Easter Treats!

This is the cutest little sweet box I have ever come across! When I seen the mini egg boxes in the spring/summer Stampin UP catalogue I knew that I had to get them. I am sending these out to my family and friends instead of a huge easter eggs, I will of course put a few small eggs into them!. Another must buy for me was the Basket Builder bundle. It is perfect for Easter but like every Stampin Up products it can be mixed up to suit any occasion. Some of the ideas I have in mind for it are spring cards and packaging, birthdays, get well soon and thank you cards/3D designs. Pinterest is full of brilliant ideas! Click on the pinterest logo at the top of my page to follow me!. If you would like a copy of Stampin Up spring/summer catalogue send me a private message and I will post a copy to you or you can view a digital copy by clicking here. AND remember if you buy £45 worth of products before the 31st March you can pick some awesome free products or if you sign up you can get £130 worth of product for only £99 plus an awesome 20%-25% only all other stamp sets!

Christmas Madness!

The madness of Christmas is in full force at the moment. A few weeks ago I held my 2nd craft fair in aid of raising funds for my local community hall. It was a great success with lots of positive feed back, I forgot to take a picture of my stall,sorry! I have been keeping myself busy with lots of customised orders and attending other craft fairs, as a customer this time. It is great to be able to look around and appreciate the amount of talented makers and unique products on offer. This is a custom order for a baby’s first christmas I have made, apologies for the terrible photos!

Birthday Boxes

birthday-box-1birthday-box-4birthday-box2Whenever I am giving my family and friends gifts I always love to try to add the ‘handmade touch’. These little boxes are 6cmx6cm, each box is made from 1 A4 sheet of card. It was a great way for me to use up little scraps of card and embellishments that I had lying around. My plan is to put sweets into them and give them out as a little extra birthday surprise.

Hi my name is Ashlinn….

Hi everyone it has been a long time since I last posted on here, over a year in fact! Life got very business and my crafting time had to be put too one side. Since I last posted I have welcomed a baby boy into our family, he has just turned one and is growing at a crazy rate. My little girl is growing too fast as well, she is now two. So as you can imagine life is crazy with two toddlers exploring the world! We have also moved house, back out to the beautiful country side of Northern Ireland. My husband and I where both raised in the country side so that is where we feel at peace.

When we moved house I had to say good-bye to my craft room. I now have a craft corner, 7 months later I am still experimenting with how I can get it to work best for me! I am currently helping to organise a craft fair with the local community group. Which mean I am now filling these dark cold evening with  lots of Christmas crafts for my stall, I love Christmas. This is my latest card design which I have made i have used Stampin’ Up rubber stamp set called ‘Santa’s Gifts’. To  make the star aperture on the card I used a star Sizzix die and my  Sizzix Big Shot machine. I hope my card inspires you and I promise my next post will be sooner rather than later.

Hello Bebunni

Im a massive fan of the Create and Craft channel. I love to watch it while crafting I find it great for picking up the tips and tricks of the trade, all the new crafting trends, as well as the great products on offer. I purchased Bebunni little treasures toppers and paper a few months ago but never got round to using them! The set is made by crafters companion and the quality is amazing. I spent one day last week just using this set to make a few different cards. I experimented with a few different card styles. Im so pleased with how they have turned out, i have these cards for sale on in my etsy shop. Check it out! https://www.etsy.com/shop/RibbonandPearlsCards
