Christmas Crafting

Happy Tuesday and Happy Halloween
No ghosts or witchies from me today
but some more Christmas Crafting
This time I have made some Apron Boxes
These were cut on my portrait 
Perfect for adding some little gifts like Ginger Bread men!
We even brought one from the farm shop to try for size

The lovely Ribbons I have used are from 
Crafty Ribbons and are from the Christmas Cupcake Selection
Christmas Cupcake ~ Yummy Red
Christmas Cupcake ~ Yummy Lime Juice
Christmas Cupcake ~ Yummy Turquiose
For the handles I used
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas  Red
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas  Lime Juice
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Turquiose
For the tops of the pockets I used some beautiful lace that you can find here.
I have used a lovely image from Tiddly Inks called Bake Me Some Love
I coloured her three different colours to match my ribbons she is so cute and fitted onto my aprons perfectly. I coloured up using Graph'It Markers and paper pierced each of her hats.

Happy Halloween

What another fun weekend we have had
Our lovely Granddaughter Felicity came to stay
We had a spooky visit to the farm on Friday where there was a Halloween experience
It was great everything from Pumkin carving to a spooky tractor ride where we got squirted with water by skeletons, our driver was hit over the head by a grave digger and he continued to drive the tractor (not very well I might add)
Felicity goes home tommorow so alas will not be with us for Halloween but that did not stop her crafting
this little lot took her hours and hours
Soooo Happy Halloween to you all
Love from Grandma & Felicity

Stampin' Unicorn strikes again

Hi Everyone and Happy Monday to you all
It may be grey and rainy outside but in my little blog
It's full of light , colour and magical things.
You may even want to don your sunnies!

I have used Distress Oxides on the background , I just love the ease of use and the colours ~ splashed on some water to give a really magical feel
I then grabbed my stamps and so it began
I used various stamps from the following collections
I love how they all match together
I coloured the stamps using Graph'It Markers, digging out all my brights
Each of the butterflies has been layered to give some depth
And I just added some magical clouds to finish

Stampin' Unicorn Crafting

SSSShhhhh want to know a sparkly secret??
I am sooooooooo very happy to have been asked to join the brand new 
Stampin' Unicorn Crafting DT
So my new name for this DT is....
Flutterby Sparkle Scatty
We all have our own unicorn names ~ How fun is that
For someone up until about 12 months ago who did not stamp ~ I am thrilled to bits
For my first project
I have used the scrummy stamp
it's so beautiful I just know this will be well used!
I also added one of the Mushrooms from the Autumn Harvest Stamp Set
I have used Polychromo Pencils to colour
with some glitter on the windows ~ It just screamed at me for glitter
the only problem being my camera has a phobia against it and will not take decent photos for any amount of bribery!!
 The Sentiment stamps can be found on 
I have used Distress Oxides for the background
and the Die I have used is the Toadstool Die from Polkadoodles

Fairy Sunny Day

Happy Tuesday to you all
here to share with you a card and tag that I have made
Using the soooo cute image from Tiddly Inks 
(both of the sentiments shown on card and tag came with her, what a bonus!)
Such a sweetie, I totally am in love with these images
I coloured up using Graph'It Markers, I had planned to use a lot of yellow but as soon as I went to colour Turquoise took the lead but I think she suits it rather well

I used a flower edge die that I have had for years, cut it twice and cut some single flowers for the tag and coloured the little centers so they matched.
I also used a flower die for the card again colouring the center.
Both images were cut twice to allow me to cut out the larger flower seperatly for the card and tag , I then glittered the edges and adhered using Pinflair glue so they popped of the page.
I used Nuvo drops ~ Aquatic Mist on her wings.

