Busy Busy busy busy xx

 Happy Wednesday you lovely lot

I hope you are all keeping well?? Staying safe and keeping busy! So who knows what the next few months will bring but at least the vaccines seem to be rolling out quicker! The quicker they do the sooner we see all those love ones we miss! Or get to go further than 5 miles 

I've been busy working away on my magazine pieces and having some fun times with Hubby and Jura! We even managed a lovely hike on Sunday before the rains came back! Here's hoping Spring will bring some more sunshine for us!!


Have you seen the latest Hunkydory Box Magazine?? Above is some of the makes I had so MUCH fun making and even made a couple of extra cards 'just because'!

Below is a wee Gift Card Holder that you pull the knot of the ribbon to get to the card



and my most favourite make this year so far has got to be this little Flower Cart! I had days of trying to get it just right and then making a cut file and template so you can make you're own! 


You can find the Hunkydory Magazine here!
Check it out not just for a beautiful Kit but the team have really out done themselves creating cards, gifts and papercrafts pieces to really inspire you all to get crafting!
__________________________________________

I also had the chance to make something for the lovely Lisa Horton and her fantastic new Box Magazine


This is my little Fairy House  that I show you how to make using the kit and some bits you will have in the house! You could make a few and have a wee Fairy Village and add some stamped images to bring it alive!


Will I best get back to work! Some men makes this week and you all know how I rubbish I am at those! But hopefully they will look better than my scribbles 

Take care everyone and stay safe

Ps. Here's my two faves on Sunday! Jura is getting so big!!

Beary Love xx



Happy Sunday you lovely lot

Hope this finds you well? And you’re staying warm in these bitter cold days and freezing nights? Crazy winter compared to the mildness we had last year

Today I wanted to share this cute little Bear Love I was very lucky to receive. The lovely Sophie over at Sofs Paper Planet sent me this after I shared my wee Fox from the last post! I felt very privileged to get this wee cutie and knew just the papers to make him out off


I used the very last sheets from my lovely Paper Posies pack from Dovecraft inked on all the edges and fold lines with Distress Oxide. I added gloss to the ears, eyes and nose to make them stand out after only having a little pale pink paper left. The cutie is 12 inches tall but the SVG file could be adjusted so you could make them in different sizes

Please note the paper are out of stock but Craft Label have some others just as yummy 




 I added a satin ribbon around his neck tied in a bow and added a gem to finish. Next time I’m going to add a space in the back like a hinge to add some wee gift or yummy treats


Remember we are still running our wee Facebook group Use Your Craft Stash and you can join us anytime. We are finding it a good way to use our crafty stash and keep us busy during this lockdown and winter months

Well almost time for dinner then we have Perfect Planet tonight before Monday again
Take care and stay safe

Little Fox xx

 Happy Sunday

I hope you are all well and having a good week?? Things have been so busy here with work that I can't wait for you all too see! So pleased with my little .......... I made for you all to make you're own! Watch this space

We took restored to just recharge and poor hubby caught up on some sleep and I binged Taskmaster! How he slept with me laughing like an idiot I have no idea hehehehehe

I have a cute little piece to share with you all that I have wanted to make for ages (like most things lol)


How cute is this little sleeping baby Fox
The file is from the super talented Sophie of Sofs Paper Planet. Some of her creations you can print and make up but this one Tree Fox comes as an SVG too. All the papers are 12x12, all different brands and from my giant stash! But I love the look it gives

PLEASE NOTE - I took lots of pictures but the light kept changing so they all look different! The wall is white but appears cream at times





If you look closely to the picture above there is a 2p coin just between the body and tail. This shows you how BIG this was to make! I used 1 sheet of white pattern, 1 of grey, 3 orange toned and 7 brown pattern papers to create the cutie. It was a flat back so can be perfect for a wall display


I did also create a bundle of flowers I was planning to add to the tree but much preferred it as is! What do you think?? Would you add them

Today is a work planning day, sadly hubby still can't work but at least he can go into the workshop and get away from it. Hopefully these next few weeks will ease a little, people will get their injections and we can see our families!

Take care and stay safe

Welly Boot Season xx

 Happy New Year lovelies

Hello everyone and welcome to 2021!!
We’ve had a slow start to 2021 with some puppy walks and poor hubby having toothache! He’s sorted now but with Scotland and the rest of the UK in another Lockdown it’s not the start we were all hoping for!!??

My crafty friends and I have decided to carry on with our weekly crafting, using up our stash!
For me, I want to try using up some of the SVG files I have along with alllllll those pretty papers I've been saving
I started with a newer file and some of my lush First Edition North Star papers


How cute are these Welly Boots?? I soooooo love them and want to make them even smaller as fab gifts

The file is from SVG Cuts and the lovely Green Thumb set along with the lush First Edition paper and Grey 12x12 card stock. The flowers and leaves are different dies and files along with Distress Oxide Ink and Nuvo Drops. I also used some little gems from Chloes Creative Cards Bling








What do you think? My hubby says they could fit me....... cheeky!!
The papers are Winter themed but you couldn’t tell right away from the Welly Boots or flowers but do look fab against the grey cardstock 

You can join in the fun creating something, anything at all as long as you are using up your crafty stash! It doesn't even need to be paper related, any craft will work! Plus it will help us through this next Lockdown!!!!! See the group here for more inspiration from everyone

Stay safe everyone and take care
