After my successful baking marathon for my gorgeous god daughter’s christening, I can now sit back and relax and craft ( or in my case attempt to craft ).
It is my eldest god daughter’s wedding anniversary approaching and I had two idea’s in my head that I wanted to create. Am almost happy to say the card’s came out pretty close to my image.
I am undecided on what one to use ! The couple and Paris does have significant meaning to them both, But I have to admit I do like the cute couple looking into the sunset. I am also pleased with how the sunset finished as I am totally useless with Distress Ink blending, I have tried all sorts of paper and this was watercolour paper.
All of the dies are from slow boat and unbranded but 1 love them
Before my upcoming hectic but happy weekend is upon me, I decided to finally have a test run with the edge dies I got from slow boat from China.
These cut like a dream and cannot wait to put them to good use when I need to make a card for a special event. Hardly have to use a pokey tool as the little pieces fall right out. BUT the one edge die on top right hand photo, now that was another matter. I did struggle to begin with with this but as alot of other crafters have had same problem I feel relieved I am not doing anything wrong. Phew !
Aren’t they gorgeous ?
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 🙂
Christening Favour Boxes
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 🙂
Well Father’s Day is nearly here so had to get my thinking cap on. As my dad is a big fan of FC Barcelona and also wishes he had a VW Campervan what better way than to mix the 2 together.
The colour’s may not mean much to many of you but the top layer are FC Barcelona’s home colour’s and the bottom layer are their away colour’s plus the colour’s of Catalan.
Now my dad has a VW Campervan !
Supplies :- Clearly Besotted Stamps – Colour Chameleon

Feeling bit more pleased with myself after my disappointment with Poppy stamp and dies.
I needed a storage for my die’s but really did not want to spend mega money so I had a brain wave …yes scary thought I know but I had an old CD Storage wallet gathering dust and that is what gave me the idea.
I bought a roll of magnetic tape from Poundland and made some basic background square card templates to slot inside and Voila !!!
So there we have it a cheap affordable Die Cut storage for £2 – These CD storage can also be found in Poundshops
Supplies :- Memento DewDrops : Summer Sky, Angel Pink, Dandelion and Tangelo
Stamps are Flower Blocks – Clearly Besotted Stamps
Well next Sunday is my gorgeous godson 2nd Birthday, where has my little man gone ?
As he is dinosaur mad I really hope he likes his card. I was lucky enough to find this die set on Ebay ( don’t you just love Ebay ? I do ! )
Next weekend I will be busy making dinosaur cupcake toppers and cupcake wrappers, so if all goes well I will post my efforts, I say efforts as never done these before so wish me luck !
