CCW Christmas Countdown – Day 28

Christmas Countdown 2012 – Day 28
27 Sleeps to go

Welcome to day 28 of the creative craft world christmas countdown, today is my turn to share my last festive project with you. Each year we give someone a bottle of wine and I always feel like they aren’t personalised much being put into a gift bag, so this year I have decided to make some gift tags to go over the bottle neck.

There are many ways to make them and I am in the process of making some more so will add throughout the month to show you how to make different versions. My other project is my gift box which is holding a gift for a friend, I can’t show you as they read my blog and I don’t want them to know.

Thank you for joining in our Christmas countdown and don’t forget we would love to see your own makes if we have inspired you throughout the countdown. Pop back tomorrow for another of my projects.

WOYWW – 182

Standard

Wow another week has gone by and its wednesday again, so that only means one thing, a snoop around other peoples desk in What’s on your workdesk wednesday. Julia over at the stamping ground lets us all peek at her desk each week and in return we can share ours. Why not pop over and join in the fun, you’ll soon come to love desk hopping on a Wednesday.
For those of you who have popped over to my desk before you will have noticed I have jumped ship from blogger and joined wordpress, I was having lots of problems with blogger so thought the best thing was to try out wordpress and see how I get on, so far so good, except I don’t think I can bring my followers with me 😦

Anyway what have I been up to this week and what is on my desk…

Well the weekend we had my beautiful daughter Poppy’s 3rd birthday so I spent all day Saturday making her cake, now cupcakes I can make but a big birthday cake that is a different story but I tried and this is how it came out, I know its not perfect but she loved it so I’m happy.

 

So needless to say my desk has been a little neglected this past week but I have got a little pile of cushions waiting to be sewn up and stuffed. I need to go and get some more stuffing so they have been piled up waiting for me to go. These are the latest cushions I have made.


Anyway I will post more pictures of the birthday over the coming week I’m off for a little desk hopping with a nice cuppa.

The birthday girl:

Happy WOYWW

September Scrap Map @ Creative Craft World

Standard
Wow another month has gone by but at least we are having some nice weather, I have really enjoyed being able to play outside and have some fun in the sun with the girls. Hope you have too.
Anyway its the first Saturday of the month and there is another chance to win over at Creative Craft World with a brand new scrap map.
Pop across to the blog hereand take part.Here is a copy of the scrap map:

 

 

 

 

 

My LO features some of the elements in the scrap map, this one I looked at the scrap map in the morning and did my LO in the evening without looking at it again. I really try to use the scrap map as a starting point. I have used the gorgeous Echo Park Sunshine mini theme pack available instore. I think you all know I am a huge Echo Park fan by now, they are so easy to use and co-ordinate.

 

Anyway here is my LO:

This is our first proper summer holiday with Poppy in 2011, we went to Sandbanks and had a lovely time, she hated the sand at first but after a few minutes we couldn’t get her off it.
This is a close up of the embellishments at the top of the LO, these are stickers from the sticker sheet included within the collection pack.Hope to see you all enter into the challenge for a chance to win a kit worth £10 and a months GDT with us over at CCW.

Thank you for popping by and hope you all enjoy some sun this weekend
