Good afternoon all...hope all enjoying your sundays.
We have had a lovely day, lovely roast dinner and got to meet our new niece in a Skype call...she is gorgeous!!
Also had a little time to do a bit of crafting and made this little baby bag...adapted from the evening bag template that was demo'd at our last all day training in jan and used the matching papers to the card that made for them yesterday :-)

Stamped the word baby and glittered it but bit difficult to see as photo not that good sorry...but looks lovely!

Very girly and contains some litlle socks and vests ready for when we get to meet baby Eleanor in person at beginning of April...she lives in London so dont get to see them as often as we'd like unless travel for hours for either them or us!!
Thats all for now
see you next time, take care

hiya what a hectic week its been...busy busy busy!!
I had my first official workshop today too...only 4 people but its a start at least and got orders so even better!!
Silly me though only thought to take photos of the pizza box and cards we made after all my ladies had left...note to self for next time!!!
Well i have had more orders for notebooks and as i love this little owl from the punch bunch collection he had to take pride of place on one of them :0)

Used old olive and pear pizazz and blinged his eyes upp and he looks great!

Did a 'girly' one as requested with pinks and purples and although not all SU products the rich razzleberry and nursery suite papers look great with a Pink Petticoat image that i also adore!!

Boho blossoms used to add that special something and ribbons tied around the spine, bling and away we go!!

Thats all from me for now am going to chillax for a while

take care

Good evening hope all having a good Monday!?
Mine a little more hectic than usual but still keeps me on my toes eh.
I made this whilst just having a play about with my new stamps and am thrilled with the results even if do say myself.
Combo of basic black, sahara sand, crumb cake and real red with a bit of bling to set off the gorgeous Bliss set ( free if you spend £45 before 28th feb)

I made myself a holder for my business postcards yesterday as spent most of the day crafting...just how i like it even with a little help from my little boy!!

Close up of my first attempt at a coil flower...looks fab and really sets off the papers from nursery suite.

Wasn't too sure about this card when finished but its slowly growing on me and am slowly filling up my display board ( pic of that later in the week ) and includes many of the gorgeous swaps from fellow SU sisters!

Anyway will sign off for today...going to relax before bedtime :-)

Bye for now

Hi all well my crafty day did not go according to the plan but what can you do...spent it crafting anyway!!
have lots of orders for these little gift bags for various events so thought id get a move on with them.

These are for my friend as little Easter gifts with surprises inside and am loving my designer buttons at the moment too, added little pearls to make them even more special :0)

Think i made one in every colour to hand but am prepared for anything now lol!!

Am going to have to treat myself to more SU ribbons though...roll on payday!!

I also had a little awkward space to fill on my display board so made a little bookmark to fit in it!

I love books as much as crafting and dont get to do as much as id like but will certainly be making myself one of these for the future books

Well thats it for me for today..take care

I just cant stop making these lovely mini pizza boxes and whilst my son had his nap today i got some more made

This is a mini mini pizza box at only 3 inches but sooo cute...contains malteasters bag for my friend who has an op on thursday :)

Hiya all! despite not feeling well at all i just could not tear myself away from my lovely starter kit today and have been planning allsorts for my first workshop :0)

This is a lovely mini pizza box containing 4 lovely little cards that had a lot of fun making...hope you like them!

just a quickie to show you how it opens...although obvious to most not always to others!

I love my Stamp write markers...and only have 2 at present...give me time lol

The box and cards are decorated using the Just Believe and I heart hearts sets, marina mist marker along with colour co-ordinating designer papers

i also love my eyelet border punch...soo cute

Should of warned that this post has alot of pictures and although do try they arent the best quality...trying to improve on those too, i have so much to do on my 'improvement list'

I made this flower with 4 hearts cut out and circle punch in the middle
very effective even if i do say so myself!

Simple but effective...show your friends you appreciate them at any time of the year :0)

Well thats all for me for now...must go feed the family

Take care Karyn xx
