New blog background and baby Harry!

New blog background and....

A4 card for school to celebrate the birth of baby Harry. I loved how this one turned out - I used my Cricut New Arrival cart and the little babies are Elyzibelles stamps (so sad that they've closed down). Background from Papermania,Wild Orchid flowers finish it off.

Arty Farty Angel Cradle

Here's another crafty make , this time an Arty Farty Angel Crib for a different work colleague.  This was the first time I have made this type of cradle.  It was a bit easier than the large cot but the box was a bit fiddly.  I made a pair of baby shoes to go inside and then used my Cricut to decorate the outside box and the ends of the cradle.

Arty Farty Cherish Basket

Here's tonight's posting!

I made this from an Arty Farty template (Cherish) for a work colleague - to go with the socks. This one was quite easy to make.  I added loads of lace around the basket stand.  The hood and apron were run through my swiss dots embossing folder to add some texture and the box is made from Kanban embossed white card. I was really happy with this one and my friend had a tear in his eye when I gave it to him!   I've made another for the other friend's baby which is a different pattern.  I'll post that tomorrow.  Off to make a card now.

Yummy Cupcakes!

I have so neglected my little blog and my followers over the last couple of months, really sorry.  We lost my lovely Mum in Law last month and I just haven't got round to adding to my blog.  I haven't been idle mind you, I've made loads of cards and other things so will try and add a few each week until I'm up to date.
Well here's today's offering.  We have had two new babies at work and I have made cards and cribs which I'll upload another day but in the meantime this is what I've been doing today.  I used 10 pairs of Mothercare socks which resulted in 5 cupcakes each. They are just rolled up with a flower in the top and plonked in a paper cake case - you can find how to on You tube.  I made the boxes, they're a bit rough but I was tired by the time I finished . They'll do for school tomorrow anyway.  I'll add the cards etc over the next week - I've still got loads to make!!
Catch you all later!! :)

The ribbon's squiffy 'cos the glitter on the flower was still wet at the time!
