Spring colours?

I've finally got round to making a few cards, they were for a challenge but it's such a long time since I started them I can't remember which challenge it was.

These card were made using crafty individuals stamps and a few die cuts.



These stamps are from a chocolate baroque set. The cards were supposed to be Spring colours but somehow they didn't turn out that way. Funny how that happens! 

Think I might be getting back into this crafting lark, I've even done a few journal pages which I've posted on the journal journey's blog. Be lovely if you'd pop over and have a look.

Bye for now

Welcome Little One

Just found this photo on my phone and realised that I probably haven't posted it on here. I made it for my niece and her new baby, Amelia who was born last March and thoroughly enjoyed making it.
The box is made so that the sides create a frame and then the shelf was added to carry the toys. They are stamped from the set which has shelves with different bits on them. Wish I could remember what it's called!
The 'book ' on the lid off the box is die cut using a spellbinders die. I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out.
Thanks everyone for your kind comments, I'd forgotten what a difference they make to my life. Have a lovely Sunday

A close shave

As always I've made quite a few of my Christmas pressies and this was one I've enjoyed making immensely. The shaving soap is citrus flavour and is simply melt and pour soap with the addition of olive oil and kaolin to give it a good slip when shaving.

To finish the kit I added a shaving brush and a 100% cotton, hand knitted face cloth, knitted fairly loosely to ensure it rinses out well. The box was made out of Kanban Papers with a tag made using the robin stamps from Woodware.
'Twas lovely starting my creative Christmas making these. Men's pressies are always difficult but these did the trick for some of the many men in my life.

Hope you all had a good Christmas and wishing you all you would wish for yourself in the coming year.
Much love
