Cute Dolly

I love half-term as I get time to be creative.

This is a cute little felt dolly that I made from a kit. She is a sweetie - called Emily.


From this...

to this...

This was an old toy box that belonged to Maddie. It was covered in nursery stickers that when removed took the paint off too. In order to up date it a little I have "decorated" it using a lovely patchwork of pink papers. I think it is really effective.Maddie is very pleased with it and that makes it all worthwhile.

Found It!

I have finally found my crafting mojo - it has been in hiding for ages and finally decided to resurface at the weekend. I have to say that I am glad to see it back. This is my first completed project in ages and I am really pleased with the final product.
These are embroided corner bookmarks. The idea and design came from my latest Craftseller magazine. I will now try and use the technique and ideas to create my own designs.

Gift Box

I have managed another 2 for 1 this evening. Over on Totally Papercrafts the challenge was "Not a card" and on Moving Along With The Times the challenge was to use "Handmade Flowers". To tie in with both these challenges I have made a gift box topped with a handmade rose. This is the first time I have made one of
these roses and therefore this was real
challenge for me.

Last one for tonight

Again, another 2 for 1 challenge.
Party theme for A Spoonful of Sugar and the sketch from this mornings Sketch Saturday.

Right, off to bed now.


Another 2 for 1 this afternoon. The theme for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge was "Diva-tacular" and I thought this gorjuss girl just fits the bill. The layout is from this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge.

I have followed a tutorial for colouring in with promarkers to colour the image as I felt my last few attampts were a little rusty.
