Pineapples!

The pineapple stamp set retired last year, however I had to keep it in my stash as a bestie said how much she did not relate to the Pineapple trend that you see all over the shops right now.

It was recently her birthday.  I felt it was my duty to get her a pineapple keyring

and a pineapple mug

and make a pineapple tag with the retired stamp (plus the new Happy Birthday thinlit)

And wrap it all up in a cute bucket from Kmart with some gorgeous little pineapple lights.

Obviously she LOVED it.  In an added insult the mug was broken along the way and she cut her finger on the glass #winning

Happy Birthday Mel.  I’ll start collecting for next year…..and remember I “hate” diamonds 🙂

Test tubes!

I love 3D projects and so I fell in love with the new test tubes in the Holiday Catalogue.

Here is a little project I designed for our recent launch day, I thought this would be a perfect little gift for colleagues or a child’s class mates. They are really quick and easy to put together.

Your cardstock is 6 1/2 x 2 inches.  Punch the top with the scallop tag topper.  Score along the long side at 1 inch, 1 3/4 inches, 4 inches and 4 3/4 inches. You will then punch out circles with the 3/4 inch punch.

Too much fudge is never enough…

One of my daughter’s friends was just about to celebrate a milestone birthday.  Sally is allergic to cocoa butter and so can not have a lot of the chocolate that is available in the shops.  We have worked out the cooking chocolate that we can use in my fudge recipe that you can find here.  I worked out a gift that I could make for her with some special touches from my daughter.

We started with this split ring…

And then I made a series of numbered tags, one for each year, each tag had a punch on the back with sweet sentiments about their friendship.

As you can see they are a collection of different themes and ideas, current and retired products.

This cute little cat was made with the Fox Builder Punch.

Once all the tags were made I added them to 18 bags of fudge…

The idea is that once the fudge is all gone the tags can be threaded onto the split ring as a book of love.

Here’s the card that Tegan had to go along with the gift…

And yes…Sally loved it.

 

 

Desk Calendars

Here’s a perfect little something for someone!  I’m sure most people would find a little calendar and some post-it notes handy.  I love giving these to teachers and to friends who have jobs that tie them to a desk.

 

The little calendars can be found at scrapbooking shops or online.

These little free standing calendar/post-it notes combinations are easy to put together and do not use very many supplies.

Start with a sheet of A4 cardstock, cut it down the length at 10.5 cm.  With one of these pieces score at the centre (approximately 14.8cm) and then score again 7.4cm.

Cut the other strip at 14.8cm, I know the score lines are difficult to see, this is what you’ll have.

Adhesive only goes on the longer piece, on that first section to the score line.

This is how it will fold up once assembled….

You can decorate the top layer to your tastes.  I’ve used a sentiment from “Layering Love” and some paper from a retired pack that is very similar to “Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper”.

Line up the smaller piece over the top matching the bottom and sides.

Now you should be able to use your fold lines to get it to stand up, when you have it as you like it adhere a stack of post it notes (this will act as an anchor too).

Viola!

Another design….

I’ll be back soon with a tutorial on how to do my background!

 

Easy fun gift giving!

I’m happy to be known for giving fudge, it is easy and appreciated – what’s not to like about that?  My recipe is no secret, you can find it here.

The box punch board is a simple way to make many boxes in lots of different sizes.  The punch boards are about the same price as a punch and are incredibly versatile.

This video describes how to use the punch board beautifully.  We also have the envelope punch board and the gift bag punch board, I love both of them too.

 

Botanical Builder!

The Botanical Builder Framelits would have to be my most used set in the current Annual Catalogue, I absolutely love it.  Here are some recent projects that I have made using them.  I have added a product list but it isn’t complete, if you have any questions please let me know.

These little treat boxes featured below were made using some cute little pillow boxes I was given.  The sentiment is from “Flower Patch”.
