Name banner

I wrote in a previous post that I had been trying lots of different things in my crafting – using chipboard was one of them.

This set of scalloped banners is from Tando Creative. There are 5 inner pieces and 5 scalloped outers in the pack.SAM_0319

I’m going to do one for each of our Grandchildren, luckily they all have short names. This is the first of those for the youngest.

SAM_0436I’ve sponged acrylic paint over the scalloped pieces and coloured the edges with Smooch ink in green. SAM_0434

The inner pieces have been covered in pretty paper from K & Co. I cut letters with my craft Robo Lite and after colouring them with Promarkers covered them in glossy accents.


I added a large flower to the first piece and lots of embellishments to the others – flowers, brads, buttons, ribbons etc., the pieces have been tied together with narrow ribbon, a ‘made with love’ charm hung from the end and braid attached to enable it to be hung.

Card & pressie

Showing the card and jewellery gifts I made for my daughter-in-law’s birthday last week.

The pearlescent backer and patterned paper are both from a pack I had from Crafter’s Companion some time ago.

SAM_0480The pretty little dream catcher embellishment is from a necklace I found recently in a fashion shop which was closing down. I simply removed it from it's original cord and attached a couple of jump rings so that it hangs freely. Topped off with a small pink organza bow I think it looks a lot nicer than it did hanging from the beaded cord.SAM_0483The border is a Martha Stewart punch and card candy finishes the it off nicely.

I put my newly acquired beading skills to good use and made a set of earrings, necklace and bracelet with small blue beads.SAM_0475SAM_0477
