Happy New Year 2015!!!!

OMG.....I am ready for the New Year - Gifts made and ready to be given!!!!!
LOL, first time ever!

I am sooooooo pleased with how these came out that I am keeping one for myself! That's ok isn't it!
I am also using them as my entry into this month's Jaded Blossom Challenge.

I used Jaded Blossom's Happy New Year stamp set and Treat Tag Die.

So I started with the tag

Added that to a treat bag with some treats

Than popped those into a Wine Glass that I added a saying to 

Either way I love the tag no matter how it's dressed up!

 Just to give them out to a few lucky people and get ready to have a great New Year with my family.

Whatever you do for the New Year, may you be safe and enjoy good health.

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

Kindness Lotus

I thought you might like a break from Christmas projects.

I had a play with some new stamp sets and first up I played with the new SU SAB 2015 Lotus Blossom set. 
I did also stick with Christmas colours.


Totally gorgeous 3 stage stamp.

Olaf Christmas 2014

You know that feeling when you think you have all your cards made and sent, and then you get an unexpected one!!!!!!

LOL, well I know that feeling, and as everyone knows I make cards, it's sort of expected to be given a handmade not bought one back.......so with that in mind, I was inspired by Cindy, one of the DT's over at SVG Cutting Files and the gift cards she made using the Olaf cut from the FROZEN Blog Hop that they recently had.

Anyways, I made my card and loved him so much that I made another ready to use as another card or to use as a Gift Bag Tag which I think would look lovely.



BTW........NO I have NOT seen the movie Frozen, and to be honest have no inclination to, but I do think Olaf is a cutie!

December Swap Cards

For my December swap cards, I made them as New Year Cards as I figured by the time they reach the other side of the world, it will more than likely be just after Christmas.

Any way, I got out my Jaded Blossom's Happy New Year stamp set and created these cards with my Stampin Up supplies.



I love them both and hope the recipients do too.

Work Colleague gifts 2014

Well the Christmas Parties have started!

As such, this year I decided I was going to give Handmade Gifts as well as the usual card this year.

So off to pintrest I went, and bugger me, I found a lady who actually got out her sewing machine and embroidered this saying on a roll of toilet paper!!!!

Well, I'm not that clever, but I did get out my Gift Box Board and made a box and some tags and created my own little gift.



Guess what my work colleagues are getting this year!

Our friends from the Greyhounds party loved theirs, and I'll show you the other couple of gifts I made them next time.

Greyhound Christmas 2014

It's that time of year again when a group of us who adopted ex racing greyhounds have our Christmas get together.

I always make up little gifts for Bee Jay's pal's and here is this years'.




I think they look awesome! I had some Santa Washing ribbon from a few years back that works so well with the "Get Your Santa On" stamp set.

I hope you treat your pets to some nice treats and packaging this year!

Forever & Always

I was asked to make up a card for a friend's husband - you know, lovely dovey type thing.
Any specific colours? No, How about red and white? Oh that sounds good, oh and maybe a touch of purple would be nice? Sure.

LOL, oh, and could I have it tomorrow morning?

Ok - so with that, here are the 2 cards I made - yes 2 as I always like to give a bit of choice when I get slightly vague directions.

The winner with a splash of Elegant Eggplant......(I know, it looks black right!)


however this one was my preferred card of choice......


Colour combination is Real Red, Smoky Slate and Whisper White, with the first one also having Elegant Eggplant.

Christmas Gift Tag 2014

Using my Copic's and  Julie Nutting stamps, I made this tag for my daughters Christmas gift this year.





Not too sure if it needs something else on it, and as I couldn't decide, decided to leave as is.

Merry Christmas Wreath 2014

I enjoyed my weekend off by making some Christmas items for our home this year.

Here's the gorgeous wreath I made after being inspired by Angie at Chic' n Scratch.



Super cute and sparkly too!

I used some retired Christmas papers, Ribbon and Sizzlets and couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Love it!

I posted the Mistletoe wall plaque and Make Good Cheer canvas on my Facebook Page over the weekend as I made them.

End of School Treats

My goodness, how quickly this year has gone by!!!!

Can't believe my baby boy has one week of High School left - wowers, 12 years of schooling gone in the blink of an eye!

On that note though, my baby girl is about to finish her first year of High School......4 more to go!

I thought I'd show you some treats I made up for her girlfriends - no, not cool for the boys to give gifts......


 And the winner was:


Sparkly and Bright!!!!
