It's difficult to say, but I may have saved the best for last in the third preview to Tuesday's return to Create & Craft. This could also be one of my favourite shows with all of the goodies that will be available. I'm still not sure how it's possible to have brand new craft products … Continue reading Return to Create & Craft – Preview 3 of 3
I have to admit I am loving the break between Christmas and new year, with no time pressures, no deadlines and nowhere in particular to be. We've been on walks, relaxed in front of the TV catching up with the Chrismas specials, and played with the kids' new toys. I do however have one eye … Continue reading Review of the year
It's not to late to make a few last minute gifts this Christmas. Phew! That's a relief as I still have six to make!! This simple calendar gift will be cherished for the entire year and is suitable for making gifts for men as well as women, something I often struggle with. Handmade gifts tend … Continue reading Last minute gift idea
My brother has become renowned for his extravagent Christmas gift wrap, pulling out all the stops ....and the pound notes.... to outdo us all with the presentation of his (admittedly well -thought) gifts. He's purchased amazing gift boxes, gone rustic with brown paper and string coupled with extravagent gift tags that can be used for … Continue reading It’s a wrap!
Last week we celebrated my little lady's 9th birthday. To put this blog post into context, she is an enormous Harry Potter fan. And I mean a fan, to the extreme! For example when she hands her homework in, she puts Harry Potter as her name. (What's that about?!) And for her creative writing lessons … Continue reading Handmade Harry Potter Themed Birthday
I saw a tweet last week from a lady called Lucy, posting as @Shawtiibabyy and was immediately inspired to have a go at the boxes she had created. She had in turn been inspired by a tutorial by Linda Parker which I watched and then created my own Cricut file (only using the free shapes available) … Continue reading Cracker style gift box – Free cut file
I know I have been mentioning the big C word on my blog since July but I feel it's finally OK to mention preparations for Christmas without feeling guilty! It's a wonderful time for crafters if you can stay organised and not leave everything until the last minute as there are so many opportunites to … Continue reading Tuesday Tip – Decoupage Craft Projects
Christmas is hurtling towards us at a pace! Like most crafters, I feel like I've been thinking about Christmas for months and the fact that it is less than seven weeks away shouldn't come as a shock, but actually it did! I do have some Christmas crafts ready for the big day and I have … Continue reading Christmas Countdown Craft Challenge
It might have been the weekend, but I really didn't mind working Sunday afternoon as I was in my happy place - the Create & Craft TV studio, working with the lovely lady, Rachel Pierman. I love shows with Rachel, we have a giggle and compare notes about our birthdays. Did you know she's … Continue reading In my happy place
This week's #TuesdayTip has once again been taken over by another show review as my shows were scheduled on a Monday again. Instead of one tip, I am going to share four card layout ideas and a couple of pics of cute decoupage demos from yesterday too. Can you tell from my image at the top … Continue reading I want it all…and I want it now!
