Too Many Lovehearts ?? LOL

I can finally post this on my blog now - this is my OH Chris' Birthday Card (it was his Birthday yesterday).  I used the coloured digistamp I designed myself (posted here).  The heart DPs and heart and bow on the back are from Jak Heath Designs (love her work) and the sentiment is again designed by me.  I punched out some little love hearts using my bargain punches that I got from Lidl's.  Do you think I went overboard on the hearts? (LOL)

Denim Rag Bag - It's Finished!

Hi again.

I've finally managed to find some time to finish my denim bag.  What do you think?  I haven't lined it but I'm gonna try it out first and see how it works and if need be line it later.  I was going to embellish it with some denim flowers but to be honest I like its rough look. 

Now what can I make next ....

Baby Shoe Box

Hi there. Thanks for checking out my blog.

I made a box for the baby shoes I finished last night. It doesn't look like it from the picture but I used slightly different colours for the box and lid. I did make a pink lining for the box but made it slightly too big and it wouldn't fit - oh well never mind. Rather than mess about with it I used some white tissue paper instead. I cut out a tag and stuck it to the inside of the box with a little foam square and emellished the lid with the baby balloons. I'm really pleased with this "card" and hopefully someone else will have a baby soon so I can make another one.

Any Excuse!

I saw these whilst blog hopping the other day and thought they were just too cute. I couldn't wait to try to make them and it just so happened that a guy I work with became a grandad today to a little girl so any excuse...

If you want to make your own - here's how it's done. Be warned it's quite fiddly.

I still have to make a box and a card but that's tomorrow night's job.

My Digital Stamp

Hi, I made this digital stamp to use on Chris' Birthday Card. I draw variations of these for him every so often and thought it would be cool to make him a PROPER one for his card. Here's the pics of the original digistamp and then him in his full glory coloured in on the PC. (I've copyrighted these images cos they're my own design - hope you don't mind) Hope you like them. x

Work In Progress

This is what I'm making at the moment. Chris was throwing out an old pair of jeans so I saved them from the bin to make into a new funky bag for myself. I've ripped the jeans into strips and wove them together. It's a bit fiddley but I really like the look of it. I've a few more strips to add and figure out a way to add the handles - which I'm going to make from the trouser bottom seams. I can't decide whether to line it with something or maybe decorate it with the jean pockets but we'll see...
