Crafty Buddy Share – Fairy Pop Up Box

Hello Crafters

Hope you’re having a great week, and the inspiration is free flowing!

As promised in my last post, you can catch up here if you missed it, my craft buddy came a callin’ on Saturday, and as she is such a busy lady, we made the most of our time! We had a great time crafting, chatting and designing.

Yvonne has been crafting a long while but is limited to how much time she gets to make things, as her work is often intensive mentally and physically and long hours, which leaves little time to do what she loves, but she has worked tirelessly to ensure that she has all she needs to make sure by the time she retires, her stash will be all fired up and ready to go! Lovely lady with a great sense of human (has to have to put up with me!), with a big heart.

A while ago I made an exploding box for her birthday, and she absolutely loved it, Fairy Exploding Box.

We were discussing my recent purchase of Marianne Craftables Pop Up Box and we decided to make, would you believe, a fairy pop up box! I have blogged about this die before, but genuinely believe it is worth every penny.

So without further ado, here is her creation and inspiration:

Isn’t that a wonderful little box!

Here’s the items she used:

Well thank you for coming and joining us in our Craft Buddy share.

Have a great week!

In The Jungle….

Hello Crafters

Well here as promised is the latest fun box (as I call them) for you, and this one is a birthday box for a child, or adult if they love nanimals! 🙂

This one I started by cutting the box and using distress inks, coloured the inside and outside to create an open field feeling. Cut some grass for them to stand on. Using the trees and leaves that come with the pop up box die, I cut four trees in various off cuts of card. I then added the nanimals and added the sentiments to finish with tags.

Items Used:

This is available to purchase here – Shop

Aren’t they just the cutest things, well no doubt I will bore you to tears after I get over my obsession, as there are loads of ideas floating around, so normal service will probably not be resumed for quite a while!

Have a great week

A New Addition!

Hello Crafters

It seems the sunshine has bought out the best in people as I have been reading blogs and all of them seems so…..well full of sunshine, and happy thoughts and colours. Isn’t it amazing what a little sunshine can do?

Today I am sharing with you another happy note in that my colleague in Canada has become a grandmother again for the second time in 2 weeks! So you just have to wish a newborn soul a big hello, and I did this in a way that I could send the card without too much expense, but with the appearance of a box, which you all know by now, is getting to be a real passion with me……….

I have gone completely ga-ga (if I wasn’t already that is) over the Marianne Design Eline’s Dies. This box took around 3 hours to make, but I was just having so much fun in putting it together I actually didn’t want to stop, I only had to as it was nearly 1am and I had to go to work the next day! This work thing does get in the way you know….(she huffs)!

In this box I used the following:

Again I used lots of scraps for majority of the cuts, only full sheets for the main box.

Well hope you all had a good weekend, and I will post another box on Wednesday, hope to see you then!
