Elf on the shelf day 2

This morning the grandchildren and 1 woke up to this!!!!
I'm sure our sweet elves were partying when they should have been to see Santa. LOL

They did leave a little gift for the grandchildren though. Chocolate coins for each one.
I'm thinking they were in a very cheeky mood last night.....don't you?

Until next time happy crafting.

Elf on the shelf day 1

It's December and that means Christmas is just around the corner.
My elves returned today and had a great time letting me and my grandchildren know that they are watching and reporting back to Santa.
Elf 1 day 1

We found one sitting on the roof of my doll house.

Elf 2 day 1
And we found one hanging off one of my letters that I have hanging on my wall.
They also bought with them a candy cane for each of the grandchildren.

Do you have an elf on the shelf? And do they do silly things? Please let me know in the comments with your blog link as I would love to see what they are up to :)

Until next time happy crafting xx

Sweet Birthday Card

On Saturday the 7th of October my Granddaughter turned 2.
Above is the card I created for her.
Below is a version of the card without the number in the balloon.

I used the CTMH Sweet Baby stamp set and thincuts for this card.
I also used the Have a sweet birthday sentiment from CTMH's Sweet Birthday stamp set(B1532).

Sweet Baby stamp set (D1726) can be purchased without the thincuts if you enjoy fussy cutting or don't have a die cutting machine. Sweet Birthday can be purchased with the Thincuts (Z3374)

I added some White and gold twine that I had in stock as well as the number 2 that came from some rubbons I have in my stash that needs to be used up :)

Until next time Happy Crafting to you all xx

Christmas Cards started.

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I wanted to share my 1st Christmas cards for 2017 with you. 
My cards today were inspired by a lady that posted on a facebook group a few months ago (I have searched but can't find the original post right now :( ). The group is for Australian and New Zealand residents called Card-making Australia and New Zealand.

Reindeer Eyes Christmas Card 1
One of these will be part of my Christmas Buffet on the 15th of October.

I will be adding how I made these cards to the bottom of my blog posts for you all. As much as I would love to see you at one of my classes I know it isn't possible for everyone :)

Reindeer eyes Christmas card 2
I am hoping to add a new Christmas themed project at least once a week over the next 12 weeks. But you never know I may add more or I may add less it just depends on how I am traveling and how much I am inspired to create over the next few weeks.


Card Recipe 
Black textured cardstock
Small Pearls (card 1)
Medium Pearls (card 2)
Black Sharpie pen for eyes
Red Sharpie pen for nose
House die was bought on Wish.
Cuttlebug for die cutting
Rose Gold metallic paper from K-mart

Putting the cards together
I die cut 2 of the house dies from wish 1st.
I added black dots using a black sharpie pen on 14 medium and 14 small pearls.
1 coloured 2 medium pearls with a red Sharpie pen.
I cut 2 front panels for my cards from the Black textured cardstock.
I adhered all my items to the black card front using Liquid Glass from CTMH.


I hope you enjoy todays card. Please leave me a comment if you have time :) 
Until next time Happy Crafting xx

Disaster Relief Stamp Set: Stronger Together

Close To My Heart have prepared a stamp set designed specifically to benefit those affected by disasters, such as the recent hurricanes in the United States and the wildfires throughout the US and Canada. The stamp set is titled Stronger Together and features a variety of sentiments that can be used for comfort, encouragement, and more.
My Acrylix® Stronger Together (C1716)

This C-size set is available for purchase starting today; you can find it on my website using item number C1716.

Recommended My Acrylix® blocks:
1" × 1" (Y1000), 1" × 3½" (Y1002), 2" × 2" (Y1003), 3" × 3" (Y1006), 2" × 3½" (Y1009)

In order to be able to support multiple needs, CTMH have determined that proceeds from the sale of this set will be donated to the Red Cross, which provides relief efforts to multiple disasters, and which will allocate the funds to where they are needed most. In order to maximise the donation amount, this set will be non-commissionable. This way all proceeds—including the amount that would normally go toward paying commissions—will be donated to the Red Cross.

I can't wait to get my set and create some amazing projects with these sentiments :)

Until next time happy crafting my friend xx
