Summer fun - Sweet Stampin'

** Apologies for the late post again. I seem to be having problems with scheduled posts not going live at the moment. waiting for a reply from the Blogger team!**


Good morning all! It's Saturday again, so time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'
This week's challenge may seem like a bit of wishful thinking, at least to those of us in the UK, as the theme this week is Summer fun.

When I think of summer fun, I think of the seaside, and this led me to think of pirates, which resulted in this card below:


I hope you'll come join me and the rest of the Sweeties this week, and share your summery creations with us (because, frankly, it's all the summer we're going to get, it seems...)

Have a fantabulous weekend!

August challenge - Rhedd's Creative spirit

Hello again all,

And of course August means time for a new challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit too!

I had some fun making a configurations box...



Most of the goodies in this configurations box came in the lovely monthly boxes sent out by Craft box.


Yes, that's a car from a Monopoly game, painted gold!



The wagon wheel I bought from a stall selling dolls house items. I thought it was perfect for a project like this.



One of my favourite things was coming up with different things to put inside the vials...

I hope I've inspired to you make something of your own and then come share it with us!

Have a fantastic day!

August challenge - Altered eclectics

Morning all!

It's August already! (though you wouldn't guess it looking outside here... I don't think it's stopped raining in a month!) and of course that means new challenge time over at Altered Eclectics!

This is what I made for your inspiration:


I decoupaged a wooden block with a napkin (after painting it a lovely Spun Sugar), and had lots of fun decorating it after. I certainly didn't spare the flowers!

I hope you'll come play with us this month, and don't forget to come see what my fellow teamies have prepared for you!

Be right back with my second post of the day...

CAKE! - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

It's new challenge time over at Sweet Stampin', and our theme this week is Cake! yum!

And who does cake better than Lili of the Valley, right?

Here's my offering:


And speaking of cake... The craft fair for the charity I volunteer for is today, so wish us luck. we want to make lots of pennies for the orphans we look after, so we need all the fingers you can cross!
I've been telling people all week that there will be a cake stall, so if that doesn't bring them, I don't know what will, lol.

Hope you'll come join us this week!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Photo inspiration - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

It's new challenge time at Sweet Stampin', and this week we have a photo inspiration challenge for you.

We are using this gorgeous picture:



I decided to use the macaroons and some of the pretty colours, though I was having camera issues and the colours haven't come out at all like what they're supposed to! It's actually a mint/pastel pink combo, rather than the sage/orange-pink it appears to be, lol.



The macaroons were from a magazine freebie (as was the sentiment), and I masked and stamped it several times to get the stacked effect.
The teacups are a Tim Holtz Bigz die.

I hope you'll come play with us. just pick anything at all from the picture that inspires you, and join us!

Have a great weekend!

July challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hello again, another post from me this morning.

It's my turn to host the challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit this month, and we have some gorgeous inspiration lined up for you. hope you'll go take a peek!

I did a trio of mixed media canvases, using lots of Craft Box supplies..




They're just under 6" each, and make a nice little set, I think. They'll be going up for sale at the craft fair we're having for the charity I volunteer for at the end of the month... fingers crossed we make lots of pennies, as it all goes to feed, clothe and educate orphans and young mothers in the Burmese refugee camps in Thailand.

If you check back on the 15th, I will have a tutorial for one of the canvases prepared for you.

I hope you'll come and join us!

Have a fantabulous weekend!
