EASY & Gorgeous Shabby Chic Flowers!



Hi Everyone,

Thank you for popping by my blog today! I have a very easy flower tutorial for you and you only need a few supplies to make them. I also recommend leaving them to dry overnight as you don't want to risk tearing them. In the picture above i used 2 Ink colours. Lovely Lipstick & Pool Party. I love the way they turned out & i will be definitely making a whole load more!!


They look so pretty & sparkly. To get the sparkle i used my homemade glimmer spray (of course!) i am addicted to using that stuff, i love it. I will link the tutorial below for the spray in case you have not seen it before.
Homemade Glimmer Spray Tutorial

To make these flowers you will need either a flower punch or some flower dies. If you have the Stampin Up Pansy punch that will do, if not use something similar. I used some flower dies that i bought online.
I cut them out from whisper white card stock. Using some Ink & a finger dauber, i inked the middles of the flowers. I used a brad to attach about 5 flowers together. Using some water in a spray bottle i soaked the flowers and then pulled up the petals to shape. Leave to dry overnight then remove the brad and glue together.
Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.

I hope you will give them a try, they are so easy but give beautiful results.

Thank you

Healing Hugs Cards



Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog & thank you for stopping by!
Today i have 3 gorgeous cards for you that i created using the healing Hugs stamp set from Stampin Up!. This stamp set is beautiful & it is so easy to create beautiful looking cards in know time at all. I made 2 eclipse cards using a non branded 'Thanks' die. You can use any dies that you have to create the same effect.


The card in the above picture was made using the gorgeous Tufted embossing folder, again from Stampin Up!. I stamped the flower in Fresh Fig Ink & the die cut word 'Love' is from Sunshine wishes die set. I cut this out 3 times with card & then a fourth time with some fresh Fig card. This gave the sentiment a very thick & heavy feel.

I hope you like my cards and also agree with me that the Healing hugs stamp set is just simply beautiful!! I hope you will give them a try & if you do not have the stamp set you can order it from my 24/7 online shop. If you click on the shop online now tab at the top of this blog you can purchase it there.

Please remember to use my Hostess code if your order is less than £150. This will allow me to send you some lovely Stampin up! goodies when i close the code down at the end of every month. The current code is located in the top right hand side of this blog.

Thank you & bye for now.

#1 Craft Fair/Embellishment Ideas



Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog! As promised, here is the first of my new series! I will be focusing on Craft Fair ideas and handmade embellishments. The Craft Fair season will soon be upon us and i thought i would provide some inspiration for you :-) They will be a new tutorial out every Monday so i really hope you enjoy it.

To kick the series off i decided to make these adorable Mason jar embellishments. I love how they turned out and they are so easy to make and great fun. I used the Jar of love bundle from Stampin up! to make my embellishments. I made 2 larger Jars and 2 smaller jars for each package.


Once i had made my Jars and attached them to the Paper Clips i stuck them down onto some designer paper. It was placed into a cello bag and i stapled a topper onto the top of the bag. The yellow one in the picture above was decorated with some Crepe paper. I just folded it onto pleats and stapled it to the bag.

It was so easy to create these gorgeous embellishments and i think they look very professional. I really hope you will have a go at making these yourself. They would also make great gifts for your crafty friends and also Teachers etc.

I have listed the products i used at the end of this post and also the link yo my YouTube Tutorial.

Until next time....

Bye for now

Make Your Own Shimmer Spray!!



Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for visiting today!
I really think you will like today's project, i LOVE it and its so easy to make, all you need is a few supplies which you may already have.

The few ingredients make the most gorgeous shimmer spray, its very much the same as Wink of Stella but in a spray. It will make all of your projects look beautiful and shimmery!

INGREDIENTS:

SURGICAL SPIRIT OR RUBBING ALCOHOL
HAIRSPRAY
SHIMMER EYESHADOW

Basically you just pop all the ingredients into a spray bottle and shake up! Thats it, so easy and it really works. I used Barry M dazzle dust but i am sure any shimmery eye shadows will work. A little goes a long way so only use small amounts of the Eye shadow.

I hope you will give this a try and i am sure you will be blown away with the end result.

You can also check out my tutorial which i have listed below.

Bye for now
