Tilda dancing with Stars

Hi there,
how are you today?
I am pretty excited to show you a little box I made using this adorable new stamp from Little Christmas collection. From my understanding, there have been 6 stamps released and there will be further released later on towards the end of August... so if you like these adorable stamps, keep an eye out for more!

This is Tilda dancing with Stars. 


I used my Cricut and made a star shaped box. The template/cut file is from My Time Made Easy


I then used the Starlight Lace doo hickey die to make the pretty star lace edging. All of the edges are inked with Tea Die dirstress ink.


The pearl string and flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the pine cone and pine leaves are from a Time Holtz die, along with more doo hickey dies cuts to decorate - Tilda Ticket, Star Tag and Angel Wing.


The top layer of cardstock is embossed and a generous amount of stickles added. 

I hope you've seen the collection around in the stores. I know I am in love with the little bears! So cute. 
Take care and I hope to be back later in the week with more to share!
Until then - Hugs

MDUC - Make or alter a gift box

Good morning friends!
Its time for a new challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges
The challenge is to make a gift box... loads of fun! The choice of what you can do is simply endless. 
This week we are looking for a Guest DT member as well, so head on over to the blog and check it out. 


I love this adorable new stamp. She is Autumn Tilda with Pencils from the Turning Leaves collection. Her hair is amazing, a joy to colour. 


I decided to make a little box about 3 x 6 inches. It is simply a tray that slides into a sleeve. The gorgeous papers are Simple Story, left over from my last Mag Ink creation. 
The flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts.


Just more photos, I really love how this one turned out. I guess the pink and blue can't really fail can it? lol. 


Thanks for visiting me :o)
I hope you get a chance to enter at MDUC this week, we'd love you to be our random winner.
Until later, 
Hugs xx

Wild Orchid Crafts - Going Round in Circles

Well friends, I almost didn't post this card. I just don't feel as though it is up to scratch. 
But I have decided that I will.... we're all human after all ;) However... I am a couple of days late posting it. 


I was inspired by a card I saw of Claudia's a few weeks ago. I love the idea of the little circles however, I am really dissatisfied with my attempt..... so you know what? I'm just going to have to try it again aren't I?? 



I hope you get a chance to play with the team at Wild Orchid Challenges this fortnight, we'd love to see what you come up with. 
I'll be back tomorrow with another card I made with a stamp from the new Turning Leaves collection. 
Until then,

MDUC: Fun with Paper Doilies + My Mum's birthday card

Hi there everyone, 
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. 
We have had a lovely one so far. Yesterday we headed down to the coast to visit my parents for my Mum's birthday. She celebrated a special birthday (not going to divulge her age on the WWW though!!) so I made her a special card. 


This is adorable Tailor Tilda from the new Falling Leaves collection. Isn't she adorable? I love her little vintage sewing machine. She was released just in time to make this card for my mum - who loves to sew. 

The adorable Dress Form chipboard is from Make it Crafty. The little wooden cotton reel is by Maya Road.
All of the lovely pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 


The pretty ribbon and lace are both from my local craft store, Scrap N Stuff. 



And finally the full version of the card. It is cut on my Cricut into the shape of a cotton reel. 

The challenge over at MDUC this week is Fun with Paper Doilies... you can use a premade one or make one with a die. I do have one sticking out a little bit on my card. Sorry its not overly obvious! 

We would love you to come and join us at MDUC this week. The girls have created some beautiful projects to share with you. Until tomorrow, have a great weekend!

SURPRISE!! Its a baby shower for Louise!!

Hello there friends!!
We're having a baby shower over at MDUC for our gorgeous teamie, Louise
Louise is expecting her second bubba, due any day now and we wanted to help her celebrate by throwing her a baby shower. 
We all wish we could be with her in person to do this, but this is the best we could come up with.
The girls at MDUC have put together some beautiful baby inspiration to share with all of you. 

Louise is a close friend of mine and we are all eagerly anticipating the arrival of the newest addition to her family.  It has been an exciting few months for Louise and her gorgeous family. We wish them the very best and know their newest addition is going to be as perfect as their first daughter, Signe. 

The challenge for all of our MDUC friends to join in with is an inspiration photo with the theme - baby. 


I have made a gift for Louise, a door hanging for the new baby's nursery. 
I had so much fun making this for Louise. Its a joy to make a baby gift :o) 
I have masked Hobbie the Bear with Sweet Moon. 
The frame is cut using my Cricut and then the bottom layer punched with a MS Deep edge punch. 


All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I had to show you some photos of my little guys in their PJs, straight out of bed with bed hair, lol. They wanted to be a part of the baby shower for Louise. 


Louise - I hope you are thoroughly surprised!! The girls really went to town, hahaha. 
We wanted to make the last few days of waiting special. 
Best of luck over the next few days, I hope your little princess is kind to you. 
We can't wait to meet the newest addition to your gorgeous family. 
Take care!

And big hugs!!

The Sketchy Challenges - Sandy's sketch

Hi everyone! Long time no see. 
Gosh, it has been a whole week since my last post. That is quite unusual for me! 
I have a disgusting throat virus this week and can't seem to shake it so I've been a bit absent. 
Fingers crossed it leaves me alone soon!


My card today is for The Sketchy Challenges. This week Sandy is hosting the challenge and has a great sketch for you to play with. We are sponsored by Sandy's new store - Live and Love Crafts with a fantastic gift voucher for the lucky winner. You can check out the blog for Live and Love Crafts here.  I've been and checked out her stock and OMG - look out credit card - there is a lot of seriously fantastic stock to be seen. 


All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I'll be posting on their blog a bit later with a list of items used so you can head on over and fill your shopping carts to the brim. 

I do have another card to share with you tomorrow so I'll see you then! Thanks so much for stopping by.
