Family Creations

Hello Everyone

Today I sharing two little projects I made for my family members recently.

First my sister had her birthday a couple of weeks ago. Maria and I are buying each other a sisters' day out later in the year for our birthdays, (we are going to a show, cream tea and a fabby dinner), but I wanted to give her a little something to open on her special day.

I bought her a little pot of eyeshadow and made a pretty little gift box for it using the Big Shot machine and a Mini Milk Carton die.


It is closed with a paperclip with a little narrow taffeta ribbon in Marina Mist to match the ink I used. Did you notice the French Foliage stamps in evidence again? I am loving that set so much.

I finished the box with the M from Broadsheet Alphabet and a rhinestone for a bit of birthday bling!

My next card features another stamp set I really love - Just Believe. I made this as a Mothers' Day card, (for my US visitors, Mother's day is earlier in the UK).


I had a play with my Colour Spritzer Tool to get the speckled effect on the Sahara Sand card. The flower is stamped in White Craft Ink and I finished the card with a button threaded with Linen Thread.



Inside I used a top note insert, the butterfly comes from Nature Walk, (another lovely stamp set from the new Mini Catalogue) and the sentiment is from Occasional Greetings - a very useful set to own.

Back with some more projects soon.
