Your FREE Digi-Stamp is here for Nov/Dec - Apologies for being a bit late with this one but life's been hectic and what with Christmas coming etc., etc, etc.,

Anyway, hope you like it and can use it for lots of things.  Add it to your cards as an embellishment or increase the size and make it the main feature.

My new stamp designs sets will be coming soon... I can't wait to use them - there are trees, fences, landscape scenes, flowers and more.....  They compliment the first Landscape scenes perfectly too so watch this space for the new arrivals.....

Countdown to Christmas - Fridge Magnets

I made this project using Magnetic Shim sheets from XCut. As they are magnetic and sticky-backed, you can attach paper and embellishments and create your own Fridge Magnets or use them in the car, bedroom, school projects etc.

Great for changing the numbers for an Advent Calendar. 
Make learning fun too. This idea could be used to help teach children to spell etc.,
Make all the letters of the alphabet or make numbers and use it as an aid to maths.  The possibilities are endless.

Recycle to Create Lovely Table Decorations

Recycled Bottle Table Decoration
This table decoration was made using a Tonic Bottle. I am well into recycling and try and find things around the house to use. Besides that, this was a good excuse to finish a Gin and Tonic as this table decoration is made with a Tonic bottle, which had to be empty of course...... I hope you like it and are inspired to create your own works of art using recycled products.


Cut the bottom off a lemonade and tonic bottle. You will see they are shaped so follow the shapes, rounding off the sections to form petals and you will create your two flowers, one bigger than the other (which fit inside one another to create a flower).

Colour the plastic with permanent markers.

Piece a hole in each of the outside  "petals" and add a jump ring. Add chain to this ring all around the flower.
Add a crystal bead to a head pin and form a loop which you can then attach to each of the jump rings. Hey presto you have your table decoration.
I also coloured a candle T-Light with permanent markers too to match the colour of the candle-holder.
