Checking In and a few small projects

Hi again guys and welcome to my new followers and viewers! I hope you draw inspiration from my blog and feel free to ask questions or comments! I hope you enjoy your visit! I made this video for you guys so you could put a face to a name and get to know me as I am enjoying getting to know you.

So if anyone has any suggestions about the blade dragging on paper, please let me know!
I have sooo many projects in my ideas book to complete and so many new things I want to test out, but life keeps getting in the way! When do you guys like to scrap? Early in the morning before the sun rises? Or are you a late night scrapper like me?
Here are pics of the projects I showed you in the video..

And the card. I forgot to mention that I cut the dolls out with the blackout feature so I could stamp the faces using Peachy Keen stamps.  I coloured the whites of their eyes using a white gel pen...

Have a great week everyone!

Market Night

Hey everyone! I hope you are well. The sun is finally out yay! We have had alot of rain lately includng on craft market night :( We had a pretty good turnout considering the rain. I got to meet alot of new people and all in all it was a great night. Hubby took a picture of me and my stall

I have been working on a few projects but just taking a little break. Right after the markets, my son and I got a nasty virus and have been sick ever since! This means no crafting fo me at the moment. I am laid up in bed trying to get better! Also, I have started up a facebook page for Pink-a-licious. Be sure to go on and "Like" my page! Hopefully I will be back with a video soon guys.

Scrapbook Haul and Some Cards

Hi guys! So what do you think? Do you love the new Pink-a-licious Header? I am so in love with it! A big thanks to Terri over at for designing it for me exactly the way I wanted!
Okay now onto business! I visited a craft expo on the weekend with my best friend, Amanda (Hi Amanda!)
and boy did we shop! Take a look at my haul video...

I have already started using some of the things I purchased. Yesterday I had a day off work and decided to dedicate my day to card making. I made 6 in total which took me a few hours, then I took a nap and didn't get anymore done! Here are some of the cards I made...

And this one which happens to be my favourite...

Hehe I love this card every time I look at it, I laugh! This morning I was having a giggle at it as I was making my son's breakfast and he asked me "What's so funny about breakfast?"

If you guys want card recipes for these creations, leave me a request. Have a wondeful day everyone!

Yummy Gift idea

Hello Everyone, Wow, 10 followers! I am so happy you guys decided to follow my blog. If anyone has any suggestions, comments or questions about any of my projects, just leave me a comment. I looove comments!
Just a quick post today an cute gift idea. These little guys are cupcakes and cookies in a jar.

The cupcake jar has been decorated using the DCWV sweet stack, and you will recognise the cupcake from the create a critter cart. I have embossed the "icing" on the cupcake using cuttlebug embossing folder D'vine swirls. The cupcake wrapper has been scored to give it a 3D effect and then I just added some stickles and a ribbon.
Mr Gingerbread Man (isn't he cute?) was created by tracing around a cookie cutter. I unfortunately couldn't find a gingy on any of my carts :( but I think he turned out cute. His face was stamped using Peachy Keen Pumpkin faces stamps. I used the DCWV sweet stack for the paper and then I dressed gingy up with buttons, bow tie and stickles.
Each Jar contains the goodies needed to create either cupcakes or cookies. The cupcake one comes with mix, directions and 12 sparkly cupcake cases. The cookie jar comes with cookie mix, instructions and a cookie cutter.
And of course once you have made these yummy treats you get to keep the jar!
What do you guys think?

School Mini Album & my first video!

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share this cute mini album which I created for my son who had his first year of school last year.
This album was a year in the making and I have used permission notes, info books and other memorabilia to embelish this mini because I wanted to remember the little things which happeed through this very important year.
I recorded this video last night and Iwas sooo nervous! The quality isn't that great and there is so much more that I wanted to say about the album but I got stage fright! One thing I wanted to mention is that the die cuts which I used were cut from the Locker Talk Cartridge.
Okay here we go, hope you guys enjoy!...

Thanks for watching!

Getting Ready for the Markets

Hi Everyone! Just a quick post for you today, I haven't gotten around to posting on Mini albums yet because I have been super busy getting ready to attend my first Craft Markets! My wonderful friend is organising them and I thought I would have a little table of crafty delights and see how they go. Im still deciding on what to put out on my table but so far I have made these little jars, much like the Valentines day ones I posted on here a few weeks ago. Let me know what you guys think...

Thank you soo much to my new followers. I am so happy that you guys are following my crafting journey! If you guys have any questions or just want to have a chat, just leave me a comment below. More posts coming soon
