Watering Can

I first saw this cute watering can on Philippa's site (Cards from the Cauldron). The template is from Splitcoast Stampers (see here). As you can see I have used my favourite colour scheme again (I am starting to think I need to branch out a little!!!).

They are so cute and sooo easy to make - you could fill them with anything - some paper flowers, or chocolates!

Regional Swaps & Milk Carton Box

I'm back. I was starting to have serious withdrawal symptoms from not having my trusty computer - there are so many blogs to catch up on.

As I mentioned I attended the Stampin Up Regionals, and here are my Regional Swaps. I love this colour scheme - Kraft, Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip - YUM.

I only managed to make approx 26 swaps, here is what they look like all packaged up in cellophane bags.

This next picture is of a matching Milk Carton Box set (I got the template from Becky Roberts). There was one of these milk cartons in this colour scheme at the Regionals (unfortunately I didn't get the name of the person who had made it), and as it matched my card, I thought I would do a matching set.

Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Will be back soon

Just a quick post to let you know I haven't fallen off the planet - however I am without my trusty Apple Mac notebook at the moment : (

I think I am starting to get withdrawals from my usual evening blog hopping - it's all very sad. I hope to be back online by end of next week (fingers crossed).

BTW I had a great time at the Regionals last weekend with the girls, it was my first time and it was lots of fun - I will be sure to post my swap when I get up and running again.

Well - "I'll Be Back" (as Arnie would say).

Simply Holidays Project

I have been doing a number of classes recently, these are a great way to get inspiration. The talented Heather Summers is running Simply Holidays (20 projects over 20 days), each project has a video and pdf (click here for more information).

This was Project #2, Box of Tags. Each box contains 6 tags that sit in a slotted base.

I love the soft blues and browns (its a little bit non-traditional).

Had to try it in traditional colours too.

Coffee Treat Box - UStamp

YEAH its Friday. I love it when it gets to Friday (and even more when it gets to Friday night).

You may have guessed that I have been doing UStamp. This next project was based on the Coffee Treat Box designed by Tracey Old for UStamp Fall (see hers here).

When you take off the belly band it opens up to a box with two sections. I added some Cappuccino sachets, some chocolate (have to have chocolate) and some sugar (or sweetner to compensate for the chocolate!). I have to say the chocolate only lasted long enough to take the picture - LOL.

Hope you have a great weekend.
