About Me

Devon, United Kingdom
My 2014 resolutions are (1) to not always take the lazy 'Copic' option, and instead reach for the paintbrush and Distress Ink reinkers, and (2) to use what stash I have and not buy more (hmm, it's probably best if you don't ask me how successful that was!). I love your feedback on my creations and I read every message, so please leave a comment, or use my sidebar 'chatbox' widget to let me know you've visited.

A 'Cracker' of a new release - Gingerbabies Hula Hoops

It's Friday so there is a new release and freebie at StampFairy called Gingerbabies Hula Hoops.

Every year I pledge to make my own Christmas Crackers.  Every year I give in and buy them.

It is so much effort to collate all the components (hats, snaps, jokes and the added pressure I put on myself to insert personalised gifts for each individual).

But this year, I am going to make the effort.  When I saw this circular image I thought it was was perfect for decorating my first one.  I'm hoping to make more over the next few weeks so I have enough in time for Christmas.  

Well, that's the plan anyway.

Either that, or we'll all have to fight over who gets this one!

Here's a preview of the set being released today:


    I've been inspired by:
    • The Crafty Pad - Scraptastic (diff scraps from the same paper set for covering the red cracker)
    • I Love Promarkers - What's Cooking (gingerbread man)
    • Creative Card Crew - Trees (on the backing paper)
    Happy Crafting
