Christmas Carton!!!

Morning Peeps!

I'm in for you today and I have been having some fun making little bits to put on our table for christmas day. The Gummiapan Milk Carton die was just perfect for this!! they would be so wonderful to make a little advent calendar with too!!

I used the stunning new Christmas Season papers from Maja Designs to die cut my little carton and the little tag is from the Magnolia Doo Hickey club 20 magazine.

I even covered my mini bulldog clip with a little scrap that was left over too! I love how it all co-ordinates!! oooh, get me!!!

There is a super amount of size to tuck in some little treats like sweets or even a Lego man if you have a Lego obsessed child like me!! he he!!! It's just shy of a lip balm height so you can tuck some little cute things in there!

Right, I need to go drink lots of water for my ultrasound today...I am going to be bursting for the loo!!!

Thank you for popping in, Huge hugs Lou xxx

Good morning all!

I'm a little late with my post this morning because I have been dashing on my treadmill!! lol!! but I couldn't wait to get showered and get to my computer to post this for you all to peek at!!.

My friend Larissa let me know about these gorgeous roladex styles Studio Light dies and I couldn't resist getting some just to do some little makes for me!! Janice and Andy at Sir Stampalot got right on the case for me and ordered them in and I cannot tell you how much I love these dies!! Thank you so much, Janice and Andy xxx

I don't have my roladex yet but I can't wait to get one so I decided to get started on making some bits for myself anyways and Dashing was the perfect image to start with!! there is a lovely sparkle to the tree and its lights but as usual, a dopey Lou cant get a picture of it!!!!

I had so much fun dotting the snow around with my white gel pen too! it goes a little pink on the car but I still adore it!!

So I decided to use my Lawn Fawn square reveal wheel die set for a different purpose!! I made a little pennies gift card with a little window for the sentiment which I stamped right onto the sliding pennies bit so it could be seen through the window. I love it!!

Tiddly Inks challenge #219...Divine Dimension!

 Image- Kit.
Morning all!!

It's time for a super fun new challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog. And this month it's all about...
Divine Dimension!

so think images popped out on foam, moveable parts in your makes, shadow boxes, pop up boxes oooooh there's so much to choose from!!!! 

 (**remember...We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc 
but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image **)

I decided to go with the super sweet Kit. He is just $1 in the store and I cannot resist a little fox one little bit! I adore them!

There is just something super sweet about a fox and I just couldn't resist whipping my new die into action. Now, I have made loads of this style card before using THIS TUTORIAL from Splitcoast stampers so don't think you have to have the die. I just love how cute and small this die set is so I had to get it!!! and this is how it works...

Then it was just a case of adding some foam to pop out the elements like my little Kit circle and the puffy white clouds. I added a few cute snowflakes and of course....printed out my own funny sentiment for inside!!

in fact....Christy just drew me 2 new foxy images and they are in the shop now!! You can click on the piccy to be pinged to them!!

   From Our Family to Yours  | Digital Stamp
Aren't they just perfect?!! I LOVE them!! Right, time for a cuppa before I tackle the hoovering. Poppy is malting and it's like a black carpet every morning in my lounge!! I'm so pleased we have laminate flooring downstairs!! lol!!

Thank you for popping in, huge hugs Lou xxx

Morning all!

I'm in with a post for you today using With Love. I love how Mo's image's can be used for the beautiful rainbow of skin tones out in our amazing world. This one was for my friend's little girls to give to their friend.

Today I will mostly be pootling around doing the ironing and I might get some time to pootle out to my craft room a bit later too! I hope so, I really fancy making a bit of something if I can get the umpf! my toes have been really quite painful so a little treat of crafty time will just take the yuckiness out of my day!!!

Tailor Tilda....

Magnolia stamps Butterfly Dreams tag die 
Hello everyone!!

I had such a wonderful time pootling along with this little card and one of my favourite things from Magnolia stamps....their mini world stamps!! Oh, I just love them because you can fit so much fun into makes with the using your old and trusted Magnolia DooHickey dies. I used the Dream Tags die to pop the super sweet little Tailor Tilda on.

Let's take a closer peek at her with her little sewing machine!! awwww!!!

The card shape is made using the Magnolia DooHickeys Recipe card die. To make the little pink gingham designer paper piece. I used a sheet of my golden oldie 6x6 magnolias paper I cut a piece of it out with the die and then left it in there while I drew around the inside edge of the die with a pencil. I then cut along that pencil line and distressed the edges to get the perfect little matting piece on the card.

I also took some time to make her some little patchwork quilt pieces using the Gummiapan Hens Net die. I carefully lifted it out of my die cutting machine so the pieces stayed within the die so I could get my trusty thin black pen to draw the 'stitches' on. I love how it came out!!

And how sweet does the little Gummiapan Button Heart die look with a little thread through it as an accent on the tab part? 

Now, did you all get the Magnolia DooHickeyclub Volume 20 Magazine? ooooh, I so hope you did because it has the most beautiful little pair of scissors and a needle and thread die! they were just perfect for this make! I couldn't believe my luck when I saw them in the set!!!

I used a teeny little brad to put the scissors together and they look so sweet!!

Here is the needle in action too! I had super fun threading it!!

A repeat job of making the matting on some white card worked so nicely for the back of the card and I utilised a few more of those gorgeous little quilt pieces to dress up the corners.

Right, time for me to pootle off!! Thank you for popping in, Huge hugs Lou xxx
