Child notice board

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.

Wall hanging notice board

 made this wall hanging notice board for my daughter as she has a 'Jandal Wall' at her place. The main centre of the board is a page covered in Jandals and I have added some embellishments at each corner. To hang it I have used Curtain rings. I love the 'create a critter' cartridge and now I have 'create a critter 2' I am just having a lovely time playing with them. The second pic is the back of the board which has shells all over the page.

book for Grandson

 One of my grandsons is going overseas on a 'student exchange' and I have made this little book for him to fill in before he goes. First pic is the front cover (he lives in Whakatane). then I have put 'sticky notes' on the next two pages to explain that a photo goes on the right and the story about it goes on the left. He is a surfer so I had to put in a page with the surf board. And a page of 'walking on the beach'. I have added a number of blank pages so he can add photos and journalling.
I made the book from the 'mini books' cartridge. the 'lettering' from - (I think it was Learning Curves) the jandals and the surf board are from a spellbinders 'surfs up' die. Hope he likes it.

two sets of cups made from the TBBM2 cartridge. Note, read the instructions in the book as first time I made these I did not 'fold them over' and as a result they were not stable and looked 'out of proportion'. I happy with these ones and they are so so so easy.
Any ideas for filling them??????

Christmas Houses

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.

Treasure Chests

spent the day making some things for Christmas for friends. These little 'treasure chests' are made from TBBM2 on page 62 and cut at 6". I like the fact that they are cut in one piece and the front folds in to form a lining which makes them a little more sturdy. Teddy was cut from Teddy Bear Parade and the 'star' (sherif badge) was from create a critter. I used the font on Learning Curve. Ribbon is from American Crafts. I filled them with a packet of 'chocolate coins' that come in a little net bag purchased from the glitter text and family website at
