Christmas Cards

So sorry for delay in posting, I have been very busy with upcoming Christening.

I was asked to make 60 favour boxes which took me a weekend to complete. I then also decided to make a start on Christmas Cards using dies from slow boat from China. Have to say I am very impressed with how these came out.

Here are my makes from couple weekends. Hope you like them

Next weekend I will be very busy making 3 Cupcake Bouquets, Macarons and 2 Tiered Cupcakes for my soon to be god daughter 🙂

A Little Update

Sorry for lack of blog posts recently, I have been so busy with work, family and also prepping for an upcoming Christening.

As I mentioned previously my happy mail has almost arrived and now slowly drifting off as not waiting for many to arrive. Have to say I am so impressed with what I have so far and no doubt be ordering more in future.

As I had a rare weekend off, I finally got to test some of the dies and no doubt many of you will be familiar with the make of these. I did a trial run of Christmas Cards and also made a trial attempt at the ” favour” boxes as may need to make 60 of these for upcoming Christening.

Anyway here they are. Hope you like 🙂

Macarons

I have an upcoming christening and was asked to make cupcake bouquets and 2 Tier Cupcakes. That’s not a problem for me ( not blowing own trumpet by any means ) but then I opened my mouth and said ” how about some Macarons ? ” ! STUPID of me as never made these before so why did I say this ? !

Anyway after googling numerous recipes – why are 2 recipes never the same ???

I had a go mid week which was a complete failure and not to be beaten thought have another go after viewing a recipe and tutorial on YouTube.

And Ta-dah ! I am so pleased with these for my 2nd attempt. Only thing is add more colouring and not to use a silicone Macaron sheet, but that’s just me as I found the macarons stuck so will stick to grease proof paper in future.

I used double cream purely for quickness as these were only a trial run but will add vanilla buttercream in future.

Mint, Silver and Pink Christening Card

Just completed another Christening Card for my soon to be gorgeous goddaughter.

I was having a “spring clean ” and found some card, envelopes and pearl paper ! I had an image in mind as alot of you know me, they do not always materialise. But having said this I am so glad this card came out lovely.

Hopefully you can view this as a fellow blogger has informed me my link does not work. I have not deleted this blog so am baffled as to what has happened. If anyone has any tips please let me know – Thankyou

Fairy Christening

Well finally I am able to get to crafting after manic month. To be honest I have really missed doing this.

So, I have a Christening very soon so I decided to make a non traditional Christening card for the little girl.

I found a great site that allows you download blueprints / sketches for any card ideas which is fab as I often get stuck at deciding a layout. Saying that, the design I wanted to follow did not end up at final result but am pretty sure the little girl and her parents will like the card.

I know the card if missing a stamped sentiment but I simply do not have either a Christening or On Your Special Day stamp ! – Ebay here I come

Cupcake Bouquet

I have been challenged to make this Cupcake Bouquet

It looks easy, well making the cupcakes is for me BUT however whether I can get the cakes on stay on the polystyrene ball is another matter !

And just to top it off my God Daughter kindly said ” If this comes out fine you will be making lots for christening ” ! Funny how I did not laugh at her comment lol.

Anyway I think this makes a wonderful … wonderful ?! since when do I use that word ! But yes it makes a wonderful Birthday, Mother’s Day, Christening etc floral / cake display and present.

If mine is successful I will post a photo as making one for Mother’s Day

Go on give it a go !
