Witchy Accessories

As I've mentioned before I love everything to do with Halloween and have a fascination with witches. I've really got into making Prim ornaments and here is a picture of my witchy boots and hat. They are made out of muslin painted with black acrylic paint, baked in the oven and then a 'secret' recepie of cinnamon paint applied, back in the oven and then finished off. I just loved making them - made my house smell lovely too!

Teacher Gifts!

I have started making teacher gifts for the end of term for my daughter. Thought I would start early and avoid the mad rush that I have every year.

This little cupcake box contains 6 matching cupcake notelets.

The yummy cupcakes were cut from Sweet Treets Cricut Cartridge. The background papers are from Pink Petticoat and the cardstock is from Stampin Up!

Monster Dudes!

Couldn't resist making these little note books with my new Cricut Cartridge 'Mini Monsters'! They are so easy to make and have a post-it note pad a little pencil attached. All you need to do is to cut a piece of card 7 3/8" by 3 3/4". Then score at 3 1/8", 3 1/2" and 3 7/8". Fold along the scores and cut two small slits in the folded edge. Stick together with some double sided tape and add your notebook and pencil! I made one for my daughter, one for my husband and one for me!

Fathers Day!

Been busy making a Fathers Day card for my dad. The little fishing bear is a digi image from I coloured it in with my Promarkers and used some papers from my stash and added a couple of card candy. I cut out the 'DAD' using my cricut machine.

Sheep File Folder

Well so far so good, I am now on post 2 for this week as per my plan! Today's crafty project was something I had been meaning to make for ages and just hadn't got round to. So this morning I decided it was time! In the end I ended up making 3 of these folders because they were so easy to make and just look so cute all together! The pattern is a Lauren Meader template and the stamps are from Elzybells Stamps! The coloured cardstock is Certainly Celery from Stampin Up.

Post It Note Box

Well I have finally got my act together and with some new gadgets (a photo cube to hopefully improve my photos!) I hope to start putting some of my creations on my blog! This is the first one that I made the other day. It is such a cute little box and contains 4 little post it notes for all those little notes! The template for this little box and the covers for the notebooks can be found at
