Hubby Ordered these for me!!
TIME TO PLAY
I have just attacked the postie :) I have been waiting all week for these to arrive. I am sooooo glad the wait is over. My embossing folders and dies for my Cuttlebug are here YIPPEEEEE!!
I ordered embossing folders:
Spots & Dots
and also Funky Circle Frame Die and Paisley dies.
The papers are by Collage Press - Sugar Plum series.
Paisley Sugar Plum and Star Bursts Sugar Plum. The colours are lush!
These are so fun and quick to make. I caged the idea for them on http://cambriaturnbow.blogspot.com (wonderful, amazing stuff on her blog). Such a fab gift idea!!!! I have only done basic stuff on them but they are great little things and so handy to have around the house. My hubby Paul has taken one into work for a lass in the office to try out and make sure it doesnt fall apart!!!!
I used MAMBI Chester papers on the small one, Bazzill Card Stock, Crossgrain Ribbon and a small flip flop charm (pinched from my daughters charm bracelet)
The Green & Blue one - used Swirly Doodles and Denim Daisies paper by Kelly Panacci, Bazzill Cardstock on the insides, Green Satin Ribbon and I also put a strip of ribbon on the inside so that the back of the post its slips over and stays in place.
Black & White - I used DCWV papers on the cover and added a small amount of cerise glitter, Bazzill Cardstock again for the inside and Cerise Pink ribbon again to hold the Post It in place.
On the other green one I used Kelly Panacci Swirly Doodles and added some glitter to the swirls, Bazzill again and some Turquoise ribbon on the inside to hold the Post It in place.
The Post Its were bought from Tesco - sorry they are called Sticky Notes at Tesco. Same thing though!
I have just been and taken the little one to school (these afternoons classes are silly) - so I have a few hours to do a bit of catch up. Have managed to get some crafting done though - so I couldnt have been that icky!
