Pot of Dreams moneybox

Hello everyone, hope you are having a lovely Sunday.
Today I have made something special for my daughter. She was wanting a Pot of Dreams moneybox to put savings in for Christmas. When she realised she had to smash it to get the money out she soon went off the idea so I made her something similar.  I will let you guess what the essential basic item was that I used. I then added freebie papers which I got from Summer Driggs, ribbon, gems, stickles, some hanging tags (cut from Memory Box dies) and a digi image from Saturated Canary. Sophie has a pink bedroom so I wanted to stick to that colour and make it very girly for her. The lid is glued on so that she isnt tempted to dip in whilst saving and we will probably cut a hole in the bottom once its full and then add another plastic cap so that she can reuse it!
Here is a view of the back...

...and a close up of the Saturated Canary digi image. 
I hope you have enjoyed looking at this different item. Please leave any comments as it would be good to hear what people think about it.
Happy crafting everyone, see you soon

Favour boxes

Hi all, hope you are keeping well and havent got any more of that white stuff laying around!!
Today's item Im showing is some favour boxes I made. I bought the template when I went to a craft show last week at Bluewater. These can be used for any occasion but I've started off with Easter and Valentine's Day. I cut the template out, glued it together then added the ribbon and stickles. I finished off with a few mini chocolate eggs in the Easter boxes......

....and in the Valentine ones I put some heart chocolates. The variety is endless as you can either make them all one colour or mix and match.
I hope you like these and will visit again soon.
Happy crafting

Saturated Canary Baby Girl

Hello all, hope you are managing to keep warm on this cold day. Today's card is for a new baby girl. The image is from Saturated Canary and as soon as I saw it I knew it was one that needed to be in my collection!!!!
I used a square scalloped card and mat and layered with some papers from a Docrafts pack (sorry I cant remember the name of it!). I used a scalloped oval nestie to mat the picture on and finished with card candy and a greeting which includes the baby's name, weight and date of birth. I coloured the digi image with Promarkers.
Please feel free to leave any comments and I look forward to you visiting again soon.
Happy crafting
