Interchangeable Desk Calendar Using NEW 2018 SU Products!!

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have not had to much Snow! We are supposed to be getting some today. I hope we don't lol.

My project for today is a Desk Calendar but i think its a bit different!! I thought it would be a fun idea to make it interchangeable! For my Calendar i made a feature for Valentines, Easter, Mothers Day & a Birthday. Of course you can make a feature for whatever you like! I hope you like my project and agree with me that its rather fun.




This Calendar is so easy to make and the feature months change over using Velcro dots. I really enjoyed making this and i know you will too!

As stated in the title of this post i used mostly new products that will be available to purchase from 3rd January 2018. There really is so many gorgeous new products and i can not wait to get making with them! I have so many favorites already.

Please find the dimensions below and also the link to my YouTube tutorial. As i used new products i can not list them until 3rd January.

DIMENSIONS

CARD FOR THE CALENDAR MEASURES 6" X 11 3/4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 4 1/2",  9",  10" & 11"

FOIL MATS MEASURE 1 7/8" X 4 7/8"

Craft Room Tips & Tricks-You NEED This in Your Craft Room!!!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog & i hope you are all enjoying the festive period! I am really enjoying having some time off from my part time job. I have spent lots of time crafting and coming up with some lovely projects for 2018!

Today i don't have a tutorial for you but i do have a few great tips. I just want to start off by saying that i got this tip from a lady called Hannah and she is Hancrafted cards. I have put the link to Hannah's video on my Youtube tutorial.

So the fabulous tip is surgical spirit!! or rubbing alcohol. You can pick this up from chemists and its very inexpensive. This stuff is amazing for sticking your clear mount stamps to your blocks and they actually stay stuck!! It is also great for removing sticky adhesive from your scissors and framelits.



Please watch my Youtube tutorial as i demonstrate all of the above and you can see for yourself how great this stuff really is!!

Thank you!

Love

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog!
I hope you are all ready for Christmas!! The last week has been manic for me! I will be glad to have a rest over Christmas. I am also really looking forward to playing with my new products and planning Sale-A-bration! So exciting.

I think this will be my last project, well before Christmas anyway. I will be back next week with some projects using the new Spring/Summer items. I may have a short video on Christmas Eve.

Today i have a really cute table favour. I made this to hold 1 Lindor chocolate but you might fit any small chocolate in really. Its very simple to make and you only need a small amount of DSP. I hope you like it.




I just think that these are so cute but also quite elegant looking. They would look lovely on the Christmas table.

All the products i used are listed below as well as the link for my YouTube Tutorial.
Thank you for stopping by and i will be back on Sunday with a final Video and to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Gorgeous reinforced Large Gift Bag

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog & another tutorial. With Christmas only being a few days away, i will be making the last few projects of 2017 all festive! If you are anything like me you will always run out of wrapping paper or gift bags. Hopefully these last few projects will help fix that situation.

I have a very beautiful & elegant looking gift bag today which i love. This bag is also very large & super strong. I would think nothing of it if i saw this bag in an expensive shop etc. It looks very professional & i am sure you will agree.




I used the bundle of love designer paper for these bags. I think it is perfect as it also has the same pattern on the reverse but in a different colour. You will need 2 sheets of 12 x 12" to make the bag but i think its worth it. Of course you could make your bag smaller if you wish.

You could make this bag for so many different occasions. If you use this designer paper i think they would be perfect for Weddings & Christenings.

Please find the link to my YouTube video below & also a list of all the products i used.

DIMENSIONS

2 X  12 X 12"

SCORE BOTH PIECES THE SAME @ 3" & 11 1/2"

SCORE THE OTHER SIDE @ 3" & 10 1/2"  ( THIS SIDE WILL BE THE TOP & BOTTOM OF YOUR BAG)

CARD TO REINFORCE THE BOTTOM 8 3/8" x 2 7/8" 


Thank you

Love
