CD Profile

I have been having a clear out and I have loads of CDs that I got free with the newspaper. I decided to do something a little different than just playing them - hope you like.

I made this hanging with an old CD which I covered with craft paper and layered with the BoBunny timepiece stack. The image was from an old birthday card, the flowers are made from the new Tim Holtz tattered flower garland die. After a meal out the after dinner mint chocolates came on a little plate with the doilies - both came home with me!

I used different papers and even tissue paper I had saved from a previous jewellery purchase. The beads on the centre of the flowers were again from my stash of broken jewellery my Aunt gave me.

Baby Dragon

I was asked to make a 2nd Birthday cake for a friend. Her little boy just loves Dragons.

She told me he didn't want to eat him and asked if he could keep him. Bless him!

Bygone Birdie

I just love Steam Punk and grunging things up. I got a little bird house from a shop in town - what else was i going to do with it? - Grunge it!

If I was a bird this is exactly where I would be living. I tried to make it really eclectic as if a magpie had been helping with the renovations.

The little mouse was from some old broken jewellery that my Aunt gave me. When I sew him I new precisely where to put him.

I really love my little bird house.

Sew... Many Happy Returns

I have been busy baking again and have had several birthday cakes to make one of which is below. My friend at work asked me to make a cake for her mum for her 50th Birthday and she enjoys sewing.

I made the pink sugar roses and then made buttons, a sewing needle, scissors and a bobbin of cotton to place on the cake.

My friends mum loved it and her Nan took it the neighbours to see before anyone could cut it.

A Christmas Past

Ok! So I realise that it is far from Christmas but I made these as gifts last year for my bests friends Clare and Charmiane (your both amazing!). I haven't had chance to add them to my blog but after being several threats of violence thought it was time to do it - so here goes.
This is the calendar that I made for Charmaine using the gorgeous Tim Holtz embellishments. I also used the Kan Ban Industriana papers. I love Steam Punk!

I also made a diary cover in a similar colour scheme for Clare using Tim Holtz also. I had a really great time making both gifts.

I hope the girls liked them as much as I did my gifts from them.

Thanks for taking the time to look!
