Sparkly Trees bauble

Hello, and welcome to my blog.

Well, Wednesday’s tutorial could have gone better.  I managed to share a half-edited version of my project, so if you watched it, you got all the times I stopped/started/decided to do a bit off camera etc. 

To explain, I started by filming the box-making process, and then decided that the box would look REALLY GOOD with some crinkled seam binding ribbon – which I needed to order, so I set it aside while my order was delivered.  I then finished the second bit, but, having my mind on goings-on in my day job, forgot that I hadn’t edited it.   A very big Ooopsy was the result.  (I’ve replaced it with an edited version now.) 




Anyway, today’s project is the first of this year’s baubles.  Over the past couple of years, I managed to make at least one per year and I’ve no intention of breaking the tradition!

Early access to the Card Front Builder dies means that I can get well ahead of the game.   Here’s the tutorial - properly edited, I hope!



The dies are part of a mega-suite that’s going to be in the Autumn/Winter catalogue, but you can get them before 1 September because SU have released them early.  I set myself a monthly budget for craft supplies, so I’m really pleased about the early release because there are some really lovely things coming and I already have some of them – so I’ll have the cash for more goodies!

OK, so now I’m going to triple check that I’ve edited my video properly.
See you again soon,

Crafty hugs,

Large gift bag with embossed tag

Hello blog friends, and thank you for visiting today.

It's not easy to tell from the photo, but today's project is a BIG box.  It's nearly 8 inches square and two inches deep, so it'll hold a good-sized gift.  You could probably get at least 6 cupcakes in there, or a good-sized sponge cake.  And it all folds flat, so you can store it out of the way in an envelope until you're ready for it.

It's quite a quick make, so I've also shown you how I did the embossing on the label.  (I showed how to make the Gerbera last week)


This Foil Frenzy DSP is so blingy, it takes my breath away!

What do you think?  I'm going to make a few of these in different sizes ready for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by - see you again soon!

Flip your lid!

Hello, and welcome!

I love an action card so much - such fun to pay with.  Today's card is a flip-top gift card holder.  



I thought the "star" theme, being a bit Hollywood, was in keeping with the cinema gift card inside.  It was totally planned (not!)

It's really easy to make.  

Here's the tutorial -

Flower Power

Hello, and welcome!

I am so happy to be sharing today's project with you at long last.  Why?  Well, all because the Daisy punch is, at last, back in stock.  

One of the great perks of being a SU demo is the we get to see the new stuff before everyone else and we can order some of it ahead of time (plus we get it at a discount - you just can't go wrong!).  We all went WILD for the Daisy punch, so wild that it sold out almost before the annual catalogue went live. 

So I've been holding on to mine, just waiting for the stock to come back so that you can get yours too.

I love making paper flowers.  This is supposed to be a Gerbera.  (Did you know that you can pronounce it with a hard or soft "G"? I didn't, but you can!)  

Anyway, enough waffling on from me.  See you again soon!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren.

Upright Z fold card

Hello everyone, and welcome.

It's summer - well, it's supposed to be, although with the weather we've been having here lately it's not that easy to tell - which is a good time to be beside the sea.   So let's have a sea themed card, shall we?  

This is an upright Z-fold card.  I'd never thought of turning one of these on its side, but I think it works well.  I know I'm going to make more of these! 

Here's the tutorial - 


Isn't it cute?  What do you think?

See you again soon,

Diamond fold box


Hello, and welcome to my blog!  

Today I've made this cute little box.  Don't you love a bit of paper folding?  

I started off with paper that was 9 inches square, but you could make one of these in any size.  It just needs to be square- and not too small!




Here's the folding diagram.  If you watched the tutorial, you might have noticed that I went a bit overboard when I punched the holes for the ribbon - so I've indicated where they SHOULD be on the diagram!

Thanks for visiting - come back soon!

Crafty Hugs,
