As its Wednesday we are also combining today's inspiration with the Dazzling Diva Challenge #45, Gift Bags And Tags...


I made a cute little gift box.....

 
I just adore the font of the words on Avery Elle 'Needle Little Love'. There are so many gorgeous sentiments in this set and as you can see you only need one of them to make a little gift extra special.


To create this look I have die-cut a tag out of the Pucker Me Pink Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal and heat embossed the 'daughter' sentiment and a couple of hearts from the Needle Little Love set in white onto it. Add a little twine and it's prefect to add to any gift for your little girl.

CoffeeLoversBloghopBadge

So did you know that it's National Coffee Day today? To celebrate Cuts, Crops and Creativity is having a Coffee Lovers Blog Hop..... if your anything like me coffee is more of a need than a love so I so had to create a card to take part.


I have used three sets from the fabulous new release from Lawn Fawn- Love You A Latte, Argyle Backdrops and the frame from Sweater Weather.

I would really love to know what you think of these cute little treat cups! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog :) If your interested I'm also on Facebook and I share sneek peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram

Have a great coffee filled day!

Sweet Treat Cups

Hello there! Monday again..... hehe. I have something that may brighten your day if just a little. My little ones don't always get sweets but I though as a change it would be cute to create these treat cups and add some sweets to them to act as a 'Yay! We got through Monday!' treat.

I thought that this gorgeous little cacti from 'Stuck On This' and the 'Can't Touch This' sentiment would be so fun .... with a little added handwritten sentiment by me ;)


I'm really hoping that these go down well with Archie and Tills ... but with the cuteness factor and added chocolate how could they not?!?!?

Creating A Superhero Polaroid Frame Card- Video

Happy Saturday! Yay soooo happy to have a bit of a lay-in this morning while the little's watched Thomas The Tank in bed. They get to watch TV in bed in the mornings on a weekend and think it's like a reward for them..... only it's a reward for me and Mr Evans as we get another 45 mins to doze..... lovely.

So I have another video to share today ... I know right I'm really throwing these at you ;) I'll be taking you step-by-step on how I created this card.....


Hope you enjoy the video.......

 To watch on YouTube please click HERE

I really love love love how this turns out... and so did my little boy as he has already claimed this card as his own. Do any of the little people in your life claim cards before you can actually give them to anyone? I don't believe that it is just my lil monsters?!?!?

Also how cool is the 'seriously' with die-cut Glimmering Gold Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal?!?!

I would really love to know what you think of the card and video! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog :) If your interested I'm also on Facebook and I share sneek peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram

 Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon.

Subtle Florals

Hello! Ooooppss sorry I'll try to whisper as my kids are sleeping in the next room ;) I know it's unlike me to blog in the evening but the other half is watching (screaming at) the football. 

So I have decided to creep up stairs and share with you a card I made for the challenge over at Altenew. They have a really sweet photo for inspiration, I took the colours for my card.


I am so in love with the Painted Flowers stamps... they are just unbelievably classic and elegant and work so well stamped and heat embossed on vellum.

Well in sounds like the football is drawing to a close so I may be able to sneak back down stairs again :)

I'd love to know what you thing of this slightly contemporary wedding card!

Have a great night.