I finished of using some lush ribbons from Crafty Ribbons
Organza Swiss Dots ~ You really would not belive how much I use this
3mm Satin from a Satin pack ~ excellent value and another that is well used

Love to Create Challenge - GDT

Happy Sunday to you all today I have the honour of being a GDT for the
The Challenge is always anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes
pop across they have some wonderful prizes you could win
As it's almost Halloween
that became my project focus

I cut out three tag shapes onto watercolour card and printed off three of the lovely Oddella's that you can find in the Polkadoodles store Here
I coloured up the Oddella's using Polychromo Pencils in shades of grey and red
I used Distress Oxides on the tags mainly Iced Spruce with some splashes of Black soot.
Next came the stamps  I used Absolute Vintage Clear stamp set - stamping Cogs and clocks randomly. I also used a few other stamps for the circles and lines.
I also had a play with a few masks.
Added a little red paint to the top of each one and let it run down the tag.
I lastly added a few different size sequins and  a sentiment to each one
The sentiments have a brush of fired brick distress ink and finished off with a little doodle

Summer Memories

Happy Tuesday
I am here today to share with you a mini photo album

Our Granddaughter spent a lot of her summer holidays with us and we made lots and lots of fun memories.
Whilst she was here a few weeks back I had just finished my second album 
Felicity absolutly fell in love with it so I decided to make her one of our time together this Summer, yes we had lots of rain but we donned our fashion wellies and smiled through it.
The papers I have used throughout are from the lovely collection
They were absolutly perfect for my project
The same as last time I made a little box cover for my album
That pretty butterfly was from the Dollie collection, the little frame was a Hobbycraft buy , quite cute ,I think there was about 8 in a pack
I was so pleased how vibrant it all looked.
The cover of my album, that flowery paper, I really had forgotten how good this collection was.
I used another of the butterflies and a couple of lanterns just to finish 
This day we spent at our local carnival
Sea Life center was a day Felicity spent with her Mummy, they popped to Southampton for a few days.
The beautiful Nautical Ocean Embellies Oh my word I love these you can find them here they really the cutest ever!
The mixed vintage buttons can be found here
This Cherry Blossom die makes the perfect seaweed

A day at the beach with Mum
I have used some elements here from Starfish and Sandcastles Collection
Just look at that fun crab!
I have also used stamps from the collection
The Panda is from Dollie collection he just sort of sits perfectly in the corner of my page
For Mr Giraffe I have attached a magnet to the bottom of the page so he keeps the photo's in place
Amos Rock Hunting!! Now this was really something else and we had hours of fun and walking with this one (and to this day it still carries on)
Around our town and local areas some painted rocks were hidden. The idea is that you search for these rocks , take a photo and pop it on the Facebook page and then either re hide the rock or make one of your own and hide that - This really has been so much fun , seeking out new walks and parks .
A little bit of sunshine, a paddling pool , an ice lolly and a huge smile
What more could one ask for?
Ton's of fun at the Safari Park
This is a huge farm not far from where we live , We now have an annual membership as it's such a great place to visit ~ If you see the moving photo's below and wonder ...... Milkshake is the name of the Pony that Felicity rides.
The frame die is from Polkadoodles I just cut in half
Totally love this page ~ All about Family and Pets
Unconditional Love

Belle Papillon Mini Album

Happy Monday ~ What a busy weekend I have had , the Granddaughter came to stay and as ever we cram as much fun in as we possibly can.

Anyway after making my first mini album last month , I decided on another
This time being more adventurous with pockets and adding lots more detail
and even its own little box
I mainly used Belle Papillon to decorate
It is so beautiful, romantic with lots of nostalga
I thought carefully about each page but once I knew what I wanted with this collection it was very easy
You can find Belle Papillon here
I firstly decorated the box adding some lush lace a tag, some wooden keys that I painted up using slightly sparkly paints I love them and the lovely sentiment
*Create the greatest memories*

I have also used lots of Polkadoodles dies in making this
and also Paper pads
Bella Fleur & Belle Papillon
Both can be found here (beautiful papers)

My Album has lots of pages and as my phone is ancient and no good for videos 
I have put together some moving pictures of the pages and there elements

A close up of the tags I made using Distress Oxides
and using the stamp sets
