Birthday card for a friend



I whipped this up on friday night, WDYT? The colours a a little different IRL they are more of a musky pink purple and dark plum purple.

This is the froggy I made for the maternal softie swap, the little girl who it was made for loves it, and gave it lots of hugs when her Mummy gave it to her.

My first paying job!




As the title states, I did my first paying job! It was for a lovely mummy-to-be for her forthcoming baby shower's.

It is the same as the kitchen tea invites (see below) with a bit of tweaking here and there.

I am hoping this could turn into an ongoing thing, I would love to be able to earn money from doing creative stuff. Anyway, I loved doing these and can't wait for the next job!

Kitchen Tea invite finished





Here is the final result of the Kitchen tea invite, I have printed them on matte photo paper at a Kodak Kiosk, which I wasn't overly happy with, the colour came out a little crap but it still looks ok, I then mounted them on metallic card stock with a baby blue grosgrain ribbon to fasten.

So I finally finished

The softie for the maternal swap!!!!!!

But forgot to take a pic of it before I posted it, so as soon as Sarah posts a pic of it I'll post it here!

I was quite happy with how it turned out, and the invisable stitching turned out better than I had thought too. I'm going to make one for Kate with green and brown polkadot materal.

Frou Frou Tutu!


How cute is this? I am so going to make this maybe for a little girl who's second bday is coming up!!! I might try my hand at some wings as well! You can find the Tute here .

My list seems to be growing and growing of gorgeous thing I want to make.

5 down 5 to go...



Well I'm at the half way mark with my felt book for the Vana CFAC (crafting for a cause) Its so bloody exhausting and all i'm doing to blanket stitch geee's!

Thought I would show off a card I made Dad for Fathers day last year I think. The technique is call tea bag folding (I think) and the paper is Japanese paper, not sure of the make. I think it turned out ok, I used some gold trim to make the obi.

It's been a while...

Since I have posted anything, I've been having a bit of a craft clog, I haven't had the urge to do anything new :(. Hopefully when i get into our own place I can set my self up and actually get some things done.

One thing I have decided tho this week is to make MCN's (Modern Cloth Nappies) and try them with nono. I love the prints you can get for them. So we shall see how we go with them.
