Latest Craft Finds...

Hey there! Hope all's well in craft land.

Quick post to share some amazing craft finds from my impromptu shopping trip last evening. I'm funny like that, I get excited about happy little things like this :)

Okay, first up, I found these cute little bling stickers at the dollar store. Awesome for card making. They're actually cell phone decorating stickers but oh so perfect as sparkly borders on cards or layouts. They come in long strips and are self adhesive, but I could always snip off individual gems if I wanted to...

Then I got this roll of gorgeous turquoise blue sheer ribbon...

And some diamante buckles, so pretty!

What else did I get? Oh yeah, these awesome chipboard letters. They were on sale at Riot craft store, obviously I grabbed three! Thought they'd be cool for scrapbook layouts. I got them in natural finish so I can alter them as I want...

And then, this arrived in my mail, finally! So excited about inking up this baby...

So that's what I was all chuffed about. See you soon with some creations using these darling little finds.

Happy Crafting!

First Silhouette Project + Some Love ♥

Hey you lovely talented people!

I opened my B'day present :) It's all so shiny 'n' new and so exciting! I made these super simple, but kinda cute carrot tags for Easter.

I'm yet to explore the possibilities and options on my new Silhouette. This one was quite a simple project - I drew the carrot and the leaves separately and then cut them out. (The sound it made as it cut was like music to my ears, LOL). Assembled the tags by gluing on the leaves and adding raffia twine. Easy breezy :)

My excitement about using my latest, most favourite craft machine is probably very amusing to husby darling. I'm like a little girl who's going to school for the first time, and excited about all the new books and bag and everything. I keep telling him how many fun things I could make using it and clap my hands with glee, every time :)

Onto some blog world love now ♥ Tejal from Creative Expressions gave me this award. Thanks Tejal! Very sweet of you to have thought of me for this :)

The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.

To accept the award, you must:
1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.

Now, I'd like to pass on this award to some wonderful crafters -
Sigh! So much love to share and spread in our very own lovely little blog land :)

Happy Crafting! (and cooking!)
