Three Little Pigs :)


Hi there lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today and enjoying your weekend :)

Now two posts in as many days???
I know, not like me at all but I am trying to turn over a new leaf and get back to being a more regular visitor to the land of Blog.

So today I thought I'd share a couple or three of the little carts that I made for Create & Craft (sorry I lied about the pigs lol). Everyone seems to like them and I know that some of you have been busy making these - I am totally thrilled about that, wooohoooo :)))))

If you have made any, please leave me a comment with a link to your blog so that I can come and have a nosey (thank you xx)

So here's the first one .....


.. and for this I used papers from a  Country Lady paper pad.

These papers are perfect for these carts because apart from being super pretty, they are just the right weight. Any thicker and they don't fold  and/or sit as well (and I've literally made hundreds of the little blighters over the years).


A bit of lace to go around the edge and plain and simple wheels with flowers for the centre. I used a 6 pointed flower punch and just snipped into the centre and stuck 2 petals together so that they had dimension.

And there's a whole lot of inkin' goin' on here - shock horror!!!!


Same on the top using a bigger punch with a smaller flower in the middle and a Memory Box Lavish Branch die to add a bit of greenery.
Like you do!!!

And now for something blue :)


Sorry for the fuzzies here - what a dreadful pic - but I'm still trying to get to grips with the new camera!!!

There's nothing quite like a bit of Beach Bliss and kraft card (Craftwork Cards is like no other - awesome stuff, the best I've used,  and you can see it here ).


Same idea with the flower and I made a little fringed middle bit using very expensive fringing scissors which I bought donkeys years ago and have never used, so a very good buy then (NOT!!).

Is it just me?????


I made the wheels using some good old Nesties and finished them off with the same punched flower but left flat and a bit of bling

And for the last one, time to get a bit festive .....


... and fuzzy again (so sorry!!)

This one was made using the beautimous Woodland Wishes papers (I sooo love this pad).


And is just added some Ivory Jute Mesh Ribbon, some red berries and a gorgeous Floribunda  Raspberry Ripple Rose, all from The Ribbon Girl. Plus a punched holly leaf and some Magnolia die cut leaves (soz I cannot remember what they are called and I'm too bone idle to get up off of my ass and go downstairs to look!!!).

So that's some of the carts I've made and please do let me know if you've made any cos I would love to see them, pleeeeze :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I'll see ya soon and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

I love these little carts! I'll try and make some before Christmas. I've got you recorded on C&C so I can 'craft along with Dawny' Debra x

Sue said...

These really are stunning Dawny. I love the designs, gorgeous papers and such wonderful detailing you have added to each one. Thank you for the inspiration. I have made a few boxes (following your fab instructions) but haven't got round to decorating them yet. I will let you know when I do.
hugs Sue xx

Great show on C&C and these little boxes are fab. Such a simple yet effective idea to display on a Christmas table or give gifts in. Thanks Dawn for the inspiration. Will definitely be making these and will post asap.
