♥ Let's Craft & Create ~ say it with flowers ♥



I'm joining in the fun again this fortnight with my ole team pals over at Let's craft and create ;) ♥  The theme is "say it with flowers" so this is a little felt rose brooch I made for myself :) :) It has lots of layers, quite plush looking, so I think it would dress up a plain top or a cardigan :) definitely will be making more of these


hugs ♥♥

♥ Festive Friday ~ last challenge of 2013 ♥









It's the last challenge of 2013 over at Festive Friday's and you can choose any theme from the past year.  I chose "star element".  I hand stitched 2 felt stars and a heart in the centre {so it has a 3d look, couldn't capture it too well with my camera}... adding a little wooden star to embellish. I thought this sentiment from Papertrey fitted well with this design :)


Thanks for popping by

♥ Let's craft and create ~ glitter ♥


Let's create and crafts challenge this fortnight is "glitter" ... I hope mine is okay to qualify as mine is more of "sparkle" than actual glitter, but thought I would join in the fun ;)
I made this wee flower brooch for my Mum she looooves brooches :)
I used my Papertrey dies to cut out the flowers layering the different sizes and added some hand stitching and a sparkly bling button.  I am running low on felt ... LOL ... need to stock up :)



Thanks for popping by
enjoy your day!!

♥ Rosette felt heart ♥



Another heart to share today  I made this for my cousin and I really love this one ;) I will send it to her as a little surprise as she loves to receive handmade gifts and cards. I used my Wplus9 heart large die and Memorybox small rosette die adding a pearl and leaf.  I think these would look beautiful as little wedding favors or maybe a larger one for the ring bearer


Thanks for stopping by and if you think these would
show interest in my Etsy will you leave me some feedback?
Something to think about for 2014 ;)

♥ Festive Friday challenge ♥






I made this wee Christmas decoration to enter into the Festive Friday challenge, using felt, die cuts and jute and a jingle bell :)
I love the colour combo, so I thought I would make a decoration instead of a card


Have a lovely weekend

♥ pink felt Christmas stocking ♥





Back again today with another felt decoration ;) This little decoration was cut out using a Sizzix Christmas stocking bigz die, these dies are amazing!! they can cut through 2 sheets of felt at a time.
The gorgeous felt was sent to me from my lovely wee blogging pal Michelle from The Card Grotto ♥ I decorated the top with ribbon, a white jingle bell, and some pink beaded berries from Ribbon girl.


Have a lovely weekend
and thank you for popping by

♥ Heartfelt Christmas ♥




What a delight to be able to sit down this afternoon and make this little felt heart Christmas decoration for my mum
I used my Wplus9 heart dies (which also cut through felt like butter) the little tree die is from Clearly besotted and the little heart from Papertrey.  I used jute & a white jingle bell so it can hang from your tree or from a peg rack or door handle
I got these white jingle bells on Ebay ages ago, quite hard to find, does anyone know anywhere else who sells them??

♥ Holiday hugs ♥


I'm getting into the festive mood ... I looove Christmas so much and I really enjoy making my own tags for special peoples Christmas gifts also they are cute to hang on your Christmas tree, I like to do this myself :)
This tag is from Papertrey as is the sentiment, which I stamped on a Lil' inkers stitched banner die cut and the mittens are 3d stickers that I got ages ago and I added a pearl to each mitten and some sheer ruffle ribbon to tone in


Have a fab weekend
