Brand New Crafty Best Friend :)

Hello lovelies and hope you are all OK.

It's been another hectic few weeks where I could  not see my desk for stuff. Plus I had my Covid vaccine and I was a bit under the weather for a couple of days - nothing major, and I'd take that over getting the actual virus any day of the week!!
But we have cleared the decks a bit and calm has been restored!!

So I thought I'd do a bit of a double whammy here. 
I've made this using the new colour trend - first one of the year - from Tonic Studios and it's all about soft and pretty pastels. 

I'll pop my affiliate links to everything here at the end in case you want to have a mooch.

Also I used a brand new piece of kit which has just been released. 

So I do love a bit of stencilling but I have to be honest and say I've never been that successful. 

But Tonic have released a brand new piece of kit for your craft room in the shape of this ... 

... magnetic platform.

Honestly it's like having a spare pair of hands. The super strong magnets anchor your work down so no more slipping about and you get fabulous results. 

I am well impressed with it.

The stencil I used here is called Dreamy Daisy - so pretty. And I used the inks from the colour trend, plus some pretty Nuvo Jewel Drops. 

I love how it turned out.

So that's my card and I will be back before too long because I have so much stuff to share.

Till then, take care and stay safe and well xx

Home Sweet Home


Hi lovelies - hope you are all OK.
I'm having a bad run at the mo - food poisoning last week (very yukky!!). 

On the mend now though, touch wood.

I'm sharing a cute little house gift box which I made using Tonic Studios Designer Choice #17 - Home Sweet Home. These sets go really fast so if you fancy having a go, I'll pop my affiliate links at the end of the post.

I've also popped a video on my YouTube channel and you can see it here - 

Here's some pics - I've left the top unfastened so you can see where the string goes to close ....

All the little elements on here are made using the dies in the set and I think they're super cute.

You could easily turn them into a little church to pop a wedding, Christening or confirmation gift card in. 
Or how about a spooky house for Halloween? 
Or a beach hut? 
Or a dog kennel?

The list is endless.

Right, I'll leave you pondering lol. 
Take care and see you soon xx

A New Kit (and it's very pretty )

Hello lovelies - hope you are all OK.

So today I'm sharing a card I made for the launch of a brand new Tonic Studios kit - we are up to kit #42 now.

If you haven't seen these, they are a boxed kit which you can either buy with a monthly subscription or you can buy as a one off. 

And each month you get dies, stamps, cardstock and some Nuvo goodies. 

They go like hotcakes and are very popular.

So this month it's a Spring theme with a  pretty pink, gold, lemon and yellow colours

And this is one of my cards.

There's a verso edged die that can cut in or out of your card and all I did here is cut it into the white cardstock and trim the ends. 

It's a stunning pattern and suitable for loads of occasions.

I added some Nuvo sequins which are also in the kit - you get 2 different coloured sequins in nice bottles :)

This month there's an embellishment pick up tool included in the kit which makes adding these a breeze. 

I stamped the sentiment straight onto the yellow cardstock - easy peasy.

Add a bow and a little butterfly cut with one of the dies in the kit and there's a card which did not take very long at all to do.

Hope you like this and if this is something you want a mooch at, my affiliate links are listed below.

Take care and see you soon as soon and stay safe and well xxx
