Enjoyed making this notice board for one of my grandsons. I uses some 'boys' paper and cut and covered the board, then the create a critter 2 got some use and I made and added the critters. the letters of his name I cut from the font on Suburbia. I put some embellishments on the back to cover the 'knots' where I tied the elastic.

Any ideas for filling them??????
cracker was made in an online class.
Made these little houses for my trainers at the gym. They are cut from the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge (the store pg 26) and cut them at 6.5 inches. I find that the 'sign post' is very fine, so I cut a small piece of card stock and 'backed' the sign piece. I wrote the persons name on the sign with gold gel pen. the butterflies are from SU (I just love them). I bought some tiny Father Christmas's and put one in each house with a dimensional so that he is 'looking out the window'. I filled the house with Hershey's Kisses.
I used two pieces of card stock and reversed them e.g. the green house has red windows etc and the red house has green windows etc. both houses have the same roof. I put 'stickles' on the butterflies to give them a bit of sparkle.
hope you like.

I just loved making these little Christmasy things. All the teddys will hold a bag of goodies like the Christmas Bells one on the top left. I like the triangle boxes as they hold cupcakes or small jars of jam or by removing the 'inner' you could fill it with lots of goodies. - the triangle boxes were cut from 'sweet tooth boxes' and the teddy bears from Teddy bears on parade. the frog (toad??) I just made from a circle and my imagination. the Christmas Cracker was an online demo.

I didn't like the idea of just handing over a packet of seeds for a gift, but a gardening friend felt she would appreciate a packet of seeds. So I jazzed them up by doing this. The pot is a little plastic planter pot, filled it with that stuff you put dried flowers in, got 3 sticks from a tree in the garden. I cut a piece of card the same size as the seed packet and taped a stick between the card and the seed packet. Used the hot glue gun (for the first time) and glued the butterflys to the other sticks and poked them into the base. covered the top of the planter with little glass stones. Used some Christmas paper and put around the planter and added a Stampin Up Christmas Tag. Made the cat from Cindy Loo cartridge. cut some teeny tiny butterflys from Stampin Up punch and stuck two onto the seed packet so they 'sat on a flower'. I think this looks much nicer than 'just a packet of seeds'
The centre of the cracker is embossed on the CuttleBug.

I have just loved making these. They are from the Tags Bags Boxes and more 2 cartridge. I made the lady from cardstock and covered her with some faintly embossed paper that my daughter had given me, I covered the bodice and strip around the bottom of her skirt with sticky sparkly ribbon (I think I got it at the Sanzi workshop in Auckland), made the guy from dark brown card with a shirt of a similar paper to the lady's dress, the little from is from my friend Ema. The box is made with some pages from L'll Rosie Designer Scrapbook paper and roses etc from my friend Ema. I think it really cute.

It is lovely to make and her instructions are very good. My photography as usual is terrible - the inside has little holders with cards inside so you can write recipes (or put photos on) or it could even be used as an address list etc. I may add some more decoration to it.
You know you are tired when you find that the new double sided tape that you are using does not stick - only to discover (after getting very frustrated) that you have not taken the backing paper off it!!!!!!! ha ha.
