Sweet Jelly Babies Birthday Card

April 28th 2013

I made this card recently for a 30th birthday. Although the sweets cannot be eaten as they are stuck to the card with strong glue. The card also had to be doubled up so that it would stand because those jelly babies are quite heavy little things.

Simple Design Birthday Cards

April 13th 2013

For Girls: These simple cards were made with stamps with stamps for the lettering and some pretty Japanese washi paper. The hearts were cut with a heart shaped punch.

For Boys (or girls): I made these simple cards for some guys (always more difficult to make for I find). I made them with stamping for the lettering and a simple corner cut out design.
The other one I made with my corner punch tool (for the rounded edges) and some transfer lettering.

Easter Bunnies

March 31st 2013

I found a lovely knitted bunny tutorial pinned all over pinterest.The bunny is made from one square of knitting.

So I thought I’d have a go myself for Easter. I made it with some fat wool and big needles so I ended up with this fluffy, chubby bunny. I also decided he could do with a face and used some black embroidery thread and some pink buttons for the inside of the ears.

Also since this is a bunny post I thought I’d add this knitted cutie I made for my niece when she was born almost 2 years ago. I found the pattern on the Rowan Wool website. They have lots of lovely things to make with their wool.

A Beautifully Random Cake

March 23rd 2013

I made this cake for my parent’s birthdays (they are within a week of each other). Its decorated with mascarpone icing. I had some edible glitter, blackberries, raspberries and mini marshmallows for decoration. My 5 year old nephew wanted to help so I gave him the decorations to put on the cake and this is the result. I think it turned out beautifully and his grandparents loved it. :)

Its a three layered cake with raspberry and blackberry jam between the layers. The recipe  came from one of the free magazines you can pick up from supermarkets although I forget which one. They usually have lovely baking ideas in them.

I discovered a new craft store near where I work and they sell loads of these scissors with different pattern blades! I couldn’t resist buying myself a pair. I also had an excuse to use them straight away on this card for my sister in law’s birthday.

♦ My birthday ♦

February 23rd 2013

It was my birthday this month and my family know me well. I got a good stock of crafting gifts. Some new gel stamps, a card puncher in the shape of a flower and a button factory which I’m very excited to make use of in my crafts. Also I got a ‘Raffy’ vinyl toy. These are fun do-It-yourself toys by kid robot. The sharpie pens are great for decorating them and theres a whole community out there doing it.
