Elegant Emerald Box for Mint Lindor Chocolates

My daughter Kayleigh is amazing, she is kind, caring and beautiful inside and out.  As soon as I see her she cheers me up and she always makes me laugh.

Whenever Kayleigh goes shopping she always comes home with something for me, sometimes it’s something she’s seen that I can make a pretty box for or it’s a new chocolate she has found for us to try.

 

When Kayleigh came home with a box of Limited Edition Mint Lindor I just had to make a pretty box for them.

Craftroom Organisation Series – Colour Combinations & More

I really enjoy colouring I find it so relaxing and it’s something I can do when I’m not well enough to go into my craftroom to craft.

I always keep a stack of images to hand that have been stamped onto watercolour paper and thick white cardstock.

When I’ve used my Spectrum alcohol markers for colouring it can be difficult to find a Stampin’ Up! colour that coordinates with the Spectrum colours I’ve used.  A couple of years ago I saw a Connie Stewart video where she had punched circles of every colour of Stampin’ Up! cardstock and used them to come up with colour combinations.  It was a great idea and I did this too but I also found another use for them that saved time, cut down on tidying up and gave me more time to craft.

OnStage Solihull Swaps – Ribbon Scissor Charms

Last weekend Hubby and I went to Solihull for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which is held twice a year.  Demonstrators who attend get a copy of the upcoming catalogue and play with some of the new products.

For the event I made 50+ swaps and I got to swap and chat with lots of demonstrators. I came home with a bag full of swaps that I can use for inspiration.

 

For my swaps I made Ribbon Scissor charms with the Shrinkles Shrink Art sheets, these are great fun to play with.  They reminded me of when I was at school and I used to put crisp packets in the oven to shrink them and make key rings and badges with them.  Did you do that too?

Thank you for joining us today for the Creativity Combined Blog Hop.  When Christine Bettany suggested doing a Thank You blog hop for Sarah Reynolds, who helped a group of us set up our own websites, we all jumped at the chance.

The ladies taking part today would all like to say a massive Thank You to Sarah for all the help and advice she has given us.

 

 

Sarah you are amazing, you have always been there when I needed some help and you work so hard in the background keeping Lady Dee Crafts up and running.  I never thought I would have my own website, you are a star and I can’t thank you enough. Dee x
