Well hello! I know it’s been a while since a good update, but I have been holding off because I had so much to share with you, and I wanted to make it worth your while ;) You’re going to have to work for it though – I’ve got a good pile of craftiness to share with you!
First up, scrapping.
This month’s Scrap The Boys:
Bon’s monthly challenge:
My Write Now challenge for Bon’s – scrap your idol:
Layouts using Bon’s April girl kit (YUMMY Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday goodies!):
And a couple of layouts from Studio Calico kits that I did at Crop for Kids last weekend:
OK, how are we going? Thought I’d give you a breather ;)
Next… I was asked by DH’s gorgeous cousin to make her 21st cake. She requested a TALL cake with chocolate sheets around the edge. After a false start or two, I came up with a six layer, ganache filled mudcake, surrounded by chocolate and topped with red roses. Her colours were cream, chocolate brown and red, so this looked just perfect.
And my last bit of recent creating was this bag for a friend’s 30th. She requested scrappy goodies, but I wanted to make her something special too. This bag is just big enough for a few little scrappy bits when she goes scrapping :) It is from this wonderful pattern HERE with a few alterations. The first photos were pre-buttons – it needed something extra so I popped out to buy these gorgeous buttons for the front. There is a divided pocket on each side of the inner. I wanted to keep this one – I might have to make one for myself!
And this is where it gets fun. I had some extra fabric, a button and some creative energy to burn once I finished that bag, so I made a clutch. It’s cute. But I won’t use it. I carry too much crap around. Sooooooo, do ya want it?
It’s quite large for a clutch. I can easily fit my large purse, iPhone, keys, diary etc in it. It’s soft. It has a little handle on the back for easy carrying. And a buttonhole closure.
All I want you to do is leave a comment telling me about the next creative project you have planned. OR, if you’re not the creating type, what you WISH you could create next.
I’ll pick a winner after Easter, in about a week… And I’m really hoping to have more giveaways in the future. So stick around!
