There are a ton of amazing crafters in this line up, please make sure to check them all out. There are some PRIZES up for grabs as well! All you need to do is comment on all the blogs for your chance to win!

Now on to my project!! Here is what I made......


A gorgeous Tea Light gift set for a Co-worker who is leaving us next week.



Jaded Blossom's Stamps used:  Daisies and Coworkers
Jaded Blossom's Dies used: Goody Bag, Stitched Circles and Treat Tag


The Daisies stamp set is a fabulous set to use for this project as it has a solid stamp you can use for the Tea Lights and then your Outline stamp for your tag. I have also used the small Daisy stamp for the hole reinforcer to add a splash of colour.

Never let go of Hope

You all know by now that I love Jaded Blossom stamps and dies!

Well, Jaded Blossom are having their 2nd Customer Contest! 
I know right - how awesome is that!!!! 

All you have to do is to make a project using Jaded Blossom Stamps - at least one - and dies.

Well I for one love a contest - so here is my entry


I couldn't show you before as seeing as everyone is voting, we were not allowed to show then until voting closed so no-one knew who made what!

I used 4 JB products - Candy Caddy, Candy Charms and Banner dies with Daisies, Awareness Candies stamps.

I think it would made an awesome Wedding favour, but this one is for a Cancer fighter!

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB

 Here is my layout:

I have used a lot of different products with this layout.

Scrap With Reach 12x12 PP called "Memory Lane", Prima's 6x6 "Time Travelers Memories",
Kaisercraft templates, Gesso, Gelato in "Solid Ink", Jaded Blossom "Fall Dies", Tim Holtz Dtsress Paint in "Rusty Hinge", SU Card stock and candy dots and my Title is from a Treasure Box file I purchased.

I would love to see what creations you can cook up for this challenge!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas !!!!!

Well they tell me it's never to early to start with Christmas idea's!

So here's what I have been playing with this week - my cameo and vinyl.

A couple of tiles

I think I need to pop a saying around my stable plate - get my mind to it!

Hope you like them and yes, it is never to early to start!

Hey Gnomie!

How cute is this little guy!

I made this little Goody Bag using the Jaded Blossom Goody Bag die and the Gnomies Forever stamp set.

It has a packet of tissues inside - I gave it to one of the Resident's I care for who loves Gnomes.


You know he almost looks like Santa!

Bah Humbug Grinch light

I saw this technique on pinterest a few weeks back and thought I'd give it a go.

I made this for a Crafters Choice Challenge at Jaded Blossom.

This is with the light turned off
 With the light turned on

How cute is he.....hahahaha Bah Humbug!

The Grinch I cut in vinyl using my Cameo and the tags are Jaded Blossom Mini Tags dies (both sets) with their Bah Humbug stamp set.

Congratulations

Here are 2 cards I had a play around with by using a sketch I saw on pinterest.

I used the same elements but changed the sentiments.




I think they turned out ok for a quick simple card.

SSQ27 Road Trip

Here's my entry into the Soul Scrapper Quest Challenge over at Soul Scrappers.

We were given a theme of "Road Trip" and posted some bits and bobs to create a layout with.
We are required to use all of the pieces sent - you can modify, colour, etc to suit your layout.

Here's my entry:


I managed to use all my bits which surprised me.
I was inspired by another SS member's tag on one of her layouts (Rita) and used my muslin over my tag, adding colour using my Gelato's.I used my plumbers mesh as a mask with some 3D Gloss Gel and ink refill added for colour.My long strip of pp I cut into strips to take advantage of the strips as they match up with my photo.No journaling - will add at a later date.

Until next time, Happy Crafting....YCB
