the tree is cut from the Teresa Collins 25th December Cartridge. They are basically the same design, I just cut the bottom off the diecut tree to match.

The papers are just ones I have had In my stash. I look through them every now and again to remind myself of what I have. Although we can never have too many sheets of paper because we never know when we are going to use them. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Thanks for looking.

Tie Onsie

Hi again!

I had bought some plain white baby onesie's and wanted to dress them up on using some vinyl I had in my stash. The little onesie you see below is for one of the hairdressers I go to. I wanted to do a little something for the little boy she is having so I came up with the below idea. I used the Brooklyn Cricut Cartridge to cut the tie out.
I think it looks cute. I will start to do a few more as I have friends that will be having babies next year.
Thanks for looking.

Christmas Treat Boxes


Time has flown so quickly hasn't it?  3 more days till Christmas!!

The boxes below are cut using the Tags, Bags & Boxes 2 Cricut Cartridge. I made them for the Hairdressers that I go to. I cut them at various sizes depending on the size of card I used. I then stamped snowflakes and patterns on them. I filled them with Quality Street sweets and put a sparkly Lip balm in the Large Milk Carton at the back.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stag Glass Vase


For the craft stall I also decorated the below glass vase with a stag. I cut him out using vinyl and the image from the Teresa Collins December 25th Cricut Cartridge. I cut one image out and then reversed the other image and matched them up so when you look through the vase it just looks like one image. I also added a couple of candles and wrapped them in tissue paper tied with twine.

Thanks for looking.

Craft Fair Photo's


Last month my friend and I shared a stall at a local craft expo.  We had a good day and below are a few photo's of my wares that I had for sale.

The top picture is tea lights in a handmade box. I added Washi tape around the tea light outside of the tea lights to jazz them up! The next picture is a bottle gift tag. I added a die cut stag head to it and for a bit of fun added a "My Deer" stamp to the bottom of it. Next are more bottle gift tags, then lip balm holders complete with a lip balm. I did two sizes of pegs. The small ones and the large ones. The baking for these I made from Kraft cardstock and used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set from Stampin Up to make the background.
Thanks for looking.

Baby Shower Card


A friend of mine is expecting her first baby and the scan shows it is going to be a little girl. Today she had her baby shower and I made her the card below.  The stamps are from Stampin Up - Baby bundle and the patterned paper is from Die cuts with a View - Nanna's Nursery.

I also stamped the onesie and the duck from the stamp set on the inside of the card but unfortunately it didn't show up well on the photo.
Jemma knew the card was from me as soon as she pulled it out of the gift bag, which I also decorated but forgot to take a photo of!!
