Baby boy Exploding box


Hi Everybody

Just been sitting here deciding what to do so I thought I would do an exploding box



The box is 4" x 4" and I have used Centura pearl card and white
linen card. I made the calendar and base for a baby scan on my computer.
The images are from "Pintrest" and I made the blocks which are 1" square
and added the numbers from a free die set I got in a magazine a few
months ago. The papers are Tatty Teddy and flowers and pearls inside the box
 are from "Wild Orchid crafts". On the lid I used "Sue Wilson's Pierced Flags"
and "Poppystamps Stitched Bloom trio". On the outside of the box I used
"Spellbinders Elegant Ovals" dies and "Sue Wilson's It's a boy" die, I won't bore you with 
what is on the other 3 sides!


I hope you like it and any comments you are kind enough to leave are always appreciated

It will be an honour and privilage to share with Poppystamps

Gift Box

                                                                 Evening all.
I spent most of today making this gift box and I hope you like it




I made this using "Spellbinders Detailed Scallops" the biggest one
is 4 5/8 x 6 5/8, I made a box and attached it to one of the largest pieces,
I then decorated the box inside and out using "The Promise" papers and on the edges
I put peel off border and corners
I then made a lid and stuck it to the other biggest Detailed Scallops die cut.
I put lace around the outside of the lid to pretty it up
 I used foam tape to layer the other two die cuts and outlines them all with pearls
I printed an image from "Pintrest" to layer the top die and topped 
it all off with some ribbon and "Poppystamps Stitched Bloom Trio" with some
light green pearls added

Picnic Basket

Morning all
I thought I would post this before I go into the garden to start work out there
Today's project is a picnic basket




I saw this on Pintrest and thought I would have a go at making one
It took forever to do but was worth it in the end
It can be used for Easter eggs, Jewelry box or for putting chocolates in for someone special.

Baby keepsake

Morning
What a beautiful day it is, the sun is shining and it is lovely and warm.
Today I decided to show you a pram I made last year for my niece


I found the template for this on Pintrest but it had no measurements on it
so I had to make it up as I went along


I had to make a presentation box for it as it finished it off really nice
I have used "spellbinders" dies for the wheels a "Martha Stewart"
punch for the corner decorative parts and "spellbinders die for the tag

Thank you for looking in and for any comments you are kind enough to leave

Just a bit of fun today, I have made loads of 
Easter Bunny baskets for my craft fair which is a week on sunday


They are very easy to make but very fiddly.
All you need is card, "sizzix" heart die, "spellbinders" ovals dies
Wiggly eyes and ribbon.


Put these 2 on so you can see a close up, I still have more of these to make
oh joy!

As always thank you for looking in and any comments you leave 
are greatly appreciated xx Janis xx
