Little bit extra

Really should be getting on with work but I decided to make a card instead! :p

I used papers printed from a digi kit from Create My Keepsake some Papermania silk flowers and brads, index tab thingy is Making Memories and a few buttons from my box.

Thanks for the sketch DMCers and the break from work, lol!

DMC Dare this week, make a card using no pre made embellishments...

This was sooo difficult I kept having to check myself when I went to reach for a bit of ribbon or a button. I ended up raiding my off cuts, doodled some swirly bits on them and cut them out, made an arrow the same way. I stamped the bit at the top and printed out the other bit.

Still think it needs ribbon though, lol!

Thanks for another fabby challenge!

Ribbon Goodies

Thought I'd show off my DT Creations, 1. because I love the kit Bea sent to bits and 2. because I love the kit Bea sent to bits!

Clock, made with Urban Lily paper (Cheeky MayElla collection) Making Memories chipboard and ribbon from the mono kit. I got the clock bit from ebay (99p bargain! :D). Just make it up like a LO, I used a Pizza box base for the back of mine, covered with black card and edged with ribbon but you could use something like MDF too, drill a hole for the clock bit to go through. stick it in and you're away!

This is the tin from the kit I've covered with some funky patterned paper, (paper reminded me of Benefit stuff, of which I have a load, just because I like the packaging!) painted pink and filled with nail files (I made from chipboard, cover one side with fine grain sandpaper and the other with patterned paper) and hair elastics, just shop bought ones I've tied ribbon round.

Wooden hangers from IKEA, the pink one I've painted and stamped with the Technique Tuesday Swiss Dot stamp and decorated with the chipboard bit from the kit, buttons and a letter sticker. The other one I painted cream and covered the front with Scenic Route papers, a blossom and vintage button.

Sketch book for layout sketches, all the little tags I've used as index tabs, so I can quickly flick to 8x8's 12x12 etc.

And a thank you tag for Bea, just a bit different to a card, you can hang them up in your crafting space (or who you send them to can, lol :D)
You can get the mono kit right now here, 100% recommended, (especially as there's a TDF 1inch wide chunky polka dot double sided one in there that's just delishness!!).

Junk Food Tree

It's food themed fun on the menu this week at the DMC dares HQ. I made a load of Fimo food a while back for another project and had lots left over so I got it all out and this idea just came to me, no idea why lol. It's a genetically modified junk food tree. Maybe we'll have them in the future, who knows lol. It'll be perfect for my bros birthday, coming up in a few weeks time. All the food I've made from Fimo and the tree is card and K& Co and Basic Grey patterned papers.
Think I might do another different one before the end of the week (got lots more food left over). :D
Thanks for another fabby challenge girls!

DMC Goodiness

Being back playing along with the DMC dares feels fabby, especially when I have new ribbons to play with!!! :D

Love the template so I did a couple. I used Scenic Route and Circus Rose papers, ribbons from Ribbon Oasis a bit of blingy Bazzill bling, Heidi Swapp brads, fabric, cardboard, stamps and a MME rub on.
